MDX caught up with the editor for an outline of the new 25, including these exclusive teaser videos.
first one and how would you say it has evolved?
This is really my first issue of 25 since I took over. The vision of
25 is a very strong minded, intelligent, sensual woman. The content
will be beautiful visually with an erotic twist.
The magazine approaches sex in an imaginative way and is filled with
beautiful images, great fashion, and irreverent stories. 25’s
inaugural issue is dedicated to the talent of female photographers and
celebrating strong women.
The inspiration was the woman’s body, her sensuality and her
strength …. I’d also like to think of it as the new 69 – but on a
or a limit as to how far it could go with the idea of eroticism?
I think it came very naturally, the magazine has the erotic touch but
it’s all very sensual and within good taste.. the people that I have
chosen to be a part of the magazine have a very specific sensitivity
to beauty which is far from anything vulgar.
Not really, I still enjoy modeling and it is my main focus. I have a
even greater appreciation for the importance of team work..and how
important it is to choose the right girl for the right story.
I spoke with the photographers about the vision of the magazine, we
discussed the story and inspiration… from there, they had all the
6. When and where does the magazine launch and where will it be
available for sale?
The magazine launches in Cannes We are all very exited .. it will
be available online and at Colette, Corso Como 10, and a few
selected places in NY.
