Water, it is the giver of life, used as the universal symbol of change, good health, purity and cleansing. And perhaps these are the visuals that Numéro Homme wanted to conjure up by giving their SS15 issue the theme of water. Enlisting Karl Lagerfeld to leave his watermark all over Olympic medalist Florent Manaudou, the French publication explores the theme editorially and in an accompanying interview for its new issue.
Pulling a variety of poses the muscle god is photographed in a selection of looks including a dripping wet tuxedo and is even captured laying naked in a giant clam shell, proving that there was simply no one better to baptise the athlete and welcome him into the fashion world then the master of ceremonies himself, Monsieur Lagerfeld. But somehow I don’t think this dripping wet Frenchman will have you conjuring up thoughts of purity.
