    It's the first day of Hari Nef's Tumblr Take-over!

    Hari Nef's Tumblr Take-over has officially begun! The actress, writer and model introduced her guest curation with a statement of intent: 'The fact is: fashion doesn’t care about trans issues, but it absolutely loves the trans aesthetic. Fashion loves fluidity, movement, role play, discovery–body joy and body horror. These are what they are, but in the context of bodies and clothes I would argue that they comprise what I call the trans aesthetic.'

    Over the next seven days Nef will be exploring this the history (and future) of this aesthetic, starting with an analysis of a Helmut Lang look from 2003. Follow now!

    Transformative: Sam McKnight on Irving Penn

    Our Transformative project - a running series of interviews with stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers - continues as renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight shares his experiences of working with photographer Irving Penn.

    Recalling a couture shoot in Paris with eighties supermodel Katoucha, McKnight explains the process behind creating hairstyles for Penn: 'He was using a particular light where the hair looked great when it was a little bit spiky and a little bit see-through. He always liked something that was very graphic and that was kind of the look of the moment.' McKnight also talks about other collaborations with Penn, describing the iconic image-maker as 'very quiet, very polite, very mannered. Very charming, lovely, but confident, as you would expect. And very old-school, so there was no misbehaving, there was no singing and dancing, there was no music.'

    Watch the interview now and don't forget to peruse Transformative's sister project Subjective for the model's point of view on some of the world's most famous fashion imagery.

    Men In Motion: Dancer Daniel Proietto and Nick Knight collaborate on a film

    Inspired and moved after viewing Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion at the London Coliseum (a celebration of the male dancer that compresses 100 years of beguiling choreography for men into a concise 100 minutes), Nick Knight asked featured dancer Daniel Proietto to perform his Sinnerman routine, choreographed by Alan Lucien Øyen, on film.

    Duty Free Pour Homme - New Fragrance by Tigran Avetisyan

    SHOWstudio is proud to present Duty Free Pour Homme, a new fashion film from Tigran Avetisyan created to introduce the Russian designer's debut perfume. 

    Comprised of four different fragrances (by Chanel, Dior, Calvin Klein and Gucci) poured into one 3D bottle, the perfume was designed to accompany the S/S 15 collection. As Tigran explains, 'The point of the collection was never to sell perfume but through the perfume sell the S/S 15 collection. It might not make sense, but it's actually the reverse logic of what big brands are doing, who produce collections only to support sales of their best selling perfumes.'

    Watch the film now and browse the S/S 15 collection in our newly launched SHOWstudio Shop!

    Transformative: Val Garland on Tim Walker

    Transformative is back! Hand-in-hand with our Subjective series, which sees Nick Knight re-imagine fashion photography from the model's point of view, our Transformative project presents a history of contemporary fashion imagery from the perspective of those who work behind the scenes: makeup artists, stylists and hairdressers.

    This week's interview is with makeup artist Val Garland, who discusses working with Tim Walker on a shoot for W magazine. Garland describes the makeup for one particular model: 'This young boy was just so incredibly gorgeous, and Edward [Enninful] was going, 'Just do what you want to do!' I thought, he's wearing this beautiful yellow dress, let's just cover him in yellow glitter. It was something so simple.' She also recalls collaborations with Lee McQueenKate Moss and Katie Grand, and explains why her relationship with Walker is so strong; 'What I love about Tim is that he is a storyteller. Anything can happen so it's always a lot of fun.'

    Watch the complete interview now and stay tuned for more as Transformative develops. While you wait, catch up on Nick Knight's chat with hairdresser Sam McKnight!
