FACE À FACE – New York Ebony|Ivory
Creating a stunning photo shoot around an eyewear brand with an unmistakable and highly recognizable design language comes natural. After all, the quality products can do much of the talking. But taking things to the next level, photographer Ava Pivot decided to make a strong play on familiar backdrops and polarizing contrasts. This created the formula for taking the models of the new FACE À FACE collection on a visual journey in the Big Apple.
The French luxury label enjoys a reputation for artful designs, often featuring feminine lines, and frames with intense colorways. Which makes it even more interesting that Ava Pivot opted for black-and-white as the medium for her shoot, placing all emphasis on the frame contours. This effect is also complemented by the choice of models and liberal approach to clothing. And in order to take the French frames a bit out of their natural habitat, we staged the shoot in New York City. The result is an intense blend of ebony and ivory, with added spice from some of the hottest frames of the season.
