In Black & White

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may be better-known as the season for bright prints and colors, but the latest issue of upscale menswear magazine Varon Magazine makes a very convincing argument for the purity and sharp beauty of clean black-and-white. Ben Gorham, founder of the exclusive Byredo fragrance collection, stars in the sharp cover story, lensed by Lonny Spence with styling by Varon’s fashion director Hugo Lavín, while the rest of the magazine is filled with many of the industry’s top new faces in a range of the season’s top designs. Bright young Brits Matthew Bell and Tom Gaskin can be seen in the main collections story, photographed by co editor in chief Nacho Pinedo and dressed by Lavín, while Elliot Vulliod is the centerpiece of a feature on the idiosyncratic designer Umit Benan. But for all its celebration of the here and now, the issue offers a sneak peek ahead as well, with an exclusive preview of Fall 2014 from rising British designer Craig Green captured by Piczo with a clinical austerity softened by gentle portraits that add just the right touch of sensitive emotion.

Russh Hour

February 1st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Russh never fails to create a dreamy, feminine and oh so inviting vision of fashion and their latest issue is no exception to the rule. With a heavenly shot of Mirte Maas by Hugh Lippe adorning the cover and a series of ethereal editorials inside this is another of the month’s magazine must haves. Issue #44 focuses on “everlasting love” and the sentimental theme carries through all the stories. Whether it is Elle Muliarchyk capturing Elsa Sylvan through rose colored lenses or Imogen Morris-Clarke looking delicate in Stephen Ward‘s beauty story, each image is filled with a sweetness that is downright charming.
