EY! Boy Collection

December 5th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

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.

Break the Internet

December 5th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

Leave it to Alexander Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) to take us back to the days when a denim ad could cause an international incident. If fashion advertising has seemed tame in recent years, the sight of a stripped down Anna Ewers sporting nothing more than a pair of inky blue Wang jeans pooled around her ankles is sure to set things right. With a provocative perspective and fearless take on female sensuality, Klein creates instantly an instant classic of in your face advertising that is sure to be hotly debated.

At Large and In Charge

December 4th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia comment (1)

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.

Wu Bar None

December 3rd, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

In the world of Jason Wu every night provides another opportunity for fine dining and supermodel filled revelry. For the designer’s Spring 2015 campaign, Wu continues his epic pairings of top model and top restaurant with sleek Inez & Vinoodh shots of Karlie Kloss in the legendary Grand Central Oyster Bar. The chic campaign art directed by Patrick Li juxtaposes an ultra-sexy Wu clad Karlie, with the Oyster Bar’s famous counter and Grand Central’s Beaux-Arts architecture. All in all the ad provides the perfect distillation of Wu’s woman – a vibrant and well heeled beauty who is always ready for a night on the town and sets hearts racing the moment she walks in the door.

Unconventional

December 2nd, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

Art and fashion are ever more closely intertwined in the latest issue of Noon, the upstart British biannual whose new edition is out now in collaboration with London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner)’s cover shot of a luminous, glowing, cloud-covered sky helps set the tone for a publication that promises a strong aesthetic and creative vision that goes above and beyond the standard glossy—even as the accompanying story within satisfies the fashion set with superstars Lara Stone and Simon Nessman. Mel Bles (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) shoots a passel of unconventional looks by Jack Borkett, while Charlie Engman manipulates his urbane images of Esther De Jong in a feature styled by Lyson Marchessault. Lyson also works with Janneke Van der Hagen in a serene outdoor portfolio. The art edge shines through in a series of writings and artist portfolios, from Robi Rodriguez’s tender portraits to Lorenzo Vitturi’s iconoclastic still lifes. Take a look at our exclusive preview below of the new issue, now available at stockists and at N-o-o-n.co.uk.

Scandinavia Nights

December 1st, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (3)

Nothing is quite like the moment when a magazine finds its groove and Scandinavia SSAW Magazine certainly has with its S/S15 issue. The artistically minded glossy has always had impressive content, but the issue dubbed “July Nights” takes their darkly elegant sensibilities one step further with an issue that skews earthier and rawer than what we’ve seen from the publication before. Led by Creative director & Editor in Chief, Jakob Hysén Hedberg, the team creates a series of editorials that merge fashion, nature and the occasional nod to Ingmar Bergman into a delight for viewers. Boe Marion shoots model’s model, Kim Peers on the coasts of Bergman’s beloved Baltic island, Fårö the setting of classic films like Persona and Through a Glass Darkly. The cinematic influence infuses Marion’s story with an intensity and stripped down beauty that gives each image power. Elsewhere in the issue, Edita Vilkeviciute and Maja Salamon connect with nature via atmospheric stories that capitalize on each woman’s unique allure.

The Ideal

November 26th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

At the end of every year Vogue Paris selects an star to guest edit and serve as the inspiration behind a special issue. In the past everyone from Tom Ford to Carla Bruni and John Galliano has taken on the role but for 2015 the magazine snags an icon of French culture to serve as the guiding force for the December/January edition. As a model, muse and enduringly stylish presence on the fashion scene Ines de la Fressange represents for many the ideal of the chic Parisienne woman. We can’t think of a better person to see on the frontpage of Vogue Paris and in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) striking stylized shots de la Fressange shows she’s still a force in front of the camera.

Changing Faces

November 25th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (9)

Ben Toms.
Robbie Spencer.
Kendall Jenner.

As the social media generation’s unofficial face, Kendall has come to represent changes in the way modeling stars are made. From reality star, to social media upstart and finally top model, Kendall has blazed her own unique trail through the industry so a cover of fashion’s most inventive magazine seems only fitting. Shot by Toms and styled by Spencer, Jenner is in her element as both a futuristic pinup and a nouveau mod. A special 3rd cover features both images spliced together by artist, Doug Abraham.
