Jacket and pants / J.W. Anderson
If you remember these, you’ve been following along for quite a while. (ILY)
Back in 2013 – I found an email in my inbox from Nick Knight. Immediately I recalled an interview I read in i-D magazine with artist Rei Nadal who found herself in this exact situation. ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if this was actually real’ she thought. ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if this was actually as real as it was in that Rei Nadal interview’ I though.
Later on Nick Knight told me that it was Rei who showed Love Aesthetics to him. Nick hooked me up with stylist Agata Belcen – a van drove from the UK to The Netherlands filled with 3 big boxes of the latest sickest fresh of the runway clothes. Which we got to play with for a week curation of the legendary SHOWstudio tumblr.
I ran into these – which we never used- while cleaning up my old hard drive this week. Strange angles and dimensions in a leather ensemble from an early J.W. Anderson’s collection. Thank you forever Nick, Rei, Agata and Romeo.
