Note | Nudity Spring editorials may be obsessed with Donna Reed as Susie Homemaker or rich woman with a maid statements, but LOVE magazine’s Katie Grand puts a very different spin on the fashion moment with her spring 2012 edition. When Grand put Linda Evangelista on the first-ever solo LOVE cover, it’s the tag line that got our attention: “After Taste — Celebrating the End of Elegance with Linda Evangelista.”
This Mert & Marcus editorial ‘The Misfits’ trends against that intellectual backdrop. Starring Saskia de Brauw, Linda Evangelista, John, Angus, Miles & Erik, the images embrace Grand’s familiar theme of gender identity, transfluidity, male and female. Provocation and transgression run deep in Katie Grand’s soul like a breath of fresh air.
