The Harper's Bazaar Hong Kong June 2012 'Angelic Sensation' spread focuses exclusively on formal sapphire-hued apparel. The glittering blue shades are reminiscent of aquatic sets, an interesting choice considering the dry and entirely barren desert backdrop.
The beauty of Angelic Sensation can be attributed to the work of photographer Justin Cooper. His snapshots of model Shiyu Liao's shadows as they cascaded along the beige slopes of sand added to the editorial's lonesome feel.
Tracy On's stylistic vision shone through Angelic Sensation via ruffled angular pieces, long cut out dresses and tight leather minis. These eclectic ensembles provide a glamorous yet futuristic take on high fashion, effectively proving that while distinct, the two styles are hardly antithetical to one another.
