AnOther Magazine A/W15

"Blurring the lines between fact and fiction is a game that both fashion and cinema play so well together. Fashion is the great fantasist and without fiction, cinema would be merely a documentary art. A fashion magazine should do the same – allow you to project your imagination into new territories, introduce you to the most unbelievable new ideas, invent new realities, and provide a new frame of reference from which to view the world." – Jefferson Hack

AnOther Magazine A/W15 blurs the lines between fact and fiction. Actors, characters, language and images are unbound and unleashed, inventing new realities and presenting inspirational ideas. Luca Guadagnino’s sun-drenched thriller A Bigger Splash provides a framework for this issue of AnOther. This winter, the auteur’s film will transport us to a pastel Italian idyll, starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton – the issue's cover stars.

Hollywood royalty and Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson explores her darker side in A Bigger Splash. Photographer Collier Schorr and AnOther Magazine Fashion Director Katie Shillingford present a new vision of an actress who loves to take risks in a beguiling story that culminates in three unique covers.

In a work of fiction co-authored by Tilda Swinton, Glenn O’Brien, Luca Guadagnino and Dave Kajganich, musician Marianne Lane, the lead character in A Bigger Splash, talks career crisis, recovery from substance abuse and the mysterious death of her producer Harry Hawks. Photographer Glen Luchford captures Lane in a striking story styled by Katie Shillingford, and a limited-edition cover.

John Galliano's spectacular ready to wear Autumn/Winter 2015 collection for Maison Margiela is brought to life in an epic shoot by Craig McDean, styled by Katie Shillingford with bewitching make-up by Pat McGrath. In an exclusive interview with Susannah Frankel, the designer opens up about his long-awaited comeback.   

For our unique MOVEment project, AnOther commissioned seven films from the world’s leading choreographers, designers, and filmmakers. The result is a dizzying celebration of kinetic couture.

Visionary director Wim Wenders guest-edits AnOther’s 32-page literary section, Document, sharing the novels and poems which have inspired his work, illustrated by Wenders’ own sublime photography.

Nicolas Ghesquière and Juergen Teller are brought together in conversation with Jefferson Hack, accompanied by exclusive images from Louis Vuitton's Autumn/Winter 2015 collection.

Plus: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eddie Peake, LUMA Arles, John Waters, Wolfgang Tillmans, Azzedine Alaïa and more.
