A dynamic story told in dance, Sofia Boutella soars in ‘Performance’ by Jean-Baptiste Mondino for the February issue of Numéro France #140. A flight of fashion fancy, these dramatic styles tell a tale of inspired enlightenment. Each image more impressive than the last, these beautiful black designs drive the dance forward, symbolizing the evolution of modern woman. Wrapped, laced, belted and chained (stylist) Vanessa Metz creates modern day warrior attire, giving rise to the power of androgyny. Gathering the collective force of both the male & female sides, Mondino taps into a wellspring of eternal energy in this spiritual awakening of high art and optimism. The source of all creativity, the body echoes the universal rhythm of strength and survival. An ode to the essence of empowered momentum, Sofia Boutella is pure poetry in motion
