Foregoing traditional saharan dress codes that blend into sandy backdrops and typical billowing dresses that vibrantly contrast with stark desert settings, the Nadja Bender L’Officiel Paris editorial offers a fashion take that is entirely refreshing. In place of a muted neutral palette is a bright and bold one. Instead of glamorous gowns, the outfits boast clean lines, fitted forms and subtle sci-fi aesthetic.
Appearing in the magazine's April 2012 issue, the Nadja Bender L’Officiel Paris editorial was shot by New York-, Miami- and Paris-based photographer Alexander Neumann. The editorial was shot on location at the Paracas Desert in Peru. Stylist Vanessa Bellugeon paired the fashion-forward outfits with an array of headscarves to better protect Bender from the harsh heat of the sun. Makeup artist Sergio Corvacho completed the looks with a natural face.
