Desert Rose and a Peacock Chair

There's a few reasons why i'm writing this article today. The first is that it features a trend i've written about before and the second is that the photo shoot takes place in the desert. As i'm currently in Saudi Arabia, it all seems quite fitting and appropriate.

In May i wrote about my obsession for vintage peacock cane chairs, and it just so happens that photographer extraordinaire Jose Villa, jumped on the peacock chair trend and shot this stunning fashion feature for Rue magazine. With the delicate lace, the rich spice colours and the exotic majestic setting, all that is missing is the sound of Sting singing 'Desert Rose'... This desert rose, each of her veils, a secret promise. This desert flower, no sweet perfume ever tortured me like this...

Oh my goodness... these last two black and white shots are out-of-control amazing !! How superb would it be the host an engagement dinner styled like this shoot? Phenomenal !!!

Photography by the ridiculously talented Jose Villa
