Backstage at ModaLisboa, spring 2015

It was a good day to be backstage. For one, Nuno Gama’s epic closing show was to include 80 male models, most of whom were milling about waiting for their call time. I was hardly going to complain about that. Secondly, Valentim Quaresma’s unique creations – intricate pieces of body jewellery made from clips and skulls and other curiosities – were being adorned onto bodies…

Like a rising star, she’s ready to sparkle

It doesn’t really matter that the sky surrounding her is of the warmest shades of blue and not at all moody and dark, because she’s ready to sparkle anyway. With gold, glittery eyes and dresses drowned in a sea of sequins, with garments bearing the richest textures and her hair caught dancing in the wind, Anna Gorojankina photographed by Luiza Lehtinen is like a phoenix meant…

Mr Kate “The Elsie” collection look book

Rather than sticking purely to the mystical influences defining fall 2014’s jewellery trends, designer Kate Albrecht went all the way back to the Edwardian period for her latest collection. Inspired by Lily Elsie, an Edwardian era actress, the collection features matte metals alongside sparkling crystals. One particularly unusual piece is an eye patch that can also be worn as a headpiece or necklace.

She believes in silver linings

Maybe it’s because she appears to have been traveling all across the universe, sporting visible marks that speak aloud about another kind of reality, or perhaps it’s because she appears to belong to another dimension all together, but something about Melissa Tan’s silver-stained beauty screams otherworldly, and in more ways than the obvious. Being photographed in timeless black and white by JC adds to the…

Red lips, fair skin, perfectly nude (NSFW)

A Marilyn Monroe kind of beauty, but a little rougher around the edges; with her skin fair, her hair blonde and her lips the perfect red, Madeleine doesn’t mind bearing it all in front of the camera. Because when you’re gifted with a body of such classic proportions, and a glow that seems to be radiating from within, the lights, camera and action can only…

Gypsum look book does classroom chic

Smoking in the toilets, thigh high socks, cable knit hotpants and plenty of attitude: Gypsum channels school girl chic with some good-girls-gone-bad looks. \Photographed by Derren Versoza, the look book features plenty of plaid alongside some cropped sweaters and relaxed silhouettes.

Hotpants + boots: things best left to models?

I’d love to sit here and tell you that absolutely anyone can pull off a tiny pair of denim hotpants worn in tandem with thigh high boots. But some combinations are better left grounded in reality, and that reality happens to be that this look is best left to long, toned, modelesque legs. By all means, if you feel game to try it, why not.…

Put on a smile and wear the blues

Sartorially refined but indulging in shreds of dark florals and geometric prints just to keep things interesting, looking just as good in a pair of jeans and a shirt, as he does in a dapper suit: this is Alex, portraying timeless elegance with deep tinges of blue as lensed by Cesar Ochoa.

Dreaming their dreams amidst endless fields of gold

Like open doors connecting the real world with a seemingly parallel universe, Luca Meneghel‘s photographs are never short of extraordinary. Intoxicated by light, with the sweet scent of the sun lingering on their skin, his characters dare dream their dreams amidst endless fields of gold, free, untroubled, unreachable. Metaphors that split into small infinities, garments that speak in a whisper about a return to simplicity…
