Zakk d’Larté x &REW

In late October I was offered the opportunity to model for designer &REW‘s final collection entitled “Onnagata”. Inspired by the Kabuki theatre term describing male actors who impersonate women’s roles on stage and Kansai Yamamoto’s costume work for Ziggy Stardust which too was inspired by Kabuki theatre and different forms of onstage costume changes. The end result was a creative display of bold Japanese-influenced fashion, mixed with our gender-fluid and androgynous style, not dissimilar to that of Stardust himself.

Photographed by the talented Kate Jenkins at Long Bay Beach in Auckland, I was accompanied by fellow model, Boyan Buha, for this creative endeavour into cultural diversity.
