Document Based

September 4th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Why have just one great cover when you can have six? Document Journal‘s F/W 2014 covers feature this season’s mega-models including Saskia de Brauw, Daria Werbowy, Stella Tennant, Raquel Zimmermann, Binx Walton, and Edie Campbell. The variety of this season’s covers show how the photographers & teams brought their own unique spirit to the table. Each cover stands alone, but artistry serves as a unifying theme bringing the diverse covers under the same creative umbrella. Contemporary art star Richard Prince shoots Daria Werbowy against an abstract canvas backdrop, while sculptor Isa Genzken reimagines Stella Tennant as a living work of art. Document’s impressive slate of photographers unleashed their creative side as well with Collier Schorr offering a studied portrait of a paint accented Saskia de Brauw. Roe Ethridge transforms it girl Binx Walton into a modern day Eve – complete with creeping serpent, while Richard Bush taps into Edie Campbell‘s reserves of cool with a Vuitton clad shot. Last but not least, hair stylist du jour Guido Palau collaborates with Fabien Baron for a special cover taking the versatile Raquel Zimmermann and capturing in an austere fashion that is both slick and stripped down.

We love each and every new cover of Document and can’t even pick a favorite… can you?

River’s Edge

March 6th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Performance is trending this season and V Man is not one to miss out. In an homage to the great Nureyev, the men’s mag presents fresh face Dylan River in “Perform,” a set of graceful images by Collier Schorr. With Jay Massacret styling, Dylan is the perfect match for fashion’s dance moment, taking center stage in a variety of organic poses. Fresh from signing with Ford Models and walking Prada and Rag & Bone, Dylan asserts himself in his first editorial as a man of the moment. (Text: Matt Meyer)

Y-3 The Story is in the Past

July 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Past is present for Y-3, the sport-luxe brand’s unique new campaign by Collier Schorr features Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Victor Nylander & Thomas Sottong on the edge of wilderness, clad in those elegantly nomadic looks from the F/W show styled by Jay Massacret with art direction by Lloyd and Co.

The campaign film, ‘The Story is in the Past’ directed by Schorr, continues with this exploration of time and place. As the camera loops around a central makeshift structure, we become more and more immersed in the story unfolding. What are you seeing? What are you hearing? A struggle, a dance, a longing for intimacy?

As time passes these images repeat, interrupted by fragments of what may or may not be real. Nothing is clear, the story is transmitted through the distortions, glitches, crackling and dust which punctuate the film.

The dramatic mood of the film and the starkly beautiful ad imagery makes for a one of a kind take on the rustic side of sportswear.

High Praise

August 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Men of the cloth aren’t the first people you think of when it comes to high fashion, but VMan‘s Archetypes issue (out September 1st) might change all that. Taking a series of male standards and re-imagining them in stylish ways, the issue aims to challenge our perceptions. Anthony Maule and Jay Massacret‘s elegant story with Bastiaan Van Gaalen and Adrien Sahores is inspired by the look of priests and pontiffs but the designs featured can be appreciated by everyone. Given the austere direction of the season’s menswear looks, this series seems especially timely.

Baby Love

July 1st, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Has Josh Olins formed the perfect girl group for V Magazine? Wang Xiao, Rila Fukushima and Xiao Wen Ju, look absolutely lovely playing a modern day version of the 1960s supergroups like The Supremes and Shirelles in this cheeky story from V72. Dressed in pre-fall’s grooviest pieces from Stella McCartney, Balenciaga and Celine – selected by stylist Jay Massacret, the girls look like they’ve got the whole retro thing down pat. Maki Ryoke and Shon provide the ladies with the prerequisite winged liner and bouffant hairstyles, but the attitude is all their own. If these girls can carry a tune, the music world better watch out!

V72 – The Transformation Issue, hits newsstands July 7th

The Original

September 7th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Before Mark and Tyson, there was Jeff. Discovered in 1978 by Bruce Weber, Jeff Aquilon is considered by many to be the first male supermodel. Jeff returns to the front of the camera once again in a shoot by Hedi Slimane, styled by Jay Massacret for VMan #19, their special “Age” issue. VMan interviews the California father of four to find out what he’s been up to since rolling around with Paulina Porizkova on a beach. It’s easy to see why Jeff left such an indelible mark on the industry; his classic features remain eternally iconic. Only in VMan, available everywhere September 9th.


Jeff by Hedi for VMan #19 preview.


From VMAN9, Jeff Aquilon Photographed by Bruce Weber, 1984 in “HISTORY OF THE MALE SUPERMODEL”.
