Russh’s “Art of Fun” Combats Fall Woes

September 28th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Russh‘s latest October/November issue has the magazine conceptualizing an especially Australian ethos, looking all laid-back exploring “The Art of Fun”. Cover star Lara Stone takes readers on a retro-inspired joy ride evoking a certain muscle car cool, photographed by Emma Tempest and styled in the latest flame-embroidered, throwback threads by Verity Parker. Sam Hendel photographs Cate Underwood as a free-spirit, lush in an idyllic outdoors scene with a dash of glitter, while James Nelson lenses two stories: One where spontaneity finds Georgia Hilmer and Emma Oak in the spray of a hydrant, with half-on half-off fall styling by Ilona Hamer, and the other, a beauty editorial with team Jenny Kim and Laura Stiassni, who have Anya Lyagoshina looking glowing enough to combat any autumn woes. See the exclusive preview below and purchase it here.

First Looks: The Last Magazine No. 15

September 11th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

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.

The Company You Keep

In celebration of i-D Magazine’s 35th birthday Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) shoots a league of winking models, 18 to be exact, from the industry’s North Stars like Kate Moss, Malgosia BelaLara Stone and newly minted super Jourdan Dunn to a crop of next of kin muses like Anna Ewers, Natalie Westling and Grace Hartzel. The British photographer who is known for his pared down approach had his career launched by the iconic publication after his work caught the eye of stylist Simon Foxton. Since then he’s been part of the I-D family, so having him shoot the entire summer issue front to back seems a befitting concept. Surely fans of Alasdair McLellan’s work are already drooling.
