The Libertine is thrilled to bring you a new, exclusive addition to our Summer Session series. The editorial, entitled ‘The Attic’, is a fusion of classic artistry and dramatic sensuality, framed against a setting of opulent luxury. A collaboration between exotic model Bee Dee Pearson and photographer Blooming Flowers; the story captures the essence of feminine allure, as a beautiful young woman disrobes within the sanctuary of an attic in her paradisaical South American retreat. Reminiscent of some of the great classical works from the likes of Helmut Newton and Irving Penn, the shoot features tasteful nude portraiture with very little styling or over production. Each shot tells a story all of it’s own, for a collection of truly stunning artistic nude images. Enjoy!
Here is a gorgeous new story by Libertine favorite, Marco Michieletto. Having shot for us in the past, Marco created ‘Carbon Capture’ with Italian enchantress Sylvia Sakellaridis; resulting in a perfect component to compliment our Summer Session series, July 2013. Marco manages to capture intimate and emotionally charged impressions of the beautiful model/actress; as she unveils a subtly hypnotic private persona. Each images is completely transporting. The chemistry between the photographer and the subject radiates from each frame, for a series that is both whimsical and evocative. Beautiful BEAUTIFUL. Enjoy!
Shot on location at the abandoned, but soon to be restored, 1926 YMCA building; editorial ‘L’été’ is a rustically romantic roman à clef, of models Jessica Sikosek and Mary Reschar, styled in gossamer looks by the designer Kim Hendrix.
Conceptualize by progressive talent Fox Harvard, this fashion story blends the demure with the dilapidated, refined with rachitic; yielding an entrancing depiction of unabashed opulence, against a backdrop of rough austerity. The two young sirens vacillate effortlessly between gritty and glam in a series that will subtly stay with you. Enjoy!
As part of our Summer Session, The Libertine was pleased to collaborate with photographer Katja Kremenic to bring our readers this ethereal summer 2013 lookbook for exotic new resort label, Cariblanco. The series, created in Costa Rica, captures Swiss/Costarricense designer-turned-model Fabiana Kuhn in an array of soft and eclectic leisurewear, as she explores the jungles, coast lines and breath taking horizons of a tropical paradise. This story transports the reader to a peninsular oasis where wayfarers sleep late, subsist on natures bounty and never have an obligation to get fully dressed. Soak up the sun and get inspired for carefree summer style. Enjoy!
For ‘Suit Up’, our latest fashion story to join The Libertine’s Summer Session, we bring you a top tier lingerie story that truly doesn’t pull any punches. Shot by photographer Jason Mark Harris, the skyrocketing young artist cast classic beauty Abi Penhale as the heroine of this feature.

For several years, the sweet Estée Rammant has been a Libertine favorite. Though it can be hard to find new shoots of her, The Libertine was elated to learn that the ingenious photographer duo Ben + Zie had a working relationship with her. Here we bring you the most recent editorial work of the hypnotizing young Belgian. ‘Diamond In The Rough’ seemed fitting considering where these talents are all going. Minimal styling was arranged by the entire team. Enjoy!
For the first editorial in The Libertine’s “Summer Session” series, we bring you a stunning siren sequence; lensed by Libertine favorite, Akila Berjaoui. For this editorial, Akila captures her gorgeous friend Vlada as they lounge around the pool on a summer day. Vlada’s energy and beauty are completely disarming in ‘Don’t You Call Anybody Else Baby”. Her smoothly toasted skin, wayward curls and deep chocolate eyes lend easy sensuality to the flawless photography (airy summer styles assembled by Akila and Jacob Habib). We couldn’t be more excited to exclusively share Akila and Vlada’s recent collaboration as a part of our latest review. Enjoy!
