May 2nd, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

British menswear magazine HERO Magazine celebrates the new season with a jam-packed issue full of vitality and energy, leading off with rising star Tye Sheridan on the cover, shot by co-editor-in-chief Fabien Kruszelnicki and styled by Gro Curtis. Inside, James Franco interviews American Horror Story actor Evan Peters, and Kara Walker talks art with Ari Marcopoulos, who also contributes a zine full of his candid photographs. The issue offers the enlightening and eye-opening view on the world that is the magazine’s calling card, with Nicole Maria Winkler and Adam Winder taking a fishing trip up the river, Alessio Boni and Curtis heading upstate for a long weekend with new faces Elias de Poot and Marijn Alper, and Paolo Zerbini and Vittoria Cerciello offering a documentary-style look into Italian teenage ballroom dancers. Rick Owens and Peter Dundas, newly at Roberto Cavalli, offer insight into their inspirations, and the magazine also shines the spotlight on upcoming British design talents James Long, Daniel W. Fletcher, and Bobby Abley. Take an exclusive first look at the new issue, out now, below.

First Look: HERO Magazine

October 21st, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

Few cities have been as reflective of the past half-century of American life as Detroit, from white flight and the decline of manufacturing through crumbling infrastructure and abandoned neighborhoods to creative millennial reinvention and post-bankruptcy renewal. “Detroit gets lots of attention, and not necessarily for the best reasons,” explained James West and Fabien Kruszelnicki, the editors-in-chief of HERO Magazine, about their decision to dedicate the latest issue of their menswear magazine to the ever-shifting metropolis. “It had a lot of bad press, about violence and volatility, about people moving there for cheap rents, but we felt like it was a place that was also somehow new, a place where everything hadn’t been decided already. It has the space to redefine itself, which is quite a big deal.”

The British actor Nicholas Hoult takes the cover, shot and styled by Venetia Scott (Camilla Lowther Management), but the rest of the issue is a celebration of Detroit in all its promise and possibility. Kruszelnicki offers a “Detroit Survey,” street casting an overview of the city’s youth styled by Zarina Humayun, while Alessio Boni and Gro Curtis capture new face Robbi (TIAD) in hidden spaces amongst the urban sprawl. Nicole Maria Winkler and Adam Winder pay homage to the city’s vanishing automobile industry, and Dominick Sheldon (Creative and Partners) and Andrew Mukamal offer an eclectic vision of a promising “New America.” “There’s a sense that Detroiters have had to fend for themselves, and that says a lot about the way the creative scene is developing there,” say West and Kruszelnicki. “It’s a city with a lot of history that America kind of brushed aside, but now it’s becoming the personification of a new kind of American Dream, a place where anything is possible.” Take an exclusive first look at the new issue, out this week, below.

Brotherly Love

May 15th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

Following up on the success of their cult-inspired “Father” feature from last fall’s issue of HERO Magazine, photographer Sebastian Kim and stylist Gro Curtis team up again this season with another 32-page, documentary-style story that pushes the boundaries of the “fashion editorial.” Keeping with the familial theme, “Brother” follows the daily life of four brothers in what Curtis calls “their strange little community, upstate, far from any kind of reality.” Kim works in a journalistic, Life-magazine vein, while Curtis pulls from top designer brands like Dior Homme, Balenciaga, and Givenchy to create a world with a slightly sinister, off-putting feeling. America’s gun culture is alluded to, as is the current softened economic state, in a feature that offers a refreshingly raw and powerful alternate to the standard glossy editorials. Take a look at our exclusive preview below, and see our first look of the rest of the issue, including cover boy Justin Bieber by Hedi Slimane here.

The Runaways

February 9th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Sebastian Kim and (Management + Artists) Gro Curtis take to the streets with a gritty story for HEROINE Magazine that sees Emmy Rappe and Lina Berg as a pair of teenage vagabonds clad in Balenciaga and Maison Martin Margiela. The pair walks through deserted woods and along the edge of suburban towns all while wearing a pared down selection of pieces from luxurious labels. Most kids don’t skip town in Alexander Wang and Opening Ceremony, but Curtis’ skillful styling and Kim’s naturalistic images make the concept feel authentic.

Fathers & Sons

November 4th, 2014 |Posted by Betty

Upstart British menswear magazine HERO Magazine has always had a knack for going big, and their latest issue is no different, with rising star Ansel Elgort on the cover. Inside, a powerful thirty-page feature offers a fictional take on cult life, photographed by Sebastian Kim (Management + Artists) in lush, documentary-style black and white. “What I wanted to achieve was almost documentary stills,” says fashion editor Gro Curtis, “like Sebastian is a photographer for LIFE in the Seventies visiting this strange commune upstate.” The contemplative images in “Father” capture both action and solitude, with a hint of menace, pulling inspiration from the story of Jonestown and attitude from the languorous young adults of Martha Marcy May Marlene. The young acolytes, (casting by Douglas Perrett) played by Gustav Morstad, Marshall Brockley, Ryan James, AJ Mason, Cashel Barnett, and Daniel Caban, are dressed simply by Curtis, in keeping with a concept that is more about art than fashion. “Narration is what I believe in, and Sebastian joined in so strongly with this concept,” Curtis explains. “It is dark and strange and sinister and perhaps funny in one moment, but it looks real. It doesn’t look like a fashion story. That’s what we tried to achieve.” Take a look at our exclusive preview below.
