A journal curated from a designer's archive
Archivist is non-seasonal and does not purport to sell its audience clothes; it showcases designers’ archives, important personal collections and new emerging talent. Three Faces: Archive Chalayan features the three female archetypes that define the fashion industry: the fresh, young face of a model; the familiar face of a supermodel; and the expressive, ‘real’ face of an actress all compete for greatest desirability. Trained ballet dancer Lida Fox, supermodel Kristen McMenamy and German actress Bibiana Beglau are photographed wearing clothes from the archive of designer Hussein Chalayan.
