Haute Death

Launched on 15 October 2012

Nick Knight and Edward Enninful straddle dark and light in this arresting couture story. The pair draw inspiration from the kind of macabre, nightmarish illustrations that litter vintage childhood fiction, offering a vision that is part Grimm's fairy tale, part Parisian opulence for the October 2012 issue of W magazine. Extending the contrast further, Knight juxtaposes the delicate images with pithy 'death app' films.
