Lanvin – Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin
The photo spread was shot by married couple, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who this time around also appear in front of the camera. The campaign is a love story between these two artist who have merged their talents and their lives to create something visually spectacular.
Inez who appears nude in these shots acts a focus, drawing the eye into a frame that captures the fluidity and structure of the clothes worn by her lover, Matadin. I find the images beautiful, the red body paint which covers Inez’s skin took two hours to apply and somehow transforms her into some sort of modern day succubus. A transformation and image worthy of note, in my opinion.
