Styling: Funambules

Exciteddddd! It is always such a treat to see your work being published <3 In the September issue of Dark Beauty Magazine, you will find this gorgeous shoot I styled a few months ago. I already showed you some behind the scenes images and now I'll show you the actual pictures. Shot by Eva Krebbers and produced by my dearest hair guru Madame de Pompadour

Funambules

Where ‘haute couture’ hair meets intricate rope patterns
Blinded by clichés, we sometimes tend to overlook true craftsmanship. Where the word ‘bondage’ instantly rings a kink-ish bell and ‘hairstyling’ is now represented in a 1001 cosmetic commercials, the definition and skill behind those words get lost. However, creating the most extravagant hairdos has been an art form throughout human history as well as the techniques used in Japanese bondage. Ancient cultures have enjoyed and cherished both disciplines throughout the centuries. Now they are combined, complementing each other in these photos while creating a balance between imagination and art. This project is all about capturing these two crafts from history, to set them in a new light and perhaps even let them be redefined by the eye of the beholder….

  2. ♥ the rope...
    the combination of bondage-art and fashion-art, shows that bondage/kink isn't scary and freaky, but that it can be someting beautifull
