To mark the return of 2(X)IST swimwear for Spring 2013, 2(X)ISTENCE, the e-zine of 2(x)IST, runs the exclusive photo editorial “It’s All Greek To Me,” by celebrated fashion and beauty photographer James Moritz and Doug Hill. For this special spread, the photo duo traveled to Mykonos Island, Greece—along with a suitcase stocked with 2(X)IST SWIM and Underwear—and shot model Matteo Betteo around the beautiful vistas of the Aegean Sea.
“We had been to Mykonos many times over the years and had always wanted to do a shoot to capture the beauty,” says James. “The day of the shoot was the most magnificent day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun beamed down on us intensely, yet the breeze coming from the sea kept us cool.”
Lucky not only with weather, the photo team scouted model Matteo on site in Mykonos, where a brief encounter turned into a whole day of shooting 2(X)IST Swimwear and Underwear.
“Matteo spoke little English, but took direction very well through the help of a translator, who explained in Italian,” recalls Doug, “He was a pleasure to work with a handsomely charming yet ruggedly masculine.”
