Carine Roitfeld’s eponymous publication, CR Fashion Book, gets ready for its eighth issue with a preview of its first-ever model portfolio. Appropriately titled Girls 2016, the shoot features 20 models that span the spectrum, from the world’s top models like Irina Shayk and Nina Agdal to Instagram regulars like Gigi Hadid and Amina Blue.
The clothing featured in the shoot comes courtesy of Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 2, while the heels are provided by Gianvito Rossi. Regarding the shoot, Roitfeld related the following:
I am very loyal to models I like, from Julia my daughter and love forever, to my new girl Amina Blue. I decided to make this shoot very sexy, like the one I did with Steven Meisel for Pirelli—using oversized clothes and sportswear mixed with high heels by Gianvito Rossi, and reflecting the military mood of Kanye’s show. His show inspired me with the form of the girls too. They all looked tough, but sexy.
The 48-page special edition Girls 2016 will be available alongside CR Fashion Book Issue 8 – the biggest yet at three volumes and 500+ pages – beginning February 26.
