Schön! 26 | Lucy Liu by Markus&Koala
As autumn hits our shores, our minds turn to the richer colours, sumptuous textures and delicious detailing of the new season. What better time to celebrate all things luxurious and the careful craftsmanship that goes into creating them? On our pages you’ll find the very best of the autumn collections showcased by the models of the moment and, of course, our cover star, Lucy Liu, shot by Markus&Koala.
Fresh from the couture runways of Paris, Anastasia Ivanova, photographed by Nicolas Guérin, enchants in the most exquisite creations in transitory, while Maud Le Fort cuts a striking figure in Kristian Schuller’s future perfect. Hot List model Ava Smith gets even hotter in the sultry night moves, shot by Greg Swales.
As usual, we head behind the scenes to discover the tremendous talent bringing luxury to our lives. In Paris, we speak to couturier Alexandre Vauthier and, beyond the runway, we look at fine jewellery, from up-and-coming brand Anfray & Anfray to the diamond experts at De Beers. Young fur designer Rachel Zeitlin shows us her latest creations and we talk to Porsche Design about its iconic Chronograph watch. We step into the lab at P&G Prestige to learn what it takes to create beautiful make-up for super brand Dolce & Gabbana.
In London, rock icon Skin talks us through her prolific career and, in New York, rising star Cory Michael Smith tells us about his role in one of this year’s most anticipated television shows, Gotham. Following Germany’s success on the pitch this summer, we bring Deutschland to you in the form of some of the country’s greatest talent: from ballet dancer turned supermodel Eveline Hall to legendary actress Hannelore Elsner, as well as the drama and elegance of German fashion in frau im mond.
So sit back and luxuriate in our 26th issue.
We hope you’ll agree that it’s sehr Schön!
