Behind the Scenes of the Posternaks’s Romp in Japan for Mansur Gavriel

From the islands of Naoshima and Teshima to the city of Gifu, where they found the pastel-colored utopia Yoro Park, a theme park also known as the Site of Reversible Destiny, Tanya and Zhenya Posternak roamed Japan earlier this year to scout out the perfect locations to shoot Mansur Gavriel’s debut ready-to-wear collection, whose bold colors, rich textures, and architectural lines are carried out across a spread of wool, camel, cashmere, and mohair outerwear and knits. Of course, along the way, the twins also made some discoveries—including that there are “excellent” hand rolls at Japanese 7-Elevens—and made sure to explore the markets, too. Go behind the scenes of their shoot for the official campaign, here.
