Vogue Man Nederland Debuts

September 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The international Vogue family gets a bit larger this week, as Vogue Netherlands Man makes its début, joining Vogue Hommes International and L’Uomo Vogue on the European menswear scene and marking a rising Dutch power. Dutchman Bram Valbracht takes the cover in custom Ronald van der Kemp demi couture, inspired by the iconic Seventies actor Rutger Hauer in a meeting of the nation’s growing might in both fashion and modeling. The rest of the issue presents the best of the Low Countries, with all the models coming from either the Netherlands or Belgium.

Valbracht is joined by Sven de Vries, Daan van der Deen, Erik van Gils, Danny Boom, and Simon Paul in a collections story shot by Philippe Vogelenzang and styled by Jos van Heel against the backdrop of the Bijlmer, a bustlingly multicultural neighborhood in Amsterdam. Elsewhere, Marc de Groot and Marije Goekoop dress down the tuxedo on Gustaaf Wassink, and Nicolas Scheltens and Johannes Spaasoffer a new take on suiting for Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumms and van Heel. Anton Corbijn talks his new film Life with rising American star Dane Dehaan (whose surname is Dutch for rooster) and iconoclastic Belgian theater director Ivo van Hove discusses his work with David Bowie, showcasing all the facets of this powerhouse country that punches way above its size. Take a first look at the première issue, out this week, below.

First Look: ODDA #8, The Decades Issue

March 6th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Talk about ambition. To celebrate their third anniversary, ODDA Magazine’s latest issue celebrates well over a hundred years of fashion, stretching from Charles Frederick Worth’s turn­ of the­ century couture to the menswear we’ll be wearing next fall. “The decision about making a Decades issue talking about the history of fashion was due to my fascination for this industry and how we evolved from the past to the present, always looking at how the past made us who we are now,” explains editor ­in­ chief David Martin.

He and his team have pulled together a collection of snapshots of years past, starting with eight different covers, each representing a different decade. Paris Hilton pops in Moschino for the Nineties, while Baptiste Giabiconi channels Brando for the Fifties. The pages within celebrate the legacies of Ferragamo, Balenciaga, and Givenchy—the originals—as well as current designers who return time and again to touchstone eras, from the elegance of Ralph Lauren’s Thirties to Vivenne Westwood’s punk Seventies.

The issue is awash with contradictions and different perspectives. Alex Loomans is straight out of Gatsby and Thorben Gartner marks the current day in Italo Zucchelli’s sporty designs. Lieke Van Houten and Nicolas Ripoll embody the romanticism of Forties Spain in Dolce & Gabbana and Daan van der Deen wears Calvin Klein to relive the athletic Nineties. For an industry that is constantly obsessed with what’s new and what’s next, the issue offers a primer on where we came from, answering, gloriously and powerfully, the eternal question of how we got here with a preview of where we’re headed. Take a look at an exclusive preview below.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) ditch their superglossy style in favor of the naturalistic in this picturesque story from W Magazine‘s star studded September issue. The glamour is still there (it’s hard to shoot a cast this gorgeous without infusing some glamour into the images) but the focus is on the normal, unfussy charm of t-shirts, jeans and hoodies. Led by Kate Moss the beautiful cast poses understated pieces chosen by Edward Enninful, stripped of the gowns and finery the group looks at completely at ease – more like a gathering of good friends than a group of the world’s top models. Daria Werbowy, Mariacarla Boscono, Raquel Zimmermann, Saskia de Brauw, Lara Stone, Suvi Koponen, Meghan Collison, Anna Ewers, Mica Arganaraz, Daan van der Deen, Filip Hrivnak and Steve Milatos make for a gorgeous group – especially in the shots where they’re sporting skivvies and smiles.

Versace, Versace

May 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Summer has barely started, but fall campaigns are already beginning to roll in. First up, the legendary house of Versace which unleashes an eyecatching set of ads for men and women helmed by none other than Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner). The in your face duo put forth a daring set of images – for womenswear it’s veteran model Stella Tennant starring in at a Versace clad Anna Ewers with a look of longing – is it the handbag she’s after or the decadently dressed Anna? One may never know, but the photos with their saturated colors and Guy Bourdin leanings pack a visual punch and Joe McKenna (Art Partner)’s styling is a wonder to behold. Menswear is all about the beefcake with Filip Hrivnak and Daan van der Deen taking us back to the 90s in bold prints, leather chaps and David Bradshaw‘s luxe mix of sexy Versace standards.

Artistic Inspiration

April 10th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The menswear scene has taken an artistic bent of late, with a new season rife with references to painters, sculptors, and other creative minds. Spanish magazine Fucking Young offers a direct appeal in their latest edition, with a Spring issue built around the theme of the museum. Michiel Meewis offers a striking cover image, with Bastiaan Van Gaalen dressed by Ginger Clark in Kenzo’s wave-print coat, his face painted in a riot of soft white strokes. The stories within offer a refreshing variety of artistic scope, from Phil Dunlop’s rich Victorian-inspired portraits to Jay Schoen’s sleek study of pure minimalism, the latest rewards of the long and lasting interaction between fashion and art.
