In the high-fashion editorial ‘Magniloquent’, the fashion-designer-turned- photographer Thanassis Krikis whisks us away to an intriguing world of aristocratic beauty. Using fashion model Laragh McCann, who portrays the perfect blend of innocence and sophistication in the stunning dresses, skirts, and tops by Roberto Cavalli, Yves Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, he creates a masquerade inspired photo shoot with romantic undertones. Fashion editor Nicholas Georgiou adds ornate masks and hats to the almost costume-like fashion collection, completing the glamorous looks, while hair stylist Christos Kallaniotis creates exaggerated hairdos that match the historical theme of the editorial perfectly.

The dazzling fashion editorial, ‘Soap Opera’, by the creative photography duo Kristofj and Sean, is inspired by popular soap operas from the 80s. Styled by Grace Joel, the models in this retro photo shoot look ideally suited for the glamorous soap opera theme. Isabella and Roos are clad in vintage dresses by Yves Saint Laurent, Beyond Retro, and Issey Miyake and beautifully accessorised with sparkling oversized jewellery by Fenton and Atelier Mayer. The seductive and seemingly confident Drew and the equally impressive Liam are dressed to the nines in tailored pinstripe suits and bow ties by Gieves & Hawkes, Ralph Lauren and Dunhill.

‘Gymnasium’, the sporty fashion editorial shot by London-based photographer Michiel Meewis, is a vivid flashback to high school gym class. It captures models Benno, Sander, and Wouter partaking in various sporting activities, including the rings, pommel horse, and medicine ball, and illustrates Meewis’s realistic interpretation of the active “school gym spirit”. Styled by Pieter van Loon, the athletic model trio are dressed in various pants and singlets from Diesel, Boss, and Calvin Klein. The sports-oriented theme of the photo shoot coincides with the latest issue of Schön! Magazine, which centres on the upcoming Olympic Games that will be held in London this summer.
