Before fashion film, there was fashion photography, and before fashion photography, there was fashion illustration. Dazzling the pages of many of fashion's most revered publications, wondrous illustrations adorned the covers (and continued to decorate the inside pages) of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Flair, Tatler and many more throughout the first half of the 20th century, proving quite an asset to the quintessential style bible. Having always believed in the power of illustration, primarily when used to communicate a mood or palpable presence, SHOWstudio have long been inviting fashion's most talented illustrators, on and under the radar, to offer their unique talent in interpreting the latest season's collections.
Kühl's signature illustration style takes pride in delicately reflecting the everyday highs and lows of human emotion. Working with a combination of pencils, oils and watercolours, her unique depictions eerily illustrate the beautiful and the dammed, the haunted and the angelic - all while paying attention to even the smallest of detail. Choosing to illustrate the designs of Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, Gucci, Moschino, MSGM and 1017 ALYX 9SM from this season's Milan menswear shows, Kühl exhibited not only her refined skill but also the power of her imagination, interpreting looks from the collections above to fit in with her escapist and dream-like vision. Get to know her in the short clip below.
