Flipping the pages of a glossy magazine, we often focus on the model, the clothes, the fantastic photography. Keeping that in mind, many creatives work in the background to manufacture the sartorial dreamscape we see in print. Take, for instance, our Hilma af Klint inspired fashion feature in our inaugural issue. The exquisite styling and outstanding photography would have been severely lacking if it wasn’t for the magical set design by Alice Kirkpatrick.
