The May 2014 issue of Vogue Nederland turns monastic virtue on its head in service of a 6-page jewelry editorial featuring Iris Van Berne photographed by Paul Bellaart. Titled “City Monk,” the Saskia Van Langvelde-styled story puts forward the idea of a metropolitan devotee to endless chains and inner-peace inducing golden amulets. Never mind the tenuity of the metaphor, however Iris wears the jewelry exquisitely and is herself worthy of ascetic devotion.
