Dark Matters

Mikael Jansson
Alastair McKimm.
Joan Smalls.
i-D Magazine.

A fittingly edgy tribute to the season’s most alluringly avant garde pieces. Unexpected shapes and textures abound in McKimm’s expertly edited selection of looks from Givenchy, J.W. Anderson, CelineMaison Martin Margiela and more. The stark wares are highlighted Jansson’s sleek photographic style and of course the endlessly appealing Joan. Top it all off with hair by Anthony Turner and shimmering bronze shadow by Hannah Murray and you have the makings of a spectacular cover feature.

  1. i met her with a friend of mine, who knew her. she was with her boyfriend. the most down to earth, kind, divine person.we shake hands, she introduced – Iam Joan Smalls. u new high in clouds 6monther youngsters should learn how to behave. this lady is pure example of well behaved woman! no doubt why you n.1 Joan. no doubt why your carrier will last long like the supermodels. xoxo

  2. Loving it! She’s had so many amazing covers already this year – mostly vogue and harper’s bazaar! 11 to be exact. I wish you’ve posted one of those!

  3. I wish models.com would do a feature on her again because we’re definitely in the midst of a major Joan Smalls moment. ELEVEN covers so far for 2013 alone. You guys also need to update her covers to include her HB Singapore, Brazil, & Thailand covers. Her Vogue Turkey cover from DECEMBER 2012 isn’t listed under her covers, it’s under her editorials list which is also VERY outdated.

    C’mon models.com keep up with her work PLEASE!!!
