We asked 13 women, from different cultures that honour and celebrate The Year Of The Dragon, to be photographed for a modern, bold and feminine take on the traditional erotic calendar.
Each woman was chosen for her spirit to represent a facet of womanhood and a shared quality of the Dragon. Playful, wild, sacred, iridescent and unstoppable. This calendar is a celebration of culture, beauty and the divine power of female sexuality. A series of images for women, by women, to be enjoyed by everyone.
A special Lunisolar calendar, created to be adaptable to the user, and relevant to all territories. Thoughtfully designed by Jonny Lu Studio: recognisable tropes are balanced in the calendar’s ultimately new-fangled execution. Loose pages can be organised and reinterpreted by the user as they wish. Months can be installed into the card frame and hung on the wall, posters can be pulled out and enjoyed as singular images or the calendar can be digested as a book.
Just like the dragon, the calendar is boundless, old and new, quick witted and changeable.
