Despite an utterly classic styling display, Sebastian Cviq‘s editorial Her Name Is Belmondo hides a rebel attitude at heart, drawing inspiration from the new wave cinema of the 1960s. Mirroring the social transformations of the decade, the photo shoot starring Anna Kedzior highlights the profound changes to have taken place in gender relations. Upon channeling Jean-Paul Belmondo’s timeless appeal, the editorial does the kind of androgyny that collides femininity with masculinity ever so gracefully.
Following along the lines of the shoot’s gallant influence, Pawel Kedzierski and Maciej Dabros envisioned a classic crossover, reimagining the masculine styling by adding layers of softness to the mix-gender garment combinations. The shine reflected by a metallic texture, the nonchalance exuding from an unbuttoned white shirt, the sheerness of a blouse set against the rigor of a suit point to an almost imperceptible daintiness.
Dorota Kumosinska kept the masculine influence alive with a toned-down make-up and a series of sleek hair-styles. Round shades and exquisite hats brought the finishing touches to the otherwise flawless outfits.
