This editorial featured in the April 2021 issue of ELLE Czech is called Lady of the River and was photographed in London. I talk a lot about contrast on this blog, so much so in fact, that I feel myself becoming a little repetitive. With that in mind, I can’t help but draw attention to the contrast in these photos. The moody, grey background sets the perfect scene for a cold morning in England – I can practically feel the rain in the air. Juxtapose that with the bright colours of the wardrobe of model, Galina Woodroffe and you have yourself the perfect contrast between bleak and beautiful.
I personally, find both components of these photos beautiful and believe they actually compliment each other in equal parts. Not everyone is a sucker for cold and wet weather though, so if I haven’t won you over with the background, surely you will appreciate the beautiful designs from Zimmermann, Tory Burch and Dries Van Noten.
