Sigrid Agren & Anais Mali | i-D Magazine Summer 2011 by Damien Neva

As fashion magazine issue themes go, hedonism is more than a touch superfluous. Luxury entreaties of every stripe from designer denim to drink greet readers at the turn of nearly every page. If that isn’t an explicit come-hither invitation to indulge wherever and whenever a two-inch mirror in a club toilet type opportunity presents itself, then I don’t know what is. Still, though even the most obvious themes including, yes, hedonism warrant added emphasis as is the case with the i-D Magazine Summer 2011 “Hedonist Issue.” Excess comes gift wrapped in a luscious ten-page, mostly black & white story featuring Ford’s Sigrid Agren and Anais Mali by photographer Richard Bush. Titled “Plinkplonk,” an alliterative variation on the British slang expression for cheap wine, this Veronique Didry-styled story uncorks with Anais wearing a varsity jacket by The Kooples, Moschino T-shirt, and vintage ring. Sigrid raises a plastic cup to the occasion in the second shot by wearing a Comme des Garçons white leather jacket and a Katharine Hamnett T-shirt and is joined by Anais who wears a Y-3 top and vintage jacket. Hair styling by Shon and makeup by Mathias van Hooff accentuate the downtown vibe that courses throughout the story and ultimately brings full circle this theme of hedonism cosigned by editor Holly Shackleton. Tautological or not, Shackleton is on point when she high-fives in her editor note that “there’s nothing more pleasurable than a summer devoted to pleasure.” So long as this pleasurable pleasure involves Sigrid Agren and Anais Mali, then the pleasure is most certainly ours!
