Panos Yiapanis is a Cypriot fashion editor and stylist who I decided to research after I saw a photo of him on Jak + Jil. He's styled all of the Givenchy menswear advertisements since 2007, as well as the Rick Owens fashion shows since 2002. He also directed the amazing Tilda Swinton shoot for the SS09 edition of Another Magazine (I am obsessed with Tilda).

Even when working with Chanel haute couture, his grungy, dark style comes through as strongly as if he were dressing Rick Owens on halloween. Until recently I haven't really thought a huge amount about the stylists collaborating with my favourite designers and photographers, but this changes everything!
