The “Landmark” editorial was inspired by the collection of Vrettos Vrettakos, a prominent Greek designer. This project was created by the photographer Nina Lass, in collaboration with the professional makeup artist Christos Theophanous and the fashion stylist Yolanda Teskou who provided all the unique pieces of the designer. The location of the photoshoot was at the port of Piraeus, 12km away from Athens, Greece. The idea of the team was to photograph the very shiny and impressive dresses, in a contradictory environment, not fancy and aristocratic at all, but industrial and somewhat dull. Our glamorous model, Elena, created a contradiction in front of the lighthouse and the ruins of the harbor next to the sea.
The light in the first shots was stronger, creating intense shades and a sunny scene as a background. One of the dresses is embroidered with Swarovski which were glowing with the sunlight. The lighthouse on the edge of the waterfront road worked perfectly with the black embroidered dress which was making a contrast with the very tall and white lighthouse with the red detail.
The next location was in an abandoned fertilizers factory. Likewise, the background with the old industrial buildings and the funnel, along with the other two dresses and the impressive evening makeup made by Christos, is something that surprises. The weather started becoming cloudy and the environment was looking more melancholic and dramatic. In all the shots Elena wears NAK shoes that matched perfectly with the creations of Vrettos Vrettakos.
