Frankly speaking any excuse will suffice to catch a glimpse of Lineisy Montero and full marks to M Le Monde for providing a handful of reasons to celebrate the latest issue. Look no further than the story by photographer Karim Sadli and stylist Jonathan Kaye starring the Prada Resort 2016 campaign model amongst others. Titled “L’essence de l’élégance,” which pretty much means en anglais what it sounds like in French, the story revels in the luxury of noble material realized in black, white, and combinations of the two. Lineisy (pictured) fittingly enters the story wearing a richly textured wool sweater by Balenciaga. There is a softness and genuine quiet to these portraits, which are but further reminders of Lineisy’s command the page.
