In ‘Admit One’ photographer Saga Sig captures the crux of legendary movie characters in a modern day twist. We start with Rachael from ‘Blade Runner’ who takes on the tough essence of her famous quote “I’m not in the business…I am the business” in a black leather constructed dress by PPQ clad with a high collar and spiked enclosure. Mia Wallace from ‘Pulp Fiction’ also exudes a modern take on Uma Thurman’s character with pink hair, the classic painted on lip and sexy pose capturing her persona. Moving through this shoot is like attending multiple cinema shows in one swoop as we meet Veronica from ‘Heathers,’ Andrew Clark from ‘Breakfast Club,’ Padmé Amidala from Star Wars and finishing off with Lila Crane from ‘Physco.’ Styled by Anna Trevelvan in designs by Gucci, House on Holland, New Era, McQ and Lacoste, the cinematic feel of this shoot is captured in style.

If there’s one thing Julie Newmar doesn’t do…well it doesn’t seem that this statement can even be made, as this actress, model, businesswoman and dancer has done and conquered seemingly any trade she has pursued. Not only has she starred in dozens of movies and television shows, she has a Steven Spielberg movie named after her, was the original Catwoman in the “Batman” television series and has fiscally-insured legs for $10 million. Even after the birth of her son, Newmar continues to pursue a career as a model in her 60s and does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Judging by the high-profile affairs with stars including Angelina Jolie and the way her modeling career sky-rocketed, it would never have been assumed that Jenny Shimizu was plucked from a life as a mechanic. The first Asian-American supermodel’s abundance of tattoos adorning her tiny frame immediately placed her in the spotlight, beginning with her ads on billboards for the cK One advertisements and now gracing the pages of our latest issue.

Heresy is praised in Anthony Shirley and Tom Wells new London based mens t-shirt brand Heretics. This artistic t-shirt takes influence from various art styles and artists such as pop artist Roy Lichtenstein and illustrators H.R Giger and Noir Art and each intricate design can take up to 40 hours to complete, according to the designers. Shirley and Wells hope to bring the attitude of heresy to their wearers, which they define as “anyone who does not conform to an established attitude, doctrine or principle.”

Instilled with virtues of hard work and integrity at a young age, American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez has built his way to stylistic success in the fashion world. Rodriguez designs with the concept of minimalism and logic and enjoys the functionalism of sportswear. He says even when designing eveningwear he uses a ‘sportswear hand.’ Taking influence from women, fellow designers and architecture, Rodriguez’s designs carry great aesthetic appeal. Aside from fashion, Rodriguez enjoys photography and fine art, which we may even see published in a book someday.
