Director Luca Guadagnino is known for beautiful films such as I Am Love and other Tilda Swinton collaborations (including this short film he co-wrote with her)--but not so much for fashion photography.
So, it's pretty special that he shot a full editorial for the second issue of CR Fashion Book. In fact, it's Guadagnino's second photo shoot ever. Called 'Obsessions,' the spread (which you can see some of above) features several models as well as Prima Ballerina Marie Agnes Gillot and violinist Charlie Siem, against gorgeous painted backdrops by artist Karen Kilimnik. Like his films, the shoot is highly stylized, a little intense, and, well, cinematic. We like.
You can watch the cute behind-the-scenes vid, featuring amazing spring fashion, OTT makeup, dancers in motion and a couple of Carine appearances, below. Head to CR Fashion Book for more.
