Punk goes primitive with Sasha Luss is ‘Born to be Wild’ by Anthony Maule for the 2013 June/July issue of Numéro #144. Following the order of disorder, this edgy editorial combines the forces of fashion and art in an effort to uses the power of punk to provoke. Meant to disrupt, disturb, inspire & insight the origins of this movement comes from the anti-establishment (Punk) sub-culture of the 1970’s. Beautifully rendered and artfully displayed, Maule uses his masterful techniques to give the illusion of aged paintings. Hard-core haute couture, (stylist) Samuel Francois embraces the heretic nature of the story with an inspired collection of savage styles from high end designers Alexander McQueen, Valentino and Vivienne Westwood. While Hugo Villard breaks all the beauty barriers with wonderfully wild makeup including a dark, exotic mask drawn on the face with eerie perfection. An ode to the anarchy of the avant-garde, it’s those who dare to travel outside the lines that keep the spirit of expressionism alive. And on the heels of this season’s highly successful, Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture – it’s clear modern fashion still finds this style utterly fascinating.
