Fashion photographer Esther Haase presents ‘Show & Schuss’ in the MADAME FIGARO issue from 24 November, 2023 – featuring models Chane Husselmann, Chiara Bimbatti and Aliane Uwimana with a fusion of high fashion and sports style.
Stylist Barbara Baumel chose a selection of ski-style looks from prestigious brands such as Loro Piana, Fendi, Falconeri, Yves Salomon, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Maison Montagut, Intimissimi, Fusalp, Ferragamo, Max Mara Weekend, Prada, Dior, Marni, Canada Goose, Eric Bompard, Colmar, Miu Miu, Lanvin, Moncler, H&M, Herno, and Celine by Hedi Slimane.
Hairstyling was in the hands of Olivier Lebrun for the models, with makeup by Christina Lutz – adding a touch of elegance to the topic inspired by winter sports.
In late summer, the two transportation specialists from WE! SHOOT IT, aka Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon – represented by KELLY KELLERHOFF – took a trip to the Netherlands, where they realized campaign motifs for the new ŠKODA KODIAQ in Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
“This job was extremely exciting, particularly because the groundbreaking new SUV model from carmaker Škoda became a project in limbo between the old and new lead agencies. In other words : art buying and creation were still in the hands of Optimist Inc. in Prague, while production and shoot support came from the new agency, FCB in London,” the two photographers tell GoSee.
Classic backplates and domes were photographed in numerous locations in the Netherlands, and the car – still top secret at the time of the shoot – was realized with CGI in close cooperation with Aufeer Design Studio in Prague.
And, the creative duo is just back from their next job in Spain on commission for FCB London…
