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.

Mikael Jansson takes a voyage upstate for a rustic editorial that pairs pieces from fashion’s most luxurious labels with a down home backdrop that speaks to America’s working class roots. Wearing Louis Vuitton and Prada to the local rail-station or back-alley isn’t an every day occurrence, but in the knowing hands of Karl Templer the pieces seem down to earth rather than lofty. As worn by the youthful cast led by Grace Hartzel, Tami Williams, Harleth Kuusik, Nastya Sten, Vanessa Moody, Waleska GorczevskiDani Witt and Julia Hafstrom these designer looks represent the dressed down uniform girls everywhere. With this story Interview Magazine adds another hit to this month’s impressive editorial lineup.

Marc Jacobs’ collaboration with Juergen Teller spanned decades and influenced countless others, but since last season the brand has moved in a different direction with slick new visuals by David Sims. For fall Sims translates Jacobs’ dreamy collection into a simple and striking image filled with pale colors and clean lines. Julia Nobis and Waleska Gorczevski feature in Sims’ pared down shot and exemplify the cool and calm spirit of the current Marc mood.
