COVER: TIAN YI & CHRYSTAL COPLAND BY CHRISTOS KARANTZOLAS, SCHÖN! #20,
Posted on February 20, 2013
“This is not the stuff of science fiction. This is the real future and the future is now!”
Amidst a towering metropolis, Tian Yi and Chrystal Copland are giving off some serious futuristic fierceness as they stand tall, “hurr did” and nails painted wearing items from the innovative Junya Watanabe Spring/Summer 2013 collection on the Christos Karantzolas lensed cover of Schön! #20.
Ironically, for an issue titled “The Future Is Now”, the opaque blue filter adds a slight retro, 1970s “Star Trek-esque” feel to the image, (especially when coupled with that particular collection), which I quite like and more-so in it’s translation to print.
As well as exploring innovative techniques within the fashion world, the issue looks at developments in fields as diverse as architecture and animation, music, technology and the media.
Side Note: I had to LOL at the amount of times I wrote Yuan Ti instead of Tian Yi… That’s my D&D geek side coming through!
