What happens when Greg Kadel and Daphne Groeneveld work together? A funky photoshoot with a result that rocks.
Being put in an overload of accessories by Dolce & Gabbana, Proenza Schouler, Prada and other greatnesses, Daphne appears like Barbie who tries to find herself in this year’s trends. The focus on accessories gets triggered by its exaggeration and the special effects on the photos themselves that resulted in Numéro’s 124th issue underline a girly-gone-mad-mood. Pink and literal white hair appear like candy floss on Daphne’s head which builds a great contrast to strong eye-dos and wild mixtures of colours the different accessories bring with them.
Looking at the pictures over and over again always makes me discover something new, something that builds and adds another, more defined statement and image to the picture.
While she’s the Indian burlesque-bride on one photo, she plays the sexy rock-chick with a blue coloured toll on the other.
From coloured foxtails and other lovely fur details to fish net optic – modern meets cheap and the unexpected seems to be possible again. While I personally prefer leaving out the fish net on my hands as the latest gloves-to-wear, feathers still seem to be a hot and more present than I expected them to be.
Another notable, “new” accessory: Buttons. Buttons preferably as parts of bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Not yet convincing enough to wear them but strong enough to bring out an amazing result.
