Nataal Embraces Print with Its First Issue

Photographer – Julia Noni | Stylist – Naomi Miller | Model – Mame Thiane Camara

With a new switch to print format, Nataal Magazine embraces change. The London-based media company that aims to celebrate contemporary African fashion, visual creatives and the nuances of culture delivers this month two covers shot by photographer Julia Noni and Kristin-Lee Moolman. Inside the issue, you’ll find hair-raising beauty visuals from the hands of Cyndia Harvey and journey with model Mame Thiane Camara back to her native Dakar to see if her beach is better. Photographer Ronan Mckenzie captures the beauty of black hair while Rudi Geyser shows viewers a surreally displaced side of the Western Cape paired with South African designers.

The brainchild of actor and director Alassane Sy, creative director Sara Hemming and editorial director Helen Jennings, Nataal has been steadily building an avid following since its debut in 2015 and on the forefront of discovering new talent. In conjunction with Brooklyn creative space, Red Hook Labs, Nataal’s New African Photography exhibition entered its third year with much fanfare this past Friday. On view until Sunday, May 13th, this year’s show features an all-female line up of photography talent — Fatoumata Diabaté (Mali), Rahima Gambo (Nigeria), Keyezua (Angola), Alice Mann (South Africa), Ronan Mckenzie (UK) and Ruth Ossai (UK/Nigeria for a vivid exploration of representation, identity and the female form.

ANSINTH Is the New Fashion-Focused Title Dedicated to Creativity

In an industry rife with politics and competing demands, it can be liberating to find a magazine where the creativity takes center stage. ANSINTH, the new title from the team behind HERO Magazine and HEROINE Magazine, launches this week aiming to do exactly that. “We love the idea of making something that was totally new: raw, subversive, fashion-forward, bold and unafraid, experimental and niche, with lots of different, exciting young teams and designers for a much more hard-core fashion audience,” explains co-founder James West. To that end, photographer-stylist teams were given free rein to explore whatever they found interesting, from Kim Jakobsen To and Hamish Wirgman‘s study of twisted domesticity to Mat + Kat‘s sandy tanlines with Cece Liu. Co-founder Fabien Kruszelnicki spotlights the androgynous designs of LVMH Prize finalist Ludovic de Saint Sernin, while Davit Giorgadze and Erik Raynal offer plenty of skin. “We wanted a place for photographers and stylists to go full-tilt, try something totally new, feel uninhibited without having to conform to any specific agenda,” says West, and as the bounty on display in the début issue proves, they got exactly what they asked for.

This Season, Feminine Power Radiates from Rika Magazine


Photographer – Dario Catellani| Stylist – Alexandra Carl | Hair – Marki Shkreli | Makeup – Jen Myles | Model – Jean Campbell

Rika Magazine has the perfect gift for warm weather as their Spring/Summer issue has visuals that are pretty as a petal. Fashion director Alexandra Carl, Patti Wilson, and Lucinda Chambers make cover girls Jean Campbell, Vanessa Axente, and Saskia de Brauw bloom in florals looks from Celine, Jacquemus, Balenciaga, and Duro Olowu. Inside the issue the feminine mystique modernizes with in-depth interviews with notable stalwarts like professor and former model Ashley Mears on the culture of modelling in the wake of #MeToo; stylist-turned-architect Sophie Hicks on changing career paths and the challenges of a woman in a male-dominated industry; and a fashion editorial shot by Bibi Cornejo Borthwick with model Audra Avizienis that breaks out of the form-fitting status quo. With thoughtful contributions from Alasdair Mclellan, Josh Olins, Jack Davison, Simon Jacquemus, Junya Watanabe and more Rika brings a cerebral approach to the world of fashion and design.
