Cara Delevigne wearing Bape hoodie gif  for i-D Magazine's A to Z Guide to WINK

Being witness to the works of creative genius and talent is always an extraordinary moment. It’s like hearing our favourite X-Factor contender sing for the first time, then seeing the camera pan around to confirm that the nation feels exactly the same as we do, because not only is the entire audience on their feet and teary eyed, but as are Gary, Nicole, Louis and Sharon. It’s that moment when you know you’ve stumbled upon something brilliant.

Within a few very short seconds we get that familiar chill, followed by the goosebumps that raise the hairs on our arms. Then we grow warm with pleasure, we start to feel ourselves glow. A sensation of electricity confirms we’re still so alive and that inward smile beams outwards. We feel proud that the human race, our being, is capable of such a feat. We feel perplexed by the creator’s genius or talent and we momentarily wish we could be part of that genius, own that talent, have conceived that idea.

…If you’re a creative and you’ve seen i- D Magazine’s A to Z Guide of WINK you’ll know exactly what I mean – if you haven’t seen it, feast your eyes on director Jérémie Rozan and fashion director Charlotte Stockdale’s genius.

It’s like witnessing a a cocktail of creativity, featuring amazing fashion pieces from the world’s greatest fashion designers, twenty six words and phrases written in carefully selected type fonts, each word closely linked to its letter in the alphabet; C for Chic, how chic is that Celine coat and how clever is that link? Or Georgia May Jagger, representative of the letter E, so expertly expressing herself in that famous Elizabeth Hurley dress.

And amidst all that word play and the creativity, the models are thrown into the mix. Miranda Kerr donning not much more than a pair of Chanel nipple covers, Joan Smalls looking very old school glamour and of course Cara Delevigne, the grand finale, the piece de resistance. Unveiling herself from beneath the confines of a Bape hoodie, how much justice does Cara do for friend Pharrell’s Bathing Ape clothing line? Indeed, she is the piece de resistance and you will rewind and playback so you can watch her a few times and maybe even consider rocking that eye make up.

It was all of this creative genius, these two minutes and twenty two seconds, these twenty four models, Rick Owens and J W Anderson that inspired me to write this post today and that will inspire a change at COAD!

I’m excited to try something new…

Watch this space!
