Again we share with you a selection of photographs portraying famous people from the past. The photo above shows Ernest Hemingway’s passport photo from 1923. View the first edition here.
One of the photographers we admire the most, Guy Aroch envisions New York as a 1970s-hued dreamscape in NOWNESS’s short “The Magic Gap”. It’s part of NOWNESS’ weekly #DefineBeauty series spotlighting the different aesthetic tropes surrounding body image. Guy Arochs contribution evolves around an abstract look at the much-documented thigh-gap obsession.

It’s SETURDAY again. This time we channel our inner Kavinsky and hit the road for an intense “Night Drive” with tracks provided by Chromatics, Daft Punk, Justice, Washed Out, Chrystal Castles and many more. Put on your driving gloves and get going.
The first menswear collection we saw this season at Berlin Fashion Week was by Ivan Mandzukic, whose SS14 collection made a strong impression on us already. For AW14 he drew inspiration from Alejandro Jodorowskys classic “Der Heilige Berg” from 1973. It’s interesting how Ivan transforms his initial ideas into little details that are subtly attached to his collections. Looking at it in terms of fashion as a form of art, his inspirations don’t speak “loud” enough through the pieces – but at the current state of menswear, this is just natural. His collection splits the difference between precise and casual with a creamy and soft colour palette. (more…)
29/10 - We are celebrating one year of Whitelies Magazine. We reached out to over 150.000 people from all over the world. Won the trust of 1450 loyal Facebook fans and got the chance to raise awareness for a new kind of aesthetic in fashion and photography through visually pleasing content which created an emotional impact with the readers.
The project which started out as a pure fashion magazine has connected with the creative scene on many different layers. We started to think outside of the fashion box and experienced how aesthetics and trends from the fashion world translate in photography, architecture, art, music and design. It’s all about the bigger picture.We want WhiteLies Magazine to get bigger but without losing our minimalist and high quality mentality and most importantly by maintaining the amateur-charms. Every magazine is powered by people who have specialised in this subject, it’s an important subject that we promote younger, unknown artists at the beginning of their careers and give them the chance to speak up through the magazine.
This is the part where it can become interesting for you:
We are relaunching the magazine soon with a new, better design. And we are looking for contributors from allover the world. Photographers, Artists, Designers, Musicians….or even average university students that share the same aesthetics as we do. We are especially looking for contributors in: Paris, London, Milan, Florence, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Cape-Town, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Antwerp, Reykjavik and South-France. This of course is an unpaid position, giving people that are passionate about the same topics we are passionate about the opportunity to promote and showcase their work in the magazine. Attending events in the name of WhiteLies Magazine, gaining experience in the field of editing an online magazine and useful connections are all part of the deal. Also fashion passionate people, wherever located, that have a talent for writing good articles about interesting subjects are more than welcome.
So if you are interested in working with us on this project, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss further details.
I guess there is only one thing left to do.
We say THANK YOU.

While milan fashion week is known for it’s showcase of elegant womenswear for a classy-chic woman, the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 season in milan is boldly dominated by modern takes on sportswear. With so much designers jumping on the same train, it’s of great importance to make a difference. (more…)
“Metropolitan style with Hippy-Chic spirit” read the show-notes of Simonetta Ravizza’s runway show. While the “hippy-chic spirit” has already arrived in the metropolitan style years ago, it was a theme well executed with a very elegant and modern twist. It was all about laid-back luxurious femininity when stunning models in ultraprecious materials walked down the runway. (more…)
Paramount pictures has finally dropped the trailer for the upcoming Martin Scorsese movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo Di Caprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill about a New York stockbroker refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration. The story is based on the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort. Since Gatsby wasn’t as good as we expected, at least we have another Di Caprio movie to look forward to this year. The trailer also features Kanye West’s new track “Black Skinhead” of Yeezus. Perfect fit.
The people at Last Nights Party launched a new project. A tumblr blog called “Notes from the Underground”. Beautiful eccentric photography documented with stories of the nightlife. It’s actually hard to describe what you are experiencing there, but check it out. Bronques you are a genius. (more…)
It was just some days ago that we featured New York based photographer Sofia Malamute on our magazine, and today she strikes back with a Paris F/W 2013 Tribute Video for V Magazine. Captured in her iconic black-white style along with intense music by Pascal Moscheni and Luigi Carillo it creates a goosebumps-feeling.
