Spring Forward

March 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Hercules Universal celebrates the “Endless Affair” with their latest issue, offering a clean and crisp vision of Spring/Summer 2015. Four black-and-white covers kick it off, featuring English actor Jeremy Irvine by Ben Weller, French rocker Marlon Magnée by Hedi Slimane, and models Alessio Pozzi and Austin Scoggin by, respectively, Daniel Riera and Bruno Staub. Social-media sensation Lucky Blue Smith stars in a vivid feature by Giampaolo Sgura, while Pozzi and Arran Sly look sharp in summer whites by Riera. Felix Gesnouin stars in an introspective story from Philippe Vogelenzang, and another editorial by Sgura peeks at the artistic life.

Staub’s collections feature, shot on Fire Island in gorgeous monochrome, features a passel of summer-ready Soul Artist Management faces, including Doug Pickett, Blaine Cook, Sean Harju, Brian Shimansky, Henry Watkins and Cory Bond, all of whom also appear in an accompanying video, premiering here on Models.com.

The Lady is a Vamp

March 20th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The biannual Vamp—cheekily subtitled “a magazine about women on top”—celebrates its first birthday with the release of the new Spring 2015 issue, complete with four powerful covers, starring Versus’ new creative director Anthony Vaccarello with his muse Mica Arganaraz, along with Hilary Rhoda, Jessica Miller, and Drake Burnette with David Agbodji. Dedicated to powerful women, the magazine brings together art, fashion, and culture, with features on the painter Anh Duong and the actress and muse Rossy De Palma. Miller amps up the sex appeal while Burnette and Agbodji offer a sculptural look at the season’s sharpest collections. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the new issue below.

The Greatest Love of All

March 11th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

“Love is the sea you don’t know how to sail.” So begins the introduction to the seventh issue of Italian menswear biannual The Greatest, which celebrates love with a wistful tone. Baptiste Radufe displays a quiet introspection in the cover story shot by Paolo Zerbini (Atomo Management) with styling by Matteo Greco, a mood that continues through Francesco Brigida (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN)’s suiting story with Andrey Smidl and Johan Sandberg (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)’s study of forlorn youth.

Luca Stascheit, Ian Sharp, Rutger Schoone, and Jack Chambers are joined by newer faces Martin Conte and Erik van Gils in a series of quiet portraits, while Gustaaf Wassink gets a surreal twist in the spring’s graphic pieces. The collected interviews offer a refreshing change of pace from the usual, with jazz trumpeter Paolo Fresu and young French actor Pierre Deladonchamps featured alongside Diesel’s new creative director Nicola Formichetti. As with each outing of The Greatest, the Love Issue comes with a special companion video, this one a love story starring rising new face Mihai Bran. Take an exclusive first look below.

First Look: Re-Edition Premier Issue

March 9th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Past and present meet on the two covers of the début issue of Re­-Edition, the brand ­new quarterly out of Antwerp and London from editor Eddie Eldridge, with the choice of either a rare archival image from 1997 of the iconic Stella Tennant by Mark Borthwick or Harley Weir’s dreamy image of an androgynous young man dolled up in a dress by Vetements, the upstart design collective that was just named a finalist in this year’s LVMH Prize competition. Both art and fashion get equal billing in the issue, with excerpts from photographer Alec Soth’s new book Songbook and artist Jim Goldberg’s famous collection Raised by Wolves alongside a range of provocative fashion features. The late Dash Snow is represented by archival works, and the legendary Vivienne Westwood gets her due in a profound retrospective of her lengthy career, making the old feel new again.

Take a look at our exclusive preview below.

Flaunt It

February 19th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has been missing Abbey Lee now that she splits her time between movies and campaigns, but she’s always a welcome presence on a magazine cover Flaunt puts Abbey front and center for its location issue in an ethereal shot by Maurizio Bavutti (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY). Abbey has always been best when she’s in full ethereal-mode and on the bewitching cover she sports a ruffled latex, a septum piercing and a halo of bleached hair for a look that is hauntingly beautiful.

Mass Appeal

December 18th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

As we prepare to turn the page on 2014, the intriguing French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is all set to take us into 2015 with a Winter/Spring issue out this week. CG Watkins’ striking cover introduces a full story shot in Cape Town with fashion by Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones out of his own archive with groundbreaking pieces from the under-appreciated cult designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The other features within offer a refreshing difference from the typical fashion glossy, from the androgynous appeal of Nicolas Coulomb and Florence Tetier’s story with styling by Georgia Pendlebury to the rich spirituality of Watkins’ feature with fashion by Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin. An exclusive portfolio of the late Malian photographer Adama Kouyaté’s classic portraits round out the artistic angle, while Brett Lloyd offers a take on the year to come with quirky looks by Lotta Volkova Adam (New York: ArtList NY, Paris: ArtList Paris). Take a look at our exclusive preview below.
