New to LOVE: for issue 21, an unstoppable line-up of super-talented young creatives bring their fresh perspectives and unique ways of working to LOVE magazine for the very first time. Among the photographers in this new wave of contributors are Sharna Osborne, who works her analogue video magic to create an epic studio story featuring (among others) Model of the Year Kaia Gerber; Julie Greve, who shoots Sara Grace Wallerstedt in an examination of the adolescent emotional landscape; and Alana O’Herlihy, collaborating with her best friend from school Bella Hadid in a very personal transformative project. Breakout talents from the world of acting include Maya Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, interviewed by her friend and Oscar-nominated young actor Lucas Hedges; Richie Merritt, star of White Boy Rick; and Charlie Plummer, Nico Parker and Raffey Cassidy. The biggest, most colourful designers emerging from London’s fashion schools are styled by Richard Quinn (only a couple of years out of St Martins himself), who is interviewed by @pam_boy, the brightest young writer of the new generation of online fashion critics. Just a few of the all-new youthful luminaries featured in LOVE issue 21, edited by Harriet Verney (aged 25). #LOVE21

“The bond between Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi is fashion’s longest love story, one that will continue to touch our lives for years to come. I am profoundly saddened by his passing and deeply touched by his constant care and perseverance until the very end. When we called just a few days before the show, his only thoughts were on the richness and beauty of the collection. It’s a true testament to his character.” @silviaventurinifendi’s tribute to Karl Lagerfeld was accompanied by five of his sketches that sat on the seats of each guest at the @fendi show, their final collection designed by Lagerfeld. at Fendi Showroom

The @gucci AW19 show saw a set comprised of 120,000 LED lightbulbs, a 100 meter mirrored catwalk as well as floor to ceiling mirrors that refracted blinding light back at the audience. Based on the concept of “persona” and “identity”, @alessandro_michele employed the use of masks, like the one seen here in the form of a bronze eagle, to emphasise the dual function of a mask. Quoting German philosopher and political theorist, Hannah Arendt on using masking as a tool to present ourselves “as a distinct and unique being among equals.” RG @gucci

“Christopher Kane is to London what Marc Jacobs is to New-York: the fashion week saviour who consistently delivers clothes worth gasping and drooling and investing and dreaming.” Pam Boy reports on the @christopherkane AW19 show, which saw models including @walldamort, @kukuawilliams and @stuckinteenage walk the high-rise office block runway to the sound of a high pitched hum. Wearing flouncy satin and lace dresses with crystal embellishments and emblazoned with the words ‘Rubberist’ and ‘Looner.’ In reference to Kane’s exploration of fetishism and sexuality.

@halpernstudio’s AW19 collection looked to motifs and shapes inspired by the Art Deco era as well as the Russian-born French artist Erté, whose illustrations were abstracted and printed onto garments. “Decadence-that’s really what started it for me. You can see so many times in history where decadence was not only being decadent, but it was a form of getting through things. A form of rebellion. And that’s still the most important thing for me: being able to go into that fantasy and pulling things out that make you feel like you’re going to be ok.” Read the full interview with Michael up on thelovemagazine.co.uk Film by @jess.kohl.

“Star of the nuit and modello of the moment Gigi Hari was seen slinking, bopping and guzzling Ciroc top to toe in Zandra Rhodes as the crowds outside swelled clawing at the doors, we lassoed the chicest from the throng, rescuing L’Oréal award prize winners Sheryn Akiki and Goom Heo.” @guiguir0sa and @harrie.bradshaw report on last nights #LOVERAVE, where guests danced to dj’s including @2manydjs, @jodieharsh and @new.found.form in celebration of #LOVE21.
