Ajak Deng by Egor Tsodov for Numéro Russia September 2017

Ajak Deng goes to the desert in search of something greater by Egor Tsodov for Numéro Russia, September 2017. This is a story about the beauty of raw humanity.

Exploring a fluid atmosphere exposes a more non-linear format. 

CR Fashion Book

Lily-Rose Depp goes back in time “1999” by Steven Klein for CR Fashion Book Issue 11. Born in ’99, Depp devours the scene with pictures that mimic shots of her mom (at the same age), captured by Klein himself. So, while some see this as over-exposure of an innocent and impressionable, 18-year-old girl. In truth, this young women comes from the fertile ground of Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis – I think this is relatively tame.

This haute idea is the new kind of couture, as gorgeous never looked so good with a vision of vertical that’s gone horizontal.

Anna Ewers, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Natasha Poly, Vittoria Ceretti & Doutzen Kroes go a ‘la natural for a high fashion line-up unlike we’ve seen. To speak one’s thoughts through the act of display with words falling off my lips like a mini Hemingway. To transfer styles to sound-waves… would allow the frequency of chic to hit the streets.
