Credit to Demna Gvasalia for switching up the very codes of luxury as they were once known. Fashion at the margins has long challenged what plays out center stage, but in this moment it all seems up for grabs. The cover story in the latest issue of T Magazine by Willy Vanderperre and Alastair McKimm is no better illustration of what is possible in fashion. Proportion and scale are put through the paces to create a silhouette once unthinkable. Drawing on the considerable modeling nous of Anok Yai, this ostensibly autumn outerwear is made to look, well, not simply plausible, but arresting. Anok will look beautiful no matter what, but in the vacuum of a photography studio, she looks out of this world. Dressed in a coat worn atop another coat, and finished with a hood, all by Calvin Klein 205W39NYC (pictured), Anok lays down a marker of the shape of things to come. That face, it must be said, can usher in change of any sort.
