For this inspirational shoot, we wanted to capture Iceland's stubbornly resilient character and contrast that with its more delicate features. We chose to use a grand backdrop of impressive wide landscape, just a short drive from the country's capital. Our Reykjavik-native model Hjordis braved the elements in an embellished mesh dress with layered tulle skirt, and intricate sequin beading by NEEDLE & THREAD. The stunning lavender, peach and eucalyptus bouquet by BLOMA NATTURA, contained subtle references to Iceland's autonomous spirit, featuring an asymmetrical design and a variety of wild greens and gentle blooms. The elegant paper design by EMILY KATHRYN, featuring an intricate custom typeface and swash strokes for days, complemented our desired look to perfection."
