Sharif Hamza

Capture

For a fashion photographer and director who started his career only recently, 2010 to be exact, Sharif Hamza is a huge big “SHOT”

You can instantly know that an editorial has been photographed by him; the bright vibrant background with the amazing colors shout out to you “Check me out!”. Just think of  Lupita Nyong’o Dazed & Confused magazine and you would know exactly what I mean.

Hamza uses the light in a way that you can just reach out and lick Beyonce’s ice-cream or touch Lindsy Wixson’s radiant skin.

He photographed for many magazines including Dazed & Confused, W, V Man, AnOther, Interview, Love, GQ, and Vogue to name a few.He made campaigns for Dior Homme, Iceberg, Max Mara, H&M among others.

Besides Hamza is also a a filmmaker, his “In Motion” film by Armani with Liu Wen that was filmed exclusively for  AnOther magazine is breathtakingly intriguing.

Jewelry Trends Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Necklaces

One sentence sums it up “BIGGER is BETTER”. Designers are still going for huge, extravagantly oversized, bright, shiny, look at me fashion jewelry on the runway.

Headbands and tiaras are not to be found, my guess is that they are more of Springy/Summery kinda of accessories.

Heading down to the neckcandy and you have a variety of chokers, necklaces, and chains, and pendants.

Balenciaga went for a choker filled with Swarovski stones paired with a matching bracelet.

Chanel is still the “Pearl Brand” through and through with as many ropes as you can wear kind of jewelry with different pearl sizes.

Tribal necklaces appeared at Vivienne Westwood and Etro. They come in different sizes but the longer the better. Made of metal, leather, beads, tassels, plastic, and wood.

Floral necklaces are still a powerful element for the upcoming fashion scene whether shiny gems like Riccardo Tisci’s amazonian crystal collar at Givenchy or huge crystal colorful blooms at Dolce & Gabbana

Gold can never grow old. It came in  many shapes, sizes, and details sometimes with over-the-board number of chains or a huge padlock and numerous symbols at Chanel, Moschino, Balmain, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Celine, and finally Maiyet “Torq”
