The Rue Magazine Issue 5 editorial really stands out, despite the fact that the publication is relatively new. Short and sweet, it is extremely well-shot. It focuses on the magazine's summer theme of travel and adventure, although in a more leisurely and luxurious manner. Full of flirty fashion and romantic shots, it fits in with the digital publication's super-cute persona.

Shot by fashion photographer Lou Mora at the Chateau Marmont (in James Dean's former favorite bungalow, according to Refinery 29!), the Rue Magazine Issue 5 photo spread shows one way to enjoy the remaining warm weeks of summer. Inspired by the sensuality of French New Wave cinema, there is a hint of a cool West Coast style as well. Considering that Rue Magazine is based in San Francisco, it would be strange if there wasn't.
