Now that the 2014 Olympics has commenced in Sochi, Russia, Fashion Magazine has dedicated a portion of its February issue to an 'athletic-chic' editorial/commerical-esque photo spread that rounds up some of the best suitable athletic gear in a high-fashion fashion. The athletic-chic trend is always a hot number when entering the spring/summer seasons, so why not get inspired by your favourite olympians? In this creative photo spread, photographed by Chris Nicholls and styled by Zeina Esmail and assistant Eliza Grossman, models are seen posing and imitating the athlete's stance whether it be a skiing move, a running move, a hockey move, or a long jump move. Either way, the shoot is fun, lively and timely. The model's face is fresh and natural, while her hair is fiercely tied up in a high pony and ready for action thanks to hair and makeup artist, Nicolas Blanchet. Nails are also matched according to each outfit, courtesy of manicurist, Leeanne Colley. Of course this olympic, athletic-chic shoot wouldn't be possible without the likes of fashion brands: Lanvin, Hermès, Jason Wu, Acne, Marni, Fendi, Pink Tartan, Christian Louboutin, Alexander Wang, Thom Browne and more!
