Vanilla Sky


PHOTOGRAPHER – Juli Balla
PUBLICATION – Black Magazine
STORY - Vanilla Sky
HAIR - Daren Borthwick
MAKE UP - Isabella Schimid

STYLIST – Janai Anselmi


Whilst in Hong Kong earlier in the year, Janai hunted out a small rainwear supplier, whose tiny store was in amongst the plethora of fabric stalls in a busy marketplace. These colourful disposable rain macs and bags became key in this plastic fantastic story, inspired by all things… plastic.

 

Plastic in all forms was used in unique ways. From PVC and vinyl clothing, to plastic sets, glad wrapped props and bubble wrapped furniture. Mattresses were sourced for some interesting textured backgrounds, wrapped, of course in sheets of plastic and bubble wrap.

 

Underwear in provoking tones such as flesh and nude were combined with candy colours, to create a pastel coloured BDSM undertone. Wigs by Daren Borthwick, were used to create prissy, wild and housewife inspired characters.

 

The juxtaposition between Hong-Kongese disposable raincoats and designer brands gives quirk to this story.
