Numéro France’s September cover “Couture duality,” photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino and styled by Babeth Djian, speaks to polarity in fashion. This is shown through the gorgeously stark black and white couture designs on display, which are further contrasted by piles of discarded clothing in the backdrop. The story points to the tension between the creation of art and the material waste it often results in, serving as an important reminder to the fashion industry.
