“For whatever we lose (a you or a me) It’s always ourselves we find in the sea" - E.E. Cummings
A barefoot actress adorned in an ethereal crystal embellished gowns greets the sun on a deserted beach.
Regardless of your style, the ocean is a common ground for most. Something innate pulls you there. For some it’s the promise of seclusion, others it’s the wildness of a seaside storm; or perhaps for you it’s the shimmering reflection of a sparkling sun on emerald waters.
Drawing on this romantic idea of the ocean and its pull, we wanted to share these shots featuring the stunning Samara Weaving, photographed by the incredible Kane Skennar, on location in Byron Bay, on Australia East Coast. The ethereal and embellished gowns an ode to the ocean, its ethereal glamour and its ability to resonate with all personal styles and aesthetics.
