Avant-garde pansophic Vincent Darre presents Lynne Koester and Paolo Anchisi in an homage to the equally achroamatic Jean Cocteau in a stunningly original editorial for L’Officiel. The real-life mother and son first appeared together in a 2010 spread for V Magazine, and the flawless genetic apple did not fall far from the tree. Koester has not aged a day since her regular appearances in Gianni Versace editorials of the 80s (not to mention serving as the muse of the late Gianfranco Ferre). Paolo has made his own mark as one of the most in-demand models today, appearing in blue chip campaigns for Armani Exchange, Pierre Balmain, Versace, and Dolce and Gabbana to name a few. Lets let this truly original and artistic spread speak for itself, for it was Cocteau who said,” An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture.”
