The fashion industry is obsessed with everything pretty and beautiful, so it’s always refreshing when you come along an editorial that leaves you slightly disturbed and asking yourself WTF?, like the one in Let’s Panic’s first edition did. According to the bi-annual glossy, founded by photographers Greg Kadel and Aaron Ward, it is “committed to exploring the creative. Each story is a collaboration between editors and contributors which result in a cultural statement of individuality that transcends the ordinary and allows opportunities to evolve in an arena free of constraints.” Yeah, all pretentious babbling aside, I just really like how Malgosia Bela, the Polish model shot here, seems to have gotten (almost) free of any vanity, making funny faces and rolling her eyes until there is only the white left, thus creating some bizarre and uncommon fashion pictures. Inspirations for the styling range from football gear to Japanese samurai clothing.
