Even though it’s winter, the editorial shoots at this time of year have summer on the brain, and we, frankly, can’t wait for the warm weather to start rolling in. Daria Werbowy leads this photo shoot for L’Équipe Sport et Style‘s December 2013 issue that is all kinds of nautical.
Shot by Mathieu Cesar, Werbowy wears simple one-piece and two-piece swimsuits styled by Marie Hugo. It was an interesting decision to shoot this series in black and white, seeing as most summer campaigns are all about pops of bright colors, but the aesthetic choice gives this shoot a more vintage look of an almost old-school nautical scene that totally works for Werbowy, whose smoldering gazes shoot right through the monochromatic scheme.
Werbowy, who had a big year in 2013 after being named the new face of Mango, gets right into it, plunging into the water with a model boat, posing on a dock with a life preserver, sailing a little boat, and even feeding a turtle — we’re not totally sure where the latter came from there, but we’re liking it all the same. Of the swimwear campaigns that come out around this time of year, we’re thinking this one might be one of our favorites. Check out more from the shoot below.
