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.

For The Masses

May 21st, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The Spring 2015 men’s shows are less than a month away, and upstart Parisian menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is already pointing the way ahead with their upcoming Summer/Fall issue. New face Pierre Lanoe takes the cover spot with a striking close-up lensed by Bruna Kazinoti, leading off a feature that offers up a taste of schoolboy chic with cheeky suits styled by Niklas Bildstein Zaar. The rest of the issue, seen here in an exclusive preview, has a workmanlike theme, with a retro-tinged study of aviation by CG Watkins and Reto Schmid’s dissection of cubicle boredom, both with fashion by Sacha Quintin and Eric Diulein. The sharp biannual also offers a look ahead at Fall, with a stark portfolio of the season’s most desirable coats from Dior Homme, Givenchy, and others. Promising new faces are aplenty throughout, demonstrating a distinct creative vision and a keen eye for what’s to come.

From the superstar 90’s British model Cecilia Chancellor to rising young models- Katlin Aas, Irina Kravchenko, Kayley Chabot, Karlis Adlers and Louis de Castro and with features dedicated to Prada, Dries van Noten, Yohji Yamamoto and Raf Simons, SSAW from Finland marks their place as definitely a magazine to watch.
