The couple launched the issue at a party Wednesday night in Cannes. Rubik described the issue as "more of a book than a magazine" and said that its ad-free pages are dedicated to women photographers including Annie Leibovitz, Ellen von Unwerth, and Corrine Day.
"It's mainly a fashion magazine, but with an erotic twist," Rubik explained, adding that she took inspiration from '70s issues of Viva, Playboy, and Penthouse. "I think it's balanced quite well. There's a lot of fashion. The stylists had a lot of liberty to play around with clothes, and there was no list of credits they had to follow or anything like that."
In fact, whoever styled the cover photo — which Knezevic tweeted yesterday — opted not to use clothes at all. The same goes for a 15-second teaser video clip for the issue called Kiss, seen below.
Rubik and Knezevic started working on 25 in 2009, when one of Knezevic's friends acquired it and asked him for help. Knezevic is now the magazine's editor-in-chief and creative director, and Rubik serves as fashion and art director. Take a look at some of their work below.
