The Greatest’s Youthquake

March 4th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its Spring 2016 issue, menswear biannual The Greatest Magazine explores fashion’s endless fascination with youth, in all its possibility and potential for change. Erik van Gils leads off with the cover in a story by Alessandro Dal Buoni and Matteo Greco that moves with the season’s easy feeling in crisp black and white, and also stars Sven de Vries, Niels Trispel, Dominik Hahn, and Guerrino Santulliana, among others. Massimo Pamparana and Greco capture Mats Van Snippenberg‘s boyish appeal, while Sam Harwood displays his athletic energy in an editorial by Lowe H Seger and Christopher Preston. Thomas Goldblum and Benoit Martinengo take on the season’s fresh high-waisted look, and the new oversized silhouette finds its shape in a story from Francesco Brigida (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN) and Jérôme André (Visual Artist UK ). An accompanying moody, introspective film by Luca De Santis finds Gucci campaign star Hugo Goldhoorn dressed by Greco in the brand’s gentle Spring designs.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue and video, out now, below.

Modern Day Heroes

May 23rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

Sometimes, less is more. Such is the case with DSECTION Magazine, the Portuguese menswear magazine that, next week, moves from a bimonthly to a biannual format with their supersized Spring/Summer issue. Two covers shot by Danielle Levitt spotlight some of the brightest new faces of today: Simon James, Joseph Dolce, and Gabriel Marques, dressed by the multitalented Nicola Formichetti in his first collection for Diesel.

Following on the theme of “Modern-Day Heroes,” the issue explores different strains of strength and bravery, from the fresh, vibrant energy of the cover story to the contained power of Frederico Martins’ calm editorial, with sleek, easy clothes selected by Nelly de Melo Gonçalves. Clark Bockelman, Alex Dunstan, and Matt Trethe stare down the camera in James White’s feature, with styling by Christopher Preston, while Nicolas Ripoll and Matthew Holt offer an elegant preview of Fall 2014, again from the team of Martins and de Melo Goncalves. Paolo Zerbini offers up a study of youthful aggression with Paolo Zagoreo’s edgy streetwear, while Thomas Goldblum presents a more refined take with his classic portraits with styling by Benoit Martinengo. The only downside is knowing we’ll have to wait six months to see the next issue.
