Persol, an Italian brand which has always been a hallmark of class and the highest quality is paying tribute to the world of photography with a unique collection: Persol Reflex Edition. Capturing beauty for over a century, cameras have made it possible to save endless images of the world which surrounds us and fix them in time and as the memories of generations. The same magic and poetry concealed behind the development of film finds expression in the uniquely Italian artisan production of every pair of Persol eyeglasses. Consisting for the first time of an optical model (PO 3044V) and two sunglasses models (PO 3046S and PO 3047S) featuring Polar and Photo-Polar lenses, Persol Reflex Edition is inspired by vintage-design analogue cameras reinterpreted using modern technology: a fascinating and modern cult object which has captured the memories of generations and reshaped history and the visual arts. Persol is available at OPSM.
Photography duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott capture Gucci’s graphic elegance and bold sophistication in the new spring/summer 2013 advertising campaign. Featuring models Anja Rubik, Karmen Pedaru and Clement Chabernaud, the images are as clean-lined as they are evocative. Which look is your favourite?

I love the bold style choices of Natalie Joos, one of New York City’s finest Casting Directors. She’s become iconic for her unique sense of style, housing a vintage collection that rivals that of both Decades and Resurrection and being snapped regularly by Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman. Wouldn’t you love to play dress ups in her closet?
The many strings to Ece Sukan’s bow make her one of Istanbul’s contemporary trendsetters.
