Featuring South Sudanese model Ataui Deng, the editorial highlights top tier labels like Alexander McQueen, Dior , Fendi, Prada, Paco Rabanne, Navy, and H&M, amongst others brands. Stylist Jeanne Le Bault rounded up all kinds of dark blue garments for the shoot, while photographer Alex Franco accentuated Deng's beautiful skin tone exceptionally in the photographs.
