Imagery by Yelena Yemchuk
Ok so I know it's not cool to like the Smashing Pumpkins post Siamese Dream, but in the waning '90s I couldn't help but be enchanted with Adore. I blame Yelena Yemchuk. The imagery in the album itself, the videos, the whole gothic wilderness scene pre-empted FIT and Rick Owens (who owes D'Arcy some serious royalties) by a decade.
Now you can find Yelena shooting Cacharel ads and contributing to Lula, which fits her/their aesthetic perfectly.
