Embracing the dance theme that has become prevalent in the fashion industry over the last few months, the Marie Claire Italia September 2012 editorial is incredibly expressive. In the contemporary vein, the moves are at once fluid and abstract, which beautifully complements the duality of the fashion showcased.
The Marie Claire Italia September 2012 editorial was shot by photographer Thomas Krappitz. Inspired by director Wim Wenders’ tribute to Pina Bausch, it stars a troop of dancers from the Ballet National de Marseille as well as male model Willie Cartier. They were each outfitted by stylist Monika Kropfitsch, who chose minimalist pieces with flowing silhouettes that accentuate the movements made in each image. The graceful poses were given structure by the architectural surroundings of an urban rooftop.
