Client Turns 5!

November 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

British menswear magazine CLIENT Magazine has always been known for its elegance and subtlety, from the crisp black-and-white photography to the clean-lined design, so it’s no surprise that they would celebrate their fifth anniversary without undue fanfare. Instead of an advertisement for themselves, the latest issue keeps the spotlight, as always, on the models within, starting with cover boys Mats Van Snippenberg and Erik van Gils, who help lead off the NEXT Model Army, a feature of many of the agency’s notable faces, from Kit Butler and Paul-Alexandre Haubtmann to Carl Axelsson and Lucky Blue Smith, all of them shot over the course of a day by Ian Cole in the London offices. “Ian was great,” says Smith of the experience. “He let me make silly faces, so that made it super fun.”

The rest of the issue is an appropriate celebration of what the magazine sees as “unconventional British menswear.” Rebecca Naen and Daisy Deane take on outerwear in film strips, while Daniel Fraser and Dee Moran offer an unconventional look at print-heavy streetwear. Rokas Darulis and Kevin Kim capture Simon Fitskie in the season’s surprising textures, and Matthew Bell stars in a knitwear feature on a windswept beach photographed by Rodrigo Carmuega and styled by Cristina Planelles. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

Dazed Makes Magic

November 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The winter issue of Dazed & Confused magazine asks “Do you believe in magic?” It would seem so from the singular talent of cover photographer Collier Schorr who oft turns the ordinary into magic. Here done twofold as she lenses the already unordinary faces of Julia Nobis and Rianne van Rompaey for an inside Louis Vuitton portfolio styled by Robbie Spencer. The mix of simple color play and Collier’s seemingly effortless eye turns out a pair of undisguised, model-centric covers.

Robbie Spencer, Creative Director at Dazed added insight into the cover story saying, “For us, Julia and Rianne represent a new generation of supermodel and are redefining what the term even means. They are enduring and chameleon-like and represent a shift in casting aesthetics within the fashion industry today. We wanted to portray Julia and Rianne in a more real and stripped back way for the covers compared to how they are usually seen in magazines, and as such they were the perfect subjects for Collier. Wearing Louis Vuitton’s Cruise collection and Collier’s personal baseball caps, we focused on their personality and the way they would wear the collection. Models are so often used as mere blank canvases to turn into different characters, but we felt Julia and Rianne didn’t need any make up or distractions. They are both so unique and have such a strong presence in front of the camera.”

The rest of the issue, out next week, features Tinashe, Coco Gordon Moore, Nicolas Ghesquière, Beth Ditto, Anjelica Houston, Rila Fukushima and more.

She’s a Day Tripper

November 16th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For V Magazine‘s latest issue, the defining face of the aughts Gemma Ward brings the season’s most boho to Brighton Beach in a fashion-fueled day trip. The Aussie icon hardly blends in as photographed by Ben Toms amongst her seaside setting looking vibrant in pairings by Robbie Spencer. Lightly layered looks don’t single out the seasons, and unfussy, windblown hair by Tomo Jidai just makes sense. Another day at the beach, just with lots of Prada, Miu Miu and Chanel.

Vogue Italia Banks on Gigi

November 13th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Gigi Hadid shows there’s power in numbers for her cover story in Vogue Italia‘s latest issue. High off of a Victoria’s Secret catwalk debut, the Californian dream is maximally transformed into a candy-colored hair siren with spunk to spare in this editorial shot by Steven Meisel. Stylist Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele works her audacious magic in zany, flashy pieces from Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli, and Versace. Beauty looks created by masters Guido Palau and Pat McGrath round off visuals that are playfully dynamic.

032c Goes to the Place Beyond Fashion

November 11th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Shot for the latest issue of 032C, photographer duo Sean and Seng‘s nuanced editorial goes beyond the fashion narrative creating rich and cinematic imagery for the pages of the autumn/winter issue.  The pair of models portray a carnal plot and quiet drama that unfolds frame by frame utilizing some major filmic mise en scène like the foggy countryside location and natural lighting. The pair is known for their evocative body of work and this 30 page story, without all the put-ons of conventional editorials, seems to be no different.
