The Block Is Hot

April 12th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (19)

Nothing better than an early look at new fashion content and the latest issue of The Block Magazine is chock full of striking imagery featuring faves from the worlds of  music, fashion, art and film. Dubbed the “Issue of Marriage Equality” the Block is covered by three standouts, Garbage’s iconic singer the flame haired Shirley Manson, stunning top model Ymre Stiekema and everyone’s favorite poser / artist / actor the quirky Boyd Holbrook.

Of course we don’t judge a mag by its cover alone, because inside The Block there is plenty to love. Jeff Hahn‘s emotive images of real life couples, Tom Allen’s dreamy stills featuring the work of choreographer Justin Peck, Victor Demarchelier‘s NYC themed showcase for  Didier Malige‘s fascinating hair artistry story and Hugh Lippe‘s stark exploration of cutting edge menswear, all caught our eye. Don’t take our word for it of course – have a look at our exclusive preview to see some of the most striking shots inside the issue.
