The power of geometry

There are certain spaces where fashion and architecture are destined to collide, and countless moments that keep on witnessing their principles melting together in order to innovate, to reshape the world as we know it, to paint little bits of everything in abstract tones. For their 4th anniversary issue, DEW Magazine chose to further explore the power of geometry, and Jasmine Maher’s fantastic editorial starring…

The not so desperate housewife

The ’60s housewife: sweet, loving, caring, generous, her makeup never far from gorgeous, her hair always on the flawless side. Scratch that. The 1960s housewife: tough, commanding, determined, a little bit self-absorbed. Her makeup still gorgeous, her hair nevertheless perfect. Coming close to fitting the latter depiction, Shariza Tamara plays the sassy lady of the house, as photographed by Melissa Houben, donning the prettiest of…

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…

These ladies do all black with conviction

It would be easy to point out how black is arrogant, effortless and quiet, how in its modesty lies hidden a world of mysteries, how its simplicity does nothing but add to a stubborn sophistication, to a restless long for edginess, to a classic tale of elegance. It would all be true, of course, but there’s no point in using words to paint a reality…

Karl Lagerfeld, Cara Delevingne: a jelly shoe dream

Rainbows, icecreams, jelly shoes, and Cara Delevingne. With a list like that there shouldn’t be any trouble getting the new collaboration from Karl Lagerfeld and Melissa shoes to sell faster than hotcakes. Melissa have been collaborating with big name designers for years now – from Vivienne Westwood to Jean Paul Gaultier – but we have a suspicion that the latest offering will be the most…

Jena Dover plays the sexy dame for Gaschette

Fashion and acting are not at all dissimilar; in fact you might say the two are inextricably linked. Fashion helps create a persona, a character, and that’s true for all of us whether we’re models or actors, funfare ride attendants or dental clinic receptionists. So for South African born actress Jena Dover slipping into the role of a sexy BDSM mistress wasn’t just acceptable, it…
