Photographer Fumiko Imano and her imaginary twin have captured the publication for the Women´s Spring Summer 2019 collection. Shot on a set in Paris, the twins play the roles of both photographer and couturier as they frame, style and pour over Amber Valetta and each of her looks.
The model and actress obliges with a consummate performance of her own, twirling to show off the pleats of her patchwork silk dress, balancing a mini Puzzle over one of the twins´ shoulders, and holding out an arm of a suede shirt-dress so the other can pin its cuffs in place.
Symbolised by the exposed set dressing, folding reflections in the mirrors, and Fumiko´s visible cut-and-paste lines, the publication makes a statement about fashion as a construct of our making, just like the complex personalities projected in these photographs.
The collectible hardback has been published in an edition of 1400 hand-numbered copies.
