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.

Felix Gesnouin stars in an introspective story from Philippe Vogelenzang, and another editorial by Sgura peeks at the artistic life.

At Large and In Charge

December 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The surge in independent publishing continues this week with the launch of At Large Magazine, a new triennial menswear magazine that offers a “first-class seat on an irreverent ride through form and content, fact and fiction, investigation and conversation, aesthetics and adventure.” And a splashy début it is, with four covers—including rising stars Jack O’Connell from Unbroken and Luke Grimes from American Sniper, both shot by Randall Mesdon—and a party to celebrate at Art Basel Miami Beach this Friday with Aaron Young, the Webster, and A$AP Rocky.

Bruce Weber contributes an original portfolio to this first issue, to go along with photo-collages by Jack Pierson and limited-edition bandanas by Young. A third cover features pro surfer Ben Skinner, photographed here by Ben Weller with styling by Julie Ragolia, with an accompanying candid seaside story within. The fourth cover, with artist/model David Alexander Flinn is shot by Mark Abrahams, styled by Deborah Watson. The long-haired Travis Smith takes center stage in another fashion feature, photographed by Matthew Brookes and dressed by Bill Mullen in the season’s sharpest, cleanest sportswear pieces. Take a look at these stories in an exclusive preview of the promising new start below and get the special At Large/J.Crew collaboration t-shirt right here.

First Look: Hercules ❤ New York

September 26th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

The heavyweight Spanish menswear magazine Hercules Universal is no stranger to the long-distance haul, having devoted previous issues to far-flung locales like China and South Africa. The Fall 2013 issue finds itself a bit closer to home, focusing on the vibrant energy of the world’s capital, New York City. Several of the most talented photographers and stylists working today join forces in the eclectic stories, which showcase the beautiful Fall collections against the backdrop of the ever-changing city. Polish photographer Maciek Kobielski‘s stark black-and-white cover story features the Dane Mathias Lauridsen styled by Swede Zara Zachrisson and Darcy Backlar (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists), all of whom, like many in these pages—and countless immigrants before them— now call New York home. David Agbodji takes a star turn with an uptown elegance in Bruno Staub (De Facto)’s gorgeous feature styled by Miguel Arnau. Sean O’Pry brings his timeless cool to the city streets in Txema Yeste‘s contemplative story with styling by Francesco Sourigues.

The rest of the roster is equally strong, with newer faces like Dominik Bauer, Tidiou M’Baye, O’Shea Robertson and Louis Steyaert taking their places alongside seasoned pros like Clement Chabernaud, Marcel Castenmiller, Miles McMillan—and a few veterans like RJ Rogenski and Aiden Shaw—in features lensed by Giampaolo Sgura, Carlotta Manaigo, Ben Weller, Axel Lindahl, and Zachary Hadley. The rich stories offer small peeks into the city’s bustling diversity, proof that even a lifelong New Yorker can always find something new and exciting just around the corner.
