Wired For Sound - Lina Zhang & Lily Zhi

Chinese models Lina Zhang and Lily Zhi get wired for sound for Teen Vogue's "Sonic Youth" editorial photographed by Jason Kibbler. Stylist Caroline Newell kits the pair out in graphic prints and metallic hued ensembles from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jen Kao, DKNY, Milly, and Mary Katrantzou. In keeping with the editorial's futuristic theme, the model's sport boom-tastic head phones while staying connected with the ubiquitous iPhone 5S. Both Lily Zhi and Lina Zhang were noticeably absent throughout the Spring/Summer 2014 show season which saw a marked drop in the visibility of Asian modelling talent. With the call for greater diversity on fashion's runways being centred on black models, other minority groups found themselves on the outer. Represented respectively by IMG Model Management and Fusion Models, Zhi and Zhang possess two of the most distinctive Asian faces in modelling today. Zhang's heavy-lidded almond shaped eyes and Zhi's perfectly ovular face and delicate features make for a stunning juxtaposition as the two subjects leap, bound and take the odd selfie or two with Jason Kibbler documenting proceedings.
