Matthew Williams—the creative mind behind the LVMH Prize-nominated label, ALYX—launched his Spring 2016 catalogue, Special Problems: Volume 2, today, as part of a collaboration with legendary photographer Nick Knight, and art director Paul Hetherington.

The catalogue explores the darker, more romantic side of the classic heroine trope, and features the gorgeous 19-year-old Molly Bair, with whom Williams is enamored: "After meeting Molly for the first time, I instantly loved her attitude and personality. The way she portrays herself on social media felt really honest and free – it was a breath of fresh air amongst so much falseness. She embodies the attitude of an ALYX girl."

If the moody images themselves aren't enough to make you swoon, each copy of ALYX's Volume 2 is printed in Verona, Italy, using both ink and screenprinting techniques on metallic, colored, pearlescent and tracing papers—making it the ultimate collector's item.

See the full catalogue through the curated film below:

Volume 2 is available at The Broken Arm, Tsutaya Daikanyama and on SHOWStudio.com.
