Beauty according to… Isamaya Ffrench.

It’s hard to distill Isamaya Ffrench into being just a ‘make-up artist’. One minute she’s transforming herself into a grotesque tentacled beast, the next she’s recreated the delicate glass tears of a Man Ray photograph. The result is unsettling and exquisite, glamorous and eldritch, otherworldly and at times, just plain bonkers.

Captured by Juergen Teller, we meet Isamaya in her studio, surrounded by objects, tools, and obscure ephemera she’s collected along the way. She also speaks to the artist Jordan Wolfson about finding depth in ugliness, interrogates the notion of femininity with the actress Gwendoline Christie, and shares why she’ll never get bored of the beauty industry.

Elsewhere in the issue, Fara Homidi and Paloma Elsesser dissect what makes a brand, Pierre Dinand reflects on designing the industry’s most iconic perfume bottles, and Pharrell Williams reframes skincare as self-care. Meanwhile, Cho Giseok pays homage to the cultural history of Korean beauty; Takahashi Homma and Tomihiro Kono explore Japanese street style through the language of hair; and Liv Liberg and Ana Takahashi reflect on the growing pains of youth.
