What could be more celestial than celebrating the launch of More or Less Issue 6 with a flight of Angels! Shot by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, we invited our favourite iconic supermodels to pose in underwear made from repurposed every day items. From belted jackets and thigh high boots made from newspaper and tape, to micro-skirts and bra’s fashioned out of bar towels and footballs, and a particularly cute one piece made out of kids toys, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Stella Maxwell, Sara Sampaio, Martha Hunt, Elsa Hosk, Lily Aldridge, Lais Ribeiro and Leomie Anderson, never looked so good. The pieces were made by our favourite arbiter of upcycled fashion, Kezako Paris, a brand which is spearheaded by the stylist Charlotte Collet.
Elsewhere in the issue we have invited Stylist Camilla Nickerson to team up with photographer Théo de Gueltzl to make beautiful sctuplres from the remnants of garments taken from clothing recycling plants, and invite Byredo’s Creative Director Lucia Pica to take a look at earthly beauty.
The issue also highlights the effects of climate change in Iceland, as photographer Colin Dodgson and climate activist Tindi Mar transport us to the Vatnajökull region of Iceland and guide us through a community that strives to protect an endangered glacier, and photographer Benjamin Tietge photographs delicate dresses crafted from Icelandic seaweed, made as a part of a scientific fashion experiment.
We also pay homage to artists who have the strength and conviction to continue creating through the violence and struggle of war, with a shoot styled by Emile Kareh and shot by Harley Weir. Using fashion pieces that have been created with the environment in mind, we work with artists from Palestine, Nigeria, Colombia, Honduras, Ghana, India, and Ukraine, amongst others. It has been heartbreaking watching the war in Ukraine unfold, and earlier this year creative director Vincent Champlain offered us a shoot by photographer Olya Oleinic to publish, which captured a beautiful moment of tranquility in Kyiv before the war broke out. Accompanied by a poignant piece by Kris Kozlowski Moore, it is sadly noted that one of the main subjects of the shoot had passed in the early days of the invasion.
As with every issue of More or Less, we have aimed to bring fashion, art, nature and sustainability together from around the world, making looking good feel good too.
COVER SENT AT RANDOM
More or Less is a new biannual magazine that believes "excess is no longer in fashion". Each issue showcases fashion at a more inclusive price point but with boundless originality. It celebrates style as a form of self-expression, rather than a means to conform to the status quo. It touches upon how we consume, from cost to sustainability. Less is more.
