It is not painted in countless colours, but instead it is made out of infinite stardust, it is not whimsical, but instead it hides a punk quality underneath all the layers of black and white. Liane Hurvitz’s unconscious dream is unexpected and loud, but beautiful in all of its rough delineation. Shaping an attitude rather than depicting a story, the photo shoot could easily speak of the past, the present or a distant future.
If the black lips and the double ponytails adorned with equal parts chic and edgy gold barrettes don’t give it away, Lucy Rosenberg’s galaxy print designs, finished off with exaggerated shoulders and a recurrent criss cross lace-up detailing, do revoke the existence of the punk fashion element, but through a fresh approach. Corsets, plastic chokers and leather harnesses slightly covering the face, also thrive on the unpredictable.
Millie’s fearless attitude, enhanced by Sarah Cross’s impeccable punk take on hair and makeup, manage to solidify what is already a powerful vision coming both from the photographer, and the designer.
