Willy Vanderperre for AnOther Magazine S/S10

Panos Yiapanis creates a cocoon of clothing around model Eniko Mihalik which Willy Vanderperre brings to life in his convulsive fashion film

Willy Vanderperre and Panos Yiapanis came together this season for the first time to shoot for AnOther Magazine. “We have a mutual understanding of each other’s work,” says Panos. “It was amazing.” Cocooning supermodel Eniko Mihalik in layers of clothing, curved around her shoulders and buttocks, Panos created the silhouette without any visual reference. “They were just shapes that were in my head,” he explains, “which are hard to verbalise.” Focal points were plaid shirts bandaged around Eniko or woven through the cut-out cup of her under-wired bra; reworked items such as printed trousers with studs, and a tartan kilt with woven chains, amongst others, which were made by Panos with his studio manager Philly Piggott and his studio team. Willy’s fashion film exaggerates Eniko’s sinuous movements in his jolting use of slowness and speed.
