Spring Clean

May 12th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may have just barely started, but Spanish menswear magazine Varón Magazine is already looking ahead to the rest of the year, with a Summer/Autumn issue celebrating rebirth and renewal, out now. Coverboy Julius Gerhardt makes a striking comeback, fresh off walking for Prada exclusively in January after coming out of a life-threatening coma. Piczo opens the issue with a celebration of British designers, from upstarts like Craig Green and J.W. Anderson to old standbys Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, styled by Hugo Lavín on Simon Fitskie.

Editorials by Lonny Spence and Yann Faucher lead into Autumn 2015 previews by Nacho Pinedo and Mark Kean, while interviews with Marni’s Consuelo Castiglione, Zegna’s Stefano Pilati, and Pablo Coppola of Bally add some heft. Rising designer Lou Dalton expounds on the merits of apprenticeships, and Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, insists on the value of higher education—even in an age of rising tuition fees and diminishing job prospects. Varón has always celebrated the unconventional—previous cover stars include flamenco dancer Yiyo and parfumier Ben Gorham—and this tenth issue proves no different, with a profile on Jon-Allan Butterworth, the paracyclist who lost an arm in a rocket attack in Iraq and went on to win three silver medals at the Paralympic Games in London. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

Heart of Spain

May 7th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

After the success of the premier issue of EY! Boy Collection—with a hundred pages of new face Garrett Taber shot by Bruce Weber—Luis Venegas’ latest project celebrates the youth of his home country Spain with an issue photographed entirely by Daniel Riera starring the brand-new Jose Tengiz, who just signed with 5th Models in Barcelona on the strength of his youthful appeal showcased here in his first shoot. Over a hundred pages, Riera captures the energetic Tengiz, who has some of the cheeky charm of a young Mark Wahlberg, leaping off docks, rolling in the sand, and practicing the parkour that has been his longtime hobby. Discovered after reaching out to Spanish stylist Josie on Twitter, Tengiz is, as the back cover describes, “filled with energy, strength, beauty, and enthusiasm—some of the most positive values typically associated with youth.” Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue—now available for sale at ByLuisVenegas.com—and accompanying video of Tengiz in action, below.

Lurve Actually

May 7th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Lurve Magazine’s ninth issue themed “Visually, Precisely” the indie mag wanted photography itself to be the creative thrust, so assembling art photographers and image aficionados like Giasco Bertoli and Valerio Spada, who typically operate outside of fashion, made complete sense to shoot the two covers. Philo-philes can embrace the Céline laden cover stars styled by Moreno Galatà. Sure-to-be-hit Poppy Okotcha looks simply sweet in natural light by Spada and Taja Feistner brings the edge, shot in Bertoli’s raw manner. Other editorials by Estelle Hanania with Yulia Musieichuck and Sara Van Pée keep in line with those honest and candid aesthetics, whereas Edith Bergfors’ rich and contrasty images explore form. See the exclusive issue preview below.

I am Legend

April 27th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Vogue Brasil’s fortieth birthday, they laud none other than their own Brazilian legend, Gisele Bundchen. Though she walked her last show in the recent São Paolo Fashion Week, ending 20 years on the runway, the mega-model and mother continues to raise her fabled career to even more illustrious proportions. The cover shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin puts an unclothed and statuesque Gisele on a pedestal looking absolutely immortal. A very apropos choice.

Finding Utopia

April 6th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

“We may never live in perfect harmony. Utopia isn’t really ever found. But today, by believing in it, we just may be able to make the mundane sublime,” starts the Find Utopia issue of Russh #63. Sublime being a good word to describe the carefree content and rosy palettes. On the cover, mother of three and mega-model Vivien Solari is the image of serenity by Johan Sandberg (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY) appearing perfectly blushed and ruddy by Kathy le Sant.  Stefan Heinrichs captures a wispy-haired Magdalena Jasek encapsulating the spirited attitude of springtime youth. For the lens of Emma Tempest (Jed Root), Helena Severin and Farez Brahmi get intimate as dusk approaches. In The Lost Paradise series James Nelson breathes new life into seventies psychedelia exploring in painted strokes of peachy pastels and violets against textured terrains.

Find your own Utopia April 9th when Russh Magazine #63 will be on stands!

Spring Forward

March 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Hercules Universal celebrates the “Endless Affair” with their latest issue, offering a clean and crisp vision of Spring/Summer 2015. Four black-and-white covers kick it off, featuring English actor Jeremy Irvine by Ben Weller, French rocker Marlon Magnée by Hedi Slimane, and models Alessio Pozzi and Austin Scoggin by, respectively, Daniel Riera and Bruno Staub. Social-media sensation Lucky Blue Smith stars in a vivid feature by Giampaolo Sgura, while Pozzi and Arran Sly look sharp in summer whites by Riera. Felix Gesnouin stars in an introspective story from Philippe Vogelenzang, and another editorial by Sgura peeks at the artistic life.

Staub’s collections feature, shot on Fire Island in gorgeous monochrome, features a passel of summer-ready Soul Artist Management faces, including Doug Pickett, Blaine Cook, Sean Harju, Brian Shimansky, Henry Watkins and Cory Bond, all of whom also appear in an accompanying video, premiering here on Models.com. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the issue below.
