Tough Love

Credit: Hedi Slimane Fashion Diary

Sasha Pivovarova by Hedi Slimane for Vogue Nippon August 2011

I cannot get over how incredibly young Sasha looks in this.  And yet she exudes strength.  “Tough Love” indeed.  She wields strength and vulnerability in equal measure in this editorial.  The contradiction is all the more striking with Hedi’s black and white photography.  Moreover, the pieces play a large part in this with texture and depth ringing out with each shot.  I love how everything comes together to create an intriguing editorial out of a seemingly simple black and white showcase.  Hedi does a superb job in bringing out the details; the more I look at this, the more I find things to love.  Hedi’s photography and Sasha’s charisma combine for a fabulously textured shoot.
