The True Romantics

In MOJEH’s February issue an inner penchant for hyperfemininity is unleashed thanks to soft silhouettes and sensual evening dresses. Photographed by Wendy Bevan, this is spring’s new look.

Stylist Kim Howells looks towards Elie Saab, Saint Laurent and Lanvin for dresses which offer both strength and freedom through flee-flowing fabrics and dark, potent hues. Unlike recent seasons, this is not bohemia. Instead, Kim Howells shifts towards tougher silhouettes which bid farewell to yesterday’s hippie movement and champions rigorous leather, crepe and touches of velvet. White’s remain crisp from Erika Cavallini’s over-sized, structured dress to Jamie Wei Huang’s seventies inspired two-piece while black remains unbroken in dominant styles such as Saint Laurent’s feathered dress which Kim Howells teams with calf-high black boots.

In beauty, makeup artist Yin Lee offers a fresh palette for spring with pared back solutions. Focus falls towards the lip in deep terracotta and berry bitten red; skin stays clean and flawless with touches of highlighter around the cheek bone and natural contouring; and eyebrows are well groomed without being over penciled.
