Print is not Dead - Marine Deleeuw

French top model Marine Deleeuw helps launch the debut issue of Leith Clark's book-a-zine "Violet" appearing in an editorial lensed by photographic duo Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello. Deleeuw sports a striking blunt fringe for the story "Epitaph for a Darling Lady" while donning coats, boots, and dresses ideal for a countryside stroll. Stylist Samuel Francois ensures Deleeuw looks every bit the lady decked out looks by Miu Miu, Christian Dior, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Sonia Rykiel, and Bottega Veneta. Deleeuw's cinematic beauty and brooding chestnut brown eyes imbue the images with a pensive and reflective quality in keeping with the surrounding stark, barren landscape. The Elite Model Management Paris-repped newcomer continues to diversify her image with editorial appearances for a mix of mainstream high fashion and indie publications including W, Another Magazine, Interview Germany, Vandals, Document, V, and Vogue Japan. Deleeuw's latest incarnation for the Violet Book showcases the nineteen year old's classic French beauty to stunning effect. Clark, who also is the founder of Lula Magazine and the style director for British Harper's Bazaar, says optimistically of the new bi-annually produced publication "Print is not dead for me, no way. Magazines just need to be special and book-like - and Violet is book-like. I would never read a book on a screen."
