Unconditional 5 – Cover 1: Spring/Summer 2017
Unconditional 5 focuses on the individuals who understand that to be free creatively, we need to shake off artifice and automatic ideas. Melanie Ward, who led the assault that originated to our current creative impulse, is this spirit incarnate. Marte Mei van Haaster is an artist, a model, and muse to many who is firmly in control of her own story, and a career that continues to take off. Far from the cliché of a super, Julia Stegner has never tried to be anything but real, despite the preternatural ability to walk on to a set and become anyone. Together with Crystal Moselle and Kelly Lee Owens, who are pushing boundaries in film and music, these individuals are catalysts for change. This issue is of Unconditional for the misfits and the iconoclasts.
On this cover of Unconditional 5: Julia Stegner
‘Julia defined a time and mood of a generation. She was the epitome of the fresh, smart German girl who made it. But she’s that and a lot more. In person, she’s genuine, quick and funny, but there’s something else. It’s that rare thing that this business never gets enough of and it’s everything we mean by Unconditional.’ (From: Instagram Unconditional)
