Opened the front door to take out the recycling, my neighbour up stairs flat, who's convinced I brought swine flu into the building put a package on the door step. Opened it up, its the bumper advanced preview copy of Love Magazine N 2. Under 21's only (ranging from 12-21), inspired editorial dedicated to the international youts dem, inspired because the young folk featured come from different backgrounds, cultures, communities, lifestyles.

Inspired because LOVE's not a teen glossy, its aimed at grown folk but not doubt its cool status appeals to all on the fashion zeitgeist. Here's a few of my favourites and couple of pages of
The Cool stuff..

Coco Sumner singer / songwriter, 18 (Sting & Trudie's baby girl)
These get so much bad press that I love it when the good stuff comes to the surface.. hearing about positive young folk, going about there daily teenage lives doing what they love with passion. For a moment I wish those years of unpredictable high and lows back again, imaging that at 12!! I could have been together enough to get it together, have the confidence to believe in my own abilities have fun and making it, whatever guise it takes, work.
