If you haven't already discovered it, you should seriously consider signing up for the Valonz Webazine. It showcases some of the most creative beauty editorials I have seen in a long time, along with the best talent in the business. Take a look here.

I recently bought the latest issue of Garage Magazine and I physically can not read it fast enough. I haven't actually bought Garage before, but let me tell you, I. Am. Hooked. Obsessed. Infatuated.
The cover is bloody amazing- 'John Baldessari met Inez and Vinoodh' and created a really fresh image that perfectly combines the creative worlds of fashion and art in a really modern and accessible way.
A well informed, creative, articulate and clever editors letter starts the tone for the rest of the magazine. It is followed by the most amazing gems- John Baldessari in witty and intellectual conversation with editor Dasha Zhukova. Derek Blasberg's hilarious email banter along side cutting edge and creative advertising. Smoking hot cowgirl Adrina Lima by the continually impressive Inez and Vinoodh (who on top of everything recently released a perfume with Byredo Parfums called '1996' - does everything they touch turn to gold!?). An editorial dedicated to fashion statements and manifestos of the top fashion houses with jumpers created by Leutton Postle. And then when you think it can't get any better there is a fucking SCRATCH AND SNIFF section entitled 'Five Artworks Five Odors', 'a new collaboration between sight and smell for your olfactory pleasure'! CAN YOU GET ANY COOLER!? Want to know what Antoine Lie thinks 'Desperation' by Roy Lichtenstein smells like? Just give the work a rub and breathe it in. Or how about 'Fountain' by Marcel Duchamp? Take a whiff of what Francis Kurkdjian reckons it smells like. Garage is packed. I highly suggest you purchase. From cover to cover it is immaculate and I can't wait for issue 6.

Inez and Vinoodh have shot the recent campaign for Barneys and also directed the ever so cool Lou Doillon in the recent video "Devil or Angel." With the mini Lou D by Shona Heath and the swirling whimsical illustration by Jo Ratcliffe the video gives even more dimension to Lou's wicked world.
A note from the Barneys website: "The campaign stars Doillon’s alter ego—a life-sized marionette, created by set designer Shona Heath, meant to mimic her every stylish move."
