It might not be the first time that photographer Kelly Defina and model Laura Andric have joined forces to bring us a taste of summer sexiness, but with every new photo shoot, Kelly’s vision becomes clearer, just as the results of her work become more and more influential. Inspired by the sporty luxe aesthetic, the shoot reflects the idea of movement, effortlessly building the bridge towards the concept of an active lifestyle.
Blending functionality with style, the choice of activewear as it appears modelled by Laura, mirrors the latest sports trends in swimwear. Pointing towards a heavy scuba gear influence, the sleek suits match the color-block tone set by the late ’80s and ’90s, reimagined through a more modern and appealing aesthetic by designers like Lisa Marie Fernandez and Stephen “Kristo” Christopherson of A.T.G Women.
Polished silhouettes complemented by chunky zips nod towards the flawless styles sported by the iconic Bond girls. Beauty wise, Shev Kelly for Napoleon Perdis (www.napoleonperdis.com) envisioned a nude look with brown smokey eyes accents and a complementary wet look hair style.
