Marina Rinaldi pays tribute to the truly authentic charm of Marilyn Monroe, reinterpreted by Ashley Graham for the FW 19_20 campaign.
This is the American influencer and activist's sixth experience as the face of the brand, this time captured by the Israeli-born photographer Erez Sabag.
The photo shoot took place on a deserted volcanic beach facing the Pacific Ocean and was staged to recall a sequence of shots that have become famous because of their extraordinary protagonist, Marilyn Monroe. It was July 1962 when the actress posed on the beach of Santa Monica for the lens of George Barris, in what would be the last photo shoot before her death in August. The star's authentic sensuality emerges from the images, an intimate and unobtrusive tale that Marina Rinaldi sought to recreate through Ashley's engaging spontaneity.
The soft light of dawn or dusk illuminates the coats and knitwear, elegantly mixed with lingerie accents. The colour palette explores the refinement of natural tones interspersed with the rigour of black and the energy of yellow.
#rockyourconfindence is the hashtag of reference, an invitation to all women to feel free to express themselves for what they are, to have more and more confidence in themselves.
