Anthony Vacarello's vision for Saint Laurent Rive Droite seems to be limitless with the launch of its new publication Rive Droite Editions Purienne. With Anthony Vacarello's Rive Droite slowly becoming a pinnacle destination for art, music, culture and lifestyle, Saint Laurent works with photographer Henrik Purienne in his expression of the Maison with an exclusive body of work, uniquely produced and published for Saint Laurent Rive Droite.
The new book, Rive Droite Editions Purienne showcases a series of soft black and white portraits, imbued with sexuality, sensuality and romanticism, photographer Henrik Purienne capturing intimate snapshots of each subject, riding in the back of cars, in hotel rooms and in the city lights of Paris.
With an unmistakeable signature and appreciation for the exotic and the ethereal, South African photographer and filmmaker Henrik Purienne brings to life a beautifully refined photographic series masked in voyuerism, nudity and erotic sensuality. Having being known to only photograph women with unmade faces and of natural grace, Henrik Purienne celebrates natural beauty and Anthony Vacarello's designs with exotic ambience, warmth and play. Models captured in natural and almost candid like moments, Saint Laurent is lensed through the eyes of an admirer or a lover, voyeuristic in nature, slowly down time and softly provoking the viewer.
Rive Droite Editions Purienne marks the fourth edition to be released as a part of Rive Droite editions, The edition follows suit of previous exclusive works collaborating with the likes of other esteemed photographers, inaugurating its first edition with Daido Moriyama along with Betty Catroux, Gray Sorrenti and Derek Ridgers fanzine release back in February 2021.
The book will be available and sold exclusively through Saint Laurent Rive Droite Paris and Los Angeles stores, with Rive Droite Editions Purienne being the next installment of Anthony Vacarello's vision behind the concept of Saint Laurent Rive Droite and its fast progression in becoming a cultural authority.
