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!

The Greatest Love of All

March 11th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

“Love is the sea you don’t know how to sail.” So begins the introduction to the seventh issue of Italian menswear biannual The Greatest, which celebrates love with a wistful tone. Baptiste Radufe displays a quiet introspection in the cover story shot by Paolo Zerbini (Atomo Management) with styling by Matteo Greco, a mood that continues through Francesco Brigida (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN)’s suiting story with Andrey Smidl and Johan Sandberg (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)’s study of forlorn youth.

Luca Stascheit, Ian Sharp, Rutger Schoone, and Jack Chambers are joined by newer faces Martin Conte and Erik van Gils in a series of quiet portraits, while Gustaaf Wassink gets a surreal twist in the spring’s graphic pieces. The collected interviews offer a refreshing change of pace from the usual, with jazz trumpeter Paolo Fresu and young French actor Pierre Deladonchamps featured alongside Diesel’s new creative director Nicola Formichetti. As with each outing of The Greatest, the Love Issue comes with a special companion video, this one a love story starring rising new face Mihai Bran. Take an exclusive first look below.

Color Theory

February 27th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Anyone can tell you that the main story of Spring 2014 menswear is color, but it takes true conviction and vision to turn a trend into something truly original and inspired. The team behind L’Officiel Hommes Italia have done just that, pulling on the artist inspirations and bold palettes of the latest collections for a new issue that celebrates creativity and vibrancy in all its shades. The Belgian painter Rinus van de Velde, known for his swirling, expressive portraits and scenes, graces the cover, a surprising decision the magazine’s creative director Pablo Arroyo says was entirely appropriate. “Art is a perennial source of inspiration for the fashion world, especially so for spring-summer 2014,” he explains in his editor’s letter. “This is partly the reason L’Officiel Hommes Italia made the unorthodox choice of having an artist on the cover. Not a model/artist or an actor/artist, but an artist artist.” Pulling from the theme of “teoria del colore”—bringing to mind Goethe’s landmark treatise on the essence of color and its effects on human perception and emotions—the issue features the season’s brightest designs on today’s brightest new faces and seasoned veterans.

Tim Schuhmacher and Tommaso de Benedictis are captured by Laurence Ellis in a crayon box of vivid suits styled by Emil Rebek, while Stefan Heinrichs photographed Matthew Bell in a series of dark, rich sportswear selected by Davide Brambilla. Photographer Mark Pillai and stylist Nik Piras take a graphic approach to the latest hues, with sharp images of Matthew Holt shot through with pops of color. And, in a nod to a season in which designers found inspiration in modernist masters from Mondrian and Calder to Klein and Kapoor, Ben Allen plays the young artist at work and at play—for a story by Thomas Lohr with styling by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen—lost in thought in his studio, caught in a moment of quiet reflection, or simply surrounded by the blissful blue of a clear pool straight out of a Hockney painting.

First Look: L’Officiel Hommes Italia

September 20th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

L’Officiel Hommes Italia just recently came out this week, and has the always provocative Willem Dafoe on its autumn/winter cover, looking unquestionably dapper in Hermès. The theme of the biannual publication this season is oltre se stressi, or “beyond oneself”. Inside the magazine, the pages are filled with breathtaking men’s fashion featuring some of our favorites—Vincent LaCrocq, Eddie Klint, Jester White, and new face Pawel Binczak, to name a few. See the official preview of L’Officiel Hommes Italia below.

First Look : Mixte

January 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

With it’s original take on the latest trends and arresting editorial content, Mixte has always been a publication worth picking up for a dose of fashion inspiration. The latest issue is no exception and you can tell right from the slightly off-kilter cover of Ava Smith by Johan Sandberg that you’re in for a lively visual experience that takes things in interesting directions. Sporting a choppy black bowl cut and fittingly unique  makeup, Ava looks gamine and the images styled by Joanna Schlenzka (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) focus on the season’s graphic fixation. By playing with print and perspective, while reflecting the off the runway patterns, the story creates an artistic riff on the current taste for all things squares and stripes.
