Anastasia Kolganova does laid-back chic in luxe denim and pretty pastels

Soft and feminine verging on edgy and casual, Aeri Yun’s cool styling melts two worlds into one, layering, clashing and juxtaposing this season’s prettiest pastels and denim…

Power up: style-inspiration for the fierce and fearless

It takes having a deep appreciation for art and a deeper love for fashion, perhaps even a strong sense of confidence tying them together, to be both willing and capable of creating a style so unique, and spirited, and adventurous, that no one could go on ignoring. Modeled by Tricia Akello and Queen Onyemaeci, and lensed by Steve Marais, the best runway looks from Mercedes-Benz…

The world takes on a touch of the unknown

Every place, the glorious, enigmatic dessert included, can feel strangely familiar and impenetrable at once, its every direction calling with a sea of possibilities, drawing together the unimaginable. Stirred by the fear of the unknown that expands infinitely outward, Polina Safonova is muse and adventurer, lensed by Alyssa Montgomery just as she is about to stumble upon other worlds: invisible, nameless, uncharted.

Dope girls dream in luxurious shades

Off-white, sterile, feeling like a haze, and alluding to a sense of reality that is slowly drifting away, Steve Marais‘ editorial forms the ultimate fantasy bubble in which dope girls dream in luxurious shades. A neat and natural palette of blacks, whites and beiges, made whole with sparse tinges of metallic, works in amplifying the intimate mood. Styled by Laurel Pantin, the clean take on…

The truth of nudity, lightly veiled (NSFW)

A little bit of mystery goes a long way. A beautiful woman with bare breasts and black lace briefs is one thing, but throw a black veil over her and she’s something else again. “Sobre a nudez forte da verdade, o manto diáfano da fantasia,” said Eça de Queirós (“Over the strong nudity of truth, the diaphanous veil of fantasy.”) Model Maja Krag, in Jasper…

Hands on something in red

Something in scarlet red, something sure to turn people’s heads: this is Koray Parlak‘s editorial for XOXO The Mag in a nutshell. Of course, there’s more to it than smudges of red paint and whispers of graphic eye make-up, of forward silhouettes and understated ruby details. Stefani Sober models head-to-toe, her jaw-drooping physique on full display, her striking beauty adding depth to the series of…
