Love Magazine, Imaginative Headwear
by Alice Byrne
Love Magazine is without a doubt my favorite fashion publication. The new issue is The Supernatural Issue No.6, and as ever, this publication does not disappoint. Firstly, it is huge, described on the cover as 432 pages of discipline, obsession and desire. This is the lead shoot from the publication, which also comprises of several of the cover images available. This photo shoot is by Mert & Marcus, they have several in this issue, and it captures five of fashion’s most stunning and interesting faces. The model’s featured are Lara Stone, Mariacarla Boscono, Kristen McMenamy, Nyasha Matonhodze and Daphne Groeneveld.
The images include religious iconography and imaginative and striking head gear, and they are all styled by Katie Grand and Panos Yiapanis. It is hard to know where to start with these insane headpieces. So there is a giant stuffed crow, by Pam Hogg, on top of Nyasha’s head, which really is a beautiful image. It is not actually easy to tell in some of the images, but in each photograph the models are all crying. The other stand-out piece of headwear is worn by Lara Stone, and is the zipped head piece, which was made at the stylist’s studio. This just makes an amazing image, its quite cute really, with the little ears and two tiny plaits in Lara’s hair. I think this whole series of photographs are amazing, and I totally love Love Magazine.
