The Elle Ukraine September 2012 editorial centers around a cinematic love story. Although each still is filled with passion, there is a subdued, almost somber quality laced throughout, which adds an emotional dimension that will further reel audiences in. People will wonder about the stylish couple's story, creating more meaning for the fashion as well.
Shot by London-based Russian photographer Nikolay Biryukov, the Elle Ukraine September 2012 editorial is dark and dramatic. Captured against the cobblestoned streets of a European city, models Sam Rollinson and Ondrey are clad in a sophisticated 60s-inspired wardrobe. Stylist Natalia Osadchaya pulled pieces from the racks of such labels as Bottega Veneta, Prada, Etro, DSquared2, Christian Dior, Valentino and Salvatore Ferragamo. Makeup artist Seiko Nishigori and hairstylist Alfonso Diletto perfected the looks for the tenderhearted couple.
