In this masterpiece of film meets luxeÂ Matthew Donaldson shows us Korean table tennis champion, actress and former model Sooyeon Lee in a way never seen before.
“It’s a vehicle to show how extraordinarily elegant she is,” says the Donaldson, who enlisted stylist Katie Shillingford to emphasize Lee’s technique. “The sport requires the body to jolt into action in an aggressive manner that is mesmerizing,” she says. “I wanted the clothes to accentuate these movements.â€�
Shillingford commissioned designer Geraldine Chevrolet to create bespoke fringed tights, gloves and a hat, pairing the custom accessories with neon, black and nude jumpsuits, dresses and leggings from Christopher Kane, Mark Fast, Jil Sander and Versace.
