The forbidden. The visceral. The delirium. Velvet - red in particular - may evoke lavishness and exuberance, but it is also a symbol of a lustful and hedonistic underworld that is as secretive as it is seductive. Appetizing and addictive, the warmer side of red in general, and of velvet in particular, imprints itself in mental images of desire, belonging, warmth - of warmths -, love and lust. It is in this duality of saint and sinner that the texture and the color are deemed stars in an editorial that seems forbidden, but is actually mandatory. Creative direction and styling by Alexandre Dornellas. Photography by João Viegas.
