Israeli and Palestinian food is ripe with flavor and enticing intricacies. Intersections of trade routes led to the interchange of ingredients and that trend is still apparent today. Divine Food embarks on a culinary journey from the North, with its temperate climate and succulent vegetables; to Tel Aviv, where young chefs find new ways to interpret culinary traditions; to Jerusalem, a city of pilgrimage that boasts a myriad of staple dishes; and to the South where nomadic lifestyles inspire desert cuisine.
Private paradises nestled in the backyards of homes. Rooftops that act as community gardens. Edible patches of beauty hidden within city blocks. Evergreen shows the verdant aesthetic statement that allows city dwellers to bring nature back into the every day and quenches urban gardening desires. Living with plants is mutually beneficial; beyond the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen, leaves, flowers, and stems bring a warm and individual charisma to any space. Throughout this engaging collection of projects, urban gardening is complimented by a softer side: balconies that add an extra relaxing touch to a morning cup of coffee, flowers that provide calming fragrances throughout the home, or romantic blooms that feed the soul rather than fill a plate.
A thing of beauty, the saying goes, lasts forever. In this spirit, V Magazine kicks off 2017 by celebrating fashion's biggest models—Kendall Jenner, Carolyn Murphy, Joan Smalls, Lara Stone, Amber Valletta, and Ellen Rosa—photographed by Mario Testino for their cover story, wearing the latest fashion with the most permanent accessory: tattoos. Additionally, in a special edition supplement, Hedi Slimane unveils the first installation from his series, "New York Diary," an ode to the larger-than-life personalities who have made V's hometown the Greatest City in the World.
