The Sweet Escape

April 2nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Spring is upon us and with the season comes the urge to travel and the promise of sun soaked escapes to far flung corners of the world. For fashion fanatics Spring also brings a thrilling influx of brand new designs and the latest issue of Russh‘s displays many of them in captivating fashion. Juliana Schurig graces the cover in a serene shot by Ward Ivan Rafik (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY) that sets the stage for an issue focused on breaking from the typical. Though Schurig looks resplendent on sandy shores getting away from it all doesn’t always require a trip to the beach; readers can just as easily lose themselves in Clare Shilland’s smart studio shoot, or the striking accessories story starring Ophelie Rupp.

Club Tropicana

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

This has been, in many ways, the winter of our discontent, with biting snow and freezing winds long outstaying their welcome into April. Spanish menswear bible Hercules Universal offers a rejuvenating missive from the sunlit Iberian peninsula with their latest issue, which comes with the promising title “Club Tropicana” stamped on its electric blue cover. Otto Pierce lounges on the pristine sands of Mexico’s Riviera Maya in Paola Kudacki’s saturated cover feature, wearing some of the season’s brightest pieces styled by Francesco Sourigues. Bruno Staub captures new face Carter in Kim Jones’ all-American, California-dreaming designs in a Louis Vuitton feature with fashion by Miguel Arnau. Dan Glaser visits a Provençal paradise in an architectural study of the minimalist G House in Bonnieux, a gleaming box of glass and concrete set in the woods of the French countryside. There is a hint of darkness amongst the light as well, in the edgy video accompanying the cover story, which finds Pierce splashing around in the dark surf in just a pair of Saint Laurent leather pants, in Daniel Riera’s Fall 2014 preview, which captures Jason Anthony in tough looks chosen by Sourigues from a season that seems far away but will be here all too soon. But, rather than diminishing the glow, these shadows serve only to add some sharpening contrast to an issue that, to finish off that line from Shakespeare, is otherwise “made glorious summer by this sun.”

FAT Man Magazine Preview

March 28th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

There’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. Since releasing its first issue in 2008, FAT Magazine has produced unique and compelling content in collaboration with photographers, models, artists, and celebrities. Based in Copenhagen, the biannual glossy has boasted collaborators like Daria Werbowy, Kate Bosworth, and Cass Bird over the past few years. This spring, the team behind Fat Magazine is expanding their brand to men’s fashion with Fat Man Magazine. For their first cover star, Fat Man tapped Kid Cudi on the heels of his latest album release, bringing a focused look at the intersection of fashion, hip-hop, and art that runs through other editorials in the first issue. We caught up with multi talented stylist and editor-in-chief of the glossy, Simon Rasmussen (BRIDGE Artists) to learn more about his inspiration for the issue, and we even learned what his favorite toy is. (text by Matthew Meyer)

COVERHIGHERRESFMPhotographer: Van Sarki (BRIDGE Artists) / Model: Kid Cudi

What made you choose Kid Cudi for the cover?

SR: Kid Cudi represents the creative independent youth. He came from working at the BAPE store on West Broadway where he had his “day-n-nite” hit and now he is featuring in Hollywood movies. We at Fat Man admire men and women that accomplish whatever they set their minds on. Music artists, photographers, models, or any creative talent that gives something to society should be worshipped and Kid Cudi is definitely a creative talent that deserves the attention!

Tell us briefly about your story. How did you get your start in Fashion?

SR: I busted my ass in Copenhagen working as an assistant and by myself for many years making zero money. In Copenhagen you can only do so much so I moved to NYC in 2011 and started on Fat Man last year. It has been a lot of fun and a lot of struggle.

What’s the theme of the issue?

SR: The theme is Fashion, Attributes and Things. Fat Man seeks to explore the men´s fashion industry in a fun, provocative, and creative way. Every issue will include fashion for men, beautiful (semi) naked women, inspirational gadgets, and interesting interviews.

How do you feel Fat Man/Fat Magazine stand out from the other magazines?

SR: Fat and Fat Man are made with pure love for the creative people in this industry. It´s our ambition to be different in our approach to the people we work with. Everybody that works with Fat /Fat Man hopefully has this experience that they have creative freedom.

You ask everyone what their favorite toy is and I even read that you asked Sean Beyen if he was a T or A kind of guy… It makes for really entertaining reading. Do you conduct any of the interviews yourself?

SR: Thanks. Yes, I did all the interviews myself with the intention of entertaining and approaching people with questions they hopefully found interesting to answer.

So… what’s your favorite toy?

SR:  Haha.. My favorite toy is my watch. It’s a 1979 gold oysterquartz day/date Rolex that I got a few years ago from a shop in Copenhagen. Getting this watch was like growing up to me- I became a man from that second I put it on. I know it sounds silly but that’s how I felt. It meant business now, no more fooling around.

What else are you looking forward to? Any big projects coming up?

SR:  The first issue of Fat Man is out so I’m really excited to start working on the second issue.

Any final words of wisdom for us?

SR:  Eat greedy or don’t eat all…. Which means all or nothing : )

Women on Top

March 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who can resist the allure of a magazine dedicated to dynamic, intelligent and take charge women! David Vivirido and Francesco Sourigues, the forces behind Hercules Magazine unveil their vision for women with Vamp Magazine, a tour de force take on fashion dedicated to those who are unafraid to speak their minds and express themselves via the best in power-dressing. The cover tagline “Being the woman you’ve always wanted to be” offers a compelling call to action – it isn’t enough to just wear pretty clothes, a girl has got to take on the world with gusto. The founders offered a mission statement of sorts to Business of Fashion and described the glossy’s ideal reader in no uncertain terms, “Vamp is for women who want to get ahead, stamp their foot and make a statement.”

We love the sound of that and the look of the 6 incredible new covers, which feature an impressive lineup of modeling fixtures. Each cover star is an impressive woman with personality to spare, from industry standard bearers like Carolyn Murphy and Liya Kebede, multi-hyphenate Rosie Huntington Whiteley, campaign queen Karmen Pedaru and in demand it-girls Andreea Diaconu and Emily DiDonato.

Color Theory

February 27th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Anyone can tell you that the main story of Spring 2014 menswear is color, but it takes true conviction and vision to turn a trend into something truly original and inspired. The team behind L’Officiel Hommes Italia have done just that, pulling on the artist inspirations and bold palettes of the latest collections for a new issue that celebrates creativity and vibrancy in all its shades. The Belgian painter Rinus van de Velde, known for his swirling, expressive portraits and scenes, graces the cover, a surprising decision the magazine’s creative director Pablo Arroyo says was entirely appropriate. “Art is a perennial source of inspiration for the fashion world, especially so for spring-summer 2014,” he explains in his editor’s letter. “This is partly the reason L’Officiel Hommes Italia made the unorthodox choice of having an artist on the cover. Not a model/artist or an actor/artist, but an artist artist.” Pulling from the theme of “teoria del colore”—bringing to mind Goethe’s landmark treatise on the essence of color and its effects on human perception and emotions—the issue features the season’s brightest designs on today’s brightest new faces and seasoned veterans.

Tim Schuhmacher and Tommaso de Benedictis are captured by Laurence Ellis in a crayon box of vivid suits styled by Emil Rebek, while Stefan Heinrichs photographed Matthew Bell in a series of dark, rich sportswear selected by Davide Brambilla. Photographer Mark Pillai and stylist Nik Piras take a graphic approach to the latest hues, with sharp images of Matthew Holt shot through with pops of color. And, in a nod to a season in which designers found inspiration in modernist masters from Mondrian and Calder to Klein and Kapoor, Ben Allen plays the young artist at work and at play—for a story by Thomas Lohr with styling by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen—lost in thought in his studio, caught in a moment of quiet reflection, or simply surrounded by the blissful blue of a clear pool straight out of a Hockney painting.
