This Danish photographer has some great work and his style is described as "simple Nordic with inspiration coming from the light in Dutch masters, storytelling and effects from motion pictures and the style, character and layers of New York." The rich, interesting photographs each tell a story in such clear terms... but with an air of mystery created in various ways, from the position of random objects, to the tilt of a face away from the camera.... the way it seems as if he stepped into a scene, interrupted the goings on and took the picture that instant.
This photo is what drew me to his site in the first place, done for Bloomingdales USA and so fairytale-esq
I'm not sure if he does all the styling but it truly is awesome...

Yet another lovely American store for women, designed by Debbie Sutton. Simple, flattering cuts and colours make this range look pricier than it is and the women who wear it; classy with a dash of funk. Her photography is great and I especially like the pic below:

They were established in 2001 and are based in Tordera (Barcelona). Feminine, stylish and pretty with a dash of nostalgia. Each section is divided with a quote adding a story-like quality to it all. e.g: That afternoon, silence reined under the majestic chestnut tree. A gentle summer afternoon breeze gradually entered, rustling the tree's jagged leaves.
According to Wikipedia, Hamilton was born in 1933 and was an evacuee from London to Dorset during World War 2. This is said to have influenced his work as well as his current country of residence: France. He worked as a designer for Elle and Queen Magazine as well as Art Director for Printemps in Paris. His photographs became popular in the 1960s and the hazy, feminine style came back into fashion in various magazines, such as Vogue, in 2003. He produced numerous books of his work during this time. His photos have a soft, eerie feel to them and this ethereal style is still attempted by many photographers today. These particular photos are from his book Demoiselles published in 1972.
