Fast forward & rewind
Do you sometimes feel the need for speed, or do you like to take it slow? Here at Schön! we want the best of both worlds, and enjoy the thrill of changing gear, switching between velocity and down time. So, we invite you to ‘fast forward and rewind’ in this, our 27th issue.
In two short years, Brooke Candy has sped from relative obscurity to megastardom. Dressed in fiery red, in a shoot by photographer Michael Flores and formidable fashion editor Nicola Formichetti, our fierce cover star is as arresting as a Stop! sign. In contrast, American actress and star of Pretty Little Liars Troian Bellisario goes for a mellower mood in the more subdued colours of the season, and China’s singing sensation Laure Shang plays with motion in a graphic shoot by photographer Leslie Hsu.
While some of the talented individuals featured on our pages shot to fame in next to no time, others have been slowly seducing us for years. We talk to celebrated fine jewellery designer Stephen Webster about nearly 40 years in the business and to Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who first stole our hearts in Love Actually back in 2003, but has since grown up to become one of our most promising young actors. 2003 was also the year that cutting edge footwear brand United Nude was born. We find out how it is using technology to fast forward shoe design into the future.
As always, we showcase the models of the moment, from Maggie Jablonski to Lida Fox. The serene Laura O’Grady introduces us to a Change of Pace and Matt Trehe is laid back in The Whisperer. Rosie Tapner plays the waiting game in Hopper Visions, while Franzi Mueller takes to the streets in rebellious fashion in Wayward.
So, whether you like to live life in the fast lane or prefer to take in the scenery, we have something for you. Buckle up or kick back – you pick the pace – and enjoy!
