Haute Couture + Water = ♥LOVE♥

Aren't these stunning images? Haute couture + underwater, just the juxtaposition of that is enough to interest Glamoursplash. These images were shot by Parisian born photographer Alix Malka in 2008 for Japanese fashion magazine Numero Tokyo. The model is Marcelina Sowa and the spread is called Sub Aquatic Beauty.

The dresses are by Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli and they're mostly made of silk.
Alix graduated in 1985 and started working at the house of Thierry Mugler. After seven years he went into a short career in advertising before finally moving into photography. More of Alix Malka's work and background can be seen here. Just amazing, the color work is indeed phenomenal.
Stay tuned, tomorrow we're looking at another special underwater photographer. Let us know if you have a favorite.
