Photographer James Tolich captures 'Hotel Life,' an Oyster Magazine editorial that is both melancholy and visually bold. This photoshoot features model Emma Laird who poses inside an opulent hotel room. Laird dons a wardrobe of retro staples with a 60s flair but seems lonely despite of her luxurious accommodations.

The model is captured as she ponders life or lays on the floor and even while staring at the walls of her elegant hotel room. This editorial by James Tolich boasts wardrobe styling by Janai Anselmi and highlights fashions from H&M, Kate Sylvester and Karen Walker among other labels.

This editorial's set design is courtesy of Danielle Selig and appears cinematic thanks to its blend of pastel hues and dramatic decor accents.
