Light as the Artist’s Muse

By STEPHANIE HYNES

Capturing the essence of an object by the use of lighting (or its absence) is a defining tool in the history of art. How the painter illuminates a canvas depends on the environment. Examples such as Rembrandt in the Netherlands, Caravaggio in Italy, Monet in France to name of few, clarified their visions through very specific perspectives on the use of light. Certainly, this holds true for photography and in fact, it is my opinion that light is a photographer’s muse. I believe that the seasonal shift in light is poetic: summer’s shimmer, autumns glow, winter’s transparency and springs ethereality.

That is why I asked Stephanie, whose play with light is her mantra, to shoot these images while she was in Paris recently. 105 degree temperatures might have impacted the statement we chose to make here. We could not have predicted the weather and the impact it might have upon these shots. But we are very grateful to the brands that supported our mission and the team that soldiered through the process to produce a gorgeous collage of summer intimates.

Stephanie is living in Paris this summer happily shooting art, lingerie and a lot of  wine.  Paris is her paramour. She can’t stay away ; inspired by almost everything she sees (check out her instagram).  She sent me these intimates images of Chantal Thomass (above) and Passionata (below)  professing that she can easily re-imagine them as swimwear pieces.  I decided to share them here as a ‘petite’ calling card for a much more extensive photographic editorial coming in August. It’s hot our there this week end so stay cool!

Writing this preamble about our latest Lingerie Fashion editorial photographed by Stephanie Hynes was somewhat of an eye opener for me. I’ve been discouraging the word plus when referring to curvy women who do not fit into the historically straight size market. My opinion has always been that size is just a number and all women deserve beautiful lingerie without being categorized.  But after a conversation with our model, Tricia Campbell, who I luckily met at a gathering we had both attended, I have a new perspective on the issue. Whereas I am getting tired of the same old marketing buzz words depicting the category, Trish is all about touting “body positivity” and proudly promotes herself as a plus sized woman.  As she explained to me: “Why not? I am plus size and I believe it’s the “New Normal”. She told me that she had a blast at this photo shoot because the products made her feel confidant and sexy. She was thrilled to have the opportunity to show that seductive and supportive lingerie was now easy to find for women like her. In this editorial, we hopefully captured her sense of joy.

Savoir Faire ~ French Lingerie

Photographed by STEPHANIE HYNES

This fashion editorial, shot by Stephanie Hynes during her recent sojourn in Paris is a testimonial to French lingerie.  Through her unique lens, she addresses the question: Why is French lingerie so revered? To us, the answer is intrinsic in the DNA of the French culture. Every facet of daily life is infused with the pursuit of pleasure; the French way of doing things caters to the senses. Some call it “savoir faire”. We call it the art of seduction. From the Baroque style of the Palace of Versailles to the translucent elegance of I.M. Pei’s Pyramid at the Louvre, the French design ideal is captured in Stephanie’s photo essay. Replete with light, gorgeous underpinnings and chic locations, these images reflect our interpretation of luxurious lingerie. They are also homage to women who understand that real beauty is best portrayed in how one feels inside. That is why, for centuries, French women have worn beautiful underwear simply to empower themselves.

We begin our journey in a classic french Pied à Terre . . . . .

In search of a theme for our holiday lingerie fashion editorial, Stephanie and I wanted to stay true to our creative aesthetic. How classic is the Nutcracker Suite! I suggested a story about the intimate world in which the dancers live while they are backstage in rehearsal and during the performance. Thirty two brands contributed to this visual panorama of exquisite intimates photographed to capture the symbiotic relationship between lingerie and the ballet. Our principal model, Laura Hess, is a former prima ballerina and has performed in The Nutcracker. She is joined by other professional dancers. The logistics of this shoot proved challenging as we lost our initial stage venue on the East Coast and were forced to move to Minneapolis for the final work. But in her inimitable way, Stephanie pulled it off. This is our gift to our readers and our brands for Holiday 2018. Let the season begin!
