The line between advertising and editorial has long been blurry, but that is not to say any confusion involving, say, Dior and Patrick Demarchelier is to be overlooked. Far from it! The latest issue of Dior Magazine features a cover story starring Grace Hartzel, who leads an intrepid band of strong Dior women. Longtime muse of Demarchelier and star of the current Dior advertising campaign, Grace is a natural choice to embody the spirit of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s ready-to-wear collection for Autumn / Winter 2017. Photographed in the urban wilds of Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, the cover story offers a distinctly editorial take replete with obscured perspectives, chain link fencing, barbed wire, and plenty of grit.
