The last and fourth installment of the editorials made in collaboration with the London College of Style made by their styling students. This time the story called “Linen Waves” was made by stylists Ana Regidor, Emily Paul, and Olivia Ann Wood along with photographer Dean Dumaré, starring models Blu and Valentin Tymchenko from Select Models London.
“On-duty sincerity meets sea shanty swing, on set beachside on the decks of the quintessential pirate’s pub, The Prince of Whitby, on Wapping wild side of the East London Thames, est. 1520.
Ukrainian-born model Valentin’s gaze mixes mourning with optimism as he heads towards horizons, those of the other side of the flat edge of the New World of London’s 1500’s explorer, and the repeated futures of current conflicts. What is unearthed once the waters wash away? The vibrancy of the green algae shocks with the synthetics of technical fabric vest in turquoise.
The team had their own adventure too – unpredictable and tumultuous weathers, thunder and lightning and downpours, flooded the shingles and caused the crew to seek shelter for much of the day, an opportunity to flavour the cask ales? The shoot captures an escape from the indoors, a moment of freedom, jackets off, all aboard.”Olivia Ann Wood, Stylist
