"The inspiration starting point [for the shoot] was Raf Simons' last Jil Sander show and the amazing flower installation that Mark Colle designed for it, so it was really important for Robbie and I to have Mark with us on this project. We also took the inspiration further by developing the idea of the femininity in flowers. For sure there is some romantic aspect, but flowers can also be sensual, seductive, empowering, heady, but poisonous too...
I was very happy with Zuzanna as she was the perfect model to give us a wide range of poses and expressions in relation to the styling and the flowers. I wanted the music to reflective too of the variety of character a flower can have, you have the lyrics that show you the softer side (voice Oriane Leclercq) and the music which for me is as seductive as a dark orchid.
I want to thank also the whole team as they all did an amazing job! And for staying positive throughout this very intense shoot!" - Pierre Debusschere
