Classic Luxury

June 6th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

Since its launch in 2012, upscale menswear magazine Man of the World has built a reputation for classic imagery and an eye for restrained luxury. The latest issue, with rising star Garrett Hedlund on the cover (by John Balsom, styled by their fashion director Julie Ragolia (Jed Root) keeps it all in line with a gorgeous portfolio of portraits by Randall Mesdon, seen here first on models.com. The rich black-and-white photography captures a selection of some of the modeling world’s brightest faces, with up-and-comers like Clark Bockelman and John Todd alongside established names like RJ Rogenski, all dressed by Deborah Watson (Walter Schupfer Management) in the season’s coolest sportswear. The iconic images capture a pensive mood, offering up a quiet study of a handful of engaging faces with nothing to hide.

First Love

June 5th, 2014 Posted by models.com comments (2)

Screencap from video

What do you get when a pop diva and a world-class male model collide? Just in time for balmy June weather, Jennifer Lopez has given us an answer: in the video for her latest single, “First Love,” off her upcoming album, A.K.A., Lopez finds true love in male supermodel David Gandy. Gandy, one of the most recognizable faces in fashionhas been hinting at the video on his Instagram for some time, and now, it’s finally here. Directed by Anthony Mandler, the just-released video has J. Lo switching gears from her last video, “I Luh Ya Papi,” trading in a bevy of male models for the ultimate upgrade, Mr. Gandy himself. From the moment Gandy rips across the desert on a motorcycle, the video delivers body heat in jaw dropping black-and-white. Take a view (or two) of the drop-dead gorgeous duo, but beware: the video, like the catchy single, will have you daydreaming all summer long.

First Look: PYLOT Magazine Issue 1

June 5th, 2014 Posted by Matthew comment (1)

In fashion, a true radical is a rarity, but new magazine PYLOT, based in the UK, is launching this week with the objective that’s sure to shake things up. Beginning with their first issue, “The Craft Issue,” the team at PYLOT is committed to presenting an entirely analog fashion magazine. Taking that dedication one step further, PYLOT plans to abstain from beauty retouching entirely. In the words of editor-in-chief Max Barnett, “This means we do not: brighten teeth, whiten eyes, remove spots/moles or liquefy the shape of the body in order to change/shrink it.” This standard even extends to the magazine’s advertisers, who are required to reshoot images in order to adhere to the PYLOT policy. The magazine will, however, utilize Photoshop to color balance and brighten images, necessary concessions in a digital era.

Delivering an array of content as unique as its medium, PYLOT’s inaugural issue foregrounds special analog processes and intricate set design to produce wildly innovative imagery. For instance, for the womenswear cover with set design by David Curtis-Ring, photographer Kasia Wozniak employed a “wet plate” finish, resurrecting a technique from the mid-19th century. On the contrary, the menswear cover features a more modern look styled by Peter Kinane with set design by Alùn Davies.

Check out a selection from PYLOT Issue #1 and order your copy at http://pylotmagazine.com/magazine/.

Dazed’s Future Shock

June 4th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

Dazed & Confused has always been on the cutting edge and their latest issue is no exception. The headline ‘Future Shock’ on the cover sums up the summer issue’s focus on all things new, exciting and relevant within the worlds of fashion, music and art. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot music’s it-girl, FKA twigs for an 18 page portfolio, while the accompanying interview delves into the rising star’s pop-culture influence and upcoming album. Conversations with Boots (producer of Beyonce’s smash visual album), Ai Weiwei, Nan Goldin, Momo Okabe and a final interview of the late great Louise Wilson of Central Saint Martins provide an in-depth look at all that is essential right now. On the fashion front, the five senses are explored via 50 pages of editorial content centered around the latest collections. Jamie Morgan and Robbie Spencer explore touch with Leona Binx Walton with a studio shoot focused on the tactile. Taste is tackled by Julia Hetta (LUNDLUND) and Hannes Hetta with an atmospheric story starring Mijo Mihaljcic. Sound comes to life courtesy of Gregory Harris (Management + Artists) and Tony Irvine (Management + Artists), with Amanda Wellsh playing rocker. Sight is all about Ondria Hardin in bold color combinations, Drew Jarrett’s images styled by Emma Wyman pop off the page. While smell is all about a woody field of flowers with Marte Mei van Haaster luxuriating in the grass in looks by Katie Shillingford shot by Bloomers + Schumm.

Magda Magnifique!

June 4th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Magdalena Frackowiak has always been an intriguing presence in editorials, displaying versatility and changing effortlessly to suit the mood of each portrait. On her latest covers Magdalena delivers elegance in two very different scenarios. On the cover of Vogue Turkey Magdalena exudes sensuality with a come hither stare in a shot by David Bellemere as she sports a floral a Dolce & Gabbana bikini. The sumptuous shot is appealing and perfect for summer. On Vogue China Collections Magdalena ushers in the best of the fall shows with a simple shot by Patrick Demarchelier (taken from her equally chic story in Vogue China) that presents her at her most regal.

Mer Girl

June 3rd, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Laurie Bartley (Management + Artists) finds inspiration under the sea for an oceanic editorial starring Lexi Boling. The otherworldly Numero China story is heavy on pastel colors and metallic designer wares with cutouts or transparency to give a lighter than air feel. This works well as Lexi spends most of her time here submerged in water or washed up along the sandy coasts. With her pale pink hair and heavy eye-makeup Lexi seems fantastical and every inch the real life mermaid.
