First Look: ODDA’s Tenth Issue

February 23rd, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its tenth issue, ODDA Magazine offers up a tribute—or, rather, per the theme, “Tributes”—to what the editor-in-chief David Martin calls the “defining subcultures of contemporary society” in his editor’s letter. The thick new edition, out today, celebrates a wide range of facets of modern culture, from pop and eroticism to androgyny and romantic decadence, and asks how each plays out in the season’s designs. Two of the six covers celebrate the legendary Joan Collins and Helena Christensen, while Rick Owens muse Michele Lamy takes a third, and each is interviewed within about her life and her art. Lindsey Wixson and Yuri Pleskun get intimate for the camera of Michael Donovan, and Rankin (Camilla Lowther Management) and Lola Chatterton take on gender bending with a lot of sparkle. The issue explores androgyny from both sides, with Rhiannon McConnell in menswear by Rebekah Campbell and Martin, and Liam Little in womenswear by Wish Thanasarakhan. Duy Vo and Alba Melendo offer a tour through the whimsical archives of Viktor & Rolf, and Sita Abellan goes full-out Pop for a Moschino special by Anthony Arquier. Piero Mendez finds himself surrounded by shag wallpaper in featured devoted to kitsch, and Lucas Ucedo and Benjamin Knapp offer a contemporary take on the cowboy look in the section celebrating American culture.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue—available today at 10 Corso Como, Milan, and the Tate Modern, London—below.

ODDA’S Icons

September 21st, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

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.

First Look: ODDA #8, The Decades Issue

March 6th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

Talk about ambition. To celebrate their third anniversary, ODDA Magazine’s latest issue celebrates well over a hundred years of fashion, stretching from Charles Frederick Worth’s turn­ of the­ century couture to the menswear we’ll be wearing next fall. “The decision about making a Decades issue talking about the history of fashion was due to my fascination for this industry and how we evolved from the past to the present, always looking at how the past made us who we are now,” explains editor ­in­ chief David Martin.

He and his team have pulled together a collection of snapshots of years past, starting with eight different covers, each representing a different decade. Paris Hilton pops in Moschino for the Nineties, while Baptiste Giabiconi channels Brando for the Fifties. The pages within celebrate the legacies of Ferragamo, Balenciaga, and Givenchy—the originals—as well as current designers who return time and again to touchstone eras, from the elegance of Ralph Lauren’s Thirties to Vivenne Westwood’s punk Seventies.

The issue is awash with contradictions and different perspectives. Alex Loomans is straight out of Gatsby and Thorben Gartner marks the current day in Italo Zucchelli’s sporty designs. Lieke Van Houten and Nicolas Ripoll embody the romanticism of Forties Spain in Dolce & Gabbana and Daan van der Deen wears Calvin Klein to relive the athletic Nineties. For an industry that is constantly obsessed with what’s new and what’s next, the issue offers a primer on where we came from, answering, gloriously and powerfully, the eternal question of how we got here with a preview of where we’re headed. Take a look at an exclusive preview below.

Artistic Inspiration

April 10th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

The menswear scene has taken an artistic bent of late, with a new season rife with references to painters, sculptors, and other creative minds. Spanish magazine Fucking Young offers a direct appeal in their latest edition, with a Spring issue built around the theme of the museum. Michiel Meewis offers a striking cover image, with Bastiaan Van Gaalen dressed by Ginger Clark in Kenzo’s wave-print coat, his face painted in a riot of soft white strokes. The stories within offer a refreshing variety of artistic scope, from Phil Dunlop’s rich Victorian-inspired portraits to Jay Schoen’s sleek study of pure minimalism, the latest rewards of the long and lasting interaction between fashion and art.

Singular Visions

March 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

There comes a point in the growth of every young magazine when it moves from up-and-comer to here-to-stay. For David Martin, editor-in-chief and fashion director of ODDA, that point is their current, sixth issue, out later this week in the United Kingdom and across the rest of the world over the next few weeks. “It is definitely an issue where we experiment with another level in our work,” he says. “The difference between this issue and previous ones is the maturity of myself, my team, and what we are looking for with this product. This issue made us feel free to develop many things we couldn’t do before. We’re not as experienced as people who have been working in fashion for twenty years, but now we feel we know a bit more.”

That growth is obvious throughout the issue, from the gorgeously evocative previews of Thom Browne’s Fall 2014 collection and Atelier Versace’s Spring designs to the interviews with Jean-Paul Gaultier, Michel Gaubert, Conseulo Castiglioni, Nicola Formichetti. There is an emphasis throughout on personal process as well, whether it be a portfolio of four new designers currently studying at Central Saint Martins or a collection of model Benjamin Allen’s own Polaroids. The issue also has a handmade feel, a rich counterpoint to the standardization seen so much elsewhere, with sketches throughout and a font evocative of swirling loops of cursive. “I believe that if people see the magazine like this,” Martin explains, “it is going to be another kind of connection for them.”

Martin says the issue is also meant to showcase a more artistic side of the editorial team. To wit, Benjamin Allen’s fashion story is awash in impasto daubs and strokes, designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo are painted rather than photographed, and an editorial by photographer Omar Macchiavelli is a wonder of collage techniques. The emphasis that ties the issue together, however, is going deeper. Designer stories offer complex, layered evocations of singular visions, from the prints of Ports to the Spanish vibrancy of Moschino. Backstage images from the recent men’s shows and even a few fresh from London Fashion Week offer an immediate behind-the-scenes look at what we’ll be wearing six months down the line. It may seem a bit premature, but as Yves Saint Laurent himself explains on the closing page, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”
