The Emperors Black Rose photo series is enchantingly dark, inspired by the edgy, gothlike fashion that it is purported to showcase. As though centered on a coven of witches, each portrait is even more compelling than the next. I especially like the Snow White homage it seems to pay due to the apple motif seen throughout.
Photographed and post-produced by Federico Cabrera, with assistance from Emma Hedenborg and Udi Salminen, the Emperors Black Rose photo series is part of GILLES ET DADA's latest lookbook. Inspired by ideas of enemies, illusions, nightmares and imagination, this shoot is incredibly creative.
The Emperors Black Rose photo series stars models Anette M and Eetu. Their hair and makeup was done by Marii Sadrak, and the shoot was styled by Jasmin Mishima.
