Dirty Jobs

July 28th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Odds are you probably wont see Arizona Muse toiling away at your local mechanic shop, but Vogue Paris  provides the elegant Miss Muse with a chance to put her fix-it skills to good use in a fresh story by Mark Segal (Los Angeles: Streeters Los Angeles, New York: Streeters New York, London: Streeters London). Dressed in workman standards like overalls, coveralls and plaid shirts aplenty, Arizona and the dashing Jason Anthony take turns welding, perching on toolboxes and wielding sledgehammers in Segal’s gritty yet playful imagery. Stylist Géraldine Saglio makes Muse & Anthony look natural in their gear, which lends the story and air of authenticity even though we’re sure most people don’t do their dirty work in Jean Paul Gaultier.

A Witty Vision

May 28th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Carbon Copy, the cheeky little brother of the unconventional British menswear magazine Client, celebrates its fourth birthday this year, and the latest issue shows some signs of growing up. The nineteenth edition, out this week, comes with a choice of five striking covers, featuring industry favorites Baptiste Radufe, Charlie France, Demy Matzen, and Matvey Lykov along with new face Rhys Pickering, all photographed by Misha Taylor dressed in smooth suiting by Marc Piña. Carbon Copy moves further away from the clean black-and-white purity of Client, with youthful, colorful stories and a new high-grade printing process. The issue demonstrates a witty vision and playful aesthetic, contrasting an evocatively washed-out feature of summer brights with classically elegant portraiture in the main feature “Body Language,” which comes with a sleek accompanying film. Editor-in-chief Ian Cole offers up a faded study of streetwise youth, the final word on an issue packed with the new. There is plenty of variety on offer, but the through line remains, as always, an emphasis on classic imagery, tinted, here, with the brightest shades of young energy.

Club Tropicana

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

This has been, in many ways, the winter of our discontent, with biting snow and freezing winds long outstaying their welcome into April. Spanish menswear bible Hercules Universal offers a rejuvenating missive from the sunlit Iberian peninsula with their latest issue, which comes with the promising title “Club Tropicana” stamped on its electric blue cover. Otto Pierce lounges on the pristine sands of Mexico’s Riviera Maya in Paola Kudacki’s saturated cover feature, wearing some of the season’s brightest pieces styled by Francesco Sourigues. Bruno Staub captures new face Carter in Kim Jones’ all-American, California-dreaming designs in a Louis Vuitton feature with fashion by Miguel Arnau. Dan Glaser visits a Provençal paradise in an architectural study of the minimalist G House in Bonnieux, a gleaming box of glass and concrete set in the woods of the French countryside. There is a hint of darkness amongst the light as well, in the edgy video accompanying the cover story, which finds Pierce splashing around in the dark surf in just a pair of Saint Laurent leather pants, in Daniel Riera’s Fall 2014 preview, which captures Jason Anthony in tough looks chosen by Sourigues from a season that seems far away but will be here all too soon. But, rather than diminishing the glow, these shadows serve only to add some sharpening contrast to an issue that, to finish off that line from Shakespeare, is otherwise “made glorious summer by this sun.”
