WE'RE INTO: CORINNE DAY AT GIMPEL FILS

If anyone deserves to be called the face of the 90s it’s Kate Moss. Waifish and natural-faced — sprinklings of freckles visible on her nose and cheeks — Moss was a new kind of fashion heroin(e) more likely to be found backstage at a Jesus and Mary Chain concert than dinnering with captains of industry. In 1990, model turned photographer Corinne Day discovered fourteen-year-old Moss and put her on the cover of revolutionary Brit youth culture mag The Face; launching two careers that would come to define an entire era. In her signature pared-down style, Day captured a young, au natural, Moss gallivanting in the surf wearing an Indian headdress and daisy chain necklace, freckles blazing, hair braided flower-child style. By eschewing over-styling and heavy lights in favor of the natural and sometimes dirty, Day ushered in a new, candid sensibility that would take over the world of fashion: namely, grunge. Tragically Day passed away last year after a long battle with cancer, but her legacy still continues to unfurl. Currently at London’s Gimpel Fils gallery is the exhibition “Heaven is Real” featuring Day’s personal and The Face work from the early 90s. Just as Moss was the face of the 1990s, Days’ was a definitive lens through which the 90s was filtered.
