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.
