‘Tender Is Life’ | Annemara Post By Karel Balas For MilK Magazine #36 | June 2012

“In the high season of weddings, MilK wanted to celebrate the magical moments of family gatherings; where you dream that time is suspended. Inspired by the delicate jewelry line, Piaget Rose, we composed a wardrobe embodying summer qualities such as light airiness, and gauzy silhouettes. The colors of the dresses are sweetly reminiscent of  precious stones in a whirlwind of soft nude and beige colors, faded and lit from within in golden light. Time stops to contemplate the sheer beauty; adorned by precious talismans.”

In Dreams


As if enveloped by cloud, these three sprights drift in and out of focus as they laze around in gauzy bits and pieces of romantic design. There could be no better photographer to capture the series than Wendy (who lends the ethereal to all she shoots!). Simply beautiful!
