The intricate artistry of Rei Kawakubo‘s designs for Comme des Garçons is brought to life in the pages of T Magazine with an evocative cover story by Paolo Roversi. The pictures shot in Roversi’s signature style and accented with special face painting and hair by Julien d’Ys, serve as a strong visual counterpoint to Suzy Menkes‘s interview with the groundbreaking designer. models Maja SalamonElodia Prieto and Ine Neefs are transformed completely in this striking set of images.

New Beauty Bregje: The Ones to Watch

The First, Daria by Camilla Akrans on the cover: The Fashion Spot

**JULY VOGUE ITALIA UPDATE**
Speaking of the Fashion Spot; industry insider codenamed Northern Star reports about the All Black issue of Vogue Italia: “Was just checking through some sales figures on last months mags at work and this issue’s net sale figures were up some 1000% on the June issue. Which is pretty much astonishing for a foreign fashion magazine in the North of England. Just shows what the powers of media and word of mouth can do for a product which in my opinion deserved to be so successful.” We say, WORD!
