Brotherly Love

May 15th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia comment (1)

Following up on the success of their cult-inspired “Father” feature from last fall’s issue of HERO Magazine, photographer Sebastian Kim and stylist Gro Curtis team up again this season with another 32-page, documentary-style story that pushes the boundaries of the “fashion editorial.” Keeping with the familial theme, “Brother” follows the daily life of four brothers in what Curtis calls “their strange little community, upstate, far from any kind of reality.” Kim works in a journalistic, Life-magazine vein, while Curtis pulls from top designer brands like Dior Homme, Balenciaga, and Givenchy to create a world with a slightly sinister, off-putting feeling. America’s gun culture is alluded to, as is the current softened economic state, in a feature that offers a refreshingly raw and powerful alternate to the standard glossy editorials. Take a look at our exclusive preview below, and see our first look of the rest of the issue, including cover boy Justin Bieber by Hedi Slimane here.

True at First Light

For Vogue Germany’s June issue Alisa Ahmann takes center stage romantically photographed by Giampaolo Sgura. On the cover the towheaded German stuns in Celine with pops of crimson added from dahlia brooches, styled by Christiane Arp. On the inside, the red motif is carried through creating a vivid color story. But Alisa’s sculptural cheekbones command the attention accented by powdery salmon hues and simply crimped hair. See the exclusive preview below.

Spring Clean

May 12th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

Spring may have just barely started, but Spanish menswear magazine Varón Magazine is already looking ahead to the rest of the year, with a Summer/Autumn issue celebrating rebirth and renewal, out now. Coverboy Julius Gerhardt makes a striking comeback, fresh off walking for Prada exclusively in January after coming out of a life-threatening coma. Piczo opens the issue with a celebration of British designers, from upstarts like Craig Green and J.W. Anderson to old standbys Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, styled by Hugo Lavín on Simon Fitskie.

Editorials by Lonny Spence and Yann Faucher lead into Autumn 2015 previews by Nacho Pinedo and Mark Kean, while interviews with Marni’s Consuelo Castiglione, Zegna’s Stefano Pilati, and Pablo Coppola of Bally add some heft. Rising designer Lou Dalton expounds on the merits of apprenticeships, and Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, insists on the value of higher education—even in an age of rising tuition fees and diminishing job prospects. Varón has always celebrated the unconventional—previous cover stars include flamenco dancer Yiyo and parfumier Ben Gorham—and this tenth issue proves no different, with a profile on Jon-Allan Butterworth, the paracyclist who lost an arm in a rocket attack in Iraq and went on to win three silver medals at the Paralympic Games in London. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

First Look: SSAW Finland

May 11th, 2015 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix comments (3)

SSAW Magazine (Finland), the London and Helsinki-based fashion magazine has released their latest bi-annual issue and the focus is on lucky number 7. With seven in-depth interviews with the buzziest design houses of the present – Julien Dossena, Jacquemus, Thomas Tait, Craig Green, Vetements, Satu Maaranen and Hood by Air, the publication’s biggest issue yet is more interested in the essence of now. Seven editorials follow featuring faces like Lindsey Wixson shot by Gia Coppola and styled by Heathermary Jackson looking delightfully fresh-faced, Maria Veranen shot by Chris Vidal Tenomaa in pieces that resemble wearable art, and 90s legend Rosemary Ferguson on the cover by photographer Drew Jarrett. The raw curation of the images translates remarkably for the viewing pleasure with colorful, dynamic imagery.

Heart of Spain

May 7th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

After the success of the premier issue of EY! Boy Collection—with a hundred pages of new face Garrett Taber shot by Bruce Weber—Luis Venegas’ latest project celebrates the youth of his home country Spain with an issue photographed entirely by Daniel Riera starring the brand-new Jose Tengiz, who just signed with 5th Models in Barcelona on the strength of his youthful appeal showcased here in his first shoot. Over a hundred pages, Riera captures the energetic Tengiz, who has some of the cheeky charm of a young Mark Wahlberg, leaping off docks, rolling in the sand, and practicing the parkour that has been his longtime hobby. Discovered after reaching out to Spanish stylist Josie on Twitter, Tengiz is, as the back cover describes, “filled with energy, strength, beauty, and enthusiasm—some of the most positive values typically associated with youth.” Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue—now available for sale at ByLuisVenegas.com—and accompanying video of Tengiz in action, below.

Lurve Actually

May 7th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (3)

For Lurve Magazine’s ninth issue themed “Visually, Precisely” the indie mag wanted photography itself to be the creative thrust, so assembling art photographers and image aficionados like Giasco Bertoli and Valerio Spada, who typically operate outside of fashion, made complete sense to shoot the two covers. Philo-philes can embrace the Céline laden cover stars styled by Moreno Galatà. Sure-to-be-hit Poppy Okotcha looks simply sweet in natural light by Spada and Taja Feistner brings the edge, shot in Bertoli’s raw manner. Other editorials by Estelle Hanania with Yulia Musieichuck and Sara Van Pée keep in line with those honest and candid aesthetics, whereas Edith Bergfors’ rich and contrasty images explore form. See the exclusive issue preview below.
