Disturbing the Peace

March 26th, 2015 Posted by Irene » Post a comment

Fear has no place in a revolution and the latest issue of i-D Magazine sheds a spotlight on the courageous “Generation Z” leaders of today. “The Activist Issue” focuses on the movement towards a better world and the feminist, punk rock girl group Pussy Riot tells their story and use of social media to spread their message. Three years after Nadya (Nadezhda Tolokonnikova) and Masha (Maria Alyokhina) were arrested for their punk prayer performance in a church, they are fighting against injustice in their motherland, Russia and beyond. Photographer Bruce Weber captures them beautifully exposed and revealing.

Jackets Required

March 25th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

Fashion’s preoccupation with the seventies becomes the ideé fixe for W Magazine’s new Mario Sorrenti shoot that highlights Saint Laurent muse Grace Hartzel alongside a bleached blonde Jaime Ross. Melanie Ward adopts the glamrock eclecticism of Slimane’s LA playground and the story’s creed: “Jackets required. The rest is at your discretion” means there’s no room for staid convention. On that note, Ward styles the duo into disparate, beatnik-chic playmates mixing in plenty of Saint Laurent. Aaron de Mey adds a touch of mod focusing on bold lashes and James Pecis tousles their hair to appear as unattended to as their abandoned hideout. See the full editorial out on newsstands right now.

Check out more from the April issue on wmagazine.com.

Spring Forward

March 24th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia comment (1)

Hercules Universal celebrates the “Endless Affair” with their latest issue, offering a clean and crisp vision of Spring/Summer 2015. Four black-and-white covers kick it off, featuring English actor Jeremy Irvine by Ben Weller, French rocker Marlon Magnée by Hedi Slimane, and models Alessio Pozzi and Austin Scoggin by, respectively, Daniel Riera and Bruno Staub. Social-media sensation Lucky Blue Smith stars in a vivid feature by Giampaolo Sgura, while Pozzi and Arran Sly look sharp in summer whites by Riera. Felix Gesnouin stars in an introspective story from Philippe Vogelenzang, and another editorial by Sgura peeks at the artistic life.

Staub’s collections feature, shot on Fire Island in gorgeous monochrome, features a passel of summer-ready Soul Artist Management faces, including Doug Pickett, Blaine Cook, Sean Harju, Brian Shimansky, Henry Watkins and Cory Bond, all of whom also appear in an accompanying video, premiering here on Models.com. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the issue below.

Russian Spring

March 23rd, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comment (1)

As winter thaws it gives way to fresh editorials and dewy looks. Meghan Collison helps with that changeover for Numero Russia’s April 2015 cover story by An Le. A very vernal Meghan ushers in the more hospitable weather with wettish hair and satiny, porcelain skin on the mock tundra set (minus the frigid bite). The fox-eyed icon poses in carefree spring looks styled by Phuong My alongside a half dog/half wolf sidekick. The storybook-esque editorial reminds us how good it’s going to feel to shed those winter layers.

VEOIR 4: Body & Art Issue

March 23rd, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

For the fourth issue of up and coming magazine VEOIR, fashion is romanticized as a stark accompaniment to bare form. The Body & Art issue features seductively imagined images by photographers like Ryan Michael Kelly, William Lords and Léa Nielsen and includes an interview with James Franco. A sleek Alana Zimmer fronts the issue in a high gloss breast plate styled by Nick Nelson. Continuing the motif William Lords makes fashion a second skin with designer pieces painted on models Jennifer Pugh and Kristel Van Valkenhoef. Throughout the zine, the stone-faced gazes of the models and spartan styling reveals in the shadows the edgy attitude of VEOIR. Check out our exclusive preview below.

New Day

March 19th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia comments (2)

Change is in the air. GQ Style UK celebrates a new editor—former fashion director Luke Day— and a new season with their Spring/Summer 2015 issue, out on newsstands today. Matthew Brookes contributes a retro look back, with a playful fashion story celebrating Sixties Ivy League style— think faded windbreakers, perfectly creased khakis, and battered Converses. Edward Wilding, Andy Walters, and Sacha Legrand play the preppy part, looking classically cool and contemporary all at once. Take an exclusive look at the story and accompanying video below.
