THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF EDWARD ENNINFUL
Nick Knight and SHOWstudio have collaborated with Beats to present The Seven Deadly Sins of Edward Enninful, a film which plays tribute to 25 years of fashion by the acclaimed stylist. The concept features the seven classical sins, seven colours, and seven sounds alongside eight top models (with the sin of gluttony demanding two). The short film is a celebration of both Enninful’s renowned career and the increasing interaction between fashion and music. It stars Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Karen Elson, Naomi Campbell, Karlie Kloss, Maria Carla Boscono, Jourdan Dunn and Anna Ewers alongside clothing specially selected by Enninful.
A spectrum of designers are featured; from established labels such as Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Céline and Maison Margiela to emerging international talents such as Vetements and Marques Almeida.
