Kendall Jenner is chopped, mashed up and pieced back together by fashion anarchist Abraham for this issue’s cover. The banned-from-Instagram, New York-based artist splices Céline and Moschino adverts with goth, fetish and bondage imagery, creating brilliantly nasty photo collages – which both brands and his victims (like Cara D and Riccardo T) love. He’s gained notoriety – and even a dose of controversy – for “borrowing” Richard Prince’s appropriation of a photo of an underage Brooke Shields. Is nothing sacred? No, and in @BessNYC4’s world, that’s cause for celebration.
