These days authenticity is in short supply. Even news is dubious. British Vogue comes correct, though, and none more so than since Edward Enninful took the helm last year. The February 2018 issue, the second of the new editor-in-chief’s tenure, is no exception and includes a Spring 2018 collections story by Craig McDean featuring amongst others Selena Forrest and Hiandra Martinez. Wearing a elbow-length pink gloves and rubber top and matching skirt from Calvin Klein 205W39NYC by Raf Simons, Selena (pictured) is a statement of intent personified. “Visual representation of me curving all the fakes,” said Selena in a post on Instagram. Not to be outdone, Hiandra unleashes a flurry of Emoji black hearts in an Instagram post of her own dedicated to Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello. Both models are unmistaken on which side their bread is buttered. The campaigns they have done for the global brands Calvin Klein and YSL are part of what gives them currency in the industry today. Emboldened, both can swat aside all the fakes and thereby usher in this “New Order” that is championed in this story.
