Client Turns 5!

November 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

British menswear magazine CLIENT Magazine has always been known for its elegance and subtlety, from the crisp black-and-white photography to the clean-lined design, so it’s no surprise that they would celebrate their fifth anniversary without undue fanfare. Instead of an advertisement for themselves, the latest issue keeps the spotlight, as always, on the models within, starting with cover boys Mats Van Snippenberg and Erik van Gils, who help lead off the NEXT Model Army, a feature of many of the agency’s notable faces, from Kit Butler and Paul-Alexandre Haubtmann to Carl Axelsson and Lucky Blue Smith, all of them shot over the course of a day by Ian Cole in the London offices. “Ian was great,” says Smith of the experience. “He let me make silly faces, so that made it super fun.”

The rest of the issue is an appropriate celebration of what the magazine sees as “unconventional British menswear.” Rebecca Naen and Daisy Deane take on outerwear in film strips, while Daniel Fraser and Dee Moran offer an unconventional look at print-heavy streetwear. Rokas Darulis and Kevin Kim capture Simon Fitskie in the season’s surprising textures, and Matthew Bell stars in a knitwear feature on a windswept beach photographed by Rodrigo Carmuega and styled by Cristina Planelles. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

The latest issue of “unconventional” British menswear magazine CLIENT Magazine hits stands this week, packed with the fresh faces and crisp, classic black-and-white photography that has become the publication’s calling card. A moody Ton Heukels stares out from Emmanuel Giraud’s cover story, and the rest of the issue takes a similarly evocative view on the new season. Arran Turton Phillips is captured by Rokas Darulis along a rocky coastline, while Andrew Weir finds Jan Aeberhard rolling in the wintry sand. Ian Cole gathers a portfolio of the best new faces from London’s Select agency in sharp portraits, and Sergi Pons (Red+) offers a bit of heat in a story—with a gorgeous accompanying video directed by Antonina Obrador—starring the iconic Andres Velencoso Segura. Other features find us in the woods, in the fields, and in Budapest’s swinging Opus Jazz Club, and Jeremy Kost offers up a peek at the his contemplative, new multiple-exposure Polaroids. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue below.

Youth and Masculinity

February 1st, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

When photographer Ian Cole founded CLIENT Magazine in late 2010, his mission was to “use a fashion dialogue to explore youth and masculinity” through rich, authentic black-and-white photography, idiosyncratic styling, and the industry’s top and up and coming faces. Now the publication has graduated from newsprint to perfect-bound paperbacks, and publishes four times a year, with the latest issue celebrating the consistently intriguing magazine’s third anniversary. A trio of covers offer the choice between the established and the brand-new, with the fantastic Ben Allen photographed by Cole himself on one, a grinning Charlie James—his mouth still full of braces—by Anna Victoria Best on another and a pensive Dominik Sadoch by Matt Lambert on the 3rd. Inside, Reece Sanders takes a quiet, contemplative turn in Charlotte Hadden’s editorial, while Emmanuel Giraud‘s New Madison portfolio showcases classic faces like Arran Sly, Alexandre CunhaNathaniel Visser and Tom Webb. Stories by Sam Scott Schiavo and Jeremy Kost help round out the issue, which marks a confident step forward in Client’s continuing evolution.
