Fashion Editorial: Exotic Inspiration

Ellen Von Unwerth’s photos always blow my mind. She’s one of the most incredible women behind a camera. Her work is sexy (and fun), utterly captivating, unabashed and full of rock n’ roll attitude (how does she keep getting so many gorgeous pictures?).

Her June 2016 shoot for Vogue Japan, “An Exotic Sense of Destiny”, is like entering a 1930’s opium den of decadence. I’m obsessed with this shoot from the vintage style sets, excessive textures, rich fabrics, thick satin’s, whimsical lace and exotic velvet layering. Inspired by the shoot, I’ve mixed in some of my favourite exotic vintage interiors too. Let your mind run free.
