The latest issue of Vogue Japan not only opens the gates to summer, it also reacquaints readers with Grace Hartzel’s sun-kissed side in the midst of her excellent Saint Laurent campaign in black & white. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, this Katie Mossman-styled story titled “The Luxury of Escape” takes the breathtaking Saint-Barth as its backdrop. Drawing from looks for Spring 2014, the story opens with Grace seated poolside wearing an elegant high-waisted two-piece swimsuit in blue. A yacht can be seen in the distance, a gentle breeze blows, sunlight warms the decks…escape looks a necessity, but one which Grace fashions into a luxury.
