Exclusive: Margaret Zhang’s Latest Shoot Is REALLY Different

Photographer, stylist, and writer Margaret Zhang does it all, and she does it well—and her latest campaign with Mon Purse is no different. Jodi Anasta has teamed up with the handbag label to design a capsule collection of six customisable bags, and with Zhang behind the lens and acting as creative consultant, the results are magic.

The collection lands on April 20, but we’ve been given an exclusive sneak peek at the campaign Polaroid shots. This vibe is SO different to the supremely sleek and polished imagery we’re used to seeing from Zhang—and we’re obsessed.

Keep scrolling to see a sneak peek of the collection and read our interview with Jodi about personalisation and her favourite handbag.
