I Lurve Mirrors

Please welcome my ode to individuality, engraven into fragile symmetry; a geometrically perfect, mirrored illusion.

When I feel this stubborn itch, I just can not restrain myself. I have to rummage some beautifully arranged gardens. I'm actuated by egoistic intentions, to personalize beauty at my own pleasure. It's probably a part of the process, to give shape and figure to the visions I see on the back of my eyelids. The easiest way to multiply beauty is smashing a mirror.

This time my victim was Lurve Magazine's editorial, feautring Cole Mohr and the incredible textile garment-sculptures by Ulrik Martin Larsen. The original photos were taken and styled by Zana Bayne, author of the Garbage Dress blog.

the Room #10 - Jubilee Issue

According to my personal numerology, 10 is an especially magical number, endowed with miraculous power. It can be divided in many ways, but is an unseparable whole after all.
A very special nr. 10 comes to light tomorrow. With their jubilee issue, the constant creative team of the Room magazine allows us a sort of insight within the walls of their "room", along with guest contributors such as Alnis Stakle, Emilio Tini or Emil Rebek. With no less, than Eniko Mihalik and Kinga Rajzak on two different covers. On about 200 pages... I think this is a very respectable weight for a newborn.

I am waiting you, as a Messiah. On your way, be accompanied by my blessing. Tomorrow night...

Ash Metal

As I dig deeper and deeper in the dense mass of fall's menswear editorials, I feel condensing boredom, when any of the studded Prada pieces lodge into my eyes on every second picture.
However, I don't dispute that the above-mentioned numbers are undoubtedly the "heavyweight editorial champions" of this autumn, those pins only stab my hunger for the excitement of diversity already.

Enough cawing, the situation is not hopeless at all. Just add a bit of movement, dramatic edge, and Ash Stymest to the monochrome styling and the result will be rather more fascinating than the slowly rusting leaves and nails.

"Tonight the stars hang vividly..."
Motion editorial featuring Ash Stymest for Metal #17 Issue by Antonina Obrado / Ferrater Studio.
