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.

Muito Marlon

May 6th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Made in Brazil devotes their latest issue to one of male modeling’s most iconic Brazilians, Marlon Teixeira, whose curly locks, tanned skin, and toned abs have made him a constant presence in campaigns and magazines throughout his many years in the industry. The incomparable Bruce Weber opens the issue with a hand-drawn sketch of Teixeira and a tender introduction comparing him to “some unexplainable aquatic mystery.”

In the rest of the issue, Milan Vukmirovic shoots Teixeira in a collection of vintage sports cars dressed by George Cortina in little more than a fur throw, while Cristiano Madureira finds him at home with his surfboard on Santa Catarina. Fellow Brazilian superstar Caroline Trentini joins Teixeira for a classically clean feature by Gui Paganini styled by Renata Correa, while Rodrigo Calazans, Diego Miguel, and Leo Bruno all also star in their own editorials. After the success of the previous International Issue, all-American Calvin Klein favorite Clark Bockelman holes up in a rustic beach shack in a story by Matthew Scrivens styled by Benjamin Sturgill, bringing together an issue that offers the best of Brazil to the world and vice versa. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue, out Friday, below.

Beauty & the Beast

February 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

A tale as old as time! Beautiful young woman, a ravenous beast and Karl Lagerfeld? Continuing with their theme of fairytales CR Fashion Book unleashes another modern take on a classic story with Kate Upton and Marlon Teixeira re-imagining Beauty & the Beast with a luxury twist. Karl shoots and Kate dons an assortment of sensual looks complete with Agent Provocateur lingerie and a touch of Chanel joaillerie for good measure. Though it’s hard to see anything even remotely off-putting about a Givenchy clad Marlon Teixeira, the story provides the right mix of fantasy and fashion.

First Look: Made In Brazil #7

November 12th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

Made in Brazil #7 Cover: Rodrigo Calazans by Cristiano Madureira for Made in Brazil #7, November 2013

In the age of Tumblr, the veneration of models has reached its apotheosis. Countless sites dutifully catalogue every runway appearance, e-commerce job, and street style shot, all in celebration of the young and the beautiful. But from its start, Made in Brazil was something different. With its careful curation and clear editorial perspective, the website, devoted to Brazilian models, offered a specific point-of-view that added depth to the constant stream of images. So when founder Juliano Corbetta decided to launch a magazine in 2010, it was no surprise that it would be equally invigorating.

In the years since Made in Brazil’s first issue, the publication has featured a slew of the South American powerhouse’s best and brightest, from Evandro Soldati, Thiago Santos, Arthur Sales, Marlon Teixeira, and Francisco Lachowski to the Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. But what has set the magazine apart from others is its personal, intimate nature, coupled with a casual aesthetic that adds warmth to the often-stunning photography. For the new issue, out this week, Corbetta decided to take a moment to reflect. “When I started working on the seventh issue, the idea of generations and going back to the beginning came around,” Corbetta explains about the latest edition, which features a serene Rodrigo Calazans on the cover. “I wanted to go back to the main concept behind the magazine, which was to celebrate Brazilian male models above all, and put them front and center.”

That idea of the backward glance finds its clearest expression in a retrospective of sorts featuring a wealth of images of Soldati from photographer Cristiano Madureira‘s archive, going back over a decade to the model’s earliest Polaroids. We track Soldati’s maturation from fresh-faced teenager into strong-jawed adult, offering a uniquely expansive view of a time-tested career. Teixeira also contributed a series of personal images as he hits the waves, coolly surfing through a curve of luminescent blue. For Corbetta, finding new ways into the lives of the models he features is one of the key distinctions of Made in Brazil. “All of that is a throwback to how we started, with the boys very involved in the concept and the creation of the issue.”

One feature that is sure to find lots of love on Tumblr is Lachowski’s opening editorial, shot in gorgeous black-and-white by Greg Vaughan and styled by Matthew Marden. Corbetta notes that this is Lachowski’s first major story since the birth of his son, and the model brings a new grown-up sensibility to the arresting images. “He is a big part of how the magazine started, and was the cover of our second issue, and I hadn’t worked with him in over a year,” Corbetta says. “In that time he became a dad and was doing a lot of more commercial work, so I decided to cast him for one of the main fashion stories to make sure he would have a more fun day in the studio, and for us to do something we hadn’t done together yet.”



Coming at the same time as several major changes in Corbetta’s personal life, this seventh issue also marks a transition point of sorts. “For the first time, I felt like I didn’t need to prove anything anymore and could afford to experiment a bit more, and after several big productions, I could go back to the simpler and freer images that started the magazine,” he explains. “This issue is about wiping the slate clean.” Despite the challenges of producing an independent publication twice a year, Corbetta says that it has been an undeniably rewarding experience. “The greatest part of doing the magazine is the response and the support from the fans, and knowing that many people collect the issues and place them on coffee tables along with photography and art books.” As he looks ahead to the next round, he remains well-aware that his path so far has been, in many ways, a fortunate one. “It just happened, and never in a million years did I imagine when we launched the first one that I would even get to do a second issue, let alone a seventh.”

Editorial Inspiration : Jerry Hall

December 4th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Open up the new Vogue Italia and you’ll see the stunning Vanessa Axente looking amazing in Steven Meisel‘s ultra-chic imagery, but take a closer look and you may get a case of deja vu. Don’t those long blonde waves look familiar, isn’t the outsized eroticism and in your face glamour reminiscent of a time, a place? If you started to hear the Rolling Stones playing the background and got a distinctly 70s feel from the entire endeavor, you’re on the right track. Meisel looks back to the iconic allure of Jerry Hall and the saturated, decadent imagery of the disco era. You’ll see hints of Helmut Newton, Willie Christie, Antonio Lopez and more in Meisel’s images, while Karl Templer transforms Resort pieces into over the top looks fit for Studio 54. With a swipe of Pat McGrath applied red lipstick and a Guido Palau coiffed waves, Vanessa transforms into a latter day Jerry, while Marlon Teixeira provides the manpower.
