Glass presents Stellavision curated by Anna Pollack
THOUGH our doors are closed to the outside world, the fashion industry have brought us the magic of their brands to us. Stella McCartney launched Stellavision, a special channel on their Instagram dedicated to bringing us together with the creators who make up their global brand, ultimately creating one big #StellaCommUnity. The world has pressed pause for the foreseeable future and with this in mind, this week’s theme is family on Stellavision.
Staying connected with our loved ones, both biological and chosen is playing such an integral part to our everyday lives. New York based director Anna Pollack has been commissioned by Stella McCartney to present her family – chosen in this case – to explore the notion in its entirety.
An eclectic series starring a curated portfolio of creative friends wearing the new Stella McCartney SS20 lingerie range whilst in isolation. Oozing confidence and comfort, connections and individual stories have been mapped out in this project.
On Rockaway Beach in Queens, Claudia is studying under the sunshine and staying connected to nature through her creativity whilst embracing her surroundings, “I’ve been painting, reading, riding my bike and looking at things, planting seeds and watching The Wire” she says. Los Angeles based dancer, Aimee Grumbach is currently in Sea Ranch embracing California, “My favourite thing about where I am is looking out at the ocean, seeing whales spout water and waves crashing against giant rocks”.
Model and photographer Yulu is currently in Yucatan in Mexico navigating her time between the pool and beach alongside her best friend. Besides relaxing in the warmth of the sun, the pair have been baking, writing and mediating to pass the time. Reflecting on her serene surroundings, she tells Anna “I brought my Super 8 camera down here and I go on walks sparingly with it, trying to document the emptiness and the surreal serenity here. I’ve been really lucky to be somewhere with sun and with someone who’s like my sister to me”.
Spending her quarantine in under the palm trees in Jamaica, filmmaker Rebecca Williams is completing an online course and painting in between working on the post production of her latest short movie. Williams reflects on her favourite part of her days there, “My favourite time is the morning because the day still has all opportunity to be anything you want it to be.”
Kalia Champers, a New York based artist and filmmaker rocks out confidently with her dog to Black Sheep by Clash at Demonhead in her Stella McCartney lingerie. She explains, “We are in a band together… just don’t any songs yet”.
