Painterly Opulence

I have already obsessed about my love for Mary Katrantzou's work. So when these gorgeous editorial images of her AW11/12 collection surfaced; I couldn't have been more thrilled! The series were produced by A Magazine in conjunction with Nomenus Quarterly (the World's priciest magazine) and were shot by NY based Erik Madigan Heck; who also happens to be the founder of Nomenus Quarterly. 

Heck "tr[ied] to flatten the space between photography and illustration by eliminating photographic elements and painting on different surfaces and colors in post-production, attempting to move closer towards painting itself, in process and form.”

I love how the painterly feel  of the editorial, lends fluidity to Katrantzou's predominantly structural collection; and the way her prints blend in with the opulent interior sets to enhance this aesthetic!
