Cut off point

30.03.2011 | Blog , Twin Life | BY:

Twin joined forces with Labour party women this weekend to march against the cuts to government spending. Protestors all dressed in green and purple – the colours of the suffragette campaign. Record numbers turned out at Temple tube station on London’s Embankment (the head count was estimated between 250-500,000) before joining the main march to Hyde Park. Harriet Harman, Yvette Copper and the young Luciana Berger were all showing support in the rally. We even spotted a couple of celebrities including Sienna Miller. It all ties in very well with the theme of the upcoming issue – REBELLION.

Twin Issue IV

01.02.2011 | Blog , Twin Book | BY:

Embrace the age of rebellion. Twin’s Spring/Summer issue is charged with the power and expectation of youth. In ‘The Year of Discontent’, photographer Clare Shilland shoots the young women who are fighting for their educational rights, in ‘She bangs the drums’ modern rebel Alice Dellal is celebrated by her closest collaborators and photographed by Paul Wetherall. Elsewhere, two prolific design duos – Rodarte and Meadham Kirchoff – share their inspirations, from rugged terrains to Riot Grrl, and we enter the homes of two downtown New York renegades – artist Aurel Schmidt in, ‘There’s something about Aurel’ and actress Chloe Sevigny in, ‘Kick ass’. Last but by no means least, for, ‘The Letter Set’ Costa-winning poet Jo Shapcott showcases the women who are igniting the form in a specially curated Twin poetry portfolio. It’s our very own rebel yell.
