Julia Restoin-Roitfeld For Eddie Borgo
By Montse Ocejo
When I hear the word "elegant," all of these beautiful images of ethereal women come to mind, Anouck Aimée, Romy Schneider, Françoise Hardy, with their magical eyes and mysterious airs, and, of course, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld — she is today's iconic image of French magic.
For his Fall/Winter campaign, Eddie Borgo selected Julia Restoin-Roitfeld; as the essence of his work as a jewelry designer is punk, strong and luxurious, and his Winter collection 2013 is really magical with dark tones, Julia perfectly fits this look. The results of this campaign are beyond elegant. With her hair in a chignon and a leather skirt, Julia looks stunning as she models the pieces of the collection.
Eddie Borgo's collection has beautiful scarab onyx necklaces, silver bracelets with jade, and outstanding pieces like the horn pendant and the moon neckpiece, each piece is unique and magical, especially the mask. Julia looks like a black swan wearing this piece.
The look is completed with really heavy smoky eyes and nude lips. Julia's green eyes and dark hair make a perfect match with the green undertones of the photos. The photos are by Paul Maffi, styled by Keegan Singh, hair by Akki, makeup by Kristin Gallegos, and art direction by Prim Chuensumran.
