Scandinavia Nights

December 1st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Nothing is quite like the moment when a magazine finds its groove and Scandinavia SSAW Magazine certainly has with its S/S15 issue. The artistically minded glossy has always had impressive content, but the issue dubbed “July Nights” takes their darkly elegant sensibilities one step further with an issue that skews earthier and rawer than what we’ve seen from the publication before. Led by Creative director & Editor in Chief, Jakob Hysén Hedberg, the team creates a series of editorials that merge fashion, nature and the occasional nod to Ingmar Bergman into a delight for viewers. Boe Marion shoots model’s model, Kim Peers on the coasts of Bergman’s beloved Baltic island, Fårö the setting of classic films like Persona and Through a Glass Darkly. The cinematic influence infuses Marion’s story with an intensity and stripped down beauty that gives each image power. Elsewhere in the issue, Edita Vilkeviciute and Maja Salamon connect with nature via atmospheric stories that capitalize on each woman’s unique allure.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.
