At once artful and erotic, Jac Jagaciak drives the fashion narrative forward in ‘Pulsion’ by Txema Yeste for Numéro #145 August 2013. Propelling us into another dimension this penetrating piece dares to look at the idea of sexual desires? Instead of selling the art of seduction, Yeste asks us to consider the concept of craving. What do we hunger for? A stimulating prospect, by turning the topic on it’s head, we can begin to make the distinction. As women we are trained to be tuned into other’s needs & wants, so for many of us, the idea of personal pleasure can be a foreign concept. For all the strides we have made in the way of advancement, the idea of female satisfaction is still often considered a taboo subject. Providing a moving metaphor on the subject, (stylist) Franck Benhamou brings the darker side of noir-inspired styles out of the night and into the light. Creating a dichotomy of riches, Jagaciak is shot in a series of black leather/lace, at the height of daylight under the searing hot sun. Two worlds colliding, this stimulating story speaks to the subject of sex and shame. Shot through a shroud of sheer fabrics, Yeste makes his message clear – until we get comfortable with our own carnal appetites, we will never be able to take down the veil of our own making.
