Styling for the shoot was done by Patrice Hall who was assisted by make-up artist Rebecca McMahon using Mac Pro and hairstylist Sky Cripps-Jackson using Kevin Murphy.
Retouching was done by Luka Ukropina and Mudita was assisted by Alex Pullin.
These gorgeous scarves were created by Roza Khamitova, a Melbourne-based fashion designer originally from Khazakstan. Each scarf, when worn as a shawl, creates the illusion that the person wearing it has giant bird wings.
The designs used on the digitally printed scarves were hand-painted by Roza, and are available in her Etsy e-shop, ‘Shovava‘. She claims that the natural materials that she uses (primarily cotton) are no-itch, non-toxic and recyclable.

In the ads, a sinister swarm of crowing magpies descends on London, attracted by the glittering façade of Watches of Switzerland’s Regent Street showroom and a model wearing one of the world’s most covetable watches. With a touch of mischievous humour, the tagline reads, ‘The world’s most irresistible selection of luxury watches’.

Kobi Levi’s first shoe designs were created from cardboard during his high school days. Since graduating from Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design in Jerusalem he has worked as freelance footwear designer and has learned the trade secrets of shoe development and craftsmanship.
For his own pleasure Kobi designed unique, creative and innovative shoe styles, which challenge the standard definitions of design, art and fashion.
In July 2011 Kobi opened his studio in Tel Aviv and started to offer his original designs for sale. In the studio he creates, develops and produces limited editions from his designs. All pairs are made by hand from high-quality materials.
The ‘Bird Series’ incorporates plumage colours into the shoes’ uppers, while legs and beaks form the heels.
