Balenciaga's Beachcombers

Nicolas Ghesquiere enlists a cast of brand spanking new faces to front his Fall/Winter 2012 campaign. Photographed by Steven Meisel, the eclectic cast of newcomers includes Sweden's Linn Arvidsson, Australia's Hirschy Hirschfelder, Great Dane Julier Bugge, Britain's Rosie Tapner and Dutchies Juliet Ingleby and Anniek Kortleve. The models pose in retro futuristic pieces from Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2012 collection, on a sand trail leading into the unknown with dunes as a backdrop. Of the models featured, I am absolutely loving Anniek Kortleve whose unruly neon red tresses remind me of eighties model Kathryn Redding. Other standouts in the cast are the statuesque and compelling androgyny of Julier Bugge and the alien-esque otherworldly beauty of Linn Arvidsson.
