Celebrating Pride 2022
Soho store, New York
Yasha Lelonek is a New York-based actress, filmmaker and fine artist. In 2021, while in quarantine, she documented her transition and her life as a trans woman in her series, Transition Diaries Vol 1.
“I’m very proud of where I come from and who I am. And I love every part of myself. And I want that to be exuded in the way that I present myself to the world.”
Le Marais store, Paris
Djamila Imani is a multidisciplinary artist, model and performer from Paris. She refers to herself as a chameleon, where her art and drawings portray the plurality of feminine identity. In the way she dresses, she creates her own definitions of clothes and style, building her own gender-fluid fashion landscape.
“Femininity for me is not about being born as a woman. It’s about strength, bravery, wisdom, and a way to be more aware of who you are and what you want to say about yourself. As gender-fluid, I also embrace feminity, just like masculinity."
Regent St store, London
ShayShay is a writer, director and co-founder of the Pan-Asian cabaret collective The Bitten Peach, whose mission is to empower the queer Asian community by providing safe spaces, diversifying Asian representation, and educating non-Asians on racial issues.
“What I wear has been so important to me since I came out for the first time as queer. Instead of trying to blend in, I started to stand out.”
Kurfürstendamm store, Berlin
