Two of a Kind

January 19th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its latest issue for Spring/Summer 2016, the artsy Parisian menswear magazine turns to two of today’s most striking faces, Jackson Hale and Sol Goss, for a cover pairing photographed by Jackie Nickerson that celebrates individuality and creativity, a couple of the publication’s touchstones. Within, Kim Jones dresses the two models in vintage pieces celebrating the punk collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, while James Giles and Niklas Bildstein Zaar capture an otherworldly landscape of sea, stone and lava. Photographer Kira Bunse (Shotview Photographers Management) partners with founders Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin to celebrate the iconic, anarchic films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, while CG Watkins and Rich Aybar riff on real estate and the collapse of the American dream in “Management.” Oliver Hadlee Pearch (Camilla Lowther Management) and Benjamin Kirchhoff ( D + V Management) riff on a military vibe, and Josh Hight and Julian Ganio, demonstrating the ability to see things differently that is one of MASSES’s key strengths, find surprising variety in the blandest of colors in “Beige est beige”.

Take an exclusive first look at the issue—available on Thursday exclusively at Dover Street Market, London, and Trading Museum Comme des Garçons, The Broken Arm, and Colette, Paris, and worldwide a week later—below:

10 Magazine Gets Fresh with Fall

August 18th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Touching on the gamut of autumn’s fashion notes, 10 Magazine hit the stands yesterday with multiple covers following a revamp. Though, nothing overly autumnal here. From the looks of things, 10’s fall is about fun and flash. Lindsey Wixson‘s beauty cover by Donna Trope keeps things crisp and rosy with floral accessories adding just enough gloss. Meghan Collison by Richard Burbridge is a reminder that chic is always modern, and Harleth Kuusik‘s cover reflects on a waning summer while looking forward to this season’s color palette. These three ladies of the moment were styled by 10’s own editor-in-chief Sophia Neophitou, while newcomer Unia Pakhomova’s cover by CG Watkins was styled by Hector Castro10 Men Magazine also has multiple cover stars: Lucky Blue Smith, Matthias K, Rory Cooper and Dylan Bell. All play around with more asymmetrical poses donning the latest wares for the guys, styled by Hector Castro.

Moral Minority

July 9th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

The rebellious French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine takes on convention in their Fall/Winter 2015 issue, pushing the boundaries and rethinking the idea of what a fashion magazine can be. Based off the theme of mœurs (French for morals and manners), the issue opens with a striking cover image of founders Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin by CG Watkins, their faces covered by white cloth napkins as is the tradition while eating ortolans, small birds long eaten whole by the French in a culinary specialty now banned by the government. The push and pull between revealing and concealing is on display in a feature by Kira Bunse as well, with a series of portraits of a model dressed in suits and a headpiece that covers his entire face. Other features by Oliver Hadlee Pearch and Bruna Kazinoti have a sharp edge to them, crisp editorials that buzz with a dangerous energy. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue below.

Mass Appeal

December 18th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

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.

The Art of Anew

October 9th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

Art and fashion are far from strangers these days, but they form a special sort of connection in the latest issue of Italian magazine ANEW, the avant-garde brainchild of founders Francesco Bonami, Coco Brandolini D’Adda, and Martina Mondadori, in a richly textured feature that pulls inspiration from the groundbreaking work of performance artist Joseph Beuys and the Fluxus movement. Shot by CG Watkins and styled by Ilaria Norsa, with creative direction by Dan Thawley, the story features Tommaso de Benedictis and Karlis Adlers in some of Fall’s most memorable pieces, acting out a struggle of man vs. beast before works by Daniel Arsham and Peter Zimmermann at Paris’ Galerie Perrotin. “Shooting in a gallery was actually quite invigorating,” de Benedictis laughs. “You would get the occasional visitor who seemed a little perplexed when they encountered two shirtless models ‘fighting’ one another on the ground in front of an artwork.”

Those visitors might have taken some insight from de Benedictis himself, who began a master’s program in modern Russian art history at London’s Courtauld Institute last week and knows a thing or two about the intricacies of 20th-century art. “I got really excited when I learned that we were shooting in the Galerie Perrotin,” he says. “I had previously studied Beuys and the Fluxus movement at university and was familiar with their artistic objectives. The interesting thing about the Fluxus movement, with Beuys at its core, was the idea that interaction between the spectator and the artist became more important than any physical artistic outcome, and that this interaction actually became the artwork itself. So when we were shooting in the gallery, there was always a sense of interaction with the artworks on display, which adds another layer of meaning to the story.”

For The Masses

May 21st, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

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.

Metal Magic

April 15th, 2014 |Posted by

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.
