é SALON is flexing its creative muscles in a variety of mediums, delivering LVM, a dark and stirring photographic collection, accompanied by an evocative video, both inspired by the human psyche. The vivid imagery and video come courtesy of industry heavyweights Emiliano Vitale, Robert Lobetta and Lisa Muscat.

The pictorial collection creates whimsy and mystique through smoke, light and shade, showcasing rich hair colours of blue, purple, black, grey and blonde. Graphic short cuts and inventive long hair shapes are adorned by opulent jewels and intricate facial drawings in Avant Garde beauty looks.

The video contrasts these vibrant images with a black and white aesthetic, utilising this powerful, timeless canvas to convey the power of the subconscious. The video utilises smoke, water and the manipulation of time to create this dream-like state, suggesting taboo topics such as smoking and alcohol to express the theme of our unconscious desires.
