Monrowe Magazine introduces its first issue “Evolution” chronicling a certain and beautiful bygone sentiment, like the antiquity of good penmanship, with editor Ricky Kim ruminating over timelessness, an answer to button-down minimalism and his own longing for substance. “The best art gives us a feeling to which we have no words…for me, personally, cinema has been the most powerful,” says Kim, a former photography art director with Ralph Lauren. The predominately black and white pages infuse that savor of cinema onto its silvery pages. The cover story shot by Fanny Latour-Lambert musters nostalgia and the perennial cool of James Dean. Glen Luchford’s masterfully filmic Prada 1997 campaigns featuring Amber Valletta are resurrected and still read as contemporary and sensory-charged as ever embracing silver-screen virtues.
By keeping storytelling at the forefront, photographers like Robert Nethery, Chantelle Dosser and Annelise Phillips mull over fashion with dreamy cinematic images. Lindsey Hornyak styles contemplatively synthesizing the new and old while Priscilla Polley keeps thing feeling traditional such as in “The Good Place” with Alina Krasina and Alexandra Titarenko wearing A.P.C., Creatures of Comfort and Stella Mcartney. Iconic art photographer Ralph Gibson‘s narrative body of work is featured in a retrospective as well as an interview with model/legend Kim Williams wearing Issey Miyake.
