Inspired by the adventures of our bohemian wanderer, The Dreamweaver, we sent our friends Anja Konstantinova and Imogene Barron for a trip through the Yucca Valley to the Joshua Tree National Park.

A fresh-faced, bright-eyed beauty who’s graced the pages of Vogue, Oyster, Covet and Pages, Anja K is a Russian-born Aussie expat who recently relocated to London to continue her international modelling career. Long-time buddies with stylist, picture-taker and creative director Imogene Barron, the pair first collaborated in 2012 for Imogene’s self-published Love Want magazine for the aptly named editorial, An Awesome Afternoon with Anja. We brought the pair together again for our shoot at the Thunderbird Lodge Retreat – a character-filled cabin surrounded by acres of desert. Barron injected the editorial with her lo-fi, bleached out aesthetic and signature stripped-back styling, while Anja embodied the effortless essence of sass & bide throughout the shoot.

Accomplished makeup artist Natasha Severino was responsible for Anja’s perfectly undone look. Barely-there makeup with the exception of glimmering eyes – a Severino signature – offset the dry desert backdrop.
