letter from the editor Happy Birthday LUCY’S Magazine!
Four years ago I started this amazing journey and I am so glad that I did! The memories created and the learning experiences I went through are priceless.
This Beauty Issue is special because it has more pages than any other issue so far and the design/layout is fresh and
edgy. This time I let myself create freely, and fear was left aside. I hope you like the new look!
We are now accepting editorials for our February BEAUTY Print Issue.

an interview with
Carolin Holzhuber by ILIA-SYBIL SDRALLI ‘’Your pair of shoes is a work of art’’-into the creative world of footwear designer Carolin Holzhuber Carolin Holzhuber’s shoes seem to challenge our preconceived ideas about shoes as they combine functionality with a stylistic appeal that makes them look more like sculptural pieces. Her very own definition of the shoe is “a human body related sculptural object» deriving inspiration from impressions, moments, images and even smells-with the human body and its functions always in a centerfold position. Here she shares her ideas about fashion, style and the process of creating each pair from the very beginning.
photographer FRANCESCO ZINNO model LILY GATINS Ilia: What is the best thing about designing shoes? CAROLIN: First of all when I am designing a shoe I don’t think about a shoe. For me it is an object related to the human body. Also I am fascinated by constructions how they are built to carry weight and be steadfast but have at the same time empty spaces. In footwear there is also a lot of construction and these objects should be able to carry the human weight. In the end a shoe is very similar to a chair or even a building. Then I also love the wonderful material leather, the smell, the touch and what you are able to create with this material. To make a shoe step by step by hand is like sculpturing – and this is what I intent to do with my work. I want to create a fusion between art and fashion in form of sculptural footwear. So for me the best about designing footwear is to have the knowledge how to make them to be able to break boundaries and create constructions that might look impossible to wear, to confuse and provoke people.
Ilia: Where do you find inspiration? Images? Music Literature? CAROLIN: I see inspiration everywhere. When I start working on a new collection I collect impressions, moments, smells, images actually really
LUCYâ€™S 12 everything. At this time my senses are even more sensitive and I observe situations more into details. My brain starts acting like a sponge that collects as much information as possible and then when it comes to sketching I squeeze this sponge and filter these collected information. But in my past the human body with all its variation and hidden beauty influenced my work a lot. I always intend to tell as story with my work. For example with my latest collection (UN)COVER I wanted to question why religions and political systems are still able to control how women dress. The aim was to visualize with my footwear pieces what many women vocalize they feel they do not have: a choice in how they wish to be represented and understood. In the collection are pieces that are inspired by women clothed in burkas alongside pieces reminiscent of bare flesh. The designs play with covering and at the same time uncovering the feet and legs.
photographer CATHARINA PAVITSCHITZ
LUCY’S 13 Ilia: What is the process of creating each shoe pair? CAROLIN: I always want to create new structures or to develop unusual forms and shapes. Nevertheless at the same time the connection between shapes, forms and details is important in order to find a balance. I start with little hand sketches. Paper is patient. For drawing I like to use this phrase in a positive way. When designing I let my mind, my creativity free and everything seems possible. If the opposite has not been proven the sketch becomes a real object. I produce every shoe with my own hands in my workshop in East London. I just work together with an Austrian factory called Peak Technology for the carbon fibre soles that I am using for my designs. Carbon fiber is a great material that is light and steadfast at the same time. Therefore it is perfect for to create these conceptual, sculptural and dynamic shoe constructions. Besides this part everything is handcrafted and it can take up to two months to make a shoe including the heels that are slightly complex to make.
Ilia: What defines the ‘’new luxury’’ in accessories, for you? CAROLIN: My products are completely different to many other luxury brands where shoes are still a mass product made in a factory. Each shoe has its own soul and is made with love. I do believe that this makes them closer to being a sculptural object than a just an accessories. I would define the new luxury as objects/products that are only produced on made to order. Therefore each piece is specifically made for this one customer. Also I think it is important that the fashion industry in general stops producing big amounts for stocks. I am against this consume and profit orientated market. Not just in fashion. For me the new luxury or luxury always has been to own less but these few things are in good quality and with a story behind it that makes you feel attached to this items. This connection makes people to take care of their belongings instead of buying new ones.
Ilia: How do you envision the human body in a pair of your shoes? CAROLIN: Footwear for me is an artefact that elevates the wearer on a pedestal like a statue. Some of my pieces are not even walk-able although standing is possible with all. They are a sculpture to decorate space or wearable art with the intension to transform the wearer also into a piece of art. But I also make pieces that are easier to walk in and it makes me happy that there are more and more people who understand, who value and who show interest in wearing my products.

ometimes, life is like a poker game.
Everyone brings something to the table, the things that are unique to them. Then players are given a hand of cards that they can manipulate to the extent of their knowledge of the game. In each person’s hands is a set of cards, where some cards hold more value than others. It’s the player’s job to make everyone think that their cards are better than everyone else’s. As the game commences, the steaks get higher and higher. Player’s start to feel the pressure of the risks associated with the game. To combat this, players develop a poker face. A consistent state that is maintained throughout the game, so the other players can’t catch you in a Complexion is Caudalie and Kevyn Aucoin, Lips and Cheeks are Mac Cosmetics in Lipmix
lie. Hopefully your steadiness can convince the other players to fold and
you get to take home the prize. In life, being vulnerable has ties to weakness. Therefore, most humans don’t want other’s to see through their poker face to find what’s underneath: the broken, the messy, the troubled, or even the blissful. Other’s may try to get you to fold and expose the rawness of your humanity. We learn at an early age to keep our emotions to ourselves in fear of being taken advantage of. But as the steaks begin to rise with each hand dealt, so do feelings of anxiety, stress, or fear. It becomes hard to mask these negative thoughts until we find an outlet for release. In this series, we explore the facades that we put up in our lives and imagine ways to navigate around them. We strive to break away from the need for a poker face in our day to day life. To take each new challenge or struggle as a lesson to be learned, as a stepping stone in the path of life. And ultimately to break the cycle of a life long poker game.

an interview with
Bella Kotak by RAMONA ATKIN
Ramona: Bella creates incredible images with or without flowers, but when she includes flowers in her work the images become breathtaking! Why flowers? When did you discover that you had a passion for flowers? BELLA: I think my passion for nature has been always been there, whether I realized it or not. Looking back my earlier work was always created on location, images captured in tall grass and bright summer flowers. It wasn’t until the summer of 2014 that I discovered how deep my love for the floral world went. At the time was working full time as an architect and one evening after work, I discovered that the florist next to my office would leave their discarded flowers in bins at the front of the store. Of course that then triggered a summer of shamelessly collecting all the useable flowers, bringing them home and organizing shoots with friends. Needless to say, that was the beginning of my love affair! Ramona: What is the story behind the images that go along with the interview? BELLA: This editorial came about while brainstorming concepts with the stylist, Dawn Bell. Dawn, an avid vintage collector has a huge warehouse in Houston full of pieces that she’s curated over the years. We wanted to put together a white shoot and I could already imagine it against a dark brooding backdrop. When I was a child I would read fairytale stories about strong feminine characters and the backdrop would often be the wild woods. I wanted to recreate that concept. My friend Sofia van der Dys kindly offered us her studio. Darcie Teasley brought the makeup concept to life and Susie Flores-DeBlieck created the hair. For this shoot our model was Kimberly McKee. She took direction well and truly brought it to life. Ramona: How do you pick your models? BELLA: When it comes to selecting models I’m always looking for someone who is versatile. Whose face, expression, and pose can embody the characters I love to create and bring them to life.
Ramona: Do you come up with concepts on the spot or do you plan shoots way in advance?
BELLA: It depends. Honestly it’s 50/50. When shooting on location I allow myself to be open to any stories or moments that might exist depending on light, energy, perspective. I like to have all my tools and props around me and half the fun is bringing it all together, seeing how it fits, and capturing the moment as it comes to life in front of me. When it comes to studio shoots I would say a little more planning goes into that. Ramona: Do you have a favorite flower? What makes it your favorite?
BELLA: I often wonder about this. As much as I’ve tried, I really don’t have a favorite flower, however I am partial to peonies, hydrangeas, ranunculuses, and roses. I think it’s because they’re all so versatile, full of variety and colour.

Ramona: Do you create headpieces, gowns and other accessories for your shoots?
BELLA: I did in the earlier days, and sometimes now and then when I have the time, or a particular concept in mind I will piece something together myself. Lately I’ve been fortunate to work with designers from around the world. I love bringing on board other talents as I believe this makes the picture even more impactful. Ramona: How do people react when you ask for their wedding flowers? Do you have any funny stories?
BELLA: Most people don’t mind giving me their flowers if they know they’re going to go into the bin anyway. I once shot a wedding for half my rate in the agreement that I would get their left over wedding flowers. It was totally worth it! Ramona: Thank you for inspiring us with your beautiful work! Do you want to say anything to your
BELLA: Create. Whether it’s photography, styling, makeup,
something that makes you feel good and pursue it with a passion that only you can cultivate. Stay curious, learn, master your craft and all the while, share the beauty of yourself with the world. Don’t do it for money or for fame, but rather do it for yourself. Indulge this part of you and follow the path for the joy and happiness it brings. I promise, it will be worth your while.

For as long as Trace Henningsen can remember, she has had an affinity for all things hair. “It’s something that has always come easy to me so I took my passion and ran straight into the world of professional beauty,” says Henningsen. Currently, Henningsen is a Los Angeles-based stylist who’s established quite a following in the few short years since she’s been working behind the chair. Henningsen calls on an array of advanced cutting and color techniques that she’s perfected—along with a keen artistic eye—to create fashion-forward looks for her devoted clientele that includes celebrities. The result? An effortless shape defined with dimensional-enhancing highlights that lend a playful edge to a client’s total look. “My mantra is ‘create to inspire’ and it’s something I am focused on while designing signature styles worn in real life or on the red carpet,” Henningsen says. Henningsen’s artistic reach has expanded well beyond the salon. She recently launched a namesake handcrafted bridal accessory line (tracehenningsenbridal.com) that’s in high demand. She has become one of the most soughtafter stylists internationally for brides about to say, “I do.” In addition, Henningsen has collaborated on photo shoots,
music videos and advertising campaigns, and her work has been featured in top fashion and beauty magazines. An open mind guides Henningsen as she explores every style—from classic to editorial, while her outstanding work ethic and outgoing personality have made her an industry favorite. “As Chuck Palahniuk so eloquently put it, ‘the unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it,’” Henningsen says. “My most rewarding moments come when I have an idea in my head, then create it exactly how I imagined while sharing it with peers.” left image photographer STEPHANIE WILLIAMS hair TRACE HENNINGSEN makeup KC WITKAMP stylist NIKKI GRATTAN model ALYDA GRACE right image photographer BRIAN ZIFF hair TRACE HENNINGSEN makeup PATRIK TUMEY model KOTDA BERHARDT
SUZANA SANTALAB creative at MASTERED
Suzana Santalab’s career began in 2003 as a freelance makeup artist for renowned cosmetic brands such as Shiseido, Dior, Chanel, Estée Lauder and Kanebo. Her diverse commissions enabled her to gather experience in both the cosmetic and the decorative sector, as well as the opportunity to refine her skills. From 2007 onwards, due to countless bookings of professional photographers, Suzana’s work focused more and more on photo shoots, and she has been particularly busy working on beauty, fashion and
commercial shoots since 2008. Her work appears in catalogues, magazines and international advertising campaigns. For the creation of her mystic looks, Suzana is toning things down while underlining the different aspects of the face by placing highlights and the lowlights. This gives a unique subtlety and genuineness to her creations. both images photographer & edit SILKE SCHLOTZ www.silkephoto.com make up SUZANA SANTALAB www.suzanasantalab.com using SISLEY PARIS model: NIKA @ BRODY BOOKINGS www.brodybookings.com

Maya, our muse for this story, is a brand new face with a mass of naturally curly hair, a smile full
of braces, and a little bit of mischief in her eyes. I decided after I shot her first test that I wanted to try to capture some of that essence in a beauty shoot. I hoped to create a visual theme that would not overwhelm her with heavy styling, and simply asked
my team to come with ideas that would be fresh… fresh skin, fresh application, youthful and delicate. Min-jee suggested a gold theme for makeup and Sabrina presented concepts for smooth subtly shaped hairstyles. For my part I wanted to shoot it clean and fresh as well, no complicated sets or locations… simple, glowing, ethereal. As the visual concept began to form it somehow reminded me of the story of King Midas and how he tragically turned his innocent and beloved daughter to gold, which I felt perfectly suited the underlying theme of our shoot… innocence, touches of gold, magic, purity. For the styling I wanted something more timeless than current fashions, and at the same time didn’t want to have a bare shoulder shoot that might feel too mature for Maya. I decided to create custom pieces to frame the beauty looks, which would be simple and translucent and allow both glowing light and soft shaped shadows. I initially researched a lot of structural artistic fashion designs with interesting details, then turned away and sketched ideas that I thought might work in paper. I bought various materials - tracing paper, rip-stop nylon, etc., which had the desired transparency and stiffness, laid things out on a table and started “draping” on my mannequin. I have some experience sewing, as well as creating numerous props for other shoots in the past, so I knew that I might not get exactly what I envisioned, but I have found that if you go with the properties of the materials at hand you’ll end up with something that works… and often some fun surprises. One of the looks was actually created when I crumpled a finished piece in frustration and then decided I liked it better crinkled (although I had to make two more trying for the best “crinkle” result)! Another came about as I looked at all the cut scraps on the floor and realized that the loose pile had such beauty if I could just figure a way to make it “wearable”. And finally, at the shoot each finished
piece needed to be slit up the back to be slipped on the model without ruining the hair and makeup - no over the head. Plus the delicate nature of the paper pieces meant some very careful posing so as to not have unintentional creases or tears! Fortunately the delicate pieces all lasted long enough to be photographed, and our team is thrilled to have the results featured in Lucy’s Magazine. photographer/stylist (handmade paper and fabric collars) LIZ DUNGATE www.lizdungate.com @lizdungate hair stylist SABRINA FETTERKIND using R+CO www.sabrinafetterkindhair.com @sabrinafetterkindhair makeup artist MIN-JEE MOWAT using MAC www.minjeemowat.com @minjee.mowat makeup artist agency LIZBELL AGENCY www.lizbellagency.com @lbartists model MAYA @_mayagrant model agency MVM AGENCY www.mvmagency.ca @mvmagency

an interview with
Ty McBride, Designer Of “INTENTIONALLY ________.” by SUMMER LEE @summerannelee If you’ve been looking for the perfect shoe - your search has officially ended. Ty McBride founded his brand, “INTENTIONALLY ___________.” (pronounced intentionally blank), in 2014. He had previously honed his passion for shoes while working at top footwear companies, such as Jeffrey Campbell Footwear. Now, the designer for his own shoe brand, Ty’s designs are carried by retailers such as ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Free People, as well as in his own retail store located in Chinatown, Los Angeles. His shoes are built with the fast-paced life of a city girl in mind, as she travels from the office, to the subway, to the party. Ty has branched out from shoes to include hats and apparel under the “INTENTIONALLY ___________.” label, all of which are designed to encourage adding personal style and flair. Continue reading to learn more about some of Ty’s designs, and his vision for his brand!
Summer: In life, what does it mean to you to leave something intentionally blank? TY: For me, this is one hundred percent individual. The things you leave blank, the things you don’t, how you fill in those blanks is what makes yourself unique. What you incorporate into your own personal ____________s is what makes you you, and I love that. I love diversity within humans. I think there are certain things in my own life I choose to leave blank, and it works for me. I like being single - I leave that space blank by my own choice. I think its important that we all have our own blanks, and we fill them or don’t as we see fit. Summer: I’m not sure I’ve ever spotted such an eye-catching pair of boots as the pair you’ve done in collaboration with HALF MAD. The super limited edition High Shine Red Boot is a bright and vibrant cherry red, but the real kicker is the chunky, geometric heels. One heel and sole is yellow and the other is blue. What was it like collaborating with HALF MAD, and what was the inspiration behind the two-toned heels? TY: The collab with Half Mad came about over email. In fact, I have yet to meet them in person. It was for sure very relaxed and matter of fact - a vibe I like. They were ordering some mainline shoes and asked me about an exclusive. I am really drawn to their vibe and the styling of their
site. They mentioned they liked my JACOB boot, which I had done the previous season. From that point they drove the direction for the final product. The color scheme was based on an architectural photo of a color blocked building done in the same colors. After some shipping delays, we received the shoes, and when I opened them I was initially shocked to see them in person. They were really wild for me, for my brand. I was a bit nervous. While I liked them, I was worried they might be too loud for our client. I put them live on our site, in a very limited quantity (but across all the sizes), and we sold out to the pair in 48 hours and have had zero returns. The boot is still for sale on HALF-MAD, but they too didn’t order a large quantity. Summer: In terms of heel height, your shoes are pretty well-grounded. You feature many flats, kitten heels, and chunky heels of usually about two inches. Why do you shy away from super-high heels? TY: After spending my formative years in NYC, I came to be a person very fond of mobility in personal style. I like urban nomad tendencies in styling. I don’t really buy into the concept that heels are the only sexy shoe shape - I think that comes in many shapes and sizes, and many formats. Whenever we introduce heels that are 3.5” and higher, they simply don’t sell. They seldom perform for us. We are finding that the brand is selling primarily in very urban spots, in dense city areas where people move, take transit, walk, and function 24/7 - we want to make sure that they fit into busy schedules and styles that can be adapted for a myriad of settings based on how you style them. Summer: What step in the design process do you most enjoy? TY: I love seeing the first pull overs of new prototypes. They are mostly never correct, and are imperfect, but it is that first tangible sample that kind of sets the tone, sets my direction and my intention for the next range. Summer: I fell in love with the FR bootie at first sight. The base of the bootie is a pale, natural tone, and they are covered from pointed tip to kitten heel in black raffia pom poms. What statement do these booties make about the wearer? TY: The base of the FR bootie is an old boot my factory made in the early 2000’s. It’s a classic ankle boot style which was common in that era. By combining that boot with this typically spring-like raffia, I wanted to create something that spoke to the seasonless vibe we are currently seeing in style and in nature. Seasons are shifting, temperatures are fluctuating, things are different than before with the climate and how it responds. With this boot, I wanted to take a traditionally fall shape, and re-style it in an unexpected material. The person who wears this boot is, for me, very style forward, fun and truly about the details. The boot has sold well for us, which makes me happy. I love it when a non-traditional item can get some shoe fame!
LUCY’S 106 Summer: What is the greatest compliment a customer could give you about your shoes? TY: For me, simply having clients become regulars is the best compliment I could receive. I am the head of a very small team. We make mistakes, errors, and to be frank, we fuck things up from timeto-time. But at the end of the day, I am focused on the product and the brand and making it better. This means creating updates to client faves, but also encouraging them to try something new we are working on - all the while committing to a price and quality that they have come to trust us for. Without our clients, we would be nothing, and I wouldn’t have the vehicle to make my dream come true, so when I see our shoe on the foot, on the street, I get very excited. I feel like what I am doing has purpose.

Summer: You’ve released a sneaker called OLIVOR for men. Do you plan to design a sneaker for women? TY: I have struggled with our mens range. It’s cute and great, and has a point of view, but at the end of the day, I don’t have the time to focus on it. I can’t build it. I’m not super keen to compete in the sneaker market for women, or for men really - it’s not my forte and it’s a very branded game that I am not really into fighting for a piece of.
Summer: You’ve recently released a winter
capsule of “INTENTIONALLY ___________.” apparel, which you describe as non-conformist and androgynous. What would you say to convince someone who wears tight, formfitting clothing that they should try your onesize, unisex line? Summer: What are some qualities of the perfect lounging-around shoe versus those of a perfect going-out shoe? TY: When I ask my clients this, they always want comfort in both venues of footwear selects. But I know that time-and-time again, for a going-out shoe, our fans love a compliment. For me, our shoes are based on how you style them, how you
TY: A lot of our pieces are oversized and very gender neutral - but not all. We don’t have any issues with tight form fitting items, of course, we love the shapes they create, but our entire vibe is about moving, living and being on the go! Our apparel pieces are an extension of the vision. They are meant to be pieces that the owner can work into their arsenal of favorites.
wear them. Styles like HALF MAD, and FR are fun and eye catching, but some of our styles are very quiet, sleek, and minimal - but styled right, are just as seductive in their own way. I love tiny details, and strange unexpected combos.
item from Fall 2018 is the JANET boot. It’s super classic, has a nice sturdy heel, and is made of neoprene. It is great for office or night, brunch or something dressy. I love how long this boot makes the leg look, and how easy it is to make it your own, style-wise.
Summer: Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? TY: I am so bad with resolutions. To be really honest, the last few years I have tried to make a really attainable goal so I can easily treat myself. For the past four years my entire life has been the brand, building it, and focusing on it without hesitation or fault. Maybe this year, I can focus a resolution on balance, or on something very personal to my own life - getting to a better place personally. A guy can’t just think about mules his entire life! It’ll make you crazy.
