& Other Stories is the latest label to embrace the beauty of the transgender community in its latest campaign, which not only features transgender people but was also put together by a transgender creative team. Hari Nef and Valentijn De Hingh were photographed for the Amos Mac-shot campaign featuring the retailer’s forthcoming athletic-inspired collection.
De Hingh, who has done her fair share of shoots, says that working with a transgender team was truly a rewarding experience. “That’s something I haven’t experienced with other shoots, per se, where I’ve worked with other teams, other models, multiple girl stories, where you work with each other professionally and you like each other and have good conversation, but it’s not the same thing as working with an all-trans team.” The connection when you’re around people just like you, who know what your life is like – that is pretty powerful.
De Hingh and Nef pose in metallic hoodie windbreakers, T-shirts, comfy-looking trousers and skirts and more. The collection evokes a certain kind of athletic minimalism (save for the eye-popping metallics) giving us clean and modern sporty options for the season.
The collection is expected to hit stores August 20.
