Hauntingly Beautiful :: images of scanlan + theodore

This set of hauntingly beautiful photographs
has been commissioned by Scanlan + Theodore,
to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

The images capture a melancholy drama,
which gives the images a raw beauty,
allowing the clothes to revel in their textured simplicity.
It's not the usual fashion shoot,
but then s + t are not the usual clothes, either.
The photographs have a much grittier, more emotional edge,
where the clothes take a secondary role, almost, 
to the facial & body expression.

Is it a sadness? Or a defiance?
Is she utterly lost in wistful thought? 
Not sure, but it is very arresting,
as art as well as fashion.

And it is certainly hauntingly beautiful,
don't you think?
