We received a lot of love for Paul Empson and June Nakamoto's Parisien contributions last issue - in particular the shoot with Kim Noorda for which Nakamoto pulled and combined some classic pieces - notably the Westwood strapped boots and the Dior couture. The pair have collaborated once again for Issue 11 and the result is rather special. Empson cast Marloes Horst for the shoot as she had recently shot the Pirelli calendar with Terry Richardson and was very "comfortable with herself" whilst Nakamoto once again trawled the cities showrooms and press agencies looking for beautiful fashion.
We love the international flavour that our Paris team are bringing too - US-born Empson lives in Sydney but is spending more and more time in the city whilst Nakamoto, a regular contributor to the likes of I.D magazine, is of Japanese heritage but has been based in Europe for some time. The above image will feature in a 16 page spread shot once again in the splendiferous surrounds of Europe's romantic city.
