Brave New (and Beautiful) World

March 9th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko


Olivia Jansing by Marcus Ohlsson & Andrew Logan by Philippe Vogelenzang

Beauty Papers is the two issue old publication with a predilection for all things beauty. That much can gathered from its title alone. But one look inside its sophomore release and it’s clear the brainchild of Maxine Leonard steers vehemently clear of any sort of prix fixe beauty others are serving. Beauty Papers is Maxine’s visual adage endeavoring to articulate a more modern language of makeup-ing. Inside is a cosmetic playground, the respective efforts of beauty veterans and photographers letting loose their explorative ideas of application, color and medium. We spoke to its editor in chief Maxine Leonard about the magazine and more, plus check out the preview of issue 1 “Plastics” below.

When did humor come into play for Beauty Papers or into your idea of beauty in general?
Humour like beauty is personal. Our approach is to hopefully inspire, the result in how this is viewed is left to the reader as to whether they sense or identify humour. I think it is emotive, however read. There is no beauty without emotion.

What was the most difficult part of conception for issue 1 (the second issue)?
Beauty Papers is at the start of its journey so we really don’t think in terms of ‘difficult’ because it is a very exciting time for us.

Why “Plastics”?
We chose ‘plastic’ because it defines the world we live in, and it has long been the byword for celebrity culture, the cult of plastic people-‘Fakeness’ is a look and lifestyle pursued by legions of women and men. And then there is the sheer joy of the material itself, the qualities of stretch, transformation and transparency. Plastic is defined by being easily shaped or moulded, which for us, is also a metaphor for how we change and mould ourselves to survive, fit in, and even succeed.

What were some conceptual guidelines and shoot dos and don’ts given out?
We explored the concept visually and culturally and created a collection of inspiration material that we shared with all our collaborators, they asked questions, observed and found their particular perspectives sometimes opening doors on less comfortable issues and ideas we encounter everyday. Plastic was the platform and from this dreams were created of exquisite fantastical extremes and contradictions. Without the dreams and dream makers where would we be? We have an open dialogue with all the artists that work with us but there are no do’s and don’ts. That is what is so exhilarating.

How has your own perspective of editorial beauty changed and what was missing that made you want to start the magazine?
On this journey there have been several occasions that have changed my perspective and made me reevaluate my approach. I interviewed Christiaan for issue 0 and the meeting was timely. He told me I would make mistakes and that it was never about agenda, it was about friends working together. I interviewed Serge Lutens and he told me not to lower my flag. Most importantly I met Valerie who restored my faith and reignited my belief and passion. Beauty Papers is about artists working together and inspiring each other. It is about community and creation, something we felt was lacking.

Office

December 8th, 2014 |Posted by holly

Great teams create great content, so when Creative director/Fashion Editor, Simon Rasmussen (BRIDGE Artists), Bergdorf Goodman’s creative director Jesper Damsgaard Lund, and makeup artist Zenia Jaeger came together to create brand new magazine, “Office,” our interest was piqued.

You will see some familiar names in the pages of the magazine (Jason Kibbler, Dario Catellani, Julia Noni, Marcelo Krasilcic, and Asger Carlsen to name a few) but you’ll also find some not-so-recognizable faces. According to the magazine, they’ve “enlisted a couple rappers, some artists and musicians, a convicted felon, a few party people, two carpenters, a DJ, a handful of strangers we spotted on the street, and a crew of our favorite stylists, designers and photographers to share their stories and contribute new work.”

Check out our exclusive preview of the magazine below and take note that Office will be available on newsstands this week. We highly recommend picking up a copy!

First Look: Lurve

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Lurve Magazine‘s next era kicks off with a stellar issue with a fresh perspective on fashion. Editor in chief Lyna V. Ahanda, new fashion director Moreno Galatà and fashion editor Alessandra Conti create an issue focused on a modern interpretation of 90s style fashion photography. Bringing all the raw energy and individualism that defined the 90s aesthetic back into the mix is an inspired move and one that makes each editorial feel vital.

The issue’s six covers take the theme head on with a diverse lineup of models & photogs; reportage photographer Olivia Arthur shoots model Adwoa Aboah in Louis Vuitton; while Lily McMenamy sports Céline in a stylized shot by Sonia Sieff. Queen of cool Caroline de Maigret shows another side in an elegant image by Alessio BolzoniRobbie McKinnon sports a brush and stacks of vinyl in his cheeky cover by Edmund Aves. The always chic Elisa Sednaoui is serene in Prada in her cover by Laurence Ellis (Visual Artist UK ) and Hanne Gaby Odiele delights in a striking image by Dario Catellani (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)

Inside the content is every bit as compelling as the covers, with an array of contributors providing exciting new edits that adhere to that avant garde 90s spirit. Each story is special in its own way, but famed street photographer Nick Turpin providing his first fashion work, shooting Neelam Johal in a museum setting is a bonafide moment.
