Daphne Groeneveld & Andrej Pejic in Vogue Paris
Very powerful and captivating editorial titled “Rive Gauche et Libre”, shot by Mert & Marcus (Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott) for Vogue Paris September 2010 issue. Featuring models Malgosia Bela, Daphne Groeneveld, Andrej Pejic, Josh Parkinson, and Lea T. Styled by Carine Roitfeld. The title translated is “Left Bank and Free”, “left bank” refers to the region of Paris that is a mecca for young artists, and “free” to the freedom from the confignment of traditional sexual roles in society. The editorial celebrates androgyny, the blurring of the line between what is feminine and masculine. The stand out pages to me were the ones featuring Daphne and Andrej. The images of Andrej from this spread have become almost iconic, the image with the rose is as recognizable as his very controversial Dossier ad, that caused such a stir.
