To the moment when you’re fully submerged in the sea and you can only hear the deep echoes of the unknown. To the moment when you’re basking in the sun and your fingers sink into the course, dry sand beneath you. To the moment when you discover salt crystals on your body.
The calming effects of the ocean have long inspired a meditative state of being and, as travel restrictions impede our international summer plans, Coast to Coast takes a visual journey with algae clay-clad Senegalese-Parisian model Marie Fofana. With sustainably sourced organic pieces from the Côte d’Azur in France to decorative oceanic headpieces and accessories from the Côte d’Ivoire in West Africa, Fofana and GRAZIA pay homage to the cleansing spirit of the sea. Featured, too, is Ivorian fashion designer Lafalaise Dion, well known for creating elaborate headpieces using cowrie shells that are representative of African legacy and spirituality. Her pieces were famously worn by Beyoncé in her music video “Spirit”.
To the moment when the ocean is calling.
