Dear fashionistas,

C is here with a fashion ISSUE about a campaign he did, introducing the dutch brand 'studioRUIG'.

I'd like to let you become acquainted with the collection and the designers. I am sure you'll love it!

studioRUIG - a Dutch concept
by Klaartje Glashorster,
Inge Hendriks and Sophie Soons

Klaartje, Inge and Sophie, the three designers behind studioRUIG, don't talk explicitly about their concept. They let their creativity and intuition speak. That's why the last three years this brand has become extremely popular and successful.

StudioRUIG captures time in their designs and accentuates them with an androgynous look, sustainable materials and strong colors. The designers favorite? LEATHER! It explains the brand's 'RUIG' component, which stands for 'rough'.

StudioRUIG already launched several collections: SOIRNOIR (09-10), PIGZWART (10-11), COUCOU MADAM (11), REVIVAL FOR THE FITTEST (11-12), RONJA (12), RONJA 2.0 (12-13) and GEORGE ET GEORGETTE (13). Together with model Marieke Blankenstein, who has recently been shot for Harper's Bazaar, C is the face of the latest collection. You can gaze the collection on the site of studioRUIG.

This still upcoming brand represents must-have clothes! It Recently appeared in Elle, Marie Claire, Fiasco, Jackie, Cosmo girl, The Ones To Watch and many more!

Hello guys,
Today, I want to share the F/W collection of JOYRICH. For those of you who don't know it, it's a casual-rich L.A.-streetwear brand that came to life through the hands of founder Tom Hirota.
Here are some looks from the new collection, enjoy!

 Want to see more? Visit the official site of JOYRICH here.


Hello Issues,
I've recently discovered a collab between two photographers, Stephanie Bassos and Timothy Burkhart. They express themselves through the art of double exposures, which they lift to a whole other level. They both step back, trust in one another and let coincidences naturally happen on film. Stephanie takes the shots of people and Timothy then reloads the same film to encapture beautiful places and scenery. That way, the end result becomes a fusion of lovely contrast.

You can find these images amongst others on the photographers' blog. Check it out!

Buenos días, lectores!

C is back on track!

After very hard studying and getting used to his local university, C has found out how to combine both modeling and studying.
Last weekend, he signed with Alpha Male Model Management in Amsterdam, Netherlands!

Alpha Male is a young model agency, that was founded by Yannick Kranstauber in December 2011.

In the past, Alpha Male's boss worked as a stylist. Yannick came across guys with talent and he noticed that they still don't have any agency, so he decided to start one himself. Focusing only on male models, Yannick makes them develop by building elaborate and variant portfolios.

C did his first test shoot in Amsterdam while he was passing by the agency for a chat. He also met two models, who have already been working with Alpha Male.

We are waiting for the results from the first test shoot!
Send us a picture or an editorial of what you'd like seeing C do.

Alpha Male will soon launch his site, but you can already hit the like-button on its Facebook page:

Hey guys!
Last month, we posted a first look of the MMMxH&M collab. Now we have even more information!
It is suggested that this collection will contain re-released favorites of past collections of the Belgian brand. Inside each garment, there will be a detail of the season of origin and year. Isn't that exiting? We're expecting a lot from this upcoming collection!
