The Harpers Bazaar 'Black Code' editorial revolves around the dark theme of Hasidic Judaism. The religious beliefs held by this Jewish sect might not be dark, but the photoshoot certainly is. Shot entirely in black and white, it couples all-black ensembles (hence its title) with somber expressions. Fashionising chalks it up to a case of forbidden love. Whether that is the underlying tension of the photoshoot or not, there is an emotion level to be explored.
Captured by photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina, the Harpers Bazaar 'Black Code' editorial stars model Isabel Guyt alongside male model Niko Ohlsson. The two were outfitted by stylist Lisa Schuil. While Ohlsson was mainly clad in a long black coat and white button-up shirt, Guyt's wardrobe was a little more fleshed out.
