The re-revolution of the punk rocker pretence

Today we witness the ultimate testament towards modern fashion’s interpretation of punk style with this striking photography shoot. This predominantly accesorised and heavily styled shoot features the enduring and reviving notions of that heavy punk decoration, including one that Givenchy did much to make an icon of.

There is a certain “shock power” that comes with the punk style of fashion, one that photographer Niklas Hoejlund and make-up artist Louise Polano manage to capture perfectly in this alternative beauty portraiture. Punk, as a concept and as something that is conceptualised within fashionable apparel, holds a particularly strong attitude towards life, it is somewhat indulgent in its views and the way in which it wants to represent itself.

Luckily for us there is nothing one can do that is too far beyond acceptance in terms of fashion – multicoloured heads of hair, completely see-through clothing, spiked underwear – all pushing the boundary but ultimately finding its acceptance. Hoejlund plays with and emphasises the push of these boundaries through the extreme and almost haunting styling of horns, spiked nose rings and silver fangs. Giving dark and stark life to the rebirth of the punk style.

Born into the humble town of Franschhoek, South Africa it was little wonder that Chevaun Roux would find her flavour in life through good food, good wine and stylish apparel. After completing a Bacherlors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics the world of freelance writing became the first choice in occupation, with no regrets and having never looked back. With a zest for anything with colour, vibrance and essence she found herself diving further into the world of fashion and design; from thifting vintage wedding dresses to pouring through new and modern jewelry pieces. This self anointed bohemian indentity believes in all the partisan revolutionary ideals of love, beauty and freedom, and when she isn’t writing or editing you can find her at the kitchens helm creating her latest milkshake masterpiece.
