Photography: A celebration of the humble pocket in new Gentlewoman

It’s no huge revelation that The Gentlewoman has an eye for stylish and interesting visuals, but even by the magazine’s own sky-high standards this shoot from Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes – styled by Sam Logan – is pretty ruddy special. The idea is simple enough – to celebrate the humble pocket and the beautiful detailing which separate the best garments from the rest, but in these super-talented hands it becomes something more than the sum of its parts, thanks to the use of shadow and confidently single-minded focus, which stimulate almost lurid fixation.
