New work from Daphne Groeneveld by Ellen van Unwerth. What do you think?! I’m not sure I’m ready for Daph to go from being a babydoll to just being a doll… This feels a bit raunchy for such a sweet angel face. I think I prefer her angelic side (Revisit it HERE). Either way, she is totally stunning and never disappoints. Enjoy!

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!
We are thrilled to share this stunning editorial from Italian photographer Emanuele Cassina; as the newest addition to the Libertine’s Summer Session series. The shoot blends soft colors and textures with the natural soft sensuality of a woman’s nude form. Giuvi Palazzi, the mercurial beauty cast for the shoot, embodies the sacred purity and sensuality for which the female form has so long been revered and adulated. Absent of undertones of vulgarity, this story allows the reader to enthrall themselves (fully, if fleetingly) in the ‘invocation of the muse’. 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!
