We are thrilled to share this stunning editorial from Italian photographer Emanuele Cassina; as the newest addition to the Libertine’s Summer Session series. The shoot blends soft colors and textures with the natural soft sensuality of a woman’s nude form. Giuvi Palazzi, the mercurial beauty cast for the shoot, embodies the sacred purity and sensuality for which the female form has so long been revered and adulated. Absent of undertones of vulgarity, this story allows the reader to enthrall themselves (fully, if fleetingly) in the ‘invocation of the muse’. Enjoy!
Burgeoning photographer Mae Richards collaborated with fresh young face Romana Chuda, to create a casual yet edgy summer series. The energy of ‘Vim + Vigor’ is laid back, effortless and intimate; capturing the model in stolen moments of introspection, behind shifting afternoon shadows. Romana goes beauty bare and adjusts her own hair throughout the editorial; while she lazes in layered looks styled by the photographer herself. Enjoy!
Shot on location at the abandoned, but soon to be restored, 1926 YMCA building; editorial ‘L’été’ is a rustically romantic roman à clef, of models Jessica Sikosek and Mary Reschar, styled in gossamer looks by the designer Kim Hendrix. Conceptualize by progressive talent Fox Harvard, this fashion story blends the demure with the dilapidated, refined with rachitic; yielding an entrancing depiction of unabashed opulence, against a backdrop of rough austerity. The two young sirens vacillate effortlessly between gritty and glam in a series that will subtly stay with you. Enjoy!
