For my still life project, the concept was crime and murder. I took inspiration from Film Noir and its shadowy light, to give the picture a luxurious and bold texture. I used accessories from many different brands, such as Topshop, Zara, Banana Republic, Christian Louboutin (thanks you Rafa!!) and others, together with vintage props, old books and photographs, and a television, that I bought on ebay from 0.99 pounds (!!!!!!), and I broke it myself (in the middle of the street, after several attemps). A special thank you for Ling Zhu, that assisted me in this photoshoot, and to Rafaella Zannettou and Jacquelene Chan who let me borrow their things!
Yes! Menswear! And no! No hot guys. Ok, maybe there is a significant amount of hot guys, but the exercise here is to look for the styling, and again, for some inspiration for my next shoot. We have to come up with 5 ideas for a menswear shoot, and suiting or naked bodies doesn't count. So, looking at Fashionisto, I found this beautiful editorial from MISTER MUSE, beautiful pictures by Serge Leblon. This in particularly is not about the styling but about the mood and images that have such a nice feeling and touch to it. Hope you like it as much as I did.

Looking foward for the final project, but I haven't even started!!! So, the new idea is to mix fashion with art, play a little with the images in a way that you won't recognize if it's a picture or a painting. I want to give life to my magazine, a bright and free spirit, an artistic spirit. Really don't know if that's going to happen, but is just an idea...
