Honoring International Women's Day With a "Tough As Nails" Editorial
Orchestrated by London creative Coco Mell.
Today we celebrate women past and present. March 8 is the day we stand up to represent a century-old movement that represents women’s equality and emancipation – made more special by the progressive and altitudinal change in society’s thoughts.
“I wanted to create a piece that supports the core principles of what I.W.D. represents – unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action.”
Brands like Filling Pieces, KENZO, MISBHV and more were styled to drive empowerment with a mantra that shouts “Go away conformities!” with an “IDGAF” attitude. Those who embodied the growth in the modern day social media wave graced the editorial with a strong and diverse note.
But there’s still a long way to go. Women are still prosecuted and are bogged down with sexism, discrimination and misogyny’s weight. Today – and all day’s moving ahead – is about achieving gender parity and to toast the strong women that surround us all.
Brands used: Ashley Williams, ASOS, Caine London, Cats Brothers, Emma Brewin, Fleet Ilya, Filling Pieces, G.H. Bass & Co., IKKS, Kangol, Kate Spade, KENZO, Kickers, MISBHV, Monki, Paul & Joe, Sisterhood, Rockins, Ruth Melbourne, Waven & WeSC
