Satiety 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.

Visionary fashion designer Yiqing Yin teamed up with creative genius Julien Vallon and modeling industry pro Mathilde Frachon to create this revolutionary new piece for Satiety Paper’s debut issue. Entitled here, ‘Crimson and Clover’, the images are running exclusively in Satiety paper before launching as part of the designer’s new campaign and collection 2014. Like other innovative designer/ateliers: fountains of creativity rippling the fashion industry these days (MMM, JPG, Erik Halley and Heather Huey just to name a few) the incredible Yiqing Yin best articulates the the goal of her designs at conception in this description ‘The modernization of smocking and the elimination of any order of construction’. Complementing, unstructured coiffes byYuji Okuda and fresh beauty palettes by Makeup Artist Ismael Garcia Blanco create the perfect tone of whimsy to enhance the ethereal nature of the designs. It’s no wonder that Yiqing Yin has been honored with the Grand Prize of Creation of the City of Paris and has been named by by French Vogue as one of the 8 young designers to watch. Satiety Paper is eternally honored to present this gorgeous editorial as part of our collection.

Photographer Tawfick Espriella follows us on our new endeavor to birth Satiety Paper as an innovative and opulent publication, with this bold new story entitled ‘Coming Up Roses’. Model Nina Tsiotsias (@ Next Miami) portrays the style-wise young icon; willing and able to tackle the all of the most current looks of the season with her delicate beauty and fierce attitude. Chic, black ensembles, selected by Stylist Waina Chancy, flatter the puckish lookers lithe figure and strike a playful balance with the natural grooming accents created by artist Khadine Ali. We have had the pleasure of endorsing Tawfick’s artistic vision in the past; and we are very pleased to add these other two strong talents to our roster.

Satiety Paper welcomes this new collectors piece by photographic genius David Cohen De Lara; to enhance our already stellar set of incredible editorials in The Summer Session. Tess de Vries,Nika Daalderop and Kim Jaspers star stud this studio pictorial, in structured androgynous ensembles, which perfectly offset the delicate and feminine beauty of David’s latest muses. In high contrast black and white, the timeless composition of the images stands staunchly off the pages and reminds the reader of the power of raw magnetism. We can never say enough about David’s work…which is always unique, always timeless and always spot on. As for personal taste, this is one of our favorite (and finest) stories.

This planet is vast; and all over it runs the bottomless black tar river of pain. At one time or another, we all trip into that endless blackness. Some of us will spend much of our lives swimming. We may reach land and get our footing, and just when we’ve dried off and aren’t looking back, we stumble and submerge again. If you lose hope, swimming becomes very hard, and indeed, some people drowned. But the silver lining is, there are boats everywhere! If you keep faith and tread the water, eventually a boat will pass you. If your eyes are open in this life, there is no reason you should have to drown.
By no means do I aim to insinuate that you can just board a boat and its smooth sailing from there into the sunset. Indeed, the great river has a current of its own and we are seldom in control. Sometimes you will have to accept a detour to your chosen route. Sometimes you will lose sight of what’s ahead and be terrifyingly jolted by rapids. Sometimes the current will take you in the direction you want to go and things will get easier for a bit; there is a harmony and seemingly a synchronicity to it all for a time. You’ll pass by beautiful landscapes and mind blowing visions. You will come along other boats and share kinship with fellow travelers. You will pass by other people: drowning. On your long journey to the ocean, you will be given choices. You will have pleasures and pains, daylight and darkness. But mostly my sweet soul (and this is the key to the whole dance), you will have to paddle. You will have to paddle like a motherfucker. Until your arms burn, until your exhausted and frustrated, hungry and despairing; and still you will have to paddle. At times the current will become too strong, and your best efforts will be overwhelmed. You may be swept into eddies for unforeseeable periods of time. Sometimes these eddies have whirlpools and you may languish for what seems like forever, with no results and no progress and no hope. And still, I tell you…paddle like a motherfucker. We all must accept that there are many periods in life that we have no control over. But there are also periods where you must fight until you think you might die, and then keep fighting a while longer, or you will stay there in that eddy, swirling, alone in oblivion for eternity; and so your journey ends. I tell you this as one who has patched many holes in the boat with my own meat. One, who has often lost my paddle, gone forward an eternity with just my hands, and then fashioned a new paddle from the tiny gifts that floated by. Yet, I’m still afloat. I still see the sun set on the horizon in front of me every evening. I try not to be judgmental of my pace, or my route or my wrong turns. Belaboring those things just causes me unnecessary strife and shame. After all, the water is completely out of my control. Complete not of my own making. Completely and totally all powerful in the expanse of my life. It would be silly to waste anxieties on how I could have changed it; when I couldn’t have. All you can do dear ones, is paddle…and sometimes the river takes you.
Basics never looked so good, as in this vibrant new editorial from (frequent previous contributor to the Libertine) Craig Stuart Eisenberg. With strategic tugs on a simple sweater in just the right places, classically striking Flora Watling creates an initially subtle, alluring proposition. One can’t help but be drawn in by her assuming presence and sensual magnetism. Craig goes on to capture Flora in a modern black one-piece with strong, figure framing architecture and easy carriage. The transition to bare skin feels as effortlessly natural as breathing from there. Flora dazzles the lens with her ease at blending vulnerability and confidence. The photographic plays on light and dark, render contrasting energies, suggestive of the ‘sinner/saint’ balance that is coveted in fashion, and so elusive to the average user. Satiety Papers first issue is proud to take a page from Craig and Flora’s book on dazzling basics.
