BEAUTIFUL HAND-COLORED PHOTOGRAPHS OF JAPANESE WOMEN IN THE LATE 19TH-CENTURY
Kusakabe Kimbei (1841-1934) was a Japanese photographer who learned his trade as an assistant to Felice Beato, the pioneering photojournalist who came to Japan to document its people and their culture. Japan had just been through a civil war that led to the restoration of imperial rule. The country had also been forced—under the shadow of U.S. Navy battleships—to open trading routes with America. This new trade brought technology, tourism, and for some, the opportunity to turn imposition to advantage. And that’s what Kimbei did.After learning all that he could from Beato, Kimbei established his own photographic studio in Yokohama in 1881. Kimbei had a natural talent for art and had spent part of his time coloring Beato’s photographs. Hand painting photographs was a way of redefining the medium and adding “an artistic Japanese intervention to Western technology.”

SEX: The Fashion Boutique That Made Punk Mainstream
 
As a countercultural movement, punk is equally remembered for its powerful music as it is for the eccentric outfits worn by its members. The bright colored mohawks, piercings, tattoos, leather jackets, and combat boots came to define an era where conservative governments drove young people to seek expression through rebellion and a defiant attitude against the establishment.

Nick Knight and stylist Katie Shillingford unite to celebrate key pieces from Comme des Garçons‘ A/W 16 collection. Rei Kawakubo‘s bubblegum pinks and architectural structures inform the shoot’s fantastical, piquant aesthetic. Whimsical make-up by Isamaya Ffrench adds to the effect.
