Campaign Season!

November 14th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Miu Miu
Ph. Jamie Hawkesworth

Jamie Hawkesworth breathes new life into Miu Miu‘s seasonal campaign with his colorful shots of Natalie Westling juxtaposed against natural shots of abstract landscapes and faded barns. Hawkesworth’s use of color creates parallels between studio shots of Miuccia Prada’s sixties influenced collection of paisleys and mod shapes with the rustic imagery of his outdoor work – together it makes for one of the season’s most striking ads.

Prada

In an enigmatic garden, Prada presents its Fall/ Winter 2015 resort advertising campaign. New faces Adrienne Jüliger, Ine Neefs and Moya Palk pose for photographer Steven Meisel in this interesting composition. The 70s influenced resort wares with their top stitching, boxy skirts and belted dresses show of the casual & feminine side of the Prada look. Meisel’s series of monochrome portraits gives the collection a majestic feeling, even in the shots that call to mind Village of the Damned.

The dreamlike Bottega Veneta resort 2015 advertising campaign was set in the New York Botanical Gardens. Photographer Ryan McGinley creates a slightly surreal feeling while capturing Tilda Lindstam and Janis Ancens against a backdrop of cherry blossoms and lush greenery.

A Fine Balance

October 15th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The sixth issue of Italian menswear The Greatest lands this week with a tone of quiet introspection, taking a meditative approach to its Fall 2014 theme of balance with a contemplative Janis Ancens photographed by Alessandro Dal Buoni. Nemanja Maksic and Tomek Szalanski find equilibrium against each other in Paolo Zerbini (Paris: Atomo Management)’s quiet feature, while Sybille Walter shoots Thibaud Charon in the perfect mix of fabrics, patterns, and textures against a hulking ruin that looms precariously above. Kris Van Assche and Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo share their candid thoughts in engaging interviews, while art photographer Luca de Santis offers a series of his signature collages, combining photographs of chairs intertwined in perfect harmony covered with rainbow sprinkles and candies. A gorgeous accompanying film, starring a jagged coastline and Gordon Bothe singing a haunting ode, ends with a mantra worth remembering in our topsy-turvy, twisted age: “Everything in life is about balance.”

New Homme

June 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

In the latest issue of upstart American menswear magazine Essential Homme, editor-in-chief Terry Lu offers up a note of explanation: “The essentials of great fashion are a combination of remaining constant while continuing to change.” To that end, the June/July issue comes with a fresh redesign, from a sharp, sleek new logo to an innovative editorial structure mixing news items with fashion features. Janis Ancens helps kick off the new vision, starring in the summer-ready cover story, shot by Sebastian Sabal-Bruce on a glowing seashore. American Ballet Theater principal Roberto Bollé is captured by AP Kim in his role as the latest brand ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana, and Bruce Pask discusses his plans as the men’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman. The other rich editorials offer a celebration of Louis Vuitton’s all-American Spring collection and the season’s most modern sportswear and sexiest swimsuits. The issue closes with a look ahead at Pre-Fall, with desirable designs pointing the way forward.

Winter to Spring

March 3rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The cover of the latest issue of DSection may be a study in winter white, but the pages inside make it clear that spring is well on its way. Arthur Gosse and Baptiste Radufe, dressed by Jimi Urquiga in Thom Browne’s Versailles-inspired designs, are photographed by Jack Waterlot for the accompanying story lounging in a snowbound cabin, but the floral prints and bright sportswear found throughout the rest of the menswear magazine offer a welcome prelude to the thaw. Alexi Lubomirski shoots the iconic Daria Werbowy on a secluded patch of welcoming sand, while Nicolas Valois captures new face Daniel van der Deen looking steamy in Dries Van Noten’s rich palm tree-print shirt. Many of today’s biggest faces make appearances as well, from Anders Hayward and Marc Sebastian Faiella to Alexandre Cunha and Ton Heukels, all with that certain elegance expected from DSection.

The Newest

May 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Betty

Much ado is made of the so called “end of printed magazines” but new ones continually come onto the scene determined to become the next buzzed about style bible. We spoke with Matteo Greco, fashion editor and now editor in chief and fashion director of a dandy new Italy based men’s mag named, “The Greatest“.


Simone Nobili by Giuseppe Gasparin. Stylist: Elisa Anastasino

MDC: How did you decide on the name of the magazine?
Matteo Greco
: We decided on “The Greatest” because we wanted an epic name. When in September 2011 we started working on the magazine the team and I were always thinking about the name, that we wanted it to be very strong. One day while I was working on 300 problems to be solved and I was thinking about that “the really strong name”, out came … The Greatest. When I proposed it to the others, they all were happy and I’m very proud of it now.


Andrey Smidl by Stefano Viti, stylist: Matteo Greco


Theo Hall by Francesco Brigida, stylist: Enrico Maria Volonté

MDC: What do you hope will set it apart from other men’s publications?
Matteo
: In my opinion we have nothing less and nothing more than other publications. We are just different. I believe our magazine’s strength stands in our team: all talents who work for The Greatest #1 are so young. I’m 25, the creative directors and the art director are less than 30, the fashion coordinator is 23 and our editor is 28. There’s not many magazines with a team so young. We tried to represent our kind of man, elegant and sophisticated. The magazine is different from others in that we don’t have fashion news or long and boring articles. The articles that are in there for this issue have the main theme as “Il Mediterraneo” (The Mediterranean”).


Diego Fragoso by Dario Salomone, stylist: Francesco Casarotto

MDC: We see that you interview 2 rising Italian designers and that many of the teams that worked on the stories are Italian? Will that be a focus or is that just for this issue?
Matteo:
Fabio Quaranta and Christian Pellizzari are two rising stars. I really love them because they have a beautiful sartorialist cut and their work is always elegant, young and cool. And they are Italian. I love that the most. We wanted to explain that in our country you can find very talented young designers, photographers, stylists and other people really great in their work. We are young and we all work a lot, mostly without budget. So yes, I focused the magazine on the Italian culture.


Janis Ancens by Massimo Pamparana, stylist Matteo Greco


Harry Goodwins by Dario Salamone, stylist: Matteo Greco

MDC: Why Simone Nobili as a choice for the cover model?
Matteo
: Simone is such a nice guy. I really like him. He has a beautiful face, and perfect body. He’s Italian and he looks like a 50’s or 60’s Italian actor or musician like Marcello Mastroianni or Luigi Tenco. He has something so classical and yet something so modern. He’s a rising star, he did Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy S/S 12 campaigns and he’s working a lot. When Giuseppe Gasparin sent me the pictures of the shooting, I looked at the portrait and I immediately called Elisa Anastasino saying “Good job! You have the cover. I love this shoot”.
