Reminiscent of stirring Abercrombie + Fitch catalogues of the past (which pushed boundaries and yet became classics) ‘Endless Summer’ is a story of young love; that which burns so hot for a moment, and then lives in the memory for a lifetime. In this exclusive editorial for The Libertine’s Summer Session, Lucas Passmore captures the heat, cooling and freedom of young lovers; retiring to crystal pools, surrounded by rocky cliffs, to escape the sizzle of the vengeful, late summer sun. Models Ayla Parker, Izzy Spain, Dallas Haupt and Jordan Elias climb and dive; savoring the bliss of eternity within that moment. The beautiful young couples seem almost forgotten by time, as their golden arms embrace, laying hot skin on hot skin, draping cold, wet hair over a strong shoulder… this story can’t but evoke nostalgia for sweet butterflies and sticky lips. Our editorial, ‘Endless Summer’ was greatly enhanced by the timeless looks created by stylist Kiara Schwartz and simple beauty palettes contributed by artist Bree Powell. Occasionally, art takes us to a place that we cannot travel on our own. In this case, when I close my eyes, I can almost smell cold stones and watermelon. Enjoy!
Like a profoundly refreshing breath of air, the photographs that Attilio D’Agostino shot of Ehren Dorsey in the editorial ‘Everlasting Light’ (Exclusively for The Libertine Magazine) leave an indescribable lightness of spirit in their wake. Ehren bares so much more than her beautiful skin and body… she looks into the lens and bares her soul. Fortunately for the creative community, there exists the technical perfection of Attilio’s vision behind the lens. The Libertine is honored to include this classic collection in the final chapters of our Summer Session series. This team of unique talents has managed to provide us with a genuine work of art. Enjoy!
Captivating model, Shaughnessy Brown is a veteran here on The Libertine. We have often featured her work, and faithfully followed her career. In one of her most recent photo shoots, Shaughnessy posed before the keen eye of photographer Bruno Maric, in a stunning set of black and white portraits entitled ‘Cat’s Cradle’ (for The Libertine). The candid images strip away all facade and serve to bare Shaughnessy‘s pure, natural beauty; rarely seen completely unadorned. As we prepare to wrap up The Summer Session here at The Libertine, we are keeping eyes peeled for new talents all the time; and adding these two staggering newcomers to our roster in time for fall, makes the bittersweetness of weaning summer, slightly more palatable. Enjoy!
