When Serge Gainsbourg penned the unusual phrase “Je t’aime… moi non plus” (translating roughly to “I love you… me neither”) he was referring to the distinction between physical pleasure and love. To Gainsbourg, there was no issue in acknowledging the former as something meaningful; but that often gets mistaken for the latter. It would make sense, then, that Sebastian Kim’s editorial of the same name would be at least a little erotically charged.
The styling is very much centered around luxury and opulence; the setting equally so. But it’s the anonymous naked bodies surrounding Kendra Spears that add the element of “me neither” to this situation of physical love.
From Numero’s April 2012 issue, you can view the full shoot of Kendra Spears at the gallery above.
