- SPRING MOURNING-

PUBLISHED IN i-D MAGAZINE. PHOTOGRAPHY BY WILLY VANDERPERRE. STYLED BY THEFRENCHY. MODELS: STELLA TENNANT (widow), HUGO VILLARD (husband) + extras.

INSPIRATION: Going against the whole "everything is so nice in spring" and showcasing the journey of a wife who lost her husband during that season. Couture editorial displaying the Haute Couture collections for Spring 2012.


COVER: Stella is wearing this exact same Givenchy HC SS12 look, it's portrait shot. In the background, cherry trees. A man's hand is covering her left eye. You can tell he's wearing a black jacket.

  • PAGES 1&2: HOW SHE FOUND HIM. Double page, shot in b&w.
SET: The couple lives in a hôtel particulier somewhere in France. Very old-fashioned decorating. She opens the door, flabbergasted and sees him sitting at his desk naked, head back, dead. She's wearing Bouchra Jarrar HC SS12.



---------------------------------------

  • PAGES 3&4: TELLING THE FAMILY. Double page, shot in b&w.
SET: In her bedroom. Think Marie-Antoinette's at Le Petit Trianon, with a much bigger bed. The bed isn't done. She's sitting at her dressing table, holding the phone, crying. A lot of her jewelry is displayed all over the table. Some of it has fell on the floor. She's wearing Giambattista Valli HC SS12 (sans headpiece or necklace).



---------------------------------------
  • PAGES 5&6: THE FUNERALS. Double page, shot in colors.
SET: In the property's park, surrounded by cherry trees. There is wind. The part of the ground where the ceremony is held is covered by a dark wood floor. The widow is standing in front of the coffin, looking straight into the camera. In the background, guests are young men wearing identical black suits, head down, standing around the coffin. She is wearing a complete Givenchy HC SS12 look.




---------------------------------------

  • PAGES 7&8: MOVING ON. Page 7 is empty and white. Page 8 is shot in b&w.
SET: The Love Temple at Le Petit Trianon. She's holding one of the pillars, looking forward. Worried. She's holding her coat with her left hand. Some of it is on the cold marble floor. She's wearing Valentino HC SS12.
