KING KONG Magazine – Issue 01
Mariano Vivanco shoots the cover story for KING KONG Magazine’s launch issue.
The magazine that declares ‘we don’t deal in trends, trends are over tomorrow’ has opted to show flesh over fashion with Cierra Skye flanked by an army of naked male models including Trevor Signorino!
The cover story, styled by Nicola Formichetti, explores the mythical story of Scylla – a monstrous sea goddess that lived on one side of a narrow channel of water, opposite its counterpart Charybdis. The two sides of the strait were within an arrow’s range of each other—so close that sailors attempting to avoid Charybdis would pass too close to Scylla and vice versa.
