Dark intrigue

“A palette of black and blood-red takes haute-chic looks over to the dark side. Mix gothic lace, velvet and hard-edged embellishment, and conjour this season’s poisonously sexy, feminine glamour.”

This girl has a serious air of Grace Jones about her. The juggernaut expression, full lips and arms and legs that seem to go on for miles all give pulse-quickening impact. The juxtapostion of her striking, angular physique against the rural English country garden backdrop – adorned in tactile textiles of sumptuous velvet, bewelled lace, heavy chainmail and delicate feathers - has a breathtaking effect, and shows off the statement pieces to their full, show-stopping potential.
