Artistic Inspiration

April 10th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia comments (2)

The menswear scene has taken an artistic bent of late, with a new season rife with references to painters, sculptors, and other creative minds. Spanish magazine Fucking Young offers a direct appeal in their latest edition, with a Spring issue built around the theme of the museum. Michiel Meewis offers a striking cover image, with Bastiaan Van Gaalen dressed by Ginger Clark in Kenzo’s wave-print coat, his face painted in a riot of soft white strokes. The stories within offer a refreshing variety of artistic scope, from Phil Dunlop’s rich Victorian-inspired portraits to Jay Schoen’s sleek study of pure minimalism, the latest rewards of the long and lasting interaction between fashion and art.

A Singular Beauty

April 9th, 2014 Posted by Matthew comments (3)

It’s always a thrill to see a fresh face land her first major cover. Nominating Maria Borges for the May 2014 cover, Vogue Portugal takes a minimal approach and lets the rising model’s incredible features stand out. Following up back-to-back knockout turns on the Fall RTW and Spring Couture runways, Maria embodies demure elegance in a pared down cover shoot by photographer Rui Aguiar. Styled by Paulo Macedo in looks from Prada, Alaia, and Maison Martin Margiela, Maria shows off the singular grace that’s already made her a favorite at Dior, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. Adding this stunning series to her growing repertoire, this Angolan beauty is sure to have a bright future ahead of her.

See the full story on Rui Aguiar’s official site and a special video behind the scenes with Maria on Vogue Portugal

Party Girl

April 9th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (3)

Kate Moss turns stylist in the pages of British Vogue with a fashion feature by Craig McDean. Transforming Freja Beha Erichsen into a festival ready rock chick complete with leather jackets and DIY embellishments like studs and pins. Freja pulls off the Moss selected wares admirably – making the layers of fringe and frills look ready for a night out on the town or a day at Coachella. Paul Hanlon‘s artfully tousled waves and Mark Carrasquillo (Art Partner)’s smoky eye add a touch of undone glamour to this streetwise look.

First Look: Centrefold Issue 10

April 8th, 2014 Posted by Matthew » Post a comment

When Centrefold Magazine debuted in 2003, the large format glossy was one of a new breed of A2-sized magazines on newsstands. Since then, that market has grown and the team at Centrefold has observed, like the rest of us, the rise of citizen photography and the advent of the smart phone. Thus, for Issue 10, Centrefold commissioned 9 diverse photographers to shoot editorials using only the Nokia Lumia 1020 smart phone. The results are compiled in the upcoming issue, which features a captivating array of content shot all over the world by Tung Walsh, Damon Baker, Eric Guillemain, and many more. Exploring the Beyond—Issue 10’s theme—Centrefold embraces the ever-present smart phone with 5 stunning covers featuring Zuzanna Bijoch, Eliza Cummings, Lily McMenamy, Sam Rollinson and Marcelle Pallais. Go Beyond and take a look at Issue 10 below.

Sasha Pivovarova has it, Daria Werbowy has it and now Prada taps yet another face blessed with it – Chicagoan Lexi Boling steps up to the plate in the brand’s pre-fall campaign shot by Steven Meisel. Looking at ease while holding an array of accessories Boling captures the quintessential Prada look.
