Birds of a Feather...

W Magazine recruits four of modelling's avant-garde faces for an editorial lensed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott entitled "East of Eden." Established model Saskia de Brauw plays matriarch in a tale of pure fantasy with newcomers Ondria Hardin, Yumi Lambert and Xiao Wen Ju taking the art of modelling to a whole new level. Edward Enninful takes inspiration from the Asian culture with the four models rendered virtually unrecognisable courtesy of hair and make up by Malcolm Edwards, Odile Gilbert and Lucia Pieroni. Enninful puts a playful spin on the Japanese themed shoot with the models donning elaborate kimonos paired with bustiers, dress shirts, and bondage wear. W Magazine embraces the process of transformation that is an important component of the modelling process with newcomers Yumi Lambert, Xiao Wen Ju, and in particular Ondria Hardin slipping right into character amidst a flurry of birds, feathers and flights of fancy.
