Oyster Fashion'a 'LUNAR-SEA' fashion story captures conceptual portraits that depict a group of mermaid subjects. While some of the underwater beings are glamorous and sultry in their appearance, others appear to channel otherworldly creatures that are something between a human and a fish.

This conceptual portrait set displays both beautiful and monstrous elements that range from stunning wigs and cosmetic applications to face-concealing tentacles and erosion-inspired face paint applications.

Photographer Byron Spencer captures a rich wardrobe of one-off pieces from designer Pauly Bonomelli who runs edgy fashion label Hi Mum I'm Dead. The ensembles are adorned with sequins and embroidery and evoke a visually opulent aesthetic.
