Katie Shillingford & Matthew Stone for AnOther Magazine, S/S 2014
Posted Feb 26, 2014
Fashion Director, Katie Shillingford, and Photographer, Matthew Stone, redefine the future of fashion for AnOther Magazine, S/S 2014. To fully appreciate Matthew Stone’s work, you must first understand the power behind Rick Owens‘ assault on convention. Daring to redefine the confines of truth, he delivers a defiant message of freedom and faith. A bold journey into the unknown, Stone and Shillingford capture our imagination, with a new concept on the idea of beauty. An evocative array of love and play, the act becomes the sentiment and the art the dream. Black, white, big and small these are the meaningless descriptors we use as we settle into our own skin. Each shot sets me free. Free from myself and free from the noise around me. A lesson in the sanctity of humanity, we learn to appreciate what connects us, in this life and beyond. Through every picture I am reborn. Each body plays a part, in this exquisite tale of truth and other longings. Skin touching skin, this binds us together, with a visceral mix of mental mastery. A separated force of united strength, this story reminds us that what begins as fear can turn into love. Rick Owens – SPRING 2014 READY-TO-WEAR.
