The gang over at Marfamily casually scripted a cover-to-cover whodunnit for their latest issue

“Film your murders like love scenes, and film your love scenes like murders,” Hitchcock famously said, and for Marfamily‘s latest issue, the team at the biannual magazine decided to film their murders like fashion shoots, and film their fashion shoots like murders. It’s a cover-to-cover whodunnit, entitled, “The Front Row Murders”––naturally! since they’re naturally-not-normal anyway. The masterminds behind such a dizzying (creative) direction should be named: editor-in-chief Alexandra Gordienko, fashion editors Omaima Salem, Linda Engelhardt, Danny Reed and for this narrative-laden issue, features editor Ross Astor became director and storyteller. Lately, horror seems to hold a special place in the heart of fashion evidenced by all the genre references like Prada and their Frankenstein-themed collection; murmurs of Jaws, The Shining, Carrie and more were part of Raf’s Calvin Klein motif; and the remake of Suspiria boasted a cast full of fashion darlings. Still, we haven’t seen a magazine that looks like this before. Gordienko tells us, “Taking the structure of a classic crime thriller, MARFAMILY #4 has become a novella under the name of The Front Row Murders, the narrative of which is drawn along by every piece of text and imagery contained within its pages.” On top of all that’s inside Béatrice Dalle, Anne Hathaway, Alek Wek, Lindsey Wixson, Mariam de Vinzelle, Eniko Mihalik and Lily McMenamy serve as the leading lady cover stars. We preview pieces of the puzzle that unravel all issue long below.

Giovanni counts down his Vogue Italia departure with help from Karim Sadli and Rianne Van Rompaey

It’s T-minus 2 issues for Giovanni Bianco, as news broke late March that the June 2019 Vogue Italia issue would be the creative director’s last. How does one spend their last days? Well, Bianco handed the cover spot to Karim Sadli, a frequent contributor, but not-yet-until-now frontman for the elite glossy. Considering Rianne Van Rompaey and Sadli go way back (having shot together since 2014), as does the Dutch model with Vogue Italia covers (this adds a 5th to her collection), it was a cover a long time in the making. Excuse us––3 covers a long time in the making. For it, they take the team oceanside: a shock of red tresses, loads of Chanel and enough pearls to sink Rianne should she decide to take a dip. Adding, Van Rompaey is unsinkable, with four stellar single girl covers this year already.

Team Re-Edition releases pages and pages from issue 11, we examine

With its latest, Re-Edition Magazine celebrates its 11th birthday––or 4 in human years as ink hit the page for the first time in 2015. That was then and this is now: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shoot for the publication for the first time; a Burberry portfolio where Riccardo Tisci gets the Juergen Teller treatment, in that Eva Herzigova needs not do much to be great; speaking of models that add to a multigenerational mix, Milla Jovovich faces a Talia Chetrit cover (got the team back together!). On the multi-covers, not one red head, but three––Sara Grace Wallerstedt, Edwina Preston and Rianne Van Rompaey. All that and a red-dressed, red-lipped cover by Chinese photorapher Feng Li who you are going to see more of soon. There’s camp, there’s cool, there’s Collier Schorr (of course) and there’s even fire! Here’s a sampling of the contributor-licious issue.

What’s not to LOVE? Katie Grand slips us pages from her latest issue, guest-edited by Harriet Verney

Love Magazine came out today globally–yes, it’s fashion week, but stop to smell the ink, will you!–editor-in-chief Katie Grand put some good stuff in this issue (which was guest-edited by the multi-dimensional Harriet Verney). Especially speaking of London-photographer Lynette Garland’s black-and-white editorial STROP that sort of shoulders its way out of the pages to the visual forefront. Garland has popped up before as Love contributor “Basically, I was taking pictures on my iPhone backstage at Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu shows while I was assisting Katie [Grand] and I started posting them on Instagram I guess they were different to other photographers’ backstage photos in that I tend to home in on certain details. It might be the nape of a model’s neck or even the heel of a shoe. Other times, it’s just trying to capture candid moments that are natural – a girl tying her shoe laces or pulling a dress over her head,” the photographer tells the magazine of her start in an interview with her husband Sean O’Hagan.
