Words from marieclaire.co.uk:
Cara Delevingne can add another high profile shoot to her already bumper CV, as she teams up with Karl Lagerfeld for a magazine spread to mark his collaboration with shoe brand Melissa.
The model-of-the-moment turns sexy dominatrix in the fetish-inspired images, which were shot by the Chanel designer himself, to promote the range in the Brazilian label’s own magazine, Plastic Dreams.
Looking sexy in a black PVC dress with lace-up sides, fishnet tights and long gloves in one image, Cara poses alongside a white harp with one of the ice cream cone shoes from the collection perched on top. In another, the British catwalk star wears a long-sleeved knitted dress accessorised with the line’s ‘Ginga’ shoes and a superhero-inspired mask whilst sitting on a metal bar.
Lagerfeld said of the collaboration: ‘I had never worked with plastic in this way before. It’s not the classic technique, I am used to working with more traditional techniques for Fendi, Chanel and Lagerfeld shoes. My inspiration was the native country of the brand, celebrating the Brazilian joie de vivre.’
The designer has signed up for a four-season deal with the shoe brand, which also counts Vivienne Westwood and Jason Wu amongst its star collaborators.
