With the 2012 London Summer Olympics on the horizon, everyone has Olympic fever, which the Interview 'Olympiad' editorial feeds. Captured on the long climb to the diving board, this particular editorial focuses on swimwear. Stoic, dramatic and stunningly sculptural, the Interview Olympiad editorial is nevertheless inspired by gymnastics and the sport's "simple, graphic lines, and elasticized bands that stretch against taut, toned, rock-hard physiques," as written by the magazine.
Heralding "a summer of heroic athleticism," the Interview Olympiad editorial was shot by Stockholm-based photographer Mikael Jansson. It stars models Constance Jablonski, Suvi Koponen alongside male models Matt Terry, Myles Crosby and Nicklas Kingo. Styled by Karl Templer, the swimsuits follow a strict black and white palette as well as a contemporary theme.
