The Elle Russia June 2014 editorial featuring model Denisa Dvorakova offers an enthralling merger between chic swimwear and haute athletic looks. Photographer Xavi Gordo took in the atypical beauty of on-court looks, making Dvorakova come across as fully ready for any high stakes match.
Stylist Anna Artamonova managed to assemble this cross sectional offering of both sporty apparel and visually appealing beachwear. Bright blue bathing suit bottoms were displayed alongside dark running shoes, light visors and versatile pieces featuring zippers. Together these ensembles are functional as they cater to a variety of settings and activities.
Props also brought this Elle Russia production to life, driving home the athletic slant of the photoshoot. By incorporating a bicycle, Gordo made no mistake of the Olympian motifs at play.
