A Spirited Editorial Honoring Women Through Modern Dance and a Refreshing Neutral Aesthetic
From Chloe, the photographer:
“This Kinfolk-themed editorial regarding our desire to create a minimalist aesthetic was built around women, as free, modern, daring brides. We wanted to honor them by the prism of the movement and elegance of a contemporary dancer. This inspirational bridal editorial focused on the current brides who take responsibility for their choices and personal influences and suggests breaking the dichotomy between a modern and mineral universe versus nature. We looked forward to finding the balance between graphic lines, curves, and poetry. The muted color palette and the predominance of white both emphasize the spirit and mood of this bridal editorial dealing with purity, liberty, and movement.
As an invitation to imagine a bridal outfit differently, going through the traditional wedding codes, and letting the brides soul talk, Eléonore Pauc, dress designer, imagined and designed a semicircular skirt made of muslin and fluid silk crepe, created from more than 20 meters of fabrics to make the brides free of their movements. The Joy skirt has become a unique piece from the new 2019 collection. With a loose and fluid open-back top with delicate and beautiful plant-inspired details designed by Eléonore, or with this elegant body which hugs the woman figure, we wanted to reveal how to be a daring bride, combining different pieces from different worlds like fashion or contemporary dance. The transparent veil also brought modernity and delicacy to outfit.”
