Dark and dewy, the ELLE Netherlands July 2012 editorial focuses on an aquatic theme that diverges from the happy, vibrant beach shoots that have been inundating the fashion industry for the summer season. Instead, it focuses on the mysterious depths of the ocean. All dark blues, emerald greens and black blacks, the watery backdrop allows the relatively bright fashion to stand out.
The ELLE Netherlands July 2012 editorial was lensed by Arnhem-based photographer Meinke Klein. It stars model Marte Mei van Haaster. The Dutch beauty was styled by Thomas Vermeer. Clad in pieces from the likes of Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Peter Pilotto and more, she is transformed into a seaworthy siren, especially with her wet hair and slick skin.
