I’ll forgive you if you think this is a post about the 2010 Pirelli calendar. It does, after all, consist of pictures of the likes of Miranda Kerr and Terry Richardson, all set amongst beach scenes. The images sport a raw quality, as if shot by Richardson’s lens. And yet amongst those photographed you’ll also find Bar Refaeli and Raquel Zimmermann, neither of whom graced this year’s Pirelli calendar.
Pirelli it is not. Rather, it’s a look at the personal photos of a small portion of fashion’s elite taken on various beach trips around the world courtesy of the upcoming issue of V magazine.
Their Spring 2010 tie in issue, V magazine have named their 65th issue “The Summer Scorcher issue.” You can take in the preview pictures from the issue by clicking on the thumbnails below, and will be able to pick up the full issue on US newsstands from 11 May.
