ZANINI with A&S – Portrait 05

We are pleased to announce the arrival of the 23AW collection at Arts & Science, made in collaboration with Marco Zanini, designer of ZANINI. This season we developed a unique visual presentation for the collection: photographs of real people from diverse backgrounds wearing the collection. The photographs are set in the places that have a connection to the subjects' work and daily lives. “The marriage of fashion and photography creates a single expression,” says Zanini. The idea to photograph real people and not models began to develop last autumn, when Marco visited Kyoto and met this florist.
