Peek At F Magazine December 2012

I'm proud of our December 2012 issue of F Magazine. We wanted to inject a little bit of fantasy and escape to the editorials we included.

On the cover are popular models Nov Sonita, Ly Sophanlida, and Chan Srey Rath. It was fun working with them!
We collaborated with some of our favorite creatives.
This editorial is shot in Singapore and was inspired by Laura Esquivel's novel 'Como Agua Para Chocolate'. It's about dreaming of finally reuniting with a love one.
It was photographed by Onin Lorente who contributed several editorial shoots for us already. It was also a showcase of the designs from Future Fashion Now of Singapore.
If there are dreams and fantasy then this shoot called Futuristic Monster was inspired by nightmares.
Vietnamese model, Owen Tran, gamely donned crazy accessories, most notably from Em Riem, transforming himself into a beautiful monster. He even made a young girl cry during our shoot which made everyone laugh.
I worked with Toefi Torres and Engrid Roco Rosal to come up with the looks for this story. They first collaborated with F when they made special headpieces for Aok Sokunkhana on our 3rd anniversary issue.
The street styles of Iloilo was our feature for our Street Eye section and I must say the kids are getting bolder and edgier with their sartorial choices in that city.
Thanks to Rei Hontanar who provided all the snaps of the cool kids in Iloilo.
Inspired by Gustav Klimt's artworks and the Symbolist movement we came up with this editorial that celebrates the heavily texturized works of Ambre Romyda Keth, Eric Raisina, Anne Noelle, Keok'jay, SCT, Sophy&Sina and many more designers. It's a riot of colors and textures that seems to be the trend for many of the labels here in Cambodia. This was photographed by our creative director, Sophea Ke and I styled it.
Lastly, this shoot with Sophea was my baby. Just outside of Phnom Penh, whenever I go to Siem Reap, I always pass by this stretch of sandy area. So it was the perfect location for some nomadic inspired menswear that looked perfect on our French-Khmer model, Gauthier Wahsmuth. It's one of my favorite editorial that I've styled for F. Think nomadic and I'm there!
Do check out our December issue and see what we've worked so hard. As always your feedback is greatly appreciated!
