British model Adwoa Aboah skyrockets into another rung of fashion industry achievement, teaming up with photographer Juergen Teller in a new photo collaboration for Burberry. The images will drop throughout 2018 and feature Aboah together with her friends and family. In almost USA southern tradition, we meet Adwoa's including her cousins Alfie Husband, George Husband, Richard Theodore-Aboah and Kwame N’Dow, as well as Montell Martin and Mae Muller. The group occupies a park bench along Regent’s Canal in North London, wearing pieces from the brand's new collection, which will be available to buy from January.
Juergen Teller's work is popping up everywhere right now, with his trademark vision of scraping off glossy fashion veneer. Last night AOC featured The Cut's luxury jewelry and accessory baubles arranged in a first cousin of flower-arranging style Ikebana -- a look writer Stella Bugbee calls 'Freakebana'.
Perhaps I'm spending way too much time watching 'The Crown' in the age of Trump -- against the backdrop of Charlottesville and Harvey Weinstein. Writing for T Magazine, Deborah Needleman spoke of Ikebana's contemporary appeal to “its direct and personal connection to nature, its awareness of and emphasis on decay in an era in which our own ecological and environmental ruin feels more vivid than ever.”
There is something quite deep going on here, in these new Burberry images, in the shakeup at British Vogue and the rise of Edward Enninful as editor-in-chief.
