Thomas Devaux


Obscure and elegant, the work of photographer Thomas Devaux exists in the duality of spirit to which most personalities are confronted. It is in fact another who is depicted – surprised as the individual plunges deeper into the most profound reaches of his or her “internal state”. His work leaves one questioning the ephemeral character and even the very notion of evanescent beauty.  
Replete in classical references and reinvented mythological personalities, Thomas Devaux amuses himself by playing with different photography styles before finally covering his tracks, leaving behind a finished work that is beautiful yet technically mysterious to the naked eye. With photographic samples taken from the world of fashion, he separates the personalities and materials from their environment in order to duplicate them, decompose them in order to reconstruct. He pushes of the boundaries of photography so that the final artistic work nearly replicates the look and spirit of lithography.

Thomas devaux's images have a very haunted feel about them. Strikingly modern, yet classically beautiful, Thomas Devaux's images have a very haunted quality to them.
Using imagery from classicial styles, mythological characters and religious icons, he combines them with a contemporary fashion styling. 
I think everyone will agree this his work is simply beautiful.

Christmas Orders

I will be away for 2 weeks at the beginning of December, so if you are planning on buying anything for Christmas, please order now to make sure you have it in time!

Alexander McQueen & Shaun Leane

If ever a perfect collaboration between two designers, this would certainly top the list!
Alexander McQueen & Shaun Leane are two of my favourite designers for many reasons, their craftmanship and eye for detail is amazing.

McQueen has been quoted saying that "Shaun has been a close friend and companion for many years. He captures the feeling of my work and the aesthetic of the time we are in... full of structure and finesse, crafted to perfection."

Jewellery by Bermudes

18kt white gold necklace with white diamonds brilliant cut, white diamonds pear but and natural feathers.
I just found this stunning neck-piece by a designer who goes by the name of Bermudes - unfortunately I can't find anything else by them. I think I have a bit of feather-lust...
