For the past three years La Perla has collaborated with talented designer Jean Paul Gaultier to create the superb lingerie line: ‘Createur’. This year the collection showcases gorgeous pieces with two different themes. Choose from either nautical navy stripes and anchors in ‘Marin’ or pretty, ruched hand-sewn ribbons of silk from the ‘Ruben’ range.
Meanwhile La Perla’s signature line takes a slightly softer approach, featuring Baroque detailing, inspired by nineteenth-century novel The Leopard, by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. It channels a romantic glamour, with lace inserts and delicate candy colouring, serving as an exquisite gift for any lingerie loving lady.

The incredible Isabeli Fontana lends her smouldering looks to Schön! Magazine’s 19th issue in Last Words, a moody noir shoot produced by Andre Birleanu und his Supreme Rocket Productions team and photographed by Gustavo Zylbersztajn, with art direction by Daniel Burman. Set in a lavish Brazilian hotel, Last Words is an exploration of the interplay between light and darkness. The result is as eerie as it is luxurious, aided no doubt by stylist Renata Corrêa’s impeccable taste, including one stunning Gucci gown in glowing green velvet.

Art director Akmal Shaukat revamps the term “war paint” in the stylish, colour-intensified sportswear editorial, ‘Le Sport a Toute Allure’ (the sport has any pace), shot by Italian photographer Marco Falcetta. By adding bright hues of pink, blue, and yellow to the already vivid fashion colour-palette, Shaukat elevates the photo shoot from ordinary sports chic to high-fashion glamour. Styled by Manos Samartzis, the stunning fashion model Kat Cordts poses in a wide selection of casual jackets, t-shirts, and tights by Jean Paul Gaultier, Federica Moretti, Versace and D&G. This high-end, neon-luxe sports editorial is featured in issue #17 of Schön! Magazine.

The stunningly beautiful Olivia Palermo has done a lot with her young life in such a short time span. She has delved deep into the four corners of the fashion world and is making a name for herself in the fashion industry.
You name it, Palermo has most likely done it; and done it with style. She has been a contributing editor for Vogue UK and Elle magazine, a model, a stylist, an actress, a judge on major TV programmes and a prominent philanthropist.
With the recent launch of her fashion, lifestyle and travel blog, Palermo now has one more thing to add her fashion résumé…Style Icon.

You have been a contributing editor for Vogue UK and Elle magazine and recently launched your own blog. How would you describe the person you aim to reach with the content of your blog?
I hope that anyone who goes on my blog can take away a little something from it. It is a fashion site with a lifestyle element to it. My team and I try to highlight fashion, art and museum stories that interest me and it is something I would like to share with readers.
You are a model, a stylist, a blogger, a judge on TV programmes, an actress and a committed charity figure. What are you most passionate about and why?
I have a great passion for everything I do. My blog is very dear to me; it gives readers a chance to see what I like in today’s fashion.
What would you say is most challenging about being in the public eye and followed by paparazzi?
I am not a negative person and I do not look at things as a burden. It is a part of the business I am in, and I am fortunate that I do have privacy in my life. At the end of the day my fans put the biggest smile on my face and remind me how lucky I am.
Who do you look up to? Could you name an artist or a person who influences your work ethos?
My inspirations come from everywhere and everyday; whether it’s architecture, films, my travels and so forth. I have always had structure in my life and that rolls over into my work ethic. I have to give my parents credit for keeping a structured lifestyle during my childhood.
You have been a guest judge on Britain’s Next Top Model as well as Project Runaway and a guest editor at Pipelime.com. What is fashionable and trendy for you?
I love seeing stylish girls on the streets of London, Tokyo, Paris, New York, or wherever I may be; they are my inspiration. I admire the working girl that shows an interest in fashion and has innate style. Trends are always relevant. They are great to balance into everyday style, but it is important to have a personal style before anything!
What would you say is the most creative thing you have done lately?
I loved designing a shoe for Stuart Weitzman. I have always been a big supporter of his 50/50 boots and when he approached me to design and help raise money for a charity dear to him; I was pleased to be able to contribute. I have always tried to give back in some way, and that is something that everyone can do as well.
Is there another field or skill you would like to acquire/explore?
Styling, I have a fantastic time with it. There are such talented designers out there, for example: Matthew Williamson, Erdem and Christopher Bailey. It makes it more fun having a chance to do more creative styling using their designs.
What can we expect from you next?
Modelling. I shoot with many talented photographers, and shoot in fantastic locations around the world.
