Showers and Flowers

Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello and Camilla Akrans

For Numero’s June/July edition, photography duo Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello would dip model Coco Rocha into a bathtub, brightly colored flowers swirling around her, afloat in the bath water.  Appearing ethereal and weightless, Rocha resembles a Gustav Klimt mermaid. Nearly a year later, photographer Camilla Åkrans shot Mariacarla Boscono in a flower-filled tub, however, in this version, the tub is empty save for the exotic blooms.
