When white clouds run against the plush spring sky, there is nothing more spectacular than landscapes in full bloom at the beginning of May. The pale pink buds of the blossom trees have such an enchanting, yet frail appearance that an afternoon walking through the Japanese cherry blossom park in the forest of Amsterdam feels like floating through a sea of cotton candy, if that could make any sense at all. Forming a strong contrast to this saccharine dream world, are two black silhouettes rising up from the pale pink environs. Submerged into a palette of deep inky black and laced with romance, the gothic bohemian style is as much bewitching as it balances on the border of feeble and strong. His ensemble features a draped pullover which cascades down the bust, matched with ripped dark jeans and flexible sock-shoes. Flanked by her ensemble, which consists of a full length black lace dress, accessorized by silver boho jewellery and some cherry blossom flowers. In Japanese culture, cherry blossom represents the fragility and beauty of life. On that note, mark the words of Pablo Neruda: “I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees”.
