DARK ROMANCE

This most glorious campaign by one of my favorite luxe online retailers has fast become my go to for inspiration of any kind. Despite encountering this a few weeks back, I’m not entirely sure why I’ve refrained from sharing until now; keeping it solely for myself, but better late than never.

Nowadays, when we envision vampy looks we immediately visualise a style pertaining elusively with dark lips and possibly kohl lined eyelids. That seems to be the current definition of it anyway, though be it horribly incorrect. For me vamp is attitude, a strong, edgy inner confidence not bound by trends nor rules. And this campaign highlights my point perfectly. Nude lips, black assembled on black and strength to boot. Of course access to an abandoned residence in LA helps intensify the grunge, punk rock elements; as does your pick of anything McQueen.

Love.
