It’s always great to see talented people collaborate with their equally skilled colleagues—it adds something genuine to the editorial landscape. With Jesse Somera of Mad Thirsty behind the lens and Todd Pearce on styling duty, Samuel Larsen is in good hands for his ‘Lost Angeles’ photo story. Showing us he can pull off the 90’s heartthrob look without a hitch, Sam fits snuggly into the role, proving that with the right styling and editorial direction – any guy can go from sweet crooner to brooding badboy. If he ever does get lost in LA, we’ll be more than happy to show him around.

MORE THAN AN ADORNMENT: MINT COLLECTION

A familial pastime and a basket full of neglected gold watches – ones that would only feel appropriate on the set of Miami Vice – are the inspiration behind the latest pieces in Mint Collection. Jacqueline Schneider, a public relations entrepreneur with an obsession for mint green, mixed her fervor for DIY with the challenge of thrift store transformations, and decided to add jewelry designer to her resume.

The collection has an emphasis on functionality and showcases one-of-a-kind statement pieces that carry some history–using everything from shoe clips to cuff links, the items are made for those who enjoy form and purpose, with a dose of nostalgia.
