‘Heartbreak Hotel’ | EXCLUSIVE | Jessica Sikosek By Akila Berjaoui For The Libertine Magazine | The Fall Flight | October 2013

 The Libertine Magazine. 'Heartbrake Hotel' . EXCLUSIVE. Jessica Sikosek By Akila Berjaoui For The Libertine Magazine.The Fall Flight .October 2013. 997

As The Libertine transitions into the amber cast afternoons of autumn, we enthusiastically unveil the highly anticipated collection of stories that compose our second exclusive series here on The Zine: The Fall Flight. For the first installment in the series, The Libertine is honored to bring you another collaboration with one of our favorite lens masters, Akila Berjaoui.

Since foundation of The Libertine in 2009, Akila‘s work has been a constant source of inspiration and motivation in developing our own publication! The freedom, feminine idolatry and sensual revelry communicated through out her work, embodies our sybaritic philosophy here at The Libertine.

For our latest story, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, Akila‘s Casting Director, Simone Hush, designated Libertine favorite, Jessica Sikosek, to portray the jilted bride that finds respite for her broken heart on the glistening beaches of the Italian Riviera. Adorned in edgy yet feminine looks created by stylist Amy Bannerman, Jess is every bit the ‘jilted bride’ turned ‘blissed out babe on the rebound’. Amy’s sultry vision was tangibly enhanced by the accompanying hair/beauty looks; expertly envisioned and executed by beauty pro, Helena Lyons. For the finishing touches on the editorial, the fabulous Madeline Carroll designed the illustrations for our cover; fierce and fresh!

As she always does, Akila formed a playful bond of friendship with her subject; allowing a natural emergence of gaiety and beauty throughout the vivid images. It is the youthful aura and unapologetic sass to Akila‘s work, that has us so enchanted with her here at The Libertine. She somehow, never fails to see the extraordinary in the quotidian…and for that Ms. Berjaoui has our unending admiration and adulation.

Without further adieu, The Libertine kicks off our second exclusive online edition: The Fall Flight. Enjoy!

‘The Birkin’s Back’ | Mijo Mihaljcic By Marc De Groot For Vogue Netherlands | May 2013

 

Don’t they know…Birkin was never out ;)

This is my favorite shoot of the summer (so far). So simple. Such clean, fresh, rare beauty. I would like to paper my walls with this story. Each and every shot is captivating. Mijo is very exciting new talent that will be doing a lot in the fashion industry this year; and Marc is magic, as always.  I had worked to perfect these shots for you and hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

‘Venus En El Paraiso’ | Morgane Warnier By Elina Kechicheva For Marie Claire Spain | May 2013

This editorial has me daydreaming of a sticky summer getaway somewhere exotic. I love everything about this story. The images are flawless; and Morgane is truly hypnotizing. I hope to see much much more of her work. Every look here has a striking personality to it, and yet, each one seems to harmonize perfectly with her mercurial energy. It’s one to remember. Enjoy!

Jessiann Gravel Beland By Shot Luis Monteiro For Vogue Magazine | May 2012

What a transportative experience it was for me, browsing through this editorial! With land work by Luis Monteiro and under-water shots by Sumer Verma And Umeed Mistry, the team manages to create an exotic wonderland in which mermaids walk on land. The wardrobe is decadent and overwhelming in keeping with the breath taking scenery (God forbid the background out-shine the fashion after all!) All in all, I would call this a favorite ;)
