Metal Magic

April 15th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Sport and fashion combine in the pages of METAL Magazine‘s new issue with a spirited selection of editorials that focus on movement, grace and agility. Utilizing the season’s heavily patterned runway pieces and an impressive roster of contributors, Metal creates a youthful vibe that is downright infectious. The dual covers with Nika Cole on the cover in paint splattered Celine set against a graffiti background and Max Lester looking nonchalant in Frederik Heyman’s trippy imagery, set the stage for an issue that pushes into the surreal while exploring the best elements of statement dressing.

Singular Visions

March 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

There comes a point in the growth of every young magazine when it moves from up-and-comer to here-to-stay. For David Martin, editor-in-chief and fashion director of ODDA, that point is their current, sixth issue, out later this week in the United Kingdom and across the rest of the world over the next few weeks. “It is definitely an issue where we experiment with another level in our work,” he says. “The difference between this issue and previous ones is the maturity of myself, my team, and what we are looking for with this product. This issue made us feel free to develop many things we couldn’t do before. We’re not as experienced as people who have been working in fashion for twenty years, but now we feel we know a bit more.”

That growth is obvious throughout the issue, from the gorgeously evocative previews of Thom Browne’s Fall 2014 collection and Atelier Versace’s Spring designs to the interviews with Jean-Paul Gaultier, Michel Gaubert, Conseulo Castiglioni, Nicola Formichetti. There is an emphasis throughout on personal process as well, whether it be a portfolio of four new designers currently studying at Central Saint Martins or a collection of model Benjamin Allen’s own Polaroids. The issue also has a handmade feel, a rich counterpoint to the standardization seen so much elsewhere, with sketches throughout and a font evocative of swirling loops of cursive. “I believe that if people see the magazine like this,” Martin explains, “it is going to be another kind of connection for them.”

Martin says the issue is also meant to showcase a more artistic side of the editorial team. To wit, Benjamin Allen’s fashion story is awash in impasto daubs and strokes, designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo are painted rather than photographed, and an editorial by photographer Omar Macchiavelli is a wonder of collage techniques. The emphasis that ties the issue together, however, is going deeper. Designer stories offer complex, layered evocations of singular visions, from the prints of Ports to the Spanish vibrancy of Moschino. Backstage images from the recent men’s shows and even a few fresh from London Fashion Week offer an immediate behind-the-scenes look at what we’ll be wearing six months down the line. It may seem a bit premature, but as Yves Saint Laurent himself explains on the closing page, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”
