Fanny | David Bellemere | Treats! Spring 2011 Issue #1
Comparing David Bellemere's 'Fanny' for Treats! inaugural issue to a pre-launch editorial of Tony Kelly's 'The Clinic' -- now called 'SAS' in print -- gives readers a key insight into the wide range of images that make up the debut launch.
Treats! is a New Eroticism breakthrough that has nothing to do with Hugh Hefner and Playboy.
Treats! is what bitchy women like me have asked for when we wonder out loud why American Playboy has always been so puerile, when Playboy France showcases beautiful, sensual, fashionable women and high quality content as if they go together.
Treats! is for sexy grownups with a wide range of taste and sophistication even at age 21.
Treats! is glamorous, even when it's gritty.
If Carine Roitfeld wanted to launch an erotic magazine, she would do Treats! Carine would add at least one editorial that disturbs or provokes. There's no Steven Klein effect in the first issue, which is not a complaint but a fact.
Treats! is a masterful editorial accomplishment, one that I will write about in more depth for my Sensually Yours column.
The fact that Treats! is produced in LA is very exciting and a shot of adrenalin for a woman fighting for women's rights internationally and for not losing our current rights in America.
In a country that struggles infinitely to produce positive images of female sexuality, Treats! opens up Pandora's box beautifully.
Any new magazine that reproduces Terry ONeill's photograph of Raquel Welch on the cross as its first interior image after Steve Shaw's publisher page photo 'gets it'.
I give Treats! an A for Attitude; an A for Imagery; an A for Imagination and Diversity; and an A+ for Quality. This is a fashionable look at sensual, mostly naked women wearing great accessories in three-quarters of its gorgeous pages.
Cartier, Gucci, Louis Vuitton come on down! Treats! is for you. Anne
Order Treats! online at website. Treats! is worth every $ of its $20 plus shipping subscription price, and I will buy it should I fall out of favor with the editorial team.
