The new Vogue Paris Isabeli Fontana editorial titled ‘New Strength’ displays both bold swimsuit fashion and striking photography skills.
Shot by Gilles Bensimon, the photos are vibrantly over-saturated giving them a heated summery quality that suits model Fontana’s fiery glare. A couple of the photos depict Fontana staring forcefully out to sea with her elaborately printed head wrap blowing in the breeze. This flowing style contrasts Fontana’s energized poses; instead of pairing whimsical fashion with a whimsical model, Vogue Paris chose to juxtapose a carefree style with a troubled-looking subject.
‘New Strength’ features several bold bathing suits that defy the traditional two-piece bikini, returning to the more modest one-piece suit. With this decision it could be that Vogue Paris is indicating a shift back to a more retro style of swimwear.
This Vogue Paris Isabeli Fontana editorial is effortless in its blending of strong photography, a striking model and perfectly avant-garde stylings.
