Members Stefano Colombini and Alberto Albanese, collectively known as Scandebergs, are celebrated for their vibrant aesthetic sensibility. With a background in creative direction (Colombini) and fine art and photography (Albanese), it’s easy to see how the duo landed on such a cinematic signature. Their work has been featured in Vogue and Time, and seen in projects for brands including Prada, Versace and Fendi.   

For our June issue, Colombini and Albanese explore the notion of future gazing with the complex mix of emotions that entails – uncertainty, wanderlust and hope. They also compile a collection of their favourite personal, fashion and editorial photographs for Soho House.  

‘We tried to depict this feeling of anticipation and trepidation related to what the future is going to bring us, as well as a sense of lucid dreaming related to this very surreal present moment,’ says Colombini.
