The Future Looks Bright

Inoubliable Model Army predicted great things for American newcomer Athena Wilson back in October following her sensational debut at the Spring/Summer 2013 collections. The 18 year old California native of mixed American/Greek heritage scored a spot on Inoubliable Model Army's Top Ten Newcomers list for the season courtesy of her enthralling appearances at Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, Creatures of the Wind, Fendi, Missoni, Rick Owens and Versus. I spoke with Wilson following the show season about her plans for the future and she revealed tellingly, "I just want to shoot with some cool people and do projects that I find genuinely interesting. I'd really like to collaborate in some way for a really cool project." Wilson has since delivered on that promise landing front and centre in Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign lensed by Steven Meisel. What I truly adore about Wilson's look is that she represents an ultra modern take on beauty that cannot be so easily compartmentalised. Wilson is able to morph from androgynous girl meets boy ingenue to sophisticated debutante with all of the possibilities of a young Stella Tenant. Adding to Wilson's explosive start to 2013 is a Dazed & Confused editorial shot by Collier Schorr which encapsulates everything that I love about Athena; an uncontrived take on beauty that is relatable, original and aspirational.
