Dew Magazine’s New World cover

DEW Magazine’s latest issue is themed New World. Editor Teuku Ajie explains that it’s all about “clashing cultures, aesthetics and lifestyles that fuse at the point of impact.” But while the cover shot has a dark, almost melancholic feel – with model Natalia Andriyasova decked out in Gothic styling and posed with hand obscuring her face – it’s by no means presenting a bleak view…

5 makeup tutorial videos from Treats

We know Treats! as a quarterly dose of tasteful erotica, a return to something more than raw nudity yet an open and transparent celebration of sex and skin. In that regard it’s a reflection of the times. But what of the work that goes into the beauty aspect behind the scenes? The shortage (or complete absence) of clothing surely doesn’t mean beauty goes neglected. Treats!…

The Hitchhiker: cinematic stills

DEW Magazine‘s Cinematic issue revels in the drama and the emotion of the silver screen. Each photographer, each editorial, approaches the theme differently from Enokae’s modern film noir to this; The Hitchhiker by Stephanie McNiel. McNiel’s shoot feels distinctly like a series of film stills. Each one draws on cinematic techniques: our heroine photographed through the glass of the windscreen, a shot where we’re in…

Murder, my sweet: recreating the femme fatale

“I like smooth shiny girls, hardboiled and loaded with sin.” So says Raymond Chandler’s famed literary detective, Phillip Marlowe, in the 1940 novel Farewell, My Lovely. It’s the kind of Chandlerism that defined both the writer’s style and the lead character, himself as hardboiled as the ladies he pursues. Where the fashion world is concerned though, it’s not the detective we revere most but the…

Delicate as a flower

It’s that time of the year when the Northern Hemisphere embraces the subtle whisper of spring in the air, and offering visual pleasure are the flowers that bloom after months of absence. Of course, who better to interpret this gleeful season than the beauty industry?

Rising star Nikicio

Nikicio flew onto our radar at the recent Indonesia fashion week, with a collection that struck me as being stitched together with the very threads of youth. With pockets already stuffed full of awards and acknowledgements, including Best Young Indonesian Designer of the Year by Elle Magazine Indonesia and The Fashion Machine by Rolling Stones Indonesia, the label is a star that’s quickly rising. DEW…

Nea: fairytale beauty

When you’re a little girl, no dream is unachievable, everyone can be a princess and it only takes a little bit of glitter to make you smile. Much the same can be said when looking upon Vivienne Mok’s work; her multitalented self always brings dreamy, fairy tale-like photoshoots to reality. For instance, her spread in the 3rd issue of Dew Magazine features the model Nea;…

The sea before the sun goes down

There’s the beach and there’s the ocean, and between both is an accumulation of different perceptions. For some the beach is synonymous with sunshine and scraggly-haired surfer babes, the colourful slices of an inflated beachball, icecream and relaxed laughter. To others (or at other times) it’s associated with solitude, the cold, wet sand, ocean breezes and rolling skies. Teuku Ajie’s latest shoot plays to the…

Couture on the cutting room floor

What causes some images – some of the most breathtaking, captivating images – to get left behind on the cutting room floor? As lamented by Daniel in the past, print magazines have a physical limitation that the digital world does not, one that often results in ‘wasted art’ never to be appreciated by anyone but the artist. Today we get another sideways glimpse into the…
