“The earth is heavy and opaque without dreams.” – Anais Nin
This summer I had the opportunity to bring to light a new dreamy and young project with the help of a wonderful creative team in Romania. Beautiful Irina was delicately embellished with dresses that reminded of the nature’s beauty and of the ancestral origins of the world. Perfectly fitting into the surrounding nature and with a muted make-up done by Camelia that recalled of an Austen romantic time, vibrant locks arranged to match nature’s aesthetics by Larisa, Irina become the promise of a spiritual connection with the ethereal world. The sentiment was of a young, romantic, whimsical and nostalgic dream of the natural beauty of the woods. Layers and folds, textures and patterns were arranged carefully by Iustina juxtaposing the traditional Romanian spirit with the endless beauty of nature. An ethereal and pristine forest found by my better half became thus the place to explore nostalgia and longing.
Flares of sun reminded of a cosmos of search of meaning and transcendence in a Renoiresque celebration with diffuse reflections. Leaves of Grass become thus an exploration of matter and energy and captures the nostalgia and longing for immediate, pleasing and simple nature.
