Signs of the Times

April 20th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

As we move from Aries into Taurus, Spanish menswear magazine Fucking Young!—born under the sign of Capricorn—prepares to launch a Spring/Summer 2015 issue this week devoted to the theme of the Zodiac, with a story on each of the twelve standard signs along with one for the little-known thirteenth, Ophiucus, the Serpent Bearer, here portrayed by Alessio Pozzi.

Alexandre Cunha plays Aquarius wrapped in a wool scarf by Loewe on the cover shot by Gorka Postigo, while Benedikt Angerer and Andre Bona embody the clean intellect of Capricorn. The twins Niek and Erik Put are, of course, Gemini, and Dominik Bauer stars in a darkly glittering take on Scorpio. Interviews with designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo and Jeremy Scott of Moschino fill out the issue, which ends with a horoscope for the year ahead. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue, available now for preorder at Fucking Young, below.

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.

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.”
