Model LINNEA OSTERBERG and FILIP HANNING at Stockholmsgruppen Models
Above introduction Ellen Coyle

Linnea. Simply her. The only girl in a sea of boys. With gentle glances and an artistic soul, a diamond among our precious gems. The star of our Spring Summer issue's Girls by Boys feature, her Scandinavian femininity becomes the focus together with boyfriend Filip at her side. Representing young love, theirs is a world our readers get to escape in for eight pages in our 'Young Hearts' issue; to experience the love we all want or remember moments we once had.

Inside the charm and grandeur of her Stockholm home, Linnea and Filip are photographed by young photographer Jacek Szopik. At only 21, the Polish Born and Stockholm based photographer, has a unique ability to capture those moments that speak to that little deeper place inside us, beautifully capturing the flourishing young love between our Scandinavian Youths. Within each image, a truthful glimpse of what it’s like to be young and in love. Oh, these treasured moments. Soft lighting and black and white treatments find intimate moments between the two lovers. Jacek effortlessly freezing genuine love on film.

Youthful fashion is chosen perfectly by RL Pearsall. Delicate lace slips mix with biker style leather jackets, giving a seamless balance between love and lust. It makes no difference whether Linnea is dressed in baggy trousers by Under the Same Sun, a pastel pink jacket from Stuttenheim or the jumper dress of Fiorucci with “Everybody is a star” stitched on in gold. Filip loves her regardless. She is his star.

Experience the love of Linnea and Filip, beyond the brief teasers below, inside Issue 12 ‘Young Hearts’, which is available to buy online and in selected stores now.
