The Dark Side

Craig McDean explores the dark side of fashion with model Suvi Koponen for British Vogue's bumper September 2012 edition. The editorial showcases the allure of black leather featuring beautifully cut pieces from the Fall/Winter 2012 collections of Valentino, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang amongst others. Fashion editor Jane How contrasts Koponen's milky translucent skin tone with the backdrop of oak and black panelling which work in compliment with the finely constructed leather ensembles. Koponen has mastered the art of conveying sensuality without resorting to overtly sexual poses, the subtlety of her expression and the clean lines of her body hint at the racy undertones that are associated with leather attire.
