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.

Bowie and the Beauties

February 28th, 2013 |Posted by contributor

Leave it to David Bowie to return to pop culture with a project that blazes across music, fashion, and film. Directed by filmmaker Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways, 2010), Bowie’s fashion-film-meets-music-video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” is a surreal visual feast. Accompanying the latest track off the glam rock icon’s imminent 24th studio album, the film is equal parts Fellini imitation and David Lynch devotion, twisting a wild narrative around tabloids, domesticity, and androgyny. Tilda Swinton lends her acting chops playing Bowie’s wife as Saskia de Brauw and Andrej Pejic‘s deviant celebrity couple invades their lives. Iselin Steiro, rounding out the film’s trio of top models, gets the glammest gig of all playing a young Bowie–the two even lip the words together! What do you make of the video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)?” (text by Matt Meyer)
