Here at Spirit & Flesh we are devoted to the coverage of art, entertainment, fashion and culture and how they all, combined, make our lives richer.

Issue number six, Mystery, is no exclusion, It’s a visual feast and engaging dialogues with stories on the arts, fashion, culture and literature. This beautifully crafted edition of original content features two covers with leading Hollywood stars, Oscar Nominees, Sharon Stone and Djimon Hounsou.

In her cover fashion story, SunriseSharon Stone shows us how she maintains her provocative beauty. Gracing another cover, Djimon Hounsou talks about pursuing your dreams and respecting where you’ve come from.

The 224 page issue features thought-provoking and stimulating visual essays with makers and shakers of our global cultural world.

In his interview, literary giant Salman Rushdie discusses the mystery of identity; artists such as Hermann Nitsch, Ross Bleckner and Julian Schnabel invite you to be a part of their creative process, as captured by photographer Robert Banat. Ellen Von Unwerth and Cynthia Altoriso take us on a fanciful picnic with A Beast And His Beauties, and new clothing designer Ayanat Ksenbai, reveals fashion line whose colors are in full summertime bloom. Stylist Freddie Leiba shows us why black holds its mystery in fashion and why we still care about Gustav Klimt’s The Woman in Gold by photographer Torkil Gundanson. Have you been to Brazil recently? Photographer Olaf Heine‘s images of the country will make you want to go, and with upcoming Olympic Games in Rio, you might want to book your trip sooner then later. Meanwhile, photographer Federico Pignatelli takes us to The Place Where It All Happened, a sensual mystery, which you’ll never want to solve. Spring is a time where you may want to change your fragrance, or hairstyle, or makeup. Spirit & Flesh delivers, with a story about a new fragrance company, Thirdman, along with a profile with a beauty expert Edward Bess, while photographer Kailas illustrates how summer all about Shimmer. In her interview jewelry designer Ella Gafter shines a light on true secrets to success, and clothing designer Norisol Ferrari charts her own course through stormy creative environment. Nigel Parry shares a gallery of portraits of cultural icons who are no longer with us and we can only imagine what we have lost with their passing, but as you turn a page, a gallery of new gods emerge in the story by photographer Kah Poon and artist Daniela Codarcea Kamiliotis, in Pantheon.

With all that said, we are truly looking forward for you, dear Reader, to experience MYSTERY issue yourself.
