Welcome to ‘Moonrise Kingdom’, our newest fashion story in the Fall Flight saga. Artistic vision of photographer Mariana Garcia and Art Director Rik Bracho, the series is a compilation of dark and brooding studio portraits; featuring exotic stunner Cristina Piccone. All new talents to The Libertine, this great team managed to strike a perfect pitch between thought and feeling, logic and emotion, head and heart…a balanced blend of captivating compilation and enigmatic energy. Beauty proSandra Bracho-Hyland smoothed the finishing touches onto the story with finesse, and clean grooming accents. There is something about the doe eyes and dewy lashes, in that ethereal light…something majestic. Enjoy!
Hypnotizing beauties Ugnė Sabalytė and Amalie Loendal tear it up in some very creative denim ensembles, created by Stylist Waina Chancy for our latest editorial ‘Still Torn Up About It’. The story is a smokin’ combination of classic and edgy. That balance can be very hard to strike, but the lens master, Tawfick Espriella, managed to manifest quite an visually pleasing reality! The clean studio environment is a flattering palette for these two youthful beauties to shine. Their warm skin glows against the bright white and brilliant blues. Makeup artist Lauren Massaro worked with the girls to craft care free grooming that communicates ‘natural stunner’ with effortless purity! The Libertine has the pleasure of releasing this fierce series as one of the last few in our fabulous Fall Flight series. The story was both shot on film and captured digitally, and thus, will be releases in a two part series. Distinct and ingenius, both…Enjoy!
Striking, androgynous model Courtney McCullough emanates aloof appeal for the discerning lens of Libertine veteran Cameron Davis. This moody portraiture combines subtle styling and minimalist wardrobe with the artistic vision of art director Charlie Black to actualize ‘Tomboy Ballad’; the latest addition to our Fall Flight series. Cameron has an eye for evocative imagery and unpretentious expression. Preferring to air on the edgier side of fashion, Cameron’s images skimp on ‘pretty’, to pack a more powerful punch. He has found a true creative complement in Courtney; whose hypnotic gaze presents more than enough intrigue to capture the readers’ curiosity…and keep it. Enjoy!
The Libertine brings you an amazing new story with sky-rocketing young face, Vita Sidorkina! This editorial, ‘Tripping The Light Fantastic’, is the brain child of revolutionary fashion photographer Kailas; who is a new talent on our radar, and one that we are absolutely thrilled to endorse. Focusing on light and color manipulation, the images frame Vita as a mercurial siren, exploring the tactile world of the senses and her capacity for pleasure. Becoming the muse was a breeze for Vita with the help of beauty artist Jourdan Dudgeon. The reader is invited on a journey with this dynamic team, through the imagination and into the experiential surreal. Enjoy!
Photographer Kyle Deleu (assisted by Sharon Zobali) returns to The Libertine with another smokin’ exclusive. ‘We’ll Never Be Royals’ is a youthfully rebellious editorial, featuring fierce new face Britt Linn Vee. The looks were composed and styled by Nandi K. to complement the rock-and-roll grooming looks created by artist Pam Vanika. This series encourages experimentation with fashion as a mode of self expression. Britt takes no prisoners and makes no apologies, in this edgy new mix for our Fall Flight series. This season, it’s going to be all about making a statement…so dare to bare, or dare to tare…just DARE! Enjoy!
This exquisite editorial, ‘Forgotten Ancestors’, was composed exclusively for The Libertine, as a collaboration between visionary photographer Dusan Jaukovic and couture designer Jelena Malesevic (for her personal line: Morfium Couture). The shots are purely transcendental, and model Li Xiao Xing becomes every bit the beautiful embodiment of the designs. Bold and alluring designs complement Li’s finely sculpted features and the natural beauty of one of the longest enduring sanctuaries inhabited by the Lenape people before colonization. There is a subtle mysticism to the surroundings, that is echoed in both Jelena’s creations and Li’s powerful aura. Though this story is both light and fresh, reminiscent of the longer days of summer, it felt like a perfect balancing element for our fall flight series. Not to mention, that the images are breath-taking. Enjoy!
The Libertine has the tremendous pleasure of collaborating again with master photographer, Adolfo Valente on a new sensual masterpiece entitled ‘Comely, Tender’. The glowing and ethereal editorial depicts delicate Italian beauty, Daiana Di Finizio in the sweet bloom of life. Hazy, shadowed rooms and golden morning rays cast intrigue and subtle dreaminess to the portraiture. Her gaze echos throughout the series and lingers with you after. Reminiscent of the iconic beauty of Ali MacGraw, Daiana is purely enchanting. This is another memorable series, and a perfect compliment to our already heavy-hitting Fall Flight series!
It’s very exciting for us that these beautiful images will also be featured QG Italia.com; as they will be doing a spotlight on the artist, along with an interview, and showcasing some more of his intoxicating work. Enjoy!
Distinctive new face, Julia Veilex shoots ’Seeds Of Change’ with photographer Amelia J. Dowd; to add to the Libertine’s Fall Flight collection. Julia’s beauty is so pure…youthful, that beauty expert, Maree Spagnol, kept her looks simple, clean and fresh. Amelia styled the shoot herself, with a combination of vintage pieces and labels such as Topshop and Asos. The editorial showcases Julia’s budding potential and versatility; in addition to the transparent sincerity that is so characteristic of Amelia’s work. We are pleased to participate in the collaboration of such promising and unique new creatives. Enjoy!
As much as a dramatic location can set the stage for a stunning editorial, sometimes shooting in the studio is a more complementary frame for both the model and the wardrobe. ‘Baby Blues’, shot for the Libertine by photographer Willy Ward, is just such a story. Featuring rising star Britt Nicholas, the editorial’s palette of deep blues beautifully contrasts with the models natural warmth. Britt’s easy energy gives the shoot a clean and cool feel that finds its perfect marriage in the denim ensembles compiled by stylist Ellen Purtill. Her casual outfits are offset by the feminine hair and beauty stylings of artist Jaclyn Hnitko.
As the Libertine makes its transition into our Fall Flight series, we are constantly consuming a steady stream of new talent and amazing artistry. We could not be more excited than to share a collaboration from this team of blooming talents! Enjoy!
For the third addition to our Fall Flight series, The Libertine has the pleasure of bringing you a classic autumn editorial, featuring intoxicating and exotic model, Lise Olsen. Lise creates an air of ease and sophistication in her collaboration with Italian photographer, Federica Simoni. Styled by the meticulous Elisa Sedoni, Lise dons ensembles by labels Misuraca, Cristina Miraldi, Ricostru, Chiara Baschieri and Persy Jewels. She enjoys a late afternoon stroll around sprawling country grounds; lingering occasionally to ‘smell the roses’. Each and every depiction of the enchantress, radiates cool class, underlined by modern style. Lise’s flawless look was created by beauty guru, Ilaria Borgioli to enhance the naturally striking nature of her unusual beauty. The entire team contributed grade A artistry, and The Libertine couldn’t be happier than to include the unforgettable story in our latest collection. Enjoy!
