In the March Issue of Dazed & Confused, our newly appointed Fashion Director, Robbie Spencer, and New York-based fashion photographer, Jeff Bark shot a stunning shoot featuring the ethereal model Nastya Kusakina for the Collections Special. Inspired by cherry-blossom season in Kyoto, Japan, the upstate NY shoot coincided beautifully with a snow shower. Dazed Digital's new fashion director Robbie Spencer explains why Nastya was the perfect girl for his collections-issue shoot" "We wanted a model with pale porcelain features to contrast the dark forest, Nastya with her white blonde hair and ghostly comlexion was perfect." After the snow cleared, Jeff Bark watercoloured the actual prints by hand, lending "a dream like quality to the story". See the full shoot taken from the magazine here alongside a stunning film, 'Nastya In Bloom', shot on set.
