To launch its Summer ’08 Collection, Mishka will be unveiling a special capsule with internationally recognized photographer and culturally provocative filmmaker & video director Richard Kern.
Composed of 4 striking portraits, the collection will offer buyers an intimate glimpse into some of Kern’s most infamous and adored female subjects. Printed on 4 simple colors, the Kern for Mishka capsule illuminates the story of some of his most intriguing models including Lung Leg, a prominent scenster of the 1980s akin to Edie Sedgwick, that Kern can be accredited with discovering. To properly capture the collection, Mishka invited renowned erotic photographer Ellen Stagg – also a former Kern model – to shoot the special Look Book. Very much a disciple of Richard Kern, Ellen’s portfolio includes clients like VHI Publicity, I-D, Life, Mass Appeal, The Fader, MTV, Vogue, Interview and VICE Magazine to name a few.
To this day, Kern remains a quintessential element of what makes NYC’s art, film and music scenes so influential, inspiring and truly timeless. The collection featuring his work will be available at the Mishka Pop Up Shop in Williamsburg and other select stockist starting mid May.
