ODDA’S Icons

September 21st, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

For Fall/Winter 2015, ODDA pulls out all the stops, celebrating a range of icons with six covers, from Kermit and Miss Piggy to Pamela Anderson and Lucky Blue Smith. Editor-in-chief David Martin explains that, like so many others, he has always found inspiration in icons, whether they be celebrities, designers, or artists, and the entire issue makes those influences clear throughout, starting with an opening pair of features by Philip Meech and Hope von Joel starring Lucy Evans as Jean Shrimpton and Ben Allen as Michael Caine, reflecting the Swinging Sixties. The issue reaches further back in history with a gorgeous feature on Valentino’s latest haute couture collection shot against romantic Roman ruins, and also looks to the future as Miss Piggy and Kermit discuss their recent breakup and their brand-new show starting on ABC this week. Yi Chen and Ben Fern shoot Tom Webb in London’s sprawling new DSquared store, while Hugo Villanova embodies a Seventies skateboarder aesthetic at Coney Island by Taylor Edward and Javon Drake. Claudia Schiffer discusses her longevity and Francisco Lachowski talks fatherhood, and a generation of future icons, from cover boys Marlon Teixeira and Edward Wilding to Tobias Sorensen, Felix Gesnouin, and Adam Butcher, offer up words to live by.

Take a first look at the issue, out tomorrow exclusively at 10 Corso Como in Milan before its worldwide launch, below.

World Cup

May 30th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Made in Brazil Magazine has always been the go-to resource for the best and brightest Brazilian models, and the magazine expands its horizons with its latest edition. Labeled as the “International Issue,” the new magazine offers up a continent-spanning study of some of the most important faces in the industry today, kicked off by the four cover boys: the Argentine Mariano Ontañon, the Brit Arran Sly, the German Thorben Gartner, and the American Chris Moore. Every continent—save, of course, Antarctica—is represented within, from the Australian Joel Meacock and a heavy South American contingent to Matthew Brookes (D + V Management )’ beautiful feature shot in the desert outside Marrakech.

Several of the most promising new faces, from Harvey James and John Todd to Matt Mcglone and Ronald Epps, take their place alongside some of the industry’s biggest names, from Garrett Neff and David Agbodji to Chad White and Tobias Sorensen, all of them captured in characteristically rich and striking photography by Milan Vukmirovic (De Facto), Cristiano Madureira, Greg Vaughan, Dean Isidro, and more. With this eighth issue, Made in Brazil proves it can widen its scope without losing its singular, coherent vision.

July 24th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Though he’s known for putting together some of the most flawless casts imaginable — see Viktor & Rolf‘s stunning lineup of top tier beauties, and the eclectic group of worldly gents he selected for Berluti — casting director Andrew Weir still finds time to capture the biz’s most beautiful faces in his candid blog, Weir Diary. Getting to the heart of his subjects with honest snapshots that capture them looking unguarded and beautiful, Weir has created an intimate look at fashion from an insider perspective.

Brad Kroenig anchors a stellar cast of modeling veterans and exciting new faces in the latest issue of Vogue China Men. Rising star photographer Blair Getz Mezibov creates a moody atmosphere where you can almost smell the salt air on the season’s nautically inspired pieces styled by Marcus Teo. Chad White, Ryan Koning, Seijo Imazaki, Simon Tham, Zack Clark, Marc G, Yuri Pleskun and Rob Thurston are the gorgeous crew and join Scott Jordan as the Captain who of course prevails in the end.

Time To Enlist

December 9th, 2009 |Posted by contributor

Richard Phibbs’ latest editorial “Boot Camp” featured in the French publication L’Équipe, is a brilliant throwback to 1940’s propaganda. The feature includes favorites Chad White, Kerry Degman and Oraine Barrett and up and coming stars Mike Derr and Ryan Bertroche in an aesthetic similar to that of Frank Capra’s Army recruitment films during World War II. It captures a classic masculine ideal and hails to a disciplinary theme that we’ve seen reoccurring in recent editorials. (story by Gary Mazrek)
