I think we can all agree that outchea in Skattieville we like things, but we like nothing more than when our beloved friends get together and create magic just to be creating magic, especially when they do so exclusively for Skattie. Our dear friend Juanes (IL Retallack to you) got together with our friend Lindiwe Suttle and stylist Jared Ethan Blake and hooked up this flame right here for us. In IL Retallack’s own words: “I met Lindiwe at this event and I really liked her style. So we started a conversation about shooting a really dark and sexy editorial based on her style and her whole aesthetic. Jared and I contacted a new designer called Charisse Grobler to use one of her pieces. And also we contacted The Reserve at The Taj and they allowed us to shoot there. The shoot was basically a group of creative people coming together.” We’re lovin’ it. Can more creative people get together and create more hot shit please? Thank you. As you were.
