Photographer and Creative Director Katarzyna Kornas @kkornas shares in exclusive ”The Emperor’s New Clothes”. Starring Hubert Majka @its_urfetish at G Models @gagamodels with styling by Daniel Ding @daniel__ding using Spring-Summer 17 pieces from Raf Simons, Comme des Garçons Homme, Maison Margiela, and Craig Green AW-16.
Reflecting on its work, the photographer tells us:
“The Emperor’s New Clothes” is the model test in a short editorial about the trend of following up the success that social media impose. By using an outdoor environment combined with an artificial background and spoiling it, I wanted to show the nature of man by referring to the Froid and ID philosophy. The clothes combine several themes: prints depicting nature symbolizing freedom, elegance symbolizing wealth, transparent references to Hans Christian Andersen’s The Emperor’s New Clothes symbolizing pride and the image of death symbolizing equality.
