Italian Romance: Grey Mag’s 6 Covers

July 27th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The Italian biannual Grey Magazine releases issue I.IV with 6 different lush covers. Across the board, poetic covers for the hardbound publication are abound with floral motifs. Of the the painterly covers, there’s Astrid Sterner’s classical rendition of model Marina Perez. Styling in mixed patterns by Valentina Ilardi Martin, Marina finds the harmony with simple classic poses.  The cover with Celia Becker, photographed by Spencer Ostrander continues the motifs of romance with beautiful botanics and a rosy red lip, styled with more patterned panache again by Martin. Other covers evoke a certain amount of sentimentality, conjuring new images that read from another period–antique and rich, like Peppe Tortora’s polaroids of newface Daria Modica Amore. See all six covers exclusively here on before Grey I.IV hits stands in the next few days. Or get it directly at

Grey Days

February 18th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The always impressive Grey Magazine never fails to delight with its unique selection of haute imagery and the latest issue looks especially promising. With a wide range of cover stars and images filled with drama, the magazine certainly promises to be exciting. With so many cover options it is hard to pick a favorite; we’re especially drawn to the beautifully done images of models and their children, but the compelling chemistry in the couple covers is hard to ignore – which cover stands out to you?

Blast from the Past: Mirabella

January 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The news is always going on about the death of print, but what happens when a familiar favorite magazine really does go away forever? Fans of 90s fashion will fondly remember Mirabella, sitting on the newsstand alongside issues of Elle, Bazaar and Vogue. From 1989 to 2000 the magazine founded by  fashion fixture and former editor -in -chief of American Vogue, Grace Mirabella offered up a no-nonsense take on fashion. Appealing to women who valued not only style, but substance the magazine was chock full of the era’s trademarks: supermodels, shoulder pads and colorful imagery filled with designs from the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, and Helmut Lang.

Even though the days of Mirabella have long since passed, time hasn’t stripped the publication of its charms. Looking back there are a great many aspects of Mirabella that still feel contemporary: Sarah Moon’s haunting photography is just as relevant today as it was nearly two decades ago (check the latest Valentino campaign if you need proof) and Christy Turlington – a perennial Mirabella fave – is still one of the industry’s great beauties. Today’s obsession with model-style seems foreshadowed by Mirabella’s sleek Glen Luchford editorial styled by none other than Kate Moss and it’s hard to think of a glossy that wouldn’t jump at the chance to publish a feature along these lines today. Styles may come and go but Ines de la Fressange still turns heads as trendsetter for the ages and Regan Cameron’s images of the legendary French muse are an enduring delight.
