“What would Marilyn Monroe be like today if her career had taken off in 2018? As a vulnerable and sensitive actress prone to anxiety and depression, would today’s hyper-connected world hinder or accelerate the iconic movie star’s career? We imagine what that might look like, told through a story featuring the SS18 Haute Couture collections.” – Excerpt from SORBET. The Unapologetic Issue.
