Men’s Autumn Winter 2022

For Fall menswear, Erdem has looked at the work of two 20th century female photographers: Madame d’Ora and Madame Yevonde. Madame d’Ora was Dora Kallmus, a Viennese, self-taught portrait photographer, who counted Picasso and Josephine Baker as subjects and friends. Madame Yevonde was Yevonde Middleton, a London-based portraitist and still-life photographer who pioneered the use of colour in photography. Both characters led extraordinary lives with several different chapters, but we are concerned here with the pre-war period in the 1930s.
