The recording industry and the fashion industry have always walked hand in hand through the decades, constantly challenging and re-inventing each other. The same is true of this latest collaboration that's bringing together two epic creative forces for Spring/Summer 2019.
Together with his wife and creative collaborator Michele Lamy, Rick Owens’ work, lifestyle and playful commentary on the fashion industry has attracted interminable curiosity. As for his clothes, the asymmetrical cuts, meticulous draping, and convention-defying design has established his brand as a niche, but, global, empire.
Over the course of an ongoing 55-year career, Duane Michals has constantly reinvented himself and, in many respects, the conventions of the narrative photographic story, never content to settle on the limitations imposed by technology or taste. We consider his legacy through the prism of his celebrity portraits.
During a career that spans nearly half a century, his work has attracted praise, “a wake-up call to the modern world”, and from the other side, “nihilistic pornography”. Photographer, film-maker, artist and counter-cultural figurehead Larry Clark captured youth culture before youth culture was even a thing.
A graduate of London’s Royal College of Art, Andersen has been steeped in authentic men’s streetwear from the start, although she declines to label her clothes as such. “It’s neither streetwear or sportswear. It’s a lifestyle brand. It’s about redefining luxury and lifestyle using elements from sports and streetwear because these are the essentials for our generation.”
As one of the UK’s most prominent portrait photographers, Brian Griffin has, for the majority of his career, been taking images of a world that seems imbued with a particularly British sensibility. And by that, we’re not alluding to our post-Brexit state of island insularity, but one that has consistently, yet perhaps secretly, embraced a sense of the anarchic.
Thanks for signing up!
