PYLOT Issue 05
In The Excess Issue we are proud to have worked with talents including: Jeff Mermelstein, Christine Osinski, JH Engström, Jane Hilton, Cheryl Newman, Shonagh Marshall, Tom Johnson, Constantin Schlachter, Annie Collinge, Maxime Imbert, and more. We have worked closely with brands in order to produce some beautiful projects together, this issue’s specials are in collaboration with: LN-CC, Damir Doma, Tom Ford Beauty, A.F Vandervorst and NARS.
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.
