A Witty Vision

May 28th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Carbon Copy, the cheeky little brother of the unconventional British menswear magazine Client, celebrates its fourth birthday this year, and the latest issue shows some signs of growing up. The nineteenth edition, out this week, comes with a choice of five striking covers, featuring industry favorites Baptiste Radufe, Charlie France, Demy Matzen, and Matvey Lykov along with new face Rhys Pickering, all photographed by Misha Taylor dressed in smooth suiting by Marc Piña. Carbon Copy moves further away from the clean black-and-white purity of Client, with youthful, colorful stories and a new high-grade printing process. The issue demonstrates a witty vision and playful aesthetic, contrasting an evocatively washed-out feature of summer brights with classically elegant portraiture in the main feature “Body Language,” which comes with a sleek accompanying film. Editor-in-chief Ian Cole offers up a faded study of streetwise youth, the final word on an issue packed with the new. There is plenty of variety on offer, but the through line remains, as always, an emphasis on classic imagery, tinted, here, with the brightest shades of young energy.

Schön Cinema

October 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Schön Magazine goes cinematic for its latest issue, with a host of top models recreating the feel of notable films and then creating one of its own. Stories with River Viiperi and Codie Young mirror the feel of Casino Royale and Secretary, while Ashley Smith goes wild in a colorful beauty story. The pièce de résistance is of course the stunning Isabeli Fontana in an atmospheric cover story filled with glamour, that is taken to the next level in its own film premiering on Schon’s site.

Backstage Boys!

January 23rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Dolce & Gabbana knows a thing or two about male beauty. The iconic brand’s imagery is always chock full of the very best boys and their F/W show was no exception. This season they let the cameras backstage capture the guys at their most candid, showing off personality, perfect physiques and of course that ingeniously tailored fall collection. Keep your eyes peeled for River Viiperi, Benjamin Eidem, Jacob Coupe and all your favorites in this exclusive video courtesy of Swide. What a wonderful way to start out the week – it is sure to bring a smile to your face!

Man, Oh Man!

January 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Two menswear looks we loved and a couple we didn’t. Sound off in the comments and tell us what you’ve been into so far this season. Be sure to click on the photos to see the collections in full on NowFashion!

LOVE ITPRADA
With all the hoopla over actors filling out the finale of Prada‘s F/W collection, you may have overlooked the beautifully conceived collection. Miuccia’s masterful meditation on male power featured an array of memorable looks that treated the subject matter with humor. Football helmet prints on oh so serious top coats, denim sneaking into formal wear and a whole lot of  thoughtful nods to diplomats, dictators and military men of influence. Adrien Brody especially looked dapper in his red shades and fur – potential Oscar outfit? Time will tell.

HMMMM…VERSACE 
Versace refers to this particular pattern as floro-flague and we’re not sure if we love the audacity of it, or hate the very idea of such a thing. It is somewhat memorable though – even with that horrific lime green fur collar. We do admire River Viiperi‘s ability to look good in even the most outlandish pieces –  that has to count for something.

KIND OF WANT…CALVIN KLEIN

Italo Zucchelli’s Calvin Klein collection was intended as a tribute to New York’s unique blend of modernism and tradition. Definitely a fitting idea and a sweatshirt with croc accents certainly encapsulates the concept accurately, but we’re still having a hard time imagining where exactly this sort of piece fits outside of the editorial pages. Where will you be wearing your exorbitantly priced croc hoodie? Other than the obvious answers of Le Bain, Equinox and in every Pitti Immagine Uomo street style picture taken next year.

OIC - Etro

If you lost the sweater and dyed this violet you would have the ultimate performance wardrobe for Prince. Alas, these are not the purple one’s touring ensembles and as such we can find no logical excuse for this combination of elements. Orange velvet, a cowboy hat, one of Bill Cosby’s old sweaters – the mix is confusing and we usually like Etro’s unique melange of influences.
