Helena Christensen is far beyond what you imagine a typical supermodel to be. When we meet her at London Fashion Week she is engaging, passionate and fun to speak to, with a surprising nine tattoos dotted all over her - I just get inspired, she quips.
The campaign for her third collaboration with Triumph is romantic but beautifully dark, shot among twisted trees in dusky twilight. The location was scouted by Christensen herself in the north of Denmark. The shoot really creates the perfect atmosphere and mood for the collection, which was inspired by the Nordic weather.
The type of light that the shoot evoked leads smoothly onto one of Christensens major passions - her photography. She is currently working with Rika magazine, shooting inspiring and creative women including Pamela Love, Liv Tyler, Camilla Staerk. Another of her subjects is Lilly Mcmenamy, whose mother, Kristen was a great friend of Christensens when they worked in the industry together. Christensen explains what a nice moment it was shoot her friends daughter and could see so much of Kristen in her, to which Lilly candidly replied, but my mum is crazy and I am not.
