Acne Paper x Roe Ethridge

Karlie Kloss Mixes Business and Pleasure in a Monochrome Manhattan

Photographer Roe Ethridge teams up with Missouri-born model Karlie Kloss to merge the charm of Breakfast at Tiffany’s with the attitude of Working Girl in this Acne Paper preview.

Represented by Gagosian Gallery and having exhibited at New York's Museum of Modern Art, Ethridge is known for his ability to upset conventional archetypes.
