For the September 2012 issue, boundaries are pushed with the Harper's Bazaar Hong Kong Erotica editorial.
It's rare to find spread that is exemplary in its showcase of high fashion, visual exorbitance and taboo symbolism. Models Olga G and Maria Izyumova toy with themes of unmentionable religious deviance as they don edgy garments by Dolce & Gabbana, Pierre Balmain and Jean Paul Gaultier. These set the sensuous mood for the monochromatic editorial that follows with sleek leather and lace motifs.
Photographer Ethan Zhong perfectly captures the energy that comes with forbidden pleasures. The most striking facet of this piece is perhaps the contrasting mix of the religion with sexuality. Although the paradox is not new, it serves as a deviant theme for this editorial.
