“We are not just one voice. We are many. It doesn’t matter how we express ourselves. Just that we do.” Jonas HUCKSTORF c/o KLAUS STIEGEMEYER photographed for the label YOUNG POETS SOCIETY with Alex Mariah Peter, the 2021 winner of the 16th season of Germany’s Next Topmodel, making her the first transsexual winner of the show. Alex Mariah Peter : “@youngpoetssociety believes that everyone is a modern-day poet. So... Reflecting is my poetry. What’s yours?”
Known for its leather jackets and rock-inspired streetwear looks, Düsseldorf-based label TIGHA, founded in 2009 by graduate engineer for textile management, Asem Chaudhary, has now become the YOUNG POETS SOCIETY. The re-branding step is aimed at reaching new target groups and working closer to trends.
“Driven by the idea that modern poets are no longer limited to words but express themselves in digital images, with dance or even spray paint, and thus convey a universal beauty, Young Poets Society doesn’t limit its designs to regular fashion but is constantly in search of new impressions and inspiration.” goes the credo of YOUNG POETS SOCIETY, aka YPS.
For the upcoming Fall/Winter 2021/22 collection, the Young Poets Society relies on retro styles and grunge elements, loose cuts with tie-dye and color gradient elements for a casual and relaxed layering look. GoSee : yps.store & kstiegemeyer.de
