Spring into Spring

March 5th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The march of the March issues is just around the corner, but American upstart menswear magazine Essential Homme gets a head start with their February/March issue, out now with a striking Hugh Dancy on the cover shot by Kevin Sinclair (See Management) and styled by editor Terry Lu. The issue marks the changing of the seasons as we spring into spring, with a celebration of orange—which makes a case for color of the moment on Ian Sharp—and a wealth of new takes on denim as worn by RJ King. Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo fame take the spotlight, as does chill wave singer Twin Shadow, who also DJed the magazine’s blowout bash during New York Fashion Week. Russell Giardina shows off the new direction Michael Maccari is taking at Perry Ellis, while Markus Ziegler captures the season’s nautical theme in a feature styled by Adrian Manuel. Amid all the upbeat cheer, Philipp Bierbaum and Laurie Harding offer a darker look in a collections feature photographed by Marco Falcetta and styled by Rebecca Baglini, focusing on the edgier edges of the months to come.

Friends & Associates

April 9th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

With more and more designers blurring the lines of gender specific fashion; Matthew Edelstein‘s Spring/Summer 2013 collection for Friends & Associates, as seen in the latest issue of Visual Tales Magazine, is definitely timely. Matthew, a longtime stylist and creative director for the year old brand, studied fashion design first so the move to start the women’s wear line was a homecoming of sorts. The new collection as shot by the renowned Arthur Elgort and styled by David Vandewal puts a twist on all this; women’s clothes based on men’s iconic uniforms, worn on some of the season’s freshest male faces. We asked Matthew and David for their takes on the collection and shoot

Matthew: The Friends & Associates Resort and S/S 2013 collections are inspired by iconic uniforms of all kinds; we combine details from military and sport in strong color and updated proportions. These boys look so fresh we call them ‘Candy Land Cadets’.

David: We created with Arthur Elgort a sort of cinematic men’s fashion story around one of my favorite movie The Last Detail by director Hal Ashby in ’73 starring a young, naughty bad-ass Jack Nicholson. Navy sailors are ordered to bring a young offender to prison but decide to show him a last good time along the way. It’s a tough drama, but they become in a complicated way, buddies for life.

See the brightly colored Resort and Spring 2013 collections, available now, on Friends & Associates.
