SANS COUTURE for SHOWstudio/The Independent

A/W 14's finest haute couture is captured in unconventional fashion in a collaboration between Nick Knight, Chanel’s Amanda Harlech and The Independent’s Alexander Fury. The editorial, which appeared The Independent, is inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s preoccupation with ‘sans couture’ - literally without sewing - and focuses on veiling, wrapping and unwrapping the body. Mirroring the ‘sans couture’ concept, Elena Sudakova (a model famed for her flexibility and contortion abilities) and dancer Olivia Cowley push their bodies beyond ordinary limits to showcase the most unusual haute fashion from houses such as Giambattista Valli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Margiela, Dior, Armani and Versace.
