January slips through acclaimed fashion photographer Bruno Dayan’s looking glass to discover a bizarre and mercurial world beyond, frosted with crystalline light. A quicksilver beauty emerges from mysterious shadows to paint a perfect winter portrait, cool, capricious, sublime. In a sinuous sheath of pearl- and crystal-encrusted embroidery, sparkling traceries encircling her wrist, she looks into both the future and the past. She sees her natural, free-spirited style contrasted with an oh-so-exquisitely sculpted metallic sheen. This is ancient art meets future fantasy—reflections of this season’s new Nordic goddess.
