Mass Appeal

December 18th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

As we prepare to turn the page on 2014, the intriguing French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is all set to take us into 2015 with a Winter/Spring issue out this week. CG Watkins’ striking cover introduces a full story shot in Cape Town with fashion by Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones out of his own archive with groundbreaking pieces from the under-appreciated cult designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The other features within offer a refreshing difference from the typical fashion glossy, from the androgynous appeal of Nicolas Coulomb and Florence Tetier’s story with styling by Georgia Pendlebury to the rich spirituality of Watkins’ feature with fashion by Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin. An exclusive portfolio of the late Malian photographer Adama Kouyaté’s classic portraits round out the artistic angle, while Brett Lloyd offers a take on the year to come with quirky looks by Lotta Volkova Adam (New York: ArtList NY, Paris: ArtList Paris). Take a look at our exclusive preview below.

EY! Boy Collection

December 5th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Luis Venegas, the Spanish mastermind behind brilliantly unconventional magazines Candy and Fanzine137, introduces his latest groundbreaking project this week with the launch of EY! Boy Collection, an exclusive offshoot of EY! Magateen, which has, through nine issues, celebrated an international collection of youthful, masculine energy with a provocative and cheeky twist. For its inaugural issue, in hardcover with a limited-edition run of five hundred copies, all one hundred pages have been turned over to Bruce Weber, whose gimlet-eyed view of all-American youth has spawned an artistic genre in its own right. Weber here trains his lens on seventeen-year-old Florida native Garrett Taber, an avid surfer and rising new face who first worked with the photographer on a shoot for Abercrombie & Fitch. Taber’s sparkling eyes and charming smile fill the issue, for the first in a series of single-guy, single-photographer collaborations that promises to add another shining star to Venegas’ bursting roster. Take an exclusive first look inside the new publication, now available at ByLuisVenegas.com, below.

At Large and In Charge

December 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The surge in independent publishing continues this week with the launch of At Large Magazine, a new triennial menswear magazine that offers a “first-class seat on an irreverent ride through form and content, fact and fiction, investigation and conversation, aesthetics and adventure.” And a splashy début it is, with four covers—including rising stars Jack O’Connell from Unbroken and Luke Grimes from American Sniper, both shot by Randall Mesdon—and a party to celebrate at Art Basel Miami Beach this Friday with Aaron Young, the Webster, and A$AP Rocky.

Bruce Weber contributes an original portfolio to this first issue, to go along with photo-collages by Jack Pierson and limited-edition bandanas by Young. A third cover features pro surfer Ben Skinner, photographed here by Ben Weller with styling by Julie Ragolia, with an accompanying candid seaside story within. The fourth cover, with artist/model David Alexander Flinn is shot by Mark Abrahams, styled by Deborah Watson. The long-haired Travis Smith takes center stage in another fashion feature, photographed by Matthew Brookes and dressed by Bill Mullen in the season’s sharpest, cleanest sportswear pieces. Take a look at these stories in an exclusive preview of the promising new start below and get the special At Large/J.Crew collaboration t-shirt right here.

Black & White

November 6th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Pure black-and-white marks the way forward in the Fall 2014 of Varón Magazine, with the fresh face of seventeen-year-old Yiyo, lauded as the world’s greatest flamenco dancer, staring out from the powerful cover. There’s a similarly clean purity to the rest of the issue as well, from Pizco’s portrait portfolio of thirteen British models styled by Hugo Lavín to Thomas Giddings’ introspective story styled by Way Perry (Jed Root) and starring Simon Fitskie. Erik van Gils brings a soft innocence to Jan Lehner’s Spring 2015 preview, while Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver also offers a look ahead at what’s to come next year. The magazine includes a look at the legendary photographer Stephen Shore, and promising new London-based menswear designers Mirja Rosendahl, Rory Parnell-Mooney, and Sebastiaan Pieter, covering all the bases for the new season. Take a look at the exclusive preview below.

Fathers & Sons

November 4th, 2014 |Posted by Betty

Upstart British menswear magazine HERO Magazine has always had a knack for going big, and their latest issue is no different, with rising star Ansel Elgort on the cover. Inside, a powerful thirty-page feature offers a fictional take on cult life, photographed by Sebastian Kim (Management + Artists) in lush, documentary-style black and white. “What I wanted to achieve was almost documentary stills,” says fashion editor Gro Curtis, “like Sebastian is a photographer for LIFE in the Seventies visiting this strange commune upstate.” The contemplative images in “Father” capture both action and solitude, with a hint of menace, pulling inspiration from the story of Jonestown and attitude from the languorous young adults of Martha Marcy May Marlene. The young acolytes, (casting by Douglas Perrett) played by Gustav Morstad, Marshall Brockley, Ryan James, AJ Mason, Cashel Barnett, and Daniel Caban, are dressed simply by Curtis, in keeping with a concept that is more about art than fashion. “Narration is what I believe in, and Sebastian joined in so strongly with this concept,” Curtis explains. “It is dark and strange and sinister and perhaps funny in one moment, but it looks real. It doesn’t look like a fashion story. That’s what we tried to achieve.” Take a look at our exclusive preview below.

Autumn Leaves

October 30th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The chill is in the air, and the holidays are on their way, as is made abundantly clear by the October/November issue of American menswear magazine Essential Homme, out this week. Starting with rapper Theophilus London’s cover story shot by Kevin Sinclair (See Management) and styled by Terry Lu, the issue offers a wealth of cozy options as fall turns into winter. Matthew Bell and Florian Luger bring a gritty edge to the season’s military-inspired and industrial pieces in a Markus Ziegler feature, while Victor Norlander demonstrates some urban flair. Jamie Wise and Derek Jaeschke star in a West-Coast take on cooler weather, as Thorben Gartner breathes life into the perennial camel trend and Harvey James takes on houndstooth and high-tech dressing. Interviews with Brunello Cucinelli and the designers behind Rag & Bone, Jimmy Choo, and Isaora help flesh things out, leading up to a handy gift guide to close out the issue. Only fifty-five shopping days left until Christmas!

7th Generation

October 27th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

With the change of season increasingly in the air, the British magazine 7TH Man Magazine releases their cozy Fall 2014 issue this week, full of sturdy leather jackets and comfy cold-weather pieces to keep you warm in the coming months. Matt Trethe takes on the clean lines of Acne Studios’ new collection for Lawrence Thomas’ lens, while Jester White heads to the blustery seaside in overcoats shot by Tomas Falmer (LUNDLUND). The other features star a range of new faces looking all set to brave the cold (spotlight on new cover face George Culafic by John-Paul Pietrus), and profiles bring in the pop duo Icona Pop, transgender model Ines Rau, and a clutch of rising British actors, including cover star Sam Claflin from the Hunger Games photographed by Dimitris Theocharis. Winter is coming, but Seventh Man reminds us there are plenty of reasons to look forward with anticipation instead of dread. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue below.

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.
