Satiety Paper welcomes striking fresh face Kelly Gillespie, and burgeoning fashion photographer Kalan Briggs to our cohort of industry game changers. This editorial, is so simple on the surface, but the depth and intensity that is captured between the artist and his subject, goes so much farther than the superficial beauty that one can appreciate with a passing glance. ‘Pure as the Driven Snow’ is a clean, studio set, with basic wardrobe by stylist Erin Walsh and beautifully bare grooming. The hallmark of some of the best talents, is to create magic without pretense, and this collaboration fits that bill perfectly. 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!

‘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. Enjoy!
