Harper's Bazaar China's 'The Look of Love' story centers around a theme of young love and highlights nostalgic fashion staples. Channeling a school girl, model Allie Barrett poses alongside love interest and co-star Ryan Keating. The models are captured in the suburbs while reading, doing homework or simply pondering life.

This romantic editorial is captured by photographer Shxpir and marries provocative and innocent imagery to bring its young love theme to life. Styling for the editorial is courtesy of Xiao Mu Fan who dresses Allie in collegiate separates like pleated skirts and preppy knits while dressing co-star Ryan in plaid trousers and tweed blazers.

Hair styling for this editorial is courtesy of Gareth Bromell who looks to the 70s for his inspiration. Brombell collaborates with makeup artist Sun Qi who also opts for retro and fresh-faced beauty applications.
