For VOGUE SCANDINAVIA, still life expert Gustav ALMESTAL c/o BIRD PRODUCTION staged elegant and sparkling accessories, shoes and bags.
Gustav Almestål’s visual language is instantly recognizable thanks to his innovative and personal approach to color, lighting, and composition. His images are often infused with a surreal sense of humor as well as a keen sense for details which becomes especially noticeable in his subtle use of art historical references. A recurring theme is his interest in philosophy and aesthetics, particularly concerning life, death, and decay – classic subjects in the historical tradition of still life – bringing a multi-dimensional quality to his images.
After living and working in London for several years, Gustav Almestål is now based in Stockholm and can be booked via BIRD.

Needless to say, Pierpaolo is one of the creatives who inspired us to dedicate The Greatest #22 to the concept of ‘protection’. In his words, ‘Although the tradition of ‘bottega dell’arte’ (in English ‘art workshop’, E.D.) was born right here, people have forgotten how important workshops are to share an experience and, of course, learn the trade […]
We founded a school to guarantee a future for haute couture, basing it on the exchange between young and older people who’ve worked with us for a very long time. By the way, a lady who is retired told me that going back to the atelier to teach young minds gave meaning to her path, and I find this amazing both on a human and personal level’. The Protection Issue features our conversations with Pierpaolo Piccioli, Jordan Luca, Max Schiller, Andrea Zanatelli, Shaquille-Aaron Keith, Sonny Hall, Luka Sabbat and much more, ...”
