RUSSH Goes Abroad

August 4th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The always paradisal Russh Magazine relays their Aussie bliss for the rest of us in “The Global Issue”. A message that is gladly received, especially with the sublime, local muse Gemma Ward fronting the issue splendent in a pastel sundown – photographed by Stephen Ward. Prefacing the editorials, editor in chief Jess Blanch hones in on the issue’s message, “Today our universe seems bigger and more giant than ever and yet somehow we’re now all closer than we ever thought possible … Geography is irrelevant. ‘Home’, an adaptable notion. And suddenly we have the power to be everywhere and yet nowhere, at once.” Destinations abound and abroad, the unmistakable streets of Los Angeles serve as a tinsel backdrop for Blair Getz Mezibov‘s editorial with up-and-comer Chloe Wheatcroft. Or travel to the idyllic Swiss Alps and indulge in the beautiful Laura Kampman photographed by Rahel Weiss. This issue also features Russh’s first ever “Men’s Special” with 48 pages of men’s stories like Reuben Ramacher photographed as a man about town by Nick Hudson and styled by Bridie Gilbert. Finally, pristine is the key word for the beauty story with Katryn Kruger, photographed by Matthew Sprout and teamed by Dale Delaporte and Nina Park, all working finely tuned within the realm of shadows and contrast. The rest of the wanderlust inducing stories can be seen in The “Global” issue when it hits stands August 6th.

Bare Essentials

June 8th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Russh magazine’s summer issue “Just As You Are” beauty is stripped down it its bare essentials: “Everyone agrees real beauty is the point where you decide to go with what you’ve got,” opens Editor in Chief Jess Blanch. Who better to encapsulate the mag’s motif than Sam Rollinson who naturally gleams on the cover simply photographed by Ward Ivan Rafik. Nastya Sten works gold and purple glitter paint ever so slightly in the beauty story also shot by Rafik with makeup artfully applied in shapes by Stevie Huynh with slick wettish hair by Brian Buenaventura. A second beauty story (this is the beauty issue after all) by James Nelson and Makeup artist Victoria Baron takes a more modest approach with simple rouge accents on lovely Eilika Meckbach. Have a look at the exclusive preview below and see the entire issue on stands June 11th.

Finding Utopia

April 6th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

“We may never live in perfect harmony. Utopia isn’t really ever found. But today, by believing in it, we just may be able to make the mundane sublime,” starts the Find Utopia issue of Russh #63. Sublime being a good word to describe the carefree content and rosy palettes. On the cover, mother of three and mega-model Vivien Solari is the image of serenity by Johan Sandberg (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY) appearing perfectly blushed and ruddy by Kathy le Sant.  Stefan Heinrichs captures a wispy-haired Magdalena Jasek encapsulating the spirited attitude of springtime youth. For the lens of Emma Tempest (Jed Root), Helena Severin and Farez Brahmi get intimate as dusk approaches. In The Lost Paradise series James Nelson breathes new life into seventies psychedelia exploring in painted strokes of peachy pastels and violets against textured terrains.

Find your own Utopia April 9th when Russh Magazine #63 will be on stands!

First Look : W Korea’s K-Fashion

August 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Phoebe Philo’s ladylike yet casual take on fall fashion is front & center on W Korea’s chic September cover starring Georgia May Jagger. Shot by Maciek Kobielski with fashion director Yoo Kyung Choi and styled by Ethel Park the cover & corresponding editorial offer a stripped down version of chic that juxtaposes ultra-luxury pieces with a gritty backdrop. As always Georgia May is an appealing presence, radiating an easy-going sensuality with her loose waves and pouty lips. Clad in Philo’s Céline knits, oversized coats and shiny platforms Jagger is the ultimate cool girl and completely in line with the look of the moment. September editions are all about cementing the year’s sartorial viewpoint and the thrilling headline “this is K-Fashion” promises that there are even more fashion moments within the issue’s pages.

Here’s to all the dreamers! Santiago & Mauricio Sierra (Cadence New York) create an otherworldly portrait of modern youth for Love Magazine with their trippy film ‘Dreamers’ starring Natalie Westling, Abiah Hostvedt, Pauline Hoarau, Gabriel Marques and Chris Davis (casting by Larissa Gunn). The eclectic cast skateboards and glides through a surreal suburban landscape complete with McDonalds golden arches looming in the distance. As the models move through the scene a haunting rendition of ‘Mad World’ plays in the background, highlighting the familiar yet slightly off-kilter vibe of the whole clip.

See the video on Love and a teaser below
