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.

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 with a contemplative Janis Ancens photographed by Alessandro Dal Buoni. 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.”
