Sing oh bard, of fashion and flair
Since May 2012 she ranks fifth among the models according to models.com. And it was also in May that Abbey Lee Kershew returned on the pages of magazine "Numéro", shot by Greg Kadel and with illustrations by Mel Kadel.
It took the breathtaking beauty of Australian model Abbey to join Greg Kadel’s eye, the pencil of Mel Kadel and the styling of Samuel François. The occasion is a fashion spread of b&w photo cutouts immersed in monochromatic backgrounds and illustrated decorations.
Greg Kadel’s shots, on which the "aquatic" and foamy illustrations of Mel Kadel seem to float, bring the photographer back to his first passion, that for marine biology.
And on the garments chosen by Samuel François another reaction takes place. Of colors and motifs. On the designer textiles of Salvatore Ferragamo, Stella McCartney, Giorgio Armani and Isabel Marant. Contrasts between simplicity and maximalism that capture the gaze.
