Antonio Lopez polaroids: “Blue Water series”.
Antonio Lopez was an illustrator, whose images can be found in all major fashion publications of 70s and 80s, from Vogue to Interview, and perfectly embody the mood, energy, sexuality and style of the disco era. A lesser known part of his jobs are all the polaroids he took for documenting the beautiful muses portrayed in his drawings. The “Blue Water series”, in which those beautiful women are snapped taking a bath, have for sure influenced a lot of future takes.

In 2008, Coco Rocha by Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello for Numèro, gives us new vibes adding some flowers on the water.
