Boiling Point

With Summer beckoning, bathing suits editorials are popping up with alarming urgency for those of us who may not necessarily be in tip top swimsuit suit shape ;-). Clearly not the case for top models Fei Fei Sun and Julia Nobis, who get temperatures soaring in an editorial set in a boiler room for the New York Times Style Magazine supplement T. Photographer Craig McDean taps into the androgynous sex appeal of Fei Fei and Nobis, pairing leather jackets, gothic accessories, and masculine footwear with the season's gnarliest swimwear looks. The casting of catwalk queens Nobis and Fei Fei, may seem an odd match for a bathing suit story however both models add their own signature spin on the beachside babe ideal to fit perfectly within the editorial's "Too tough too handle" brief. Fei Fei's exotic otherworldly features and Nobis' street cred bring an added dimension of interest to this hyper-stylised editorial.
