In unserem ‘Runway to Reality’ Report haben wir die wichtigen Modejournalisten gefragt, wie sich die Produkte von den Schauen der letzten Berlin Fashion Week “im wahren Leben” tragen. Hier ist die Fortsetzung von Ana Finel Honigman (Autorin u.a. beim T Magazine, Dazed & Confused, Sleek) goes ‘Black Swan” mit Kaviar Gauche Bondage-Heels:
“Going beyond Gonzo journalism, I enlisted my dear friend Casey Lessard to shoot a series of images spoofing my banal student life. They star Sam Hardwick, the angelic young man who serves me countless coffees every day in my favorite local café, and the shoes, with me in a supporting role. Beside providing delightful company, Sam looks likeone of Jean Cocteau’s drawings of boys whose golden youth matches the grace and power of ballet embodied in the shoes.
My initial plan was to have Sam pose as my student for a staged “tutorial”. However, we skipped that shoot because the photosession rapidly became ratherrisqué and, since I do teach students at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Developmentin Berlin, even make-pretendimpropriety blurs a line that I’d never consider crossing. Instead, we played with another aspect of my reality – extreme klutziness. I can fall and bust my heel in snow-boots, which I recently managed to do, after which a frind nursed my wound in Oxford’s charming Bottega wine café. Recreating the scene with nail-polish, an Alexander McQueen skirt and Sam posing as my savoir, I demonstrated why I can’t wait to return to Berlin for the right setting in which to realistically wear shoes this gloriously decadent!”
