Unrealism

September 23rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Fall 2014 is shaping up to be one of the most varied seasons in recent memory, at least if the latest issue of ODDA Magazine is anything to go by. The progressive fashion publication releases its new edition this week, celebrating the multifarious strands that have come together to create a sense of excitement and change for the coming months. Working off the theme of “Unrealism,” this seventh issue takes to task nothing less than the way we live in the world to today, constantly bombarded by a stream of changing images, pulling bits and pieces, like magpies, to construct our unified selves. ODDA gives us plenty to work with, starting with the dual covers, one featuring Stephanie Hall in a vibrant Prada coat photographed by Philip Meech, and the other a hazy Garrett Neff in a hazy multiple-exposure Polaroid by Jeremy Kost, whose provocative new book Fractured is also previewed within. The various visions keep on coming, from a dreamy look at Eden and an Alaïa special at the barre to an insightful Hussein Chalayan retrospective and an interview with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, with beauty, hair, and even fragrance in between. The issue ends with a look ahead at Spring 2015, a reminder that, even in the swirl of the new, there is always something even newer.

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.

Details, Details

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

If September is indeed, as they say, the January of fashion, then the new issue of Details Magazine might very well be one of the unofficial almanacs for the new year. The September edition of the menswear bible (with all model casting by Edward Kim) offers a polished look ahead at the new season, starting off with a brooding Idris Elba on the cover. The iconic RJ Rogenski shows off a plush selection of cold-weather options, while newcomers Jeremy Matos and Richard Detwiler take on the latest patterned suits on a big scale. Robbie Fimmano captures a range of faces old and new in the season’s most desirable Eighties-inspired pieces, and a gorgeous, artistic collaboration between the photographer Lacey and the painter Alexa Meade showcases a clutch of swirling prints in an editorial that harkens back to everyone from Van Gogh to Banksy. Happy New Year!

World Cup

May 30th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Made in Brazil Magazine has always been the go-to resource for the best and brightest Brazilian models, and the magazine expands its horizons with its latest edition. Labeled as the “International Issue,” the new magazine offers up a continent-spanning study of some of the most important faces in the industry today, kicked off by the four cover boys: the Argentine Mariano Ontañon, the Brit Arran Sly, the German Thorben Gartner, and the American Chris Moore. Every continent—save, of course, Antarctica—is represented within, from the Australian Joel Meacock and a heavy South American contingent to Matthew Brookes (D + V Management )’ beautiful feature shot in the desert outside Marrakech.

Several of the most promising new faces, from Harvey James and John Todd to Matt Mcglone and Ronald Epps, take their place alongside some of the industry’s biggest names, from Garrett Neff and David Agbodji to Chad White and Tobias Sorensen, all of them captured in characteristically rich and striking photography by Milan Vukmirovic (De Facto), Cristiano Madureira, Greg Vaughan, Dean Isidro, and more. With this eighth issue, Made in Brazil proves it can widen its scope without losing its singular, coherent vision.

First Look: Lurve

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Lurve Magazine‘s next era kicks off with a stellar issue with a fresh perspective on fashion. Editor in chief Lyna V. Ahanda, new fashion director Moreno Galatà and fashion editor Alessandra Conti create an issue focused on a modern interpretation of 90s style fashion photography. Bringing all the raw energy and individualism that defined the 90s aesthetic back into the mix is an inspired move and one that makes each editorial feel vital.

The issue’s six covers take the theme head on with a diverse lineup of models & photogs; reportage photographer Olivia Arthur shoots model Adwoa Aboah in Louis Vuitton; while Lily McMenamy sports Céline in a stylized shot by Sonia Sieff. Queen of cool Caroline de Maigret shows another side in an elegant image by Alessio BolzoniRobbie McKinnon sports a brush and stacks of vinyl in his cheeky cover by Edmund Aves. The always chic Elisa Sednaoui is serene in Prada in her cover by Laurence Ellis (Visual Artist UK ) and Hanne Gaby Odiele delights in a striking image by Dario Catellani (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)

Inside the content is every bit as compelling as the covers, with an array of contributors providing exciting new edits that adhere to that avant garde 90s spirit. Each story is special in its own way, but famed street photographer Nick Turpin providing his first fashion work, shooting Neelam Johal in a museum setting is a bonafide moment.

Singular Visions

March 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

There comes a point in the growth of every young magazine when it moves from up-and-comer to here-to-stay. For David Martin, editor-in-chief and fashion director of ODDA, that point is their current, sixth issue, out later this week in the United Kingdom and across the rest of the world over the next few weeks. “It is definitely an issue where we experiment with another level in our work,” he says. “The difference between this issue and previous ones is the maturity of myself, my team, and what we are looking for with this product. This issue made us feel free to develop many things we couldn’t do before. We’re not as experienced as people who have been working in fashion for twenty years, but now we feel we know a bit more.”

That growth is obvious throughout the issue, from the gorgeously evocative previews of Thom Browne’s Fall 2014 collection and Atelier Versace’s Spring designs to the interviews with Jean-Paul Gaultier, Michel Gaubert, Conseulo Castiglioni, Nicola Formichetti. There is an emphasis throughout on personal process as well, whether it be a portfolio of four new designers currently studying at Central Saint Martins or a collection of model Benjamin Allen’s own Polaroids. The issue also has a handmade feel, a rich counterpoint to the standardization seen so much elsewhere, with sketches throughout and a font evocative of swirling loops of cursive. “I believe that if people see the magazine like this,” Martin explains, “it is going to be another kind of connection for them.”

Martin says the issue is also meant to showcase a more artistic side of the editorial team. To wit, Benjamin Allen’s fashion story is awash in impasto daubs and strokes, designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo are painted rather than photographed, and an editorial by photographer Omar Macchiavelli is a wonder of collage techniques. The emphasis that ties the issue together, however, is going deeper. Designer stories offer complex, layered evocations of singular visions, from the prints of Ports to the Spanish vibrancy of Moschino. Backstage images from the recent men’s shows and even a few fresh from London Fashion Week offer an immediate behind-the-scenes look at what we’ll be wearing six months down the line. It may seem a bit premature, but as Yves Saint Laurent himself explains on the closing page, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”
