In her latest campaign, designer Sophie Theallet appeals to the World Citizen with photographs of several luminaries for her spring/ summer 2017 collection.
“Two gifted photographers captured the fierce empathy of thirteen women who believe in what I believe: the possibility of a new potential for women, for human beings. Together. Mothers. Daughters. Sisters of every creed, color, size, social fabric, race, age,” wrote Theallet in a press missive.
In one set of photographs, Theallet turns to:

In press materials, the designer also writes:
“We travel diversity. We travel creativity.
“We travel doubts. We travel hopes.
“We are whisperers of emotions and stories, which we constantly have to sew and seam.
“Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter.
“Whatever clothing we create, we’re creating it for real women who live in a real world, and that world is diverse.
“We expect richness from our lives, genuine richness.
“We expect togetherness from our interactions. We seek humanity in diversity.”
