Candice Swanepoel for Rag & Bone

The Rag & Bone DIY Project is unconventional – it gives the model the absolute freedom in terms of styling, leaving her to arrange her own photoshoot.

This time model Candice Swanepoel is given an assamblage of wardrobe pieces and a camera. She explores sunny beaches in Brasil and Bora Bora, styles her own looks and takes raw photographs. Miss Swanepoel has the uncanny ability of combining adorable and sexy and she does this to full effect in such casual clothes as jeans, leggings and simple white tops. But most importantly, we can feel her ease and comfort seeping through the pictures, frolicking in places reminiscent of a private paradise. Shots of her playing with a starfish while the wind rustles through her hair, Candace gives us an intimate glimpse at a private moment.
