It’s an urban jungle out there

Concrete to replace exotic vegetation, dark and foreboding Parisienne streets to be swapping places with beaten paths running through the wilderness, high heels to take the place of bare feet: a lot of it is different, yet a lot of it is exactly the same. The city is an urban jungle and staying ahead of the pack is a must. Captured by Benjamin Kanarek and styled…

A little bit of everything: men’s inspiration

It appears quite easy for the modern guy to look perfectly put together and ready-to-go at all times, regardless of his destination. All it takes is a dash of florals, a hint of camouflage, perhaps an exotic print laid against a pair of ripped jeans, and a cool backpack tying it all together, for him to be standing out for all the right reasons.

This mystical girl dancing beneath the stars could be you

Why might it be you? Because the face of Hanalei Reponty, Mara Hoffman’s fall 2014 muse, is largely obscured; hidden beneath a gauzy checkered veil, a curtain of mermaid-like hair, or some delicate ring-embellished fingers. Olivia Malone’s photos are more about the clothing and the mood… about the mystical California skies awash with stars and the jutting rocks looming against the sand.

Beams of sunrise over skin made of gold

Her body is the faultless kind capable of suddenly awakening the soul, while her skin appears to be made of precious gold, yet it’s in her eyes where lost stories strive to break out, twinkling and then disappearing, time and time again. And there is unadulterated sensuality and irresistible softness shaping up her being, her beauty caressed by beams of sunrise, everything else bursting to…

Beyond the look of sad eyes

Talk about conflicting strands of truth weaving the same story in the way the brightest of hues speak about exuberance, the richest of prints describe a joyous existence, and a simple look beyond a pair of beautiful eyes reveals a profound sadness, as they all lay confined within the edges building Vai Yu Law’s suggestive photo shoot. Alive with questions, faithfully interpreting the struggles of…

Escape to a tropical paradise

When the air is shielded by the warmest light, when you find yourself surrounded by cannas, endless bamboo gardens and hundreds of cactus species, when you can almost taste the humid air and everything around you gains a lighter feel, you know you’ve stumbled upon a corner of paradise, be it tangible or imaginary, spreading wide before your eyes, filling the pages of a book,…

Turning the tide, rewriting her story

At first glance she could be anyone, her story still a blank canvas. She could be a wanderer, or she could belong to a small place somewhere near the sea, she could be a dreamer, or a woman in love, she could be searching her way, or she could just as confidently be following her heart. A work in progress, her story shifts with each…
