Intimate footage of an 18-year-old Kate Moss has surfaced in a new campaign for Calvin Klein's fragrance, Obsessed.
Captured in the 90's, the series of dreamlike black-and-white film footage, shot by Kate's then-boyfriend, Mario Sorrenti, showcases the pair's Summer romance and accentuates Kate's natural beauty.
Bare faced, with a spray of freckles across her nose, the supermodel can be seen frolicking in the soft ocean waves of the British Virgin Islands, soaking up the sun and basking by the seaside.
The short film, which was, in fact, a collation of behind-the-scenes footage from Kate's iconic 1993 shoot for the fashion house's Obsessed fragrance, was rediscovered when Raf Simon wanted to revisit the campaign.
“One of the first things we did when we arrived at Calvin Klein was look at the Obsession archive. It was then that we discovered so many images that had never been seen and began to really understand the true love story behind Kate and Mario’s campaign,” the designer told Fashionista.
“It is a story of an iconic and inspiring moment in fashion photography as much as a deeply personal and human love story, the two are intertwined and can never really be replicated again.”
Reflecting on his relationship with Kate, Mario Sorrenti describes his girlfriend at the time as his muse.
“I was so passionate about photography, and Kate and I were in love… I loved photographing her,” said Sorrenti.
“She was the closest person to me. I would take pictures of her all of the time, and sometimes it drove her crazy, and other times she loved to be part of it. We had really good times."
"We were young, and I was never again so obsessed or so in love with photographing one person.”
But Kate has a different recollection, revealing in a 2015 interview with Nick Knight that the relationship crumbled due to Sorrenti's persistent photographing and pushing for her to go beyond her comfortabilities.
“I would wake up in the morning and he’d be taking pictures of me… I laid like that for 10 days, he would not stop taking pictures of that."
But really, the most remarkable aspect of this Calvin Klein campaign, is that Kate didn't even need to turn up to a shoot this time round - with the revamped men and women's fragrance set to make around $50 million at retail in its first year, according to WWD.
