Upwards Over The Mountain

October 16th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

This calls for a celebration! This season, the energetic Spanish menswear magazine Fucking Young celebrates its fifth anniversary with a powerful Fall/Winter 2014 issue on the theme of mountains, on newsstands today. The legendary Jon Kortajarena, shot by Hunter & Gatti (OPUS), stares out from a stony ground from the cover, and a similarly audacious spirit is visible throughout, in fourteen editorials with varied takes on the idea of rocky ascent. Linus Wordemann earns his mountaineering badge as a Boy Scout in Roman Goebel’s feature, while Max Rendell offers a technical, sporty take in Michiel Meewis’ story. Coco Capitan brings a DIY, Wes Anderson aesthetic to a shoot with Ben Waters, and Ilaria D’Atri offers lush atmospherics in “Vesuvius,” with Roberto Sipos. It’s a bold statement from a publication that is always moving onwards and upwards. “Although we’ve had great satisfactions along the way, we still have the feeling that we are climbing the slopes, slowly ascending,” the editors say. “The harder that it gets, the more satisfaction we get from getting a little bit higher. What is so special about a mountain and about conquering it?” Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue below. To buy, click here.

A Fine Balance

October 15th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The sixth issue of Italian menswear The Greatest lands this week with a tone of quiet introspection, taking a meditative approach to its Fall 2014 theme of balance. Nemanja Maksic and Tomek Szalanski find equilibrium against each other in Paolo Zerbini (Paris: Atomo Management)’s quiet feature, while Sybille Walter shoots Thibaud Charon in the perfect mix of fabrics, patterns, and textures against a hulking ruin that looms precariously above. Kris Van Assche and Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo share their candid thoughts in engaging interviews, while art photographer Luca de Santis offers a series of his signature collages, combining photographs of chairs intertwined in perfect harmony covered with rainbow sprinkles and candies. A gorgeous accompanying film, starring a jagged coastline and Gordon Bothe singing a haunting ode, ends with a mantra worth remembering in our topsy-turvy, twisted age: “Everything in life is about balance.”

The Ranger

August 20th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The summer season is ending and fall is ramping up, a time for new clothes, new trends, and new ideas. Out Magazine kicks off the more serious half of the year with a rich new editorial focusing on animal conservation that pays tribute to Peter Beard and his iconic images of African wildlife. Shot on location in an exotic animal reserve in Northern Florida, industry veteran Kevin Rice plays the rugged adventurer, communing with giraffes, zebras, and lemurs in the new season’s sturdiest and sharpest outerwear. Shot by Blair Getz Mezibov (Visual Artist UK ) with styling by Grant Woolhead (Jed Root) and grooming by Carolina Dali (See Management), the story puts gorgeous images to a good cause, a look ahead, we hope, of what’s to come. Take a look at an exclusive preview for Models.com below.

Essentially Exciting

August 14th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Fresh off an eyecatching redesign, American menswear journal Essential Homme gets a head start on Fall with its new August/September issue, out this week. A grown-up Daniel Radcliffe stares out from the front cover, and the issue is packed with enticing styles for the cold days to come, kicked off by a collections story featuring iconic brands from Louis Vuitton and Hermès to Dior Homme and Lanvin. Designer interviews with Gucci’s Frida Giannini, Gieves & Hawkes’ Jason Basmajian, and rising star Patrik Ervell add some heft, interspersed with a variety of visions for Fall 2014. Mark Cox takes on smooth turtlenecks in an Eighties-inspired story, while the three finalists from the magazine’s casting search with Wilhelmina are dressed up in denim. Philip Witts and Rasmus Hååg—themselves finalists from last year’s VMAN/Ford Models Model Search—are sleek in an all-HUGO story, and Alexander Ferrario and Misa Patinszki take on some of the season’s more daring looks in an autumnal feature. New faces Nick Shaw and McClain Driver, shine in 2 other graphic editorials. Covering everything from sleek suiting to chunky Nineties creepers, the latest Essential Homme proves to be the ultimate resource for the season ahead.

New Homme

June 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

In the latest issue of upstart American menswear magazine Essential Homme, editor-in-chief Terry Lu offers up a note of explanation: “The essentials of great fashion are a combination of remaining constant while continuing to change.” To that end, the June/July issue comes with a fresh redesign, from a sharp, sleek new logo to an innovative editorial structure mixing news items with fashion features. Janis Ancens helps kick off the new vision, starring in the summer-ready cover story, shot by Sebastian Sabal-Bruce on a glowing seashore. American Ballet Theater principal Roberto Bollé is captured by AP Kim in his role as the latest brand ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana, and Bruce Pask discusses his plans as the men’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman. The other rich editorials offer a celebration of Louis Vuitton’s all-American Spring collection and the season’s most modern sportswear and sexiest swimsuits. The issue closes with a look ahead at Pre-Fall, with desirable designs pointing the way forward.
