For Fall/Winter 2015, ODDA pulls out all the stops, celebrating a range of icons with six covers, from Kermit and Miss Piggy to Pamela Anderson and Lucky Blue Smith. Editor-in-chief David Martin explains that, like so many others, he has always found inspiration in icons, whether they be celebrities, designers, or artists, and the entire issue makes those influences clear throughout, starting with an opening pair of features by Philip Meech and Hope von Joel starring Lucy Evans as Jean Shrimpton and Ben Allen as Michael Caine, reflecting the Swinging Sixties. The issue reaches further back in history with a gorgeous feature on Valentino’s latest haute couture collection shot against romantic Roman ruins, and also looks to the future as Miss Piggy and Kermit discuss their recent breakup and their brand-new show starting on ABC this week. Yi Chen and Ben Fern shoot Tom Webb in London’s sprawling new DSquared store, while Hugo Villanova embodies a Seventies skateboarder aesthetic at Coney Island by Taylor Edward and Javon Drake. Claudia Schiffer discusses her longevity and Francisco Lachowski talks fatherhood, and a generation of future icons, from cover boys Marlon Teixeira and Edward Wilding to Tobias Sorensen, Felix Gesnouin, and Adam Butcher, offer up words to live by.
Take a first look at the issue, out tomorrow exclusively at 10 Corso Como in Milan before its worldwide launch, below.
