OVERDUE Print Issue #004 ‘Film’

At a time when we are find­ing our­selves in front of the screen more than ever, it felt apt to bring you our fourth issue based on a sub­ject very close to our hearts at OVERDUE – film.

Film trans­ports us into anoth­er world, a world dic­tat­ed by art and sen­so­ry involve­ment. It evokes emo­tion through colour, land­scape, a glance – each frame becom­ing a paint­ing in itself. On the rare occa­sion I find myself hav­ing time to enjoy a cin­e­mat­ic expe­ri­ence, I have always ensured it is one of mean­ing; a film that express­es art through the director’s eye. It was a nat­ur­al pro­gres­sion to explore our team’s love of film, and to share our admi­ra­tion of the tru­ly great cre­ators of mov­ing image.

Film ref­er­ences have been com­mon­place with­in all of our sto­ries since our debut. How­ev­er, it was impor­tant to me that we chal­lenged our­selves fur­ther with this issue. We sought out obscure, less­er-known films and art­house cre­ations, rather than cult Hol­ly­wood block­busters. Late last year, I gave each of our team 28 films to watch over the Christ­mas peri­od – films I have loved, watched numer­ous times, ref­er­enced and want­ed to bring to our forth­com­ing issue. I’m pleased to say that they all rose to the chal­lenge.

OVERDUE has grown tremen­dous­ly through our Cre­ative Direc­tor, Tess Sav­ina and our Fash­ion Direc­tor, Natal­ie Yuk­sel. With aston­ish­ing­ly tal­ent­ed teams curat­ed by the afore­men­tioned, this issue shines brighter than ever. It also brought me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to shoot in Paris, some­thing I have been long­ing to do for some time. For a week I held back tears result­ing from the beau­ty of my sur­round­ings, and my sheer joy in tak­ing a trip that result­ed in two dream edi­to­ri­als. My heart still remains in Paris – a jour­ney I will remem­ber for­ev­er.

With every issue I am more and more indebt­ed to our awe-inspir­ing team for bring­ing our vision to life, and this one is no excep­tion. With our recent growth, our expan­sion in Paris and the ever-grow­ing tal­ents, brands and incred­i­ble imagery, I have nev­er been proud­er of our team. As always with every issue we cre­ate, I am eter­nal­ly grate­ful. Thank you all so much.
