Spring is seen through the eyes of youth in “Fashion Now” shot by Daniel Jackson for i-D Magazine, Pre-Spring ’16. Alastair McKimm captures the concept of couture with avant-garde styles unlike we’ve seen. Chiara Mazzoleni fires things up in a flaming, haute one-piece then falls against a leopard print wall. Fashion floods the pages like a concerto of glam punk dreams, as Marjan Jonkman rides the rails in red with nylons made entirely of safety pins. Stella Lucia starts out with nuanced subtlety then moves to anti-static style, with a leather coat that’s covered with LV signage. Varya Shutova brings the heat, with a Gucci embossed green suit and matching, pink pineapple tie. As Pooja Mor celebrates the art of being, with a leather vest fitted over a tattooed shirt reading like second skin. And finally, Shelby Hays delivers a breathtaking shot in black/white, while Kiki Willems stands in poetic silence, at the center of an empty office. The incidence of illusion echos dreams as avant-garde energy rises up.
Amilna Estevão grabs the spotlight with a yellow, feathered dress-coat topped with neon blue shadow. Cosmetic art explodes, as Romy Soleimani invites us to experience one of the most evocative color creations we’ve seen this season. Bare beauty breaks as black lines ride around the eyes and through the brow bone. Makeup that’s made to make us think. Graphic shapes form around the optic area, as pictures portray the face of the future. Pooja’s skin radiates like silk, as her lips burst out in vibrant red. Jamilla Hoogenboom lets her facet be displayed as a symbol of strength, with bleach out brows and nothing more. Wings of wonder deign to take flight batting their lashes as they soar outta site. Cayley King’s nude features remind us that truth is found in the purity of clean. Hairstylist, Holli Smith goes to extremes from a White Castle lid to a faux plastic crown with zany black stripes. Coiffure shows our depth of difference while connecting us through creation. Art mimics the systematic play of punk, as chaos is echoed in the crimped bends of hair. Set & Creative Designer; Gerard Santos… the spirit of individuality rests in the hands of our youth -as the permutation of origination is seen in dernier-cri.
