Elle on Elle 2021

With two new films about to hit Japanese theaters in the near future – Moonlight Shadow on September 10 and Parasite in Love in November – actress and model Komatsu Nana comes under the spotlight these days and the odds are it’ll be like that until late fall at least.

Over the years she has graced the covers of countless magazines in Japan and overseas, mainstream or indie, glossy and niche-like but though she’s been a regular guest of Elle Japan for featured articles, the cover of Elle Japan was missing in her big collection. This has just been fixed with the October edition of Elle: We Love Paris ! The actress and Chanel House Ambassador wears Chanel 2021/22 ready-to-wear collection, photographs by Shunya Arai of Yard Tokyo.

The October issue of Elle Japan is available from many online stores like Amazon Japan. For other stores and the digital edition please check Elle Shop.

The young thespian also gives her feelings about the consequences of the current pandemic. A situation that makes travelling and contact with others difficult and somehow leads to introspection. Photography by Jo Motoyo, article and interview by Vanya Harapan.
