INSPIRATION: Creem’s ‘In the Shadows’ Editorial

I love a good eerie and evocative editorial! And Creem Magazine’s ‘In the Shadows’ is no exception! Shot by Paris-based photographer Susanne Stemmer,  and featuring the clothing and jewelry designs of Ale Elsbacher, the series depicts a regality to the darkness that surrounds the photoshoot.

I’m drawn in by the swirling, smoky atmosphere and ethereal lighting which lends a mystical, surreal quality to the shots. The soft makeup, executed by  Birgit Fuchs, looks suitably off centre when paired with disheveled hair and bejewelled, off-kilter crowns.

I love how its styled and accessorised stars; scraps of fishnet-mesh hairpieces; knitted sweaters and puffed shoulder tank tops. Opulent pearl headpieces that shine in the light. The styling is subtly eccentric and very feminine, heightening an imaginative narrative.

Almost otherwordly, like a past memory brought to life amidst a sea of misty smoke and sparks.
