Vamping It Up

September 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Since its debut Vamp Magazine has been about powerful women, the kind who command attention whether they’re in the boardroom or on the catwalk. Issue No. 2 centers around the theme of personality – big, bombastic personalities that draw people in – the idea is hammered home via the five cover stars – Malgosia Bela, Binx Walton, Lily McMenamy, Suvi Koponen and Kim Peers women admired for their ability to bring something different to the table. The editorial content follows suit with arresting new fashion stories, each one bolder than the last – take a first look below.

First Look: Hercules ❤ New York

September 26th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

The heavyweight Spanish menswear magazine Hercules Universal is no stranger to the long-distance haul, having devoted previous issues to far-flung locales like China and South Africa. The Fall 2013 issue finds itself a bit closer to home, focusing on the vibrant energy of the world’s capital, New York City. Several of the most talented photographers and stylists working today join forces in the eclectic stories, which showcase the beautiful Fall collections against the backdrop of the ever-changing city. Polish photographer Maciek Kobielski‘s stark black-and-white cover story features the Dane Mathias Lauridsen styled by Swede Zara Zachrisson and Darcy Backlar (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists), all of whom, like many in these pages—and countless immigrants before them— now call New York home. David Agbodji takes a star turn with an uptown elegance in Bruno Staub (De Facto)’s gorgeous feature styled by Miguel Arnau. Sean O’Pry brings his timeless cool to the city streets in Txema Yeste‘s contemplative story with styling by Francesco Sourigues.

The rest of the roster is equally strong, with newer faces like Dominik Bauer, Tidiou M’Baye, O’Shea Robertson and Louis Steyaert taking their places alongside seasoned pros like Clement Chabernaud, Marcel Castenmiller, Miles McMillan—and a few veterans like RJ Rogenski and Aiden Shaw—in features lensed by Giampaolo Sgura, Carlotta Manaigo, Ben Weller, Axel Lindahl, and Zachary Hadley. The rich stories offer small peeks into the city’s bustling diversity, proof that even a lifelong New Yorker can always find something new and exciting just around the corner.

The Luscious Miss Lily

May 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Oh Lily Donaldson, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways!
We’ve watched Lily blossom from ingenue to bombshell and no matter the story she manages to bring a unique elegance to her images. Check her out on the cover of Muse Magazine, looking sensational in a shot by Matt Irwin. Dressed in looks from Prada, Hermes and Vuitton chosen by stylist Darcy Backlar, Lily looks as good as ever. Nicolas Jurnjack‘s glamazon hair and Adrien Pinault‘s understated makeup serve to highlight Lily’s beauty and we’re loving Irwin’s high gloss imagery.
