The Modern Weekly China 'Marrakech Midi' editorial is raw and exotic. Shot in a gritty style in a foreign land, the photo shoot has a sense of freedom that is often lacking in similar fashion editorials. Candid and carefree, model Elise Crombez strikes subtly provocative poses as she explores her rich setting.
Shot by New York-based photographer Lina Scheynius, the Modern Weekly China Marrakech Midi editorial counters sand-colored stone walls with lush foliage and colorful fabrics. The fashion itself draws on its surroundings. Although predominantly Western in style, the outfits have exotic touches such as embellished accessories and billowing shawls. The Belgium beauty was styled by Felipe Mendes in pieces from Haider Ackermann, Givenchy and Lanvin with hair by Romina Manenti and makeup by Hugo Villard.
