First Look: SSAW Finland

May 11th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

SSAW Magazine (Finland), the London and Helsinki-based fashion magazine has released their latest bi-annual issue and the focus is on lucky number 7. With seven in-depth interviews with the buzziest design houses of the present – Julien Dossena, Jacquemus, Thomas Tait, Craig Green, Vetements, Satu Maaranen and Hood by Air, the publication’s biggest issue yet is more interested in the essence of now. Seven editorials follow featuring faces like Lindsey Wixson shot by Gia Coppola and styled by Heathermary Jackson looking delightfully fresh-faced, Maria Veranen shot by Chris Vidal Tenomaa in pieces that resemble wearable art, and 90s legend Rosemary Ferguson on the cover by photographer Drew Jarrett. The raw curation of the images translates remarkably for the viewing pleasure with colorful, dynamic imagery.

Check out our exclusive preview of the issue below.

Optology Issue #3

July 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

When Jonathan Arundel launched his photography and fashion journal Optology Magazine last year, he quickly established a high standard for the publication’s content and design, with rich, gorgeous stories and a sui generis, pared-down aesthetic. The latest issue, the third, is no different, starting from the charming portrait of a smiling Ben Allen that graces the glowing yellow cover. The features within hew to the quiet vision of the magazine, which bills itself as “dedicated to showcasing the finest photography and styling talent.” The cover story within, shot by Harry Carr with styling by Hannah Elwell, captures a new maturity in the young Allen, while Elliot Vulliod headlines his own story and up-and-comers like Dylan Fosket and Karlis Adlers are featured as well. Thomas Giddings gives us a pensive feature starring Andreas Lindquist with styling by Andreas Kokkino, with a gentle mood that carries over into Fanny Latour-Lambert (Walter Schupfer Management)’s images (styling by Optology’s fashion director Madeleine Østlie), which offer hushed slices of thoughtful youth at play.
