Emily Senko | Marie Claire Italia Giugno 2011 by Damien Neva

The other week the first wave of images of Ford’s Emily Senko on the cover of Marie Claire Italia Giugno 2011 crashed over the interweb. In the midst of a what felt like a fortnight of rain in New York this cover by photographer David Slijper and stylist Ivana Spernicelli provided a sunny window on the summer to come. With summer weather here (or nearly every other day anyway) and the issue finally for sale on Manhattan newsstands, it’s high time to wade into yet another fine editorial from my favorite scandalously underrated European publication. The other month the same magazine served up Julia Saner on its cover and brilliant solo stories with Emily as Frida Kahlo (arguably the best editorial of 2011 thus far) and Delfine Bafort. This month’s issue doesn’t disappoint either with Emily modeling twelve distinctive, mostly bikini looks beginning with a Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière quilted patent leather jacket, cotton bikini by Verdissima, earrings with Swarovski elements by Sodini, Hèrmes beach towel, and various wrist bling by Cartier and Bulgari. The underlying message in case you missed it for this summer fantasy (fantasie estive) is the centrality of the bikini to even the most everyday outfits. Going ’round the corner for a bottle of milk? Search no further than look #8 for what to wear: an oversize trench with printed silk lining by Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, beaded bikini by Agogoa, silk scarf by Etro, “Navajo” belt in python silver and metal by Ralph Lauren Collection, leather bag with chain strap and studs by Valentino Garavani, and various bling by Tiffany & Co. and Fendi. Now that the wave and magazine have finally spilled ashore, I reckon it’s time to buy milk and had I the body of Emily Senko, then I wouldn’t be at a loss about what to wear.
