Carine Roitfeld: In Peru

In August 1993, Carine Roitfeld collaborated with photographer Mario Testino and supermodel Helena Christensen to create one of her most famous editorials for French Glamour, "Au Pérou, chez les Incas," (or in English, "In Peru, home of the Incas"). The shoot pays tribute to the style of Martin Chambi who was renowned for his photographs documenting the provincial society of Peru at the turn of the 20th century. Interestingly, both Testino and Christensen have roots in Peru: Mario was born in the capital city of Lima and Helena's mother is of Peruvian descent.

In another familial connection, Christensen wore a sweater that belonged to Carine's father for one of the shots. As La Roitfeld explains, "My life is mixed with my work, so there’s no weekend, it’s everything mixed — fashion and life. I have a picture of my dad where he is wearing a Peruvian sweater and then we have Helena Christensen wearing the same sweater in a fashion shoot for French Glamour in Peru. Everything is mixed. I think this is charming. It’s something personal."
