An Underwater Editorial











“Hold Your Breath and Open Your Eyes”, for the March issue, Vogue Italia features designer looks from eyewear producer Marchon, but in an unusual element…underwater! Photographer Douglas Friedman captured eyewear styles and spring ready-to-wear collections from designers such as Jill Sander, Emilio Pucci, and Chloé with models submerged in a water-filled tank! Michael Philouze styled models Lucy, Taylor Foster, Simon Sherry Wood, and Taylor Bagley in one of the most interesting and artistic high-fashion editorials I have seen in a long time. Seeing how hard models work to strike a perfect pose without being dunked in a tank, I cannot imagine how difficult it was for these models to pose so perfectly while underwater! This editorial is extremely innovative and cool with its sleek Haute-couture-mermaid motif, and I can only imagine the difficulty in capturing (and posing for) such beautiful shots!
