‘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!

‘Tender Is Life’ | Annemara Post By Karel Balas For MilK Magazine #36 | June 2012

“In the high season of weddings, MilK wanted to celebrate the magical moments of family gatherings; where you dream that time is suspended. Inspired by the delicate jewelry line, Piaget Rose, we composed a wardrobe embodying summer qualities such as light airiness, and gauzy silhouettes. The colors of the dresses are sweetly reminiscent of  precious stones in a whirlwind of soft nude and beige colors, faded and lit from within in golden light. Time stops to contemplate the sheer beauty; adorned by precious talismans.”
