Upwards Over The Mountain

October 16th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

This calls for a celebration! This season, the energetic Spanish menswear magazine Fucking Young celebrates its fifth anniversary with a powerful Fall/Winter 2014 issue on the theme of mountains, on newsstands today. The legendary Jon Kortajarena, shot by Hunter & Gatti (OPUS), stares out from a stony ground from the cover, and a similarly audacious spirit is visible throughout, in fourteen editorials with varied takes on the idea of rocky ascent. Linus Wordemann earns his mountaineering badge as a Boy Scout in Roman Goebel’s feature, while Max Rendell offers a technical, sporty take in Michiel Meewis’ story. Coco Capitan brings a DIY, Wes Anderson aesthetic to a shoot with Ben Waters, and Ilaria D’Atri offers lush atmospherics in “Vesuvius,” with Roberto Sipos. It’s a bold statement from a publication that is always moving onwards and upwards. “Although we’ve had great satisfactions along the way, we still have the feeling that we are climbing the slopes, slowly ascending,” the editors say. “The harder that it gets, the more satisfaction we get from getting a little bit higher. What is so special about a mountain and about conquering it?” Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue below. To buy, click here.

Artistic Inspiration

April 10th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The menswear scene has taken an artistic bent of late, with a new season rife with references to painters, sculptors, and other creative minds. Spanish magazine Fucking Young offers a direct appeal in their latest edition, with a Spring issue built around the theme of the museum. Michiel Meewis offers a striking cover image, with Bastiaan Van Gaalen dressed by Ginger Clark in Kenzo’s wave-print coat, his face painted in a riot of soft white strokes. The stories within offer a refreshing variety of artistic scope, from Phil Dunlop’s rich Victorian-inspired portraits to Jay Schoen’s sleek study of pure minimalism, the latest rewards of the long and lasting interaction between fashion and art. Order online here.

Spring Break

March 21st, 2013 |Posted by Betty

How ready is everyone for spring? Spanish magazine Fucking Young‘s new issue, with the theme of ‘1997’, certainly brightens the blustery day with a delightful dose of the coolest male models garbed in eye catching pieces by Burberry, Ermenegildo Zegna, Fred Perry and more. Luca Finotti shoots and art directs Dutch favorite Ton Heukels for the cover but keep an eye out for the vintage Gianni Versace archive pieces for the inside edit. And yes all those braces were worn solely for the shoot. Check out the cheeky (and teeth-y) video below and preorder it, here.
