It’s a simple concept, but it works. Taking two antithetical ideas and bringing them together in an unlikely romance like Danny and Sandy in the summer of ’59. It’s what Interview did with this shoot featuring Freja Beha Erichsen, only if we drop the Grease metaphor we find that the romance is between Freja’s toughed-up, leather-clad androgyny and some ruffly pink rose-petal pieces.
As well as working the contradiction angle, the shoot – titled Tough Ballerina – works for Craig McDean‘s striking photography of Freja. You can view the rest of the shoot by clicking on the thumbnails below.
