The embodiment of masculine femininity

It takes a strong, confident woman for whom femininity is not a purpose but more of a habitude, to be able to fully submerge in a masculine movement and come out as the embodiment of pure sophistication. Brain, soul, manners, perhaps a classic set of features and the right attitude prove that femininity doesn’t really hide in the shortest of dresses. Dipped in high contrast…

The majestic Queen of the Underworld

A photographic metaphor put in motion in a space that appears to be indulged in a perpetual night, Kate Andrews’s editorial fuses the regal undertone with the unearthly feel of the underworld, as we came to recognize it. Concise and uncomplicated, the photo shoot still manages to open the gates of imagination, depicting a beautiful creature that could be a queen or a goddess alike,…

A tribute to pure, unadulterated glamour

In a visual encomium to pure glamour, you need more than a little polish and just a little less than too much perfection. By that I mean your model – ideally proportioned, desirably sultry, dripping in just enough diamonds – should still feel like a woman and not a doll. Roxana is woman. Antonio Barrella’s black and white shoot for Bambi Magazine nets in luxury’s…

Manstyling in Paris: Esther Quek

With her unfailing ability to rock a man-style look, Esther Quek is well justified as a street style darling. Though sticking to a monocrhomatic palette, she made this black suit stand out by use of clashing stripes and checks, along with the finishing touch of a white flower lapel pin.

Masculine lines meet the gray concrete

Nothing about the urban landscape gets to ever be considered dull, not on the gloomiest of days, not even when its colors start to slowly fade away. Photographed by Jesse Koska, the gray concrete morphs into an abstract cove, concealing, uplifting, with a story hidden behind every single cranny. Something as precise as the masculine lines describing the beautiful selection of coats styled by Sheena Winiarski,…

Mystery & sensual details: an intriguing rendezvous (NSFW)

Not every question in life gets to be answered, the way not every little secret gets to be revealed, but where there’s mystery, there’s also enticement, there’s enthusiasm, and there’s an added reason to never stop wondering. There’s tremendous beauty in a black and white photography leaving you longing for colours, or in a sheer dress forcing you to guess what truly hides underneath all…

Ellen Skaroni and Fashion Erotokritos Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2014

Ellen Skaroni and Fashion Erotokritos showed a collection in black and white tones with stripes, squares, checks, geometrics, animal print and dogtooth to monopolize the attention of designers. The dresses were airy, and the style of clothes very feminine and elegant. The combination of leather with other fabrics and materials stood out, as did the insistence of designers in dogtooth, a trend from last season.

Classic beauty lost in a cinematic landscape

Blue seas under blue skies, powerful reds setting fire to the old world architecture, classic tones of black and white competing for attention; and it the midst of the cinematic landscape, a beauty so striking, yet so incredibly soft that makes everything else fade into the background. Scenes that could easily belong to a distant past are being brought up-do-date and made relevant by Stefan…

Back to basics: on the street in Lisbon

There’s much to be said for the power of the right basics. A plain white tee, for example, can be made to look smart with an all-black outfit, if the quality and the silhouette are right. Add an elegant clutch and some gold jewellery, and little more is required.

She was a wanderer, yet her spirit belonged to Paris

Paris. All you have to do is whisper its name, gently, unhurriedly, as to not disturb its otherworldly corridors of time, and all of a sudden you’re transported to a place so sublime that makes breathing easily a nearly impossible task. Either you wandered its cobbled streets countless times, or you still dream about that one defining moment when the city of lights will simply…
