Oversized and gorgeous, the impressive newsprint mag The Last Magazine falls in the higher-order ranks of fashion & art publications for its cultural savviness, industry foresight and beautiful photography. Fall’s issue 15 being no different–well, except it’s nearly entirely photography-free. One of the few photos has tradition meeting the nontraditional as long time Last-muse and oft coverstar Daria Werbowy‘s likeness fronts the mag. Swedish artist Anders Krisár casts the super’s most-recognizable face to create the flesh-toned visage with incredible artistry. As for the approach, editor and chief Magnus Berger explains, “It felt like now, this issue, was the right time to do things a bit differently. As much as we love photography, it’s just one out of many types of media that can be used to depict reality or fantasy, or tell a story.” That said, Sean Ryan “badly draws” a perfectly casted roster of hard-to-get top models from Lara Stone to Karlie Kloss all dressed up in fall’s best denims. Mats Gustafson and Alastair McKimm team up to present a selection of fashion’s favorite silhouettes while rising stars Lola Kirke and Julia Karner both get especially expressive renders. See an exclusive preview of the extra-artsy issue before it hits stands Tuesday.
