Hands that have lived: Karen Walker & Advanced Style collaborate
My 52-year-old hands have their fair share of wrinkles, veins and age spots. I know I probably should have taken more care of them (years of cycling without sun screen hasn’t helped) but they are my hands and they work. And that’s what they look like. And the latest Karen Walker jewellery campaign shot by Ari Seth Cohen shows us what 93 and 78-year-old hands look like. Beautiful.
The Magic Hands campaign features Advanced Stylistas: Phyllis Sues, a 93-year-old former Ballet Russes star turned fashion designer and yoga fanatic, and actor, model and 78-year-old great grandmother Roberta Haze. The manicures, the jewellery and the styling are all magic.
In 2013, Karen Walker collaborated with Ari Seth Cohen and some of his Advanced Style Stars on a sunglasses campaign and now the two are showing jewellery in a wonderful way. ‘Hands can be every bit as expressive as faces,’ says Walker. ‘These Magic Hands speak of a life well-lived and they absolutely have their own stories to tell.’
