Liam Dunn Creates Effortless Elegance
Accessories are meant to fit into a life. They are the gilding on a whole look, a whole personality, and it was up to Liam Dunn to help fit the shoes and bags of Russell & Bromley into a larger picture of a woman who doesn’t just deserve them, but commands them. Liam has been collaborating with Russell & Bromley for years now, and their latest work together has resulted in a shoot that has bright updates for spring.
Effortless elegance is the focus this spring, using expanses of negative space and a super light touch. What we see are variations on the soft and natural. In each progressive image, the model is the same but the look is slightly different, but always supremely pure. Each is fresh and casually sophisticated, placing the footwear and bags into a context that is immediately obvious and tranquil. To help contextualize these images, Liam’s hair and makeup creations are organic.
On the face, his light touch brings out the model’s natural soft beauty, without adding anything dramatic to distract from her assets. The hair is loose, pulled back away from her face, or allowed to flow freely, both in ways that are uncomplicated but refined. “Fashion is about the individual style of the person,” Liam says. These images help us achieve an understanding of this woman, even if she’s a character.
