One of the most compelling ways to appreciate fashion is to observe it against the backdrop of nature's remarkable beauty. Lost World by Akiss Paraskevopoulos is set in a breathtaking Australian scene of corroded limestone boulders.
The exquisite intricacies of the rocky layers, carved and hollowed over thousands of years brings out the the detail in the garments' pleated materials and fragility in the diaphanous fabrics. The stone undergoes a bewitching transition from soft creamy hues to dark ashen pigments, enhancing the values in the shadowy volumes of the silk, cotton and lace.
Belinda Gaffney styled the elegant Meagan Hughes for these spreads, which have a striking finished resemblance to previous collaborations between the photographer and this model. Lost World by Akiss Paraskevopoulos has that same yellowy wash that contributes an antique and fantastical aesthetic.
