According to Danish writer Isak Dinesen “the cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea”. Replacing the tears with an alluring styling, using the clear blue sea as the ideal backdrop and evoking the classical scenario of a torrid summer day, photographer Toby Marosszeky envisioned The Perfect Sweat. Blurring the line between athletic and utterly sophisticated, the photo shoot portrayed by Sydney fashion stylist Giarne Wedes and modeled by Courtney Simpson is a vision of pure glam.
Illustrating a subdued seduction and putting a strong emphasis on the wet hair look as to complement the sexy and effortless beach image women are keen in pursuing, the editorial is nothing but a transgression into the beautiful reality of a bold and vibrant season. The same daring qualities are being highlighted by the choice of accessories, a perfect combination of modern, edgy and highly energetic.
Transporting us to a different state of mind and turning the spotlight on the summer nonchalance, Toby Marosszeky (www.tobymphoto.com) with the help of assistant photographer Andrew Smith, succeeded in making us long for a lazy afternoon spent on the beach, provided that we look equally fabulous.
