I just love the playful conversation between illustration & model.
Art Power by Hicham Riad for Elle Belgium June ‘12
Kid Acne is known to some for his hip-hop recordings, to others for his street art. In this collaboration with photographer Hicham Riad for Elle Belgium it’s the graphic art that he contributes – though these cutesy cartoon creatures play musical instruments or, in one case, rock oversized hip-hop bling jewellery as if in nod to his musical roots.
It takes a young model like Robin Hölzken to interact with these illustrated creations. That’s because youth is the time before we rule the impossible out of our imaginations: imaginary creatures might just be invisible to adult eyes. Anne Rabeux’s styling shuns high heels or anything too grown-up, fitting in with the youthful vibe of this part-real, part-animated kingdom, but still playing to spring 2012′s fashion trends.
