In their first photoshoot collaboration, Mustafa Avci and Linh Phan show us their take on pairing interesting colors and bold silhouettes for the coming season—proving mixing warm with cool shades, and severe with soft shapes, are changing the game.
After looking at Phan's Instagram page during their consultation, model Shannon said "Do whatever you want!" Given that freedom, Phan managed to exercise control, melting from a medium gray at the base through to a pale peach at the ends. The artist used three different shades to accomplish this gentle blend. Avci created his signature waves, making sure to shape the wave sensitively to complement the new color.
