The final edit to the Emma Wallace four part series of ‘L.O.V.E’, inspired by the Greek philosophy of love, is ‘Eros’. Influenced by elements of passion and power, 'Eros' is an edit that effortlessly exudes the ecstasy of love through an elegant modern allure.
This is a love of desire and intensity which was often construed by the Greeks as a dangerous, fiery, and irrational form of love that could take hold of you and possess you. The love of Eros involves a loss of control that frightened the Greeks, which is ironic because losing control is precisely what many people now seek in life- Don’t we all hope to fall “madly” in love? Become so passionate about our endeavours that it consumes us?
Unleashing the power of love (thankyou, Celine Dione) is exactly what ‘Eros’ is set to achieve. Blending a modern elegance with timeless allure, this edit boasts fiery reds in the Nyx Gown, dramatic sleeves on the Thalia dress, understated cut outs on the Lyra Dress and plunging necklines in the Zephyra Tops.
Although often displayed in forms of intimacy and attraction to another person, passion is a feeling found in all elements of life. From being passionate about your work to finding a hobby that lights your fire, to standing strong and passionate about your personal beliefs. A love of passion can be found in religion, art, morals, creativity and more! Don’t be afraid to fall into the red spiral of intensity in any side of life that ignites a spark. “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” - Oprah Winfrey
The red love in ‘Eros’ represents passion and confidence, but also power. Some follow power their whole lives falling into highly successful roles in careers of CEO’s, in government or management; but this is power over others, not within yourself. Taking power into your own hands is another endeavour entirely. Self empowerment is a form of passionate love unlike other loves, bringing confidence to your own thoughts, feelings and actions. Finding people and passions that enable self empowerment is paramount in life! You’ll know it when you feel it.
Find passion and power like never before in this edit. Step into the red world of 'Eros' and unleash your fiery side, embrace your inner goddess and radiate confidence and beauty.
