First Looks: The Last Magazine No. 15

September 11th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Oversized and gorgeous, the impressive newsprint mag The Last Magazine falls in the higher-order ranks of fashion & art publications for its cultural savviness, industry foresight and beautiful photography. Fall’s issue 15 being no different–well, except it’s nearly entirely photography-free. One of the few photos has tradition meeting the nontraditional as long time Last-muse and oft coverstar Daria Werbowy‘s likeness fronts the mag. Swedish artist Anders Krisár casts the super’s most-recognizable face to create the flesh-toned visage with incredible artistry. As for the approach, editor and chief Magnus Berger explains, “It felt like now, this issue, was the right time to do things a bit differently. As much as we love photography, it’s just one out of many types of media that can be used to depict reality or fantasy, or tell a story.” That said, Sean Ryan “badly draws” a perfectly casted roster of hard-to-get top models from Lara Stone to Karlie Kloss all dressed up in fall’s best denims. Mats Gustafson and Alastair McKimm team up to present a selection of fashion’s favorite silhouettes while rising stars Lola Kirke and Julia Karner both get especially expressive renders. See an exclusive preview of the extra-artsy issue before it hits stands Tuesday.

The Company You Keep

May 26th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

In celebration of i-D Magazine’s 35th birthday Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) shoots a league of winking models, 18 to be exact, from the industry’s North Stars like Kate Moss, Malgosia BelaLara Stone and newly minted super Jourdan Dunn to a crop of next of kin muses like Anna Ewers, Natalie Westling and Grace Hartzel. The British photographer who is known for his pared down approach had his career launched by the iconic publication after his work caught the eye of stylist Simon Foxton. Since then he’s been part of the I-D family, so having him shoot the entire summer issue front to back seems a befitting concept. Surely fans of Alasdair McLellan’s work are already drooling.

Resistance isn’t always dramatic and still waters run deep in Document Journal‘s latest issue. “Come Here, Look Back, Move Forward” serves as chieftains Nick Vogelson & James Valeri‘s editorial reaction to the new media landscape, from which a wave of artists are distilling distinctive, sober visuals. The two covers celebrate the unwavering Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone. Collier Schorr artfully captures the irrepressible beauty of Daria while Tyrone Lebon lenses a sanguinely casual Lara. Schorr’s mega-spread includes Freja Beha ErichsenJoan Smalls and more. Harley Weir shoots a spectrum of introspective stories with familiar names like Rianne van Rompaey, Chloe Sevigny and Binx Walton. The photographer chose Russia to portray a cast of delicately posed males acting in dissent from the country’s tenets of masculinity. Document also includes “The Smell of Us”, the Larry Clark & Jonathan Anderson collaborative insert book. Check out the preview below, only on!

Document Based

September 4th, 2014 |Posted by

Why have just one great cover when you can have six? Document Journal‘s F/W 2014 covers feature this season’s mega-models including Saskia de Brauw, Daria Werbowy, Stella Tennant, Raquel Zimmermann, Binx Walton, and Edie Campbell. The variety of this season’s covers show how the photographers & teams brought their own unique spirit to the table. Each cover stands alone, but artistry serves as a unifying theme bringing the diverse covers under the same creative umbrella. Contemporary art star Richard Prince shoots Daria Werbowy against an abstract canvas backdrop, while sculptor Isa Genzken reimagines Stella Tennant as a living work of art. Document’s impressive slate of photographers unleashed their creative side as well with Collier Schorr offering a studied portrait of a paint accented Saskia de Brauw. Roe Ethridge transforms it girl Binx Walton into a modern day Eve – complete with creeping serpent, while Richard Bush taps into Edie Campbell‘s reserves of cool with a Vuitton clad shot. Last but not least, hair stylist du jour Guido Palau collaborates with Fabien Baron for a special cover taking the versatile Raquel Zimmermann and capturing in an austere fashion that is both slick and stripped down.

We love each and every new cover of Document and can’t even pick a favorite… can you?

LV Overload!

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one collection that is getting editorial love this September it is Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut for Louis Vuitton. While LVMH is generally no slouch in the editorial department, Ghesquire’s work has gone that extra mile – appearing on the cover of or within the pages of almost every single September issue thus far. For fans of the designer’s work the constant sight of logo printed belts and playful dresses has been an appealing constant thread amidst the past few months of editorials and covers, but how much is too much? Take a look at the line’s recent front page appearances and decide. Stylists show no signs of slowing down with their Vuitton obsession so you can expect to see the iconic luxury label rack up even more covers as the month winds down.
