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?


  1. Absolutely and it makes me want to go for a breast reduction, what a youthful decollate.

    So glad things are somewhat calmer for you.

    1. Heavens - don't say such a thing! But luckily I know your wildly witty Scottish sarcasm, so that comment shall be taken with a pinch of salt. Yes, he is much better again this morning, so I can breathe again. x

  2. Virginia, I think she's hungry! Lovely clothes as always from S & T. Annie x

  3. Hello Virginia:
    Yes, the images do have a very special quality to them, often difficult to pinpoint.

    We do so hope that over the weekend your husband's recovery will continue apace.

  4. I find these absolutely lovely and haunting but the clothes really wearable too.

    But truly, all I care about hearing is that things are getting better there. Little by little and hooray!

    With a warm hug, friend,

  5. Love the images Virginia, they are indeed beautiful.
    Hope you are ok, and that hubby is on the mend.
    My thoughts are with you all, hugs

  6. Very Bill Henson! I love her collar bones though. And her arms. Would love to have 16-year-old arms like that again...
    S&T is a gorgeous brand. The last dress is beautiful.
    Do hope your darling husband is on the mend. Hope you're faring okay too.
