“We always do a lot of collage print in every collection and thought it would be nice to make a couple of the prints come to life and for the model to be part of the world in a short film. I like making funny fantasy worlds like the dinosaur underwater in the film, and for S/S13 we made a fantasy holiday city with tulip fields, roller coasters, mountains and ferris wheels. Mostly the images come from 1930s and 1940s holiday postcards.
I have always worked with collage, but more so lately. We focus mainly on print, and the prints are usually collaged from photos we have taken or old found images. I’m inspired by lots of different collage artists, like original Aleksander Rodchenko works, they are amazing. Also there’s lots of great collage on 1970s album sleeves.”
Central Saint Martins graduate Emma Cook has been making a name for herself over the past few seasons for her digitally prints featuring everything from African motifs to languorous swans. For the launch of her A/W13 collection, which takes an abstract line with dazzling acid green dots, Aztec zigzags and Lichenstein-esque pop art stars, she has created a short film which inserts a model into a universe papered with the swirling patterns of the clothes. Eclectic, witty, cool, it is a reflection of the brand ethos, and here she speaks to AnOther about her collage inspirations that brought the visual world of the short to life.
This spring, Michelle Williams, star of Oz the Great and Powerful, features on the cover of AnOther Magazine and transforms into eight imaginary characters, shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo.
Inspired by the issue’s theme of There’s No Place Like Home, Williams gives a revealing and candid interview to Nancy Waters in New York, leading us on a journey through her unusual past homes, from childhood onwards. Since her youthful stint in Dawson’s Creek, three-times Oscar-nominated Williams has illuminated the best of independent cinema with leading roles in My Week With Marilyn, Blue Valentine and Brokeback Mountain, securing her position as one of her generation’s most sensitive and subtle actresses. And this March she shines as never before, as Glinda the Good Witch in Sam Raimi’s all-star prequel to the classic film The Wizard of Oz. The theme, There’s No Place Like Home, inspired by the original film, continues through the issue with interviews with personalities including Raf Simons and Ai Weiwei talking about their home environments.
Here we present an exclusive filmed interview with Michelle Williams, where she discusses her ideas of home and the mementos she has kept from past roles.

Everything is in the name. The candlelight condenses the secret around her, when the light of a neon wipes the mystery hastily. At the first of the rue Therese, on the dancefloor or in a reddening padded boudoir, the desire stages itself and wins with no arms in hands. Here, confidential swapping is a perfectionated art to the desire, the carnal vandale’s fantasies are requested to be revised upward or matured in substance.
The true eroticism doesn’t sell off, it goes like a chamber music play, and offers itself only to the enlightened anxious to to be gentle with their rhythms, theirs rituals, and the ones of others. Five star haven of the elegant libertinism, all velvet, in art nouveau arabesque and in meticulous bacchanal, the club Les Chandelles woos the senses more than it waists the essences.

Photographed in interesting positions by Viviane Sassen, and modelled by Canadian youthful beauty Anais Pouliot, the fall winter collection looks as lovely as it did a few weeks back on the runway.
