First Look: HERO Magazine

October 21st, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

Few cities have been as reflective of the past half-century of American life as Detroit, from white flight and the decline of manufacturing through crumbling infrastructure and abandoned neighborhoods to creative millennial reinvention and post-bankruptcy renewal. “Detroit gets lots of attention, and not necessarily for the best reasons,” explained James West and Fabien Kruszelnicki, the editors-in-chief of HERO Magazine, about their decision to dedicate the latest issue of their menswear magazine to the ever-shifting metropolis. “It had a lot of bad press, about violence and volatility, about people moving there for cheap rents, but we felt like it was a place that was also somehow new, a place where everything hadn’t been decided already. It has the space to redefine itself, which is quite a big deal.”

The British actor Nicholas Hoult takes the cover, shot and styled by Venetia Scott (Camilla Lowther Management), but the rest of the issue is a celebration of Detroit in all its promise and possibility. Kruszelnicki offers a “Detroit Survey,” street casting an overview of the city’s youth styled by Zarina Humayun, while Alessio Boni and Gro Curtis capture new face Robbi (TIAD) in hidden spaces amongst the urban sprawl. Nicole Maria Winkler and Adam Winder pay homage to the city’s vanishing automobile industry, and Dominick Sheldon (Creative and Partners) and Andrew Mukamal offer an eclectic vision of a promising “New America.” “There’s a sense that Detroiters have had to fend for themselves, and that says a lot about the way the creative scene is developing there,” say West and Kruszelnicki. “It’s a city with a lot of history that America kind of brushed aside, but now it’s becoming the personification of a new kind of American Dream, a place where anything is possible.” Take an exclusive first look at the new issue, out this week, below.

These three ladies of the moment were styled by 10’s own editor-in-chief Sophia Neophitou, while newcomer Unia Pakhomova’s cover by CG Watkins was styled by Hector Castro10 Men Magazine also has multiple cover stars: Lucky Blue Smith, Matthias K, Rory Cooper and Dylan Bell. All play around with more asymmetrical poses donning the latest wares for the guys, styled by Hector Castro.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.
