Share This.Revealing beauty even in censorship, Mehdi-Georges Lahlou‘s Créature pour Chaman is a stunning series that features a bejeweled woman in full hijab.

Share This.Calvin Ross Carl‘s Teen Sweater Tabletop is a brilliant display of contrast. The wily zigzag pattern clashes beautifully with an intimidating flood of sultry, no-nonsense red. Upon closer inspect, you can see that the black and white pattern was actually painted on top of a red canvas.
