COVER: MONIKA SAWICKA BY SERGE LEBLON, MIXT(E) N.3, FALL/WINTER 2012
Posted on September 4, 2012
I never realised was a fascinating face model Monika Sawicka has until I came across this cover by Serge LeBlon.
Clearly a result of the styling by Joanna Schelnzka, this beautiful shot sees a gothic doll-like, Monika amidst a fast paced metropolis gazing towards the large Mixt(e) masthead. The movement and de-saturated colours captured by Serge LeBlon’s lens are beautiful and fit with the theme of the issue “Time Travel: Voyage Au Bout Del La Mode” perfectly.
There’s something wonderfully nostalgic and familiar about the cover, particulary due to the lamp post in the background which for some strange reason, I find extremely fascinating.
