First Look: Scandinavia SSAW

Always pristine. Always poetic. Scandinavia SSAW Magazine finds inspiration from the natural world for its 11th issue, “Realness”. The publication’s signature–fresh, honest and reverential visuals–are abundant. As are new and old contributors. Boo George, Maciek Kobielski, Marcus Ohlsson, Benny Horne, Philip Messmann and more take pause to give idyllic portrayals of extraordinary beauties like Vivien Solari, Vanessa Axente, Lou Schoof, Hedvig Palm and Harleth Kuusik. “Tales About Our Nature” inscribed on the cover hints that this is more about a way of living than it is fashion.

Alternative Modernity

Critical reflections are revealed in the latest issue of Schön Magazine. Issue 32 stars the incredible Ajak Deng, photographed by Alexander Saladrigas, whose cover story partakes in a study of fluid body motions and surreal reverie. Ordering in the likes of Jason Wu, Jil Sander, Rick Owens, and Versace, stylists Jimi Urquiaga and Noah Diaz pair up to accentuate Ajak’s gracile form. Opposite of this dreamlike wonder, Oskar Gyllenswärd sees a new way to convey patriotism with fashions chosen by Marianna Frannais, featuring British beauty India Tuersley. The picture of strength and liberty, hair and makeup gurus Brady Lea and Amy Conley refresh an old-time allure with golden ringlets and graphically sketched eyes in the midst of global political frustration. Last but certainly not least, extraordinaire Lauren Wasser is brilliantly captured by Brian Ziff and tells-all on finding inspiration after being afflicted with toxic shock syndrome.

A Woman’s World

As women worldwide fight against patriarchal norms, Zoo Magazine proclaims its editorial support for feminine pride. The magazine enlists Hot Lister Isabella Emmack, photographed by Bryan Adams, and Top 50 ranker Maartje Verhoef, shot by Hugh Lippe, to make the message clear. Both models are styled in a series of patriotic looks with fashionable references alluding as far back to the Roman Empire all summoned by venerable fashion director, Joanne Blades. Subversive designers Alexander Wang, Maison Martin Margiela, Proenza Schouler, Sacai, and Stella McCartney all lend killer looks to the protest. Hairstylist Joey George and makeup artisan Makky tease slightly Isabella’s natural tomboy personality while Maarte gets transformed with a graphic cut that pairs smartly with Ozzy Salvatierra‘s agenda-pushing eyebrow treatment.

Adventure Time

There is a whole wide world to explore in the latest issue of At Large Magazine, the men’s magazine that celebrates discovery and the excitement of the new and unknown. With cover subjects ranging from rising Australian actor Brenton Thwaites to musicians Soko and Ben Gregory, the publication shines a spotlight on those who are in constant search of something different. In the spirit of adventure, James Macari share a portfolio on profession bull riding while Jimmy Chin explores untethered rock climbing and Matthew Porter documents the wilds of the Galapagos. Tom Sloan and Julie Ragolia find youth and energy in a group of exciting new musical and acting talents, while Peter Huynh and Paul Sinclaire offer up a romantic underwater world. On the fashion front, Randall Mesdon and Bill Mullen’s jewelry story comes in crisp, stripped-back black-and-white and Rob Kulisek and Sinclaire riff on technology, futurism, and video games in their vibrant feature.
