After opening Dior’s runway show in September of last year, top model and artist Sasha Pivovarova appears in the French brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 campaign.
Sasha poses for Patrick Demarchelier’s camera in a photography studio, surrounded by her finished drawings or in the act of making them. These portraits of women with angular faces and large mesmerizing eyes are very personal to Sasha as they are a reflection of her and her emotions. The creative process is reminiscent of Niki de Saint Phalle’s, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s primary source of inspiration for this collection. The campaign’s aesthetics also evoke another inspiration: the 1960s, and with them a spirit that’s equal parts artistic, feminine and cheekily playful.
