Bruce Weber’s Grand Reunion

September 8th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

V Man serves up a powerhouse reunion in the new Fall issue, gathering together five iconic faces for a countryside rendezvous courtesy of Bruce Weber. Brad Kroenig, Andres Velencoso Segura, Tyson Ballou, Jake Davies, and RJ Rogenski, all industry legends who have played major roles in some of the magazine’s most memorable features (Kroenig, in fact, covered the premiere issue), are seen in a quiet sylvan paradise in Weber’s timeless images, styled by Deborah Watson. With a knowing reference to Weber’s own unforgettable 2008 W cover of Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, and Lara Stone lined up in bed, this new story offers a last vision of glowing summer before the weather starts to turn.

At Large and In Charge

December 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The surge in independent publishing continues this week with the launch of At Large Magazine, a new triennial menswear magazine that offers a “first-class seat on an irreverent ride through form and content, fact and fiction, investigation and conversation, aesthetics and adventure.” And a splashy début it is, with four covers—including rising stars Jack O’Connell from Unbroken and Luke Grimes from American Sniper, both shot by Randall Mesdon—and a party to celebrate at Art Basel Miami Beach this Friday with Aaron Young, the Webster, and A$AP Rocky.

Bruce Weber contributes an original portfolio to this first issue, to go along with photo-collages by Jack Pierson and limited-edition bandanas by Young. A third cover features pro surfer Ben Skinner, photographed here by Ben Weller with styling by Julie Ragolia, with an accompanying candid seaside story within. The fourth cover, with artist/model David Alexander Flinn is shot by Mark Abrahams, styled by Deborah Watson. The long-haired Travis Smith takes center stage in another fashion feature, photographed by Matthew Brookes and dressed by Bill Mullen in the season’s sharpest, cleanest sportswear pieces. Take a look at these stories in an exclusive preview of the promising new start below and get the special At Large/J.Crew collaboration t-shirt right here.
