Entitled 'Beautiful is Just Another Degree of Terrible', this collection of accessories by Melissanthi Spei embraces a conceptual vision of fashion. The Greek-born and London-based designer aims to explore cultural issues through her accessory creations by mixing artful design details with elements that are practical for their wearer.

Photographer Nikolas Ventourakis captures the designer's groundbreaking collection in a catalog image series that features redhead model beauty Claudia Devlin. This sculptural line of accessories shines a light on ruffled sculptural volumes as well as leather harness holsters that are constructed with a mix of both organic and industrial materials.

Moreover, Melissanthi Spei showcases durable leather constructions alongside moss-made headpieces and belts that are fit for a woodland nymph.
