‘Paris Confidential’ comes to us from groundbreaking mastermind Lev Efimov! A long time favorite over at The Libertine, Lev has provided stylistic inspiration for our work, going back several years (see some of the blog post that have featured his creations HERE). As his trademark, conceptual innovations develop, Lev continues to hone his discerning eye for gorgeous composition and flawless imagery. As one of our most apprised submission to date, this editorial simply slays, with its coquettish overtones, vivacious revelry and unabashed eroticism. Models Polina Malanova and Vika Rin are a vision of sultry perfection; bound and strapped into delicate but daring adornments composed of everything from the most delicate, frothy lace textures to staunch leather and rope fastenings selected by stylist Denis Chechkov. The final accents were contributed by Beauty Pro Ernest Muntaniol to soften and sizzle against the girls’ pretty palettes. It takes true brilliance to (so beautiful) marry playful innocence and smoldering sexuality to the degree that this artist recurrently achieves. This attribute, as much as any of the multitude in his wheelhouse, keeps us coming back for Lev time after time. Once you discover the delectable quality of his creations…it’s impossible to get enough. It’s a huge honor to endorse his artistic contributions here on Satiety Paper; and we have no doubt that the viewers will not son forget his name.

‘Undefined’…is really more like undefinable. The striking Philomena absolutely mesmerizes us in this straightforward, but faaar from simple, studio editorial. We have the privilege of endorsing the work of photographer Anna Daki once again; as she hits another one out of the park for Satiety Paper’s second issue: The Fall Flight. As we wrap up the last of our swim shoots and reach for our sweaters, it’s a pure pleasure to carry along some of previous contributors into the next phase with us. Anna is one of those creatives that we expect to see many great things emerging from in the future. This dynamite collaboration, frames some of the most exquisite basics that we’re coveting for fall. Just so you can hunt for them as well…the designer’s links are posted in the credit section for your reference. Enjoy!Credits Photographer/Stylist: Anna Daki Model: Philomena @ Izaio Models

Sit back and soak in the sensual masterpiece that is ‘Black Cat Prowl’. Our naughty little kitten in this story is portrayed by total sexpot, Amber Flowers. Amber beautifully communicates shifting attitude and playful energy as she explores the topography of the landscape without and within. The viewer is enticed into following this saucy siren as she liberates her body before the objective lens of photographer James Norton. Here at the Paper, we never claim to stand on ceremony in the selection process of fabulous additions to our liberal platform …and the ‘method to the madness’ of our vision is perfectly encapsulated in this gorgeous, yet edgy, and strongly seductive series. Like great publications that have come before Satiety, we endlessly strive to open the mind wider; to delve deeper into humanity; to cut the constraints of a judgmental society: and above all, to inspire and encourage each of our readers to relish in their personal brand of beauty, albeit large, small, straight or curvy, classical masculinity/simple or detailed and accessorized femininity, short or tall, dark or light, strong or soft…we love every single one of you…just as you are. Go out and celebrate yourself and the beauty you walk in, today ( after you check out this amazing series of course). Enjoy!
‘Mirage’ by Erik Tranberg is a positively breath-taking masterpiece in photography; shot on el Mirage Salt Flats of California . The series stars lanky young model Macy Nicole; who strikes us as a virtual doppelganger of the infamous and acclaimed, international supermodel, Daria Werbowy. With her piercing gaze and the fluidity of her physical presentation, Macy leaves the middle of the pack far behind, and crafts a memorable identity for herself in her own right. Throughout the years, Erik has been a repeat contributor to the collection on the Libertine…and now we gladly welcome the dawn of his new style on Satiety Paper. The high contrast black and whites, the dazzling lighting of the high afternoon sun and the dusty glisten of our model’s bronzed skin, all work in unison to create an explosive editorial that burns deep into the retinas of the readers. This kind of story is of such an unequaled quality, that we will run off some large prints to adorn our personal work spaces, and thus inspire elevated creativity. We also consider the images to be the epitome of sexless nudity (as sensual as they are, sex is not the focus…beauty and emotion are the focus) lacking vulgarity. The dramatic portraits raise the echelon of our entire publication, and we are humbled tho present you with this exclusive. Enjoy!
