Just as nature transitions into it’s amber cast afternoons of autumn, we enthusiastically unveil the highly anticipated story that ran in our second exclusive series back on The LibertineZine. For the first installment in that series, we were honored to bring you a collaboration with one of our favorite lens masters, Akila Berjaoui. Since foundation of The Libertine (our original home base), 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 Satiety Paper. For the latest exclusive story, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, Akila‘s Casting Director: Simone Hush designated Paper 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 fullfills every ideal of the ‘jilted bride’ turned ‘blissed out babe on the rebound’! Amy’s sultry vision, 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 fresh cover image! 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 Satiety Paper. 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, Satiety Paper kicks off the second exclusive online edition: of our beloved Libertine. 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!
