E RTH E TM R T OTO LE I FR D E4 / London! In this issue we will explore the wonderful and amazing city of London. This is the first in a new series of issues that will explore various different cities aound the world and the impact they have on the wold of fashion. We are adding a new travel section which will review hotels, restaurants, nightlife, shopping and various aspects of each city. In this issue we review six amazing hotels in London, from the modern and quirky Sanderson designed by Phillipe Starck to the traditional Lancaster London on the edge of Hyde Park. Many of the editorials were shot either inside the hotels or in the surrounding areas. In three of the stories I photographed one of my favorite models and a dear friend Zane Sila in an attempt to see how we could capture the energy of each location utilizing the same photographer, model, clothing simply by changing the location, shown in Mid Century Madness, Modern Monuments and Spa Day.

In addition to our new features we are featuring the work of some amazing photographers. Burning for You by Karl Losenicky is featured on our dual covers as well as in a spread in the magazine, showing that intense passion can result in spontaneous combustion. Cabin Fever by Samuli Karala explores the extravagance of being a prisoner of luxury and the opulence that can result. Caged Heat by Remi Rebillard tells the story of 2 girls playing the roles of master and slave and the luxury and glamour of slavery. Bring Out Your Dead by Kat + Duck shot on the dark decaying streets of London shows that zombies can be sexy and beautiful and that death may not be the end as fashion can live on. We hope you enjoy the issue!

L O O AZ P Originally built in 1884 Andaz London is a masterpiece in old DR world Victorian charm meets new world style. Each of its 267 beautifully appointed guest rooms are designed to give the N E feeling of a luxury apartment with the connivence of a full A IV service hotel. Located adjacent to Liverpool Street Station in L T 6 the Financial District, Andaz is a short walk to the shoreditch district rich with nightlife. The exterior of the hotel is classic in S13 every way, with its red brick facade and minor hints of the / modern interior. Entering the lobby the first thing you notice is

that there is no formal reception desk, just sharply dressed attendants with portable electronic devices and chocolate cookies. Each hallway has amazing original contemporary art and there is a large atrium lounge for when visitors want to get away without braving the harsh climate of london. The rooms are spacious and well decorated with the finest materials and a stocked complimentary mini bar is a very nice touch. A separate office and wifi made it very easy to get to work

Entering into the dramatic lobby Stark works SA 8 his magic of playing with proportions with giant columns and 3 planters and tiny stools and tables always leaving the viewer L1 feeling as if they stepped into the world of Alice in Wonderland. / The hallways are bathed in orange light and the elevators loop video feeds of natural elements. The rooms are spacious and bright with floor to ceiling windows with playful fixed encased blinds lending a geometric linear element to the room. No minor detail is overlooked, from the Eames La Chaise to wall mounted flower pots and a glowing onyx desktop. At night guest can choose the color of their mood by rotating a dial on the wall which controls the lighting for the perfect ambient touch.

Y AR Very unique hotel with only 12 guest bedrooms and 4 suites D Ainspired by legendary designers or design movements The E N boundary is a one of a kind gem designed by Terence Conran and Associates in the hip Shoreditch neighborhood of U H London. Originally built as a restaurant and then expanded into T O 0 a hotel The Boundary is a feast for the senses. Some of the B14 designers and movements that the rooms are themed after include: Charles and Ray Eames, Josef Hoffmann, Bauhaus, / Andree Putman, Le Corbusier & Charlotte Perriand, Heath Robinson, Eileen Gray, Scandinavian, British, Shaker and my favorite Mies Van Der Rohe. The Mies Van Der Rohe Room is a stunning representation of the Mies aesthetic from its original Barcelona and MR side chairs to its walnut burr veneer closet doors. Marble, leather, wood and stone throughout and a library of books about the great master architect are sure to leave you inspired. Breakfast at the Albion a fresh market and bakery on the ground floor is not to be missed and surely a great way to start your day.
