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.

Optology Issue #3

July 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

When Jonathan Arundel launched his photography and fashion journal Optology Magazine last year, he quickly established a high standard for the publication’s content and design, with rich, gorgeous stories and a sui generis, pared-down aesthetic. The latest issue, the third, is no different, starting from the charming portrait of a smiling Ben Allen that graces the glowing yellow cover. The features within hew to the quiet vision of the magazine, which bills itself as “dedicated to showcasing the finest photography and styling talent.” The cover story within, shot by Harry Carr with styling by Hannah Elwell, captures a new maturity in the young Allen, while Elliot Vulliod headlines his own story and up-and-comers like Dylan Fosket and Karlis Adlers are featured as well. Thomas Giddings gives us a pensive feature starring Andreas Lindquist with styling by Andreas Kokkino, with a gentle mood that carries over into Fanny Latour-Lambert (Walter Schupfer Management)’s images (styling by Optology’s fashion director Madeleine Østlie), which offer hushed slices of thoughtful youth at play.

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.

High Voltage

February 26th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

To emerge among the several quarterly and biannual publications out there, a competitive magazine has to carve out its niche and present unique, arresting content. Doing just that (and then some), London-based Volt Magazine has amassed an impressive offering for its Issue No. 15. In collaboration with French brand The Kooples, Volt has multiple cover stories for Spring 2014, including Idina May Moncrieffe photographed by Luc Coiffait and Jeremy Dufour shot by Dean Rogers. Generating a comprehensive look at trademark London aesthetics, Volt achieves a captivating balance between urban style and high fashion fantasy. On one hand, there’re “Ordinary Boys” Michael Sharp and Reece Sanders styled by Christopher Preston and a shoot by Piczo, while Jamie Bochert embodies fashion editor Victoria Adcock’s “Femme Severe” and Nick Knight photographs Cynthia Lawrence-John’s stylings in “She Sells Sanctuary.”  Haven’t gotten your high voltage fix? Don’t worry, there’s even more inside Volt 15.
