PYLOT Magazine Issue 5 (the Excess Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. We have worked in collaboration with: LN-CC, Damir Doma, Tom Ford Beauty, A.F Vandervorst and NARS to produce some beautiful collaborations for this issue. The cover has been shot by legendary portrait photographer Brian Griffin, and styled by Patricia Villirillo.
Photographers such as Éamonn Freel, Patrick Welde and Roger Charity took us to exciting places with their concept driven fashion stories, adding much loved colour to the pages of this issue. PYLOT Photography Editor Bex Day explored the concept of age and influence in her playful and though provoking story, ‘How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were’ (our longest title to date!)
It is also interesting to see that when commissioned with the theme of influence in mind, our stories have taken on a more elaborate aesthetic when comparing them to the raw stories commissioned in previous issues. We worked with Bobbi Brown on an exclusive beauty feature to highlight the changing attitudes in beauty that large brands can instigate, something Zoe Whitfield looks into in her article about changes in the model industry, where street cast models are front and centre.
Blossoming academic Phoebe Colley returns with an article about Aesthetic Déjà Vu, an intriguing commentary on ownership of art and how influence can be re-appropriated and approached. In order for us to become the influential publication that we aspire to be we need to nurture our instincts but also respect our influences. They make us who we are in every way.
