Sanne Jackson Serves 80s Glamour in New Season Armani


— October 25, 2020 —

If you could use some good old-fashioned nostalgia right now (and let’s be honest, who couldn’t) then you’ve come to the right place. Sit back and relax as these images of Sanne Jackson transport you back in time to the year 1983: Scarface just hit cinemas and David Bowie’s Let’s Dance album is topping the charts. 

Looking at these images, you’d be forgiven for mistaking the young girl from Toowoomba for a member of The Runaways. After only a few years in the modelling biz, Sanne can pull of emerald velvet pants and a houndstooth cape with the swagger of a glam rock superstar. 

We met Sanne back in 2018, when we shot her first ever editorial in Sydney’s Centennial Park. Since then, her modelling career has taken her to Berlin, Auckland and, as soon as she can, Sanne plans to jet off to London to live out her full David Bowie fantasy.

Before she leaves us again, we asked her to bring Emporio Armani's ultra-opulent FW20 collection to life and she did not disappoint. Put on some Bowie, pump up your shoulder pads and enjoy the show!

Where are you from and where are you based right now?
I was born in Toowoomba, QLD, now I'm living in the Northern Beaches, Sydney.

What’s the coolest thing to have happened to you since we first met in 2018?
I was very lucky to get to go to Germany for work at the start of the year just before the whole world went into lockdown, pretty perfect timing!

What’s been the most rewarding part of your work? 
Being able to travel overseas and even go to different parts of Australia.

What are some easy ways you spark joy in your life on a daily basis?
My self-care routine brings so much joy into my day. I also love to make a delicious, healthy meal. Food always makes me happy and just being out in nature on a bush walk with my doggos.

Who or what is most important to you in life? 
My family and friends because I know they will be by my side no matter what. Such a lovely bunch of humans, I couldn't be any happier with the people that are closest to me!

What are you most excited for in 2021?
It's really hard to tell what next year has planned. This year has been a bit unusual. Hopefully I will be going over to London at some point next year and also pretty excited for this year to be over!

What song comes to mind when you think of Armani’s FW20 collection?
I just watched the ‘U Got The Look’ video by Prince and if these clothes could be in any song it would be that one!

And which film?
I get a lot of 80s vibes from this collection. I'm not sure which film exactly, but definitely feels like a glam 80s movie with all the patterns and fabrics!

If COVID-19 didn’t exist and you could wear these looks anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I would loovve to rock the green velvet suit in Paris with my girlfriends wearing the other looks, just walking around then going to some fancy party because I've always wanted to wear a suit at a party. That suit is what dreams are made of!
