We’re so excited to welcome Bespoke Only to our wonderful Grey Collective family. Everything lead designer Melissa touches turns to gold (or rose gold or copper or silver) and shines. We love her affinity for interesting + elegant designs and we totally appreciate that she never veers too far into big trends. This keeps her beyond-gorgeous work as timeless as it is beautiful and this editorial in collaboration with Geraldine Magazine and Judy Pak Photography for Geraldine Magazine issue #3 is a perfect example.
The Concept: Layered in perplexing patina and mystique, an inimitable beauty emerged in a faded manor from the bygone era. Dusky roses in tints of mauve and mustard mixed with sumptuous pure white peonies form an intoxicating palette that carries a powerful visual impact. The decadent backdrop speaks of decayed opulence with its manifest signs of nostalgia – floor sweeping fraying velvet drapery, heirloom decorated rooms, delicate sheer lace gown adorned with hand-sewn rhinestone embellishment, and so on. A sense of unutterable poetic allure is everywhere.
