Color Theory

February 27th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Anyone can tell you that the main story of Spring 2014 menswear is color, but it takes true conviction and vision to turn a trend into something truly original and inspired. The team behind L’Officiel Hommes Italia have done just that, pulling on the artist inspirations and bold palettes of the latest collections for a new issue that celebrates creativity and vibrancy in all its shades. The Belgian painter Rinus van de Velde, known for his swirling, expressive portraits and scenes, graces the cover, a surprising decision the magazine’s creative director Pablo Arroyo says was entirely appropriate. “Art is a perennial source of inspiration for the fashion world, especially so for spring-summer 2014,” he explains in his editor’s letter. “This is partly the reason L’Officiel Hommes Italia made the unorthodox choice of having an artist on the cover. Not a model/artist or an actor/artist, but an artist artist.” Pulling from the theme of “teoria del colore”—bringing to mind Goethe’s landmark treatise on the essence of color and its effects on human perception and emotions—the issue features the season’s brightest designs on today’s brightest new faces and seasoned veterans.

Tim Schuhmacher and Tommaso de Benedictis are captured by Laurence Ellis in a crayon box of vivid suits styled by Emil Rebek, while Stefan Heinrichs photographed Matthew Bell in a series of dark, rich sportswear selected by Davide Brambilla. Photographer Mark Pillai and stylist Nik Piras take a graphic approach to the latest hues, with sharp images of Matthew Holt shot through with pops of color. And, in a nod to a season in which designers found inspiration in modernist masters from Mondrian and Calder to Klein and Kapoor, Ben Allen plays the young artist at work and at play—for a story by Thomas Lohr with styling by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen—lost in thought in his studio, caught in a moment of quiet reflection, or simply surrounded by the blissful blue of a clear pool straight out of a Hockney painting.

High Voltage

February 26th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

To emerge among the several quarterly and biannual publications out there, a competitive magazine has to carve out its niche and present unique, arresting content. Doing just that (and then some), London-based Volt Magazine has amassed an impressive offering for its Issue No. 15. In collaboration with French brand The Kooples, Volt has multiple cover stories for Spring 2014, including Idina May Moncrieffe photographed by Luc Coiffait and Jeremy Dufour shot by Dean Rogers. Generating a comprehensive look at trademark London aesthetics, Volt achieves a captivating balance between urban style and high fashion fantasy. On one hand, there’re “Ordinary Boys” Michael Sharp and Reece Sanders styled by Christopher Preston and a shoot by Piczo, while Jamie Bochert embodies fashion editor Victoria Adcock’s “Femme Severe” and Nick Knight photographs Cynthia Lawrence-John’s stylings in “She Sells Sanctuary.”  Haven’t gotten your high voltage fix? Don’t worry, there’s even more inside Volt 15.

Angel Rising

February 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

The Ancient Greeks looked to their gods as idols of strength and beauty, values they praised above all else. In a couple thousand years, those qualities still define our icons, especially in fashion. Thus, with a titanic clash of modernity and ancient mythology, Vogue Turkey brings us its “Modern Goddess,” Doutzen Kroes, on three covers for March 2014. Cuneyt Akeroglu photographs and fashion editor Konca Aykan styles as this Victoria’s Secret Angel ascends to Olympian heights, showcasing her athletic figure and gorgeous face. In Spring looks by LanvinVionnet, Jenny Packham, and more, Doutzen is equal parts Diana the Huntress and Helen of Troy, asserting the timelessness of the modern woman.
