Agnes Nieske, Aya Jones, Estella Boersma & Willow Hand explores a new world order, in ‘Fade to Black’ shot by Jamie Hawkesworth for Vogue UK, 09/15. Simplicity masks the art of evolutionary movement as we shift into a season of change. Gone are the days when dressing like a man was considered advanced. Settle into the phenomenon of forward fashion with sculptural silhouettes unlike we’ve seen. Space age designs take on edge with shapes that redefine sartorial architecture. Stylist, Joe McKenna, looks behind to see ahead in this 80’s inspired story filled with future inclinations. By defining the dominance of dark we find ourselves twisted in the technology of truth. Voluminous pieces speak with casual aplomb as we take the concept to the next level. Billowing sleeves transform trends while over-sized outfits find form. Architecturally inspired proportions evoke a sense of strength, like a couture conductor attuned to the sounds of silence. The music of modern makeup plays on as Lucia Pica celebrates the nuance of subtle beauty. Bold brows provide stable surroundings as naked eyes dare us to see. The palate of perfection is captured in the movement of youth. Strong features forego the idea of being covered, as the body becomes a work of creative art. Hairstylist, Anthony Turner, goes from wild & frizzy to long & wavy as he invites the torrent of texture to fly free. Turning the idea of androgyny on its head this piece invites us to explore a new wave of avant-garde style.
