Following a recent Highsnobiety exclusive, visual artist and performer, Andrea Maack, and director, Benjamin Hardman, reunite for another sublime, sensory special that sees the duo return to Iceland for an extraordinary Y-3 fashion editorial.
Maack and Hardman had originally returned to the country’s Arctic tundra expecting ice-white snow to immerse the senses and lend a haunting backdrop to Y-3’s futuristic aesthetic signature. However, this winter defied seasonal convention and for a while, there was barely any snow to be found. Not to be disappointed, the duo set out further afield, to Húsafell in West Iceland in search of snow, and by chance, they woke up to a blizzard of white magic.
Set against a vista of severe snow and mountains, Hardman captures Maack clad head-to-toe in the urban brutalism of Y-3’s functional silhouettes, but its contrast against the delicate opulence of Iceland’s frosted beauty becomes a sensory wonder in itself.
