Young and Talented.... The Byzantine Project

Term Byzantine is a synonym of decadence.  I saw these images in Vogue Italia and thought that from photography to styling, they are beautiful re-visitation and reinterpretation of that past and complex era.
My congratulations on job well done to new talents: photographer Marco D'Amico, stylist and designer Marco Grisolia, fashion editor Romina Toscano, and hair and makeup stylist Antonio Ciaramellai. They successfully combined Byzantine inspiration with our times, which resulted in modern and beautiful visuals.  I absolutely love their reference to iconography combined with modern color shades, combinations and layers. I hope you enjoy these as I did.
