Sexy Seniors Star in Bernhard Willhelm’s Spring Lookbook

Save for Lanvin, whose recent campaign star was an 82 year-old woman, fashion brands rarely depict an over-60 model even though smarties like Advanced Style already know that personal taste only gets better with age. OG design eccentric Bernard Willhelm is following in Lavin’s suit and championing the underrepresented demographic, and taking it further by styling them like 19-year old party kids in his shredded, scissors-printed spring collection. Wilhelm didn’t offer any backstory regarding his casting choice but he doesn’t really need to: the models perfectly capture his kooky fashion game.

  1. Like I heard Machine Gun Kelly was pissed you never published an article about him. Im from Cincinnati, OH. Like … all I have to say is.

    Im the first of two firsts and that had me first. Im like ain no magazine I need to be in to be me. Im like ain no sea I need to swim in to be free. Im like ain no reader I need to read about me to be me. Im like Cincinnati is the home of the heartland where the poets roam free. Its like we all walking around being exactly who we need to be. Im like ain no one had it harder than me as I been through 18 psychiatric hospitalizations but I still maintain and keep sane and proclaim that I am game for whatever life throws at me. Its like Kells could have gone to college but he would rather drink beer than attain knowledge. So I did the letter and climbed the ladder of insight and now I fight with the demos that glow so bright late in the depths of the night and then I wake up in the morning and get to ignoring the fact that most of my city thinks I am crazy but maybe its just that my family hates me.

    I could be the MC that drops poetry on audiences from like the four story balcony and I would grab the mic and drop fluency on the pedigree and inspire a couple other people to get their university degree because University happened to me and quite honestly, ain nothing stopping me from being me and dropping verses from like the heights of knowledge like I am supposed to do, B.
