Today's issue of The National's LUXURY magazine features our 17th century Dutch portrait-inspired editorial, shot by the talented Tim Hill and James Aubrey in East London.

Our model Helena McKelvie is a new face on the London fashion scene, but has already been shot by Rankin for Hunger Magazine and was named Topshop's muse.
