The Interview Russia June-July 2012 editorial embraces the theme of recycling. Inspired by the upcycled fashion showcased throughout the photoshoot, it is shot in a parking lot with a green dumpster in the background. Kenji Kawasumi and Jaeyeon Lee, a Central Saint Martins student design team working under the name 8=10, address the concept of sustainable fashion through the creation of their unusual garments. Crazy and colorful, the clothing spoofs iconic images such as Starbucks and Mickey Mouse in a couture way.
Lensed by photographer Nikolay Biryukov, the Interview Russia June-July 2012 editorial stars models Dasha Z and Liza S. Eclectically styled by Olga Kuryshchuk, they were also worked on by beauty artist Marina Keri who concentrated on multi-hued hair and barely-there makeup.
