Welcome to our newest editorial from Swiss photographer (and team) Ramon Spaeti. ‘Hip To Be Square’ encapsulates modern style, and effortless energy; mixed high on a turntable to some carefree funk. The story is an ironic blend of cheeky and demure. It plays on fashion’s light hearted origin as a costume art, and a way to make light of the seriousness of our lives. The protagonista, Michelle M. was a perfect choice to portray the coy, urbanite lead. She infuses attitude and aloof charisma to an otherwise, very quotidian succession of experiences and interactions. The eclectic looks we’re compiled by genius stylist Debora Giugno, and offset by low maintenance grooming additions from artist Philipp Keusen. As is often the case in life as in art, the devil’s in the details. Enjoy!

‘Cast Away’ features up-and-coming, young stunner Rae Doherty; in an sweetly serene compilation of images by photographer Nat Lanyon. The two take to the seaside and in the late afternoon and seize the opportunity to incorporate some naturally golden light. Model Rae has an unforgettable presence on film, and captivates the lens with minimal effort. The brooding energy of the shots, and the basic nature of the styling, combine to cast a rich palette of highs and lows; nicely framing the distinctive aesthetic of the subject. This series is the latest addition to the The Spring Fling issue of Satiety Paper (#4). There are still a handful of other editorials yet to release; and those will be accompanying this one soon. Enjoy!

Our infamous contributor, Pino Leone, shows his aptitude for wielding a spotlight, with his newest editorial, entitled ‘A Discerning Palate’. The studio set employs dramatic contrast and modern style,s to push the envelope of edginess. With the glance felt ’round the world, dazzling beauty Vaida Tamulenaite lights a million torches and captures the readers’ full attention. Donned in fur and feathers, lace and latex, Vaida is at once beguiling and audacious throughout. The arresting nature of the series is undeniable; with much more at hand, than just the provocative essence of a flawless muse. Forward thinking stylist, Simona Sanfedele, compiles a structured yet sensual wardrobe of La Perla, Celyn B., Halaby and Max Bianco, for the piece; blending opposing elements of hard and soft, to balance the drama of the composition. Each look was given a brilliant finish by beauty pro, Giordana Hassan, and fully embodied by our model. It can be very rare to find such an impeccable outcome of composing a fashion story…but when you consider the unlimited promise of all parties involved, it’s hard to imagine anything less. Enjoy!

Stefano Fabbri returns to Satiety Paper with a lovely new studio set featuring the Paper’s alum, Joanne N. The story highlights the fluidity of the model’s powerful physique; spotlighting her as the focus, in white underpinnings, lingerie basics and the application of strong contrasts. The highlight on Joanne’s figure allows the details of the dark background to exist with subtlety, and to support the journey of the eye, rather than detract from it. We found these strong and simple (black and white) images immediately reminiscent of some of Lindbergh newest, and most memorable, studio sets; with the addition of a modern edge. The absence of complicated adornments, directs focus to the discretely seductive tone of the portrayal…without overwhelming the artistic composition. It’s another beautiful product from the collaborative efforts of two great talents. Enjoy!

Mile long legs stretched delicately across a thousand threads of Egyptian cotton, lanky stunner Carleen Laronn tosses a tumbling cascade of chestnut locks over one shoulder. Punctuated by the dazzling gleam of an intricate bauble, her long neck line bends elegantly away from the daring plunge of a balconette. Through smokey eyes, Carleen smiles coyly into the frame of photographer Dana Pennington. In every direction, opulence accents the setting. Flanked by an indulgent oasis of classic glamor, our model is pinned up in (and stripped down to) frothy lace, strapping elastic and sky high stilettos. With champagne chilling on ice, pleasure was paramount in the creation of this sultry series; which is an aspect, reflected effortlessly throughout the images. The artist finesses a familiar rapport with his subject; and in doing so, he captures so much more within his creation, than just Carleen’s enviable aesthetic. Exclusively for Satiety Paper #4…we are not the only ones ‘Courting Desire’. Enjoy!

“Dizzying” would be an understatement, one would agree, after full acceptance of Cassandra Smith’s almost careless, yet engaging presence in these shots. Photographer Tyrone Lavigne captures her easy vacillation from one emotion to the next in an absolute wash of delicious flavors; leaving the viewer curious and crazed, exhausted in the most vivacious of ways, much like a muscle beaten to strength after a gratifying day of hard work. Drawn to devour, when we catch the glinting spark in her eyes (in such precious few of these fleeting moments), the viewer is at once confronted with the craving to understand the muse, and the realistic futility of that desire…creating a deliciously fervent frustration! There’s a subtle restlessness in our model, as she bares the beauty of her energy… giving it up to us to toil with. The stunning series solicits a compulsion to know her fully, and the hope that one could stand in the flame, unburned, by succeeding. I love the flirtatious elegance of this excellent collaboration. Enjoy!
Photographer Vlada Krasilnikova conjures a futuristic dreamland of glaring, neon fluorescence and the chromed-out glint of sleek, steel surfaces…bouncing light off of the staunch silhouettes of lifeless technology. The sterility of the setting makes for an artful dichotomy of organics and inorganics; spotlighting the natural electricity of Aquarelle’s striking new sensation, Lida. The structured designs were created by the visionary Tonya Vorobyeva and arranged by stylist Elena Ivanova Tagirova. Clean and slick beauty accents were incorporated by the talented Anna Bugrova. Dark scenes illuminated by neon lights, strewn with artificial props and injected futuristic noir designs, make for a sultry series of cyber inspired style. Enjoy!
We’re loving this fun fashion piece by NY photographer Mae Richards. Featuring exotic beauty Ting Gong (@ Ford Models), the editorial combines eclectic styling and sophisticated beauty resulting in real modern mastery. Mae, who has previously contributed portraiture to The Libertine’s collection, returns to us with an ever evolving personal signature of artistic composition and classic story telling. Her collaboration with Ting is no exception! The model has a unique way of infusing intrigue into the images; with a girlish simplicity that offsets her equally mysterious aura. From some angle she appears frank and transparent, while in other moments she embodies an impenetrably icy exterior. The coalescence is positively electric. Enjoy!
