THE TOUCH BY NAN GOLDIN
The Australian label talk about their working process with the legendary photographer and the ideas behind the shoot featuring Erin Wasson.
Australian label Scanlan & Theodore have been making beautifully simple and elegant womenswear from their Melbourne based HQ for over 23 years. Designed with a fierce sense of individuality, and a strong understanding of artistic creativity embedded into their ideology, the labels' clothes have garnered admiration from a number of high profile icons over the years, including the likes of Carine Roitfeld, Sienna Miller and Mary-Kate and Ashley. Since 1993 they have regularly collaborated with fine artists on the images accompanying their collections, and for the forthcoming Spring Summer 2011 look book have worked with infamous stylised documentary photographer, Nan Goldin.
The resulting images bring together Goldin's particular aesthetic, one of capturing hazy almost dreamlike moments in a raw yet still very beautiful way, and Scanlan & Theodore's chic originality. This, combined with Goldin's choice of model Erin Wasson's classically poignant look, has produced a series of incredibly striking photographs.
