Channelling the spirit of provocateur Helmut Newton, Barcelona-based swimwear brand allSisters looks stunning set in the Barcelona Pavilion. Designed by Mies Van Der Rohe in the twenties and recontructed in the eighties, the Pavilion continues to inspire debate and artistic response to this day. The models were photogaphed by Raúl Hidalgo in Newton’s trademark analog style, heightening the dramatic aesthetic effect of the eco-conscious swimwear brand and the clean lines of the Pavilion, giving a suitably theatrical air to proceedings.

The use of shoes, props and fishnet hosiery accentuates the beauty of the models and the black and white of the allSisters bikinis and one-piece swimsuits, contrasting with the stark angles of Mies Van Der Rohe‘s masterwork. It’s a bold look in a bold setting; whether you’re already an admirer of Helmut Newton, Mies Van Der Rohe, the Barcelona Pavilion and indeed allSisters, SEEN feels they come together in a perfect storm of monochrome, line, curve and aesthetic to create something truly unforgettable.
