Bec Parson’s was so excited to get to the printers this morning to pick up her 3rd edition of LoveWant magazine. A creative collaboration of herself the photographer, art director Bartolomeo Celestino and stylist Imogene Barron.

Lara Bingle shot by LoveWant in LA
“It was just a personal story about her, no fashion – just LARA. Super Raw and cool” Bec Parsons

“After being told that the model we were suppose to shoot was stuck in a volcano (not literally) we were a little worried! Then we found Susan (Eldridge). She is crazy, what a shoot that was! The most interesting 48 hours of my life in car from LA to Vegas!!” Bec Parsons.
The beautiful, Susan Eldridge was photographer, Terry Richardson’s former girfriend, go figure.

“My favourite image in this issue is of Emma Balfour, I have loved Emma for years and always wanted to shoot her, we got to hang out, ride horses and take pictures, my idea of the perfect afternoon. ” Bec Parsons.

Young Actress sneak-peek

StyleMeRomy and ghd joined forces once again to make a beautiful shoot possible. It was three months in the making, busy schedules, budget constraints and team of what seemed like hundreds. We finally managed to get six of the most talented and beautiful up-and-coming Australian actresses on a rock in Bellevue Hill, Sydney.

A sneak-peek at everyone’s magic at work.

“OMG on a perfectly fine day of course it had to rain for the first time when the girls were on the rock! ghd’s polishing serum was a saviour” Renya Xydis Hair Director for ghd …always keeping us amused.

The full shoot will launch on July 1st.

Leah can’t survive this winter without her Wheels & Dollbaby coat and vintage beanie. Not really that cold though in Sydney compared to a hometown London winter.

Window Shopping

Whilst Burberry communicates in the latest high tech fashion, Hermes chooses a more old school approach with the most incredible window displays. You only have to read Diana Thomas’s Deluxe to know how truly steeped the brand is in tradition and true luxury.

Question: Why are Hermes Australia’s windows looking so fabulous? Answer: Eric Mathews.

Recently appointed, Visual Merchandising Manager Hermes, Eric, previously worked in China for Conde Nast developing titles in the Chinese market. He was the Editor and Creative Director of Men’s VOGUE China and worked on the development and launch of GQ China.

“We are opening in Brisbane in December which is a very exciting addition to Hermes in Australia” Eric Mathews

I also asked Eric what’s his favourite piece of Hermes that he owns and what piece of Hermes does he dream of ….

“My most prized possession that has been with me faithfully for years is my Hermes Globetrotter diary, I couldn’t function without it, it organises me! “

“I am longing to own many Hermes products, so I think I am in the right place! I have my eye on an Alfred bag at the moment. I covet most of the exits from the men’s RTW S/S too so I will have to pace myself I think!”
