Photographer Nagi Sakai captures Marie Claire Italia's latest editorial exclusive, a series that is lensed in the heart of Marfa, Texas. The site of Elmgreen and Dragset's infamous Prada Marfa installation, this small town is known for its remote landscape and nostalgic motels, diners and truck stops.
Model Tess Hellfeuer fronts Marie Claire Italia's striking editorial and dons a designer wardrobe of Western-themed casuals. Whether sporting suede tops, embroidered sweatshirts or bohemian dresses, the model poses roadside while exploring the barren landscape that surrounds her.
Styling for this Marfa, Texas editorial is courtesy of Laura Seganti who collaborates with this editorial's talented beauty team to bring her effortlessly cool style vision to life. Opting for messy locks and bare-faced makeup, hair stylist Kenshin Asano and makeup artist Eric Polito create a natural and youthful look for this editorial's star Tess.
