The Russh perspective is all about a certain kind of girl; youthful, instinctively cool and the type to wear her heart on her sleeve rather than a label. The April/May issue focuses on staying true to your passions while keeping it real and features a series of women who fit right in with the mag’s artsy-chic ethos. Jane Birkin, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and actress Clémence Poesy could all be considered Russh girls and the insightful interviews of each are a real treat.
Editorially the issue takes its cues from the women who inspired it with a series of dreamy editorials that feel natural and unfussy. Whether it is Josefien Rodermans sipping a milkshake or Jess Gold lounging in the season’s knitwear, these stories look like they could be pulled from real life. Even the stark studio shoot with Jessica Miller, doesn’t feel forced or unnatural.
