AK Kruse : INTERVIEW fashion editorial, GQ menswear spreads, ZEIT MAGAZIN, GRAZIA Beauty, FÜRSTENBERG Porcelain, REFECTO CIL campaign and personal beauty images

The fashion spread in INTERVIEW magazine presents oversize knitwear, so cosy we want to live in it. In contrast to the rough time of year Sabrina THEISSEN captured the soft layered looks outdoors on the coast. Lara Mullen posed for her camera.

Nacho ALEGRE flew to Berlin for German edition GQ, where he photographed a speed editorial. Casting Director Gillian WIECHERT spotted the ideal driver of the nostalgic Triumph car in model John Halls. Fashion editor Manuela Hainz styled him à la Marlon Brando in this season’s hottest menswear looks, production by Daniel Hilz.

For the 1950s GQ shoot Casting Director Gillian WIECHERT selected super model Mark Vanderloo to embody the slick dandy. Fashion Editor Manuela Hainz dressed him to the nines and Markus Jans took the pictures.

Peter LANGER produced new material for his style column in ZEIT MAGAZIN. And: “who am I?” The style and portrait photographer captured key pieces of fashionable stars. What can’t Miley Cyrus, Lana del Rey, Twiggy, Jane Birkin, Janis Joplin, Marlene Dietrich, Spice Girls and Lady Gaga go without?

Serena BECKER teamed up with beauty editor at large Bettina Brenn to produce summer beauty images for GRAZIA in her second hometown of Hamburg. Thorsten WEISS c/o BLOSSOM MANAGEMENT provided hair and make-up support.
