Thomas Persson, editor in chief of Acne Paper, has got the ladies on his mind—leading ladies, to be exact. That’s why the theme of Issue 15, out tomorrow is “The Actresses.” “We have been a bit against the grain from most magazines; we have a different point of view and don’t focus on celebrity as much. We are more intrigued by theater, movies, drama, etc., so I thought that would be something to focus on,” offered Persson of the new issue, which features Isabelle Huppert masquerading as Greta Garbo on its Andreas Larsson-lensed cover (left). “But it is such a big topic,” he added, “so we narrowed it down to just the actresses that have intrigued us over the years.”
That list includes Meryl Streep, Isabelle Adjani, Gena Rowlands, Diane Keaton, Julia Roberts, Anouk Aimée, Julianne Moore, and Michelle Pfeiffer (among others), many of whom are presented in a thirty-page photo portfolio by Brigitte Lacombe that comprises little-before-seen snaps from 1988 to 1999 that she pulled from her archive (below). We couldn’t help but notice that many of the ladies are of a “certain age.” “Maturity doesn’t scare me,” explained Persson. “Just the opposite: It points to the quality and longevity of their careers, and it is re-affirming to see that these legends are still getting major roles.

The L.A. based line LnA—so named for its founders, Lauren (L) Alexander and April (A) Leight—made its name on soft, well-cut, basic tees. Echt L.A. style, in other words. But no Angelena worth her ZIP code would be caught dead without her shades, too, so the brand’s new extension makes perfect sense: For Spring ’11, LnA is debuting its first sunglass shape, the Rialto. (And speaking of ZIP codes, each pair is engraved with 90291, the Venice ZIP; they’re handmade there.) The frames (inset) are made in collaboration with Garrett Leight, son of Oliver Peoples founder Larry Leight, and inspired by eighties style icons—not the hard-driving punkers like Joan Jett, but breezier heroines like Diane Keaton and Susan Sarandon. (Keaton wore a very similar pair in ’77′s classic Annie Hall, left.) They’ll come in at under $200 when they hit stores and LNAClothing.com in February, but those who can’t wait can pre-order at Venice’s A Kinney Court now. They come in tortoise, black, and a variety of pop colors, including a magenta pair with—what else?—rose-colored lenses.
