Twin Issue X

24.04.2014 | Blog , Twin Book | BY:

In our tenth edition Twin celebrates trailblazers. Head of the pack is Jane Bown the prominent portraitist, now 89, whose powerful imagery is celebrated in a new documentary. We travel to Barnard College to meet Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, the graphic designer, professor and artist who was the first female to receive tenure at Yale University. We also step into the wonderful world of Langley Fox, the youngest of the Hemingway pack who is fashion’s model-of-the-moment. Elsewhere, photographer Boo George shows strength in beauty shooting Kati Nescher in her most womanly guise. And finally, Ben Weller goes back to the classroom to capture this season’s preppy Dior.

Wang’s Way

26.07.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

For his A/W 12 collection, Alexander Wang put on quite the visual spectacle – mirrors, supermodel reunions and all – making his minimalist campaign lensed by David Sims and starring Kati Nescher a complete departure, but no less captivating.

The New York designer’s collection, inspired by the surrealist manipulation of fabrics, is presented in simple black and white studio photographs, all the better for highlighting Wang’s clean-lined tailoring and outerwear invigorated by accents such as the Cubist slicing of a high-collared coat or slightly macabre mouth-covering fishnet turtlenecks.

In the span of five short and extremely successful years, Wang has progressed from painfully hip downtown designer to a creator with finesse and these images are just the thing to prove it.
