True Blue

The breeze tickles the alders,

fracturing the sky in to a million glass shards of daydream.

And I breathe in forever…

The moment your mind stops time:

the bullets freeze in the air, and fall

the needle dull kisses your skin,

(eternally poised to pierce)

the razors, the knives…

They lay on their sides

and wink back at your blinding light.

But you,

You become sound

Become touch

Become sight.

You wield the sword that splits the worlds;

Nothing can touch you.

Nothing can have you.

You half yourself, by your own calculations…

and go everywhere

always.

And there I’ll be waiting…

hurry

SNEAK PEEK: ‘A Day Of Rest’ | Joanne By Malcolm McGettigan For Satiety Paper #2 | The Fall Flight 2014

'Day of Rest' . EXCLUSIVE.  Joanne By Malcolm McGettigan For Satiety Paper #2. The Fall Flight 2014. Cover 4We bring you a soft and sweet new story from the portfolio of photographer Malcolm McGettigan. ‘A Day of Rest’ peeks in on charming beauty, Joanne, as she goes about accomplishing small, daily labors of love with ease and care. The editorial mainlines intimate energy (paramount over flesh or sexuality) but in no way stops short of the bewitchingly, guileless nudity we adore here at the paper.  As the most recent contribution to our second issue of Satiety, Malcolm’s piece lends a lighter touch to some of the more dramatic tones of our collection; striking a harmony that we so strive to create. It’s lovely to spend the day (albeit, in just a few moments) with this delicate enchantress and the artist who captures his perfect vision of her beauty. Get swept up in the daydream HERE. Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK: ‘The Back Alley Salvage Botique’ | Ting Gong By Mae Richards For Satiety Paper #2 | The Fall Flight 2014

'The Back Alley Salvage Botique'. Ting Gong By Mae Richards For Satiety Paper #2. The Fall Flight 2014. Cover 3We’re loving this fun fashion piece by NY photographer Mae Richards. Featuring exotic beauty Ting Gong (@ Ford Models), the editorial combines eclectic styling and sophisticated beauty resulting in real modern mastery. Mae, who has previously contributed portraiture to The Libertine’s collection, returns to us with an ever evolving personal signature of artistic composition and classic story telling. Her collaboration with Ting is no exception! The model has a unique way of infusing intrigue into the images; with a girlish simplicity that offsets her equally mysterious aura. From some angle she appears frank and transparent, while in other moments she embodies an impenetrably icy exterior. The coalescence is positively electric. Check out the rest of the story HERE, at Satiety Paper. Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK: ‘Black Cat Prowl’ | Amber Flowers By James Norton For Satiety Paper #2 | The Fall Flight 2014

Editorial - James Norton PhotographySit back and soak in the sensual masterpiece that is ‘Black Cat Prowl’. Our naughty little kitten in this story is portrayed by total sexpot, Amber Flowers. Amber beautifully communicates shifting attitude and playful energy as she explores the topography of the landscape without and within. The viewer is enticed into following this saucy siren as she liberates her body before the objective lens of photographer James Norton. Here at the Paper, we never claim to stand on ceremony in the selection process of  fabulous additions to our liberal platform …and the ‘method to the madness’ of our vision is perfectly encapsulated in this gorgeous, yet edgy, and  strongly seductive series. Like great publications that have come before Satiety, we endlessly strive to open the mind wider; to delve deeper into humanity; to cut the constraints of a judgmental society: and above all, to inspire and encourage each of our readers to relish in their personal brand of beauty, albeit large, small, straight or curvy, classical masculinity/simple or detailed and accessorized femininity, short or tall, dark or light, strong or soft…we love every single one of you…just as you are. Go out and celebrate yourself and the beauty you walk in, today (after you check out the complete, amazing series over at Satiety Paper of course). Enjoy!

'Undefined' Philomena By Anna Daki For Satiety Paper #2 . The Fall Flight 2014. Cover 21‘Undefined’…is really more like undefinable. The striking Philomena absolutely mesmerizes us in this straightforward, but faaar from simple, studio editorial.

As we wrap up the last of our swim shoots and reach for our sweaters, it’s a pure pleasure to carry along some of previous contributors into the next phase with us. Anna is one of those creatives that we expect to see many great things emerging from in the future. This dynamite collaboration, frames some of the most exquisite basics that we’re coveting for fall. Just so you can hunt for them as well…the designer’s links are posted in the credit section of the full editorial, for your reference. Enjoy!      phelomena-19a (2)

'Heartland'. EXCLUSIVE .Andreea Damaris And Tyler House By Michael Segal For Satiety Paper. The Summer Session 2014. Cover. 2

We couldn’t create Satiety Paper’s summer issue without including at least one classic portraiture of Americana; so here you have it! ‘Heartland’, which comes to us by way of photographer Michael Segal, combines the sweetness and intensity of fleeting summer romance, with vast, familiar horizons and the enduring beauty of this land we love. Following the light hearted and tender tryst of models Andreea Damaris And Tyler House, the series harkens back to the youthful simplicity of unburdened afternoons, entwined in your lover’s arms beneath the shade trees. Some love only last a summer, but the memories can stay with us forever; annually renewed by the breezy aroma of ripening fruit, the endearing magic of a glinting sprinkler, and the echos of laughter dashing around under a merciless sun…hair blowing and grass beating against intrepid feet. Satiety Paper invites you to join us as we stop and savor the scenery. Enjoy!

SNEAK PEAK: ‘Sunset Strip’ | Michaela Wain By Louise Smit For Satiety Paper | The Summer Session 2014

'Sunset Strip'. EXCLUSIVE . Michaela Wain By Louise Smit For Satiety Paper .The Summer Session 2014. Cover. 6Hott, hott hott! That’s the best adjective to describe this collaboration by fresh Photographer Louise Smit and flaxen haired stunner Michaela Wain. Appropriately dubbed ‘Sunset Strip’, this story sizzles under the summer sun with gilded accessories and bright, cheeky ensembles, combined by Stylist Molly King to flatter the smoldering sensuality of our inimitable model. The series takes the reader from high noon, to brilliant sunset with flirty peeks at dewy, bronzen skin and glistening silhouettes of Michaela’s feminine figure. Not only does this editorial feature the hottest designs for 2014 summer swim, but it aims to entice the reader to consider taking some sexy risks of our own this season! You certainly don’t have to be a model to hit the beach with flirtatious confidence in these strategically skimpy combos. Every size and shape is equally flattered by a bit of mischievous embellishment. Throw on a contemporary cut in your favorite color, and let the smile do the rest; WE dare you!

SNEAK PEAK: ‘Driftwood’ | Abi Penhale By Jason Mark Harris For Satiety Paper #1 | The Summer Session 2014

 

'Driftwood'. Exclusive. Abi Penhale By Jason Mark Harris For Satiety Paper. The Summer Session 2014. Cover.9Satiety Paper is thrilled to share ‘Driftwood': a gorgeous editorial created by Jason Mark Harris to ring in the start of summer. Composed with classic styling and timeless visuals, this piece has us hankering for a secluded beach-side escape, independent of time and space. The story was original picked up by another publication that is no longer running, so we’ve landed the fortune of snapping it up for republication, before anyone else got to it! We have our long time relationship with the ever-faithful Jason to thank for that. The images feature Jason’s muse, Abi Penhale (who has also appeared previously on The Libertine), as the shore haunting siren with a bottomless gaze and wind-swept locks. This series is one we have coveted since the first instance of crossing it. We welcome both talents to the fresh pages of Satiety Paper, and hope to continue sharing their collaborations with you in many issues to come. Come and view this entire series of beautiful images over at Satiety Paper now, when you purchase your annual subscription. Enjoy!
