First Look: At Large’s Fifth Issue

April 20th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For their fifth issue, menswear magazine At Large Magazine keeps to their promise to offer a new perspective on the world with a far-reaching exploration of all the possibilities of the new season. Actors Jack Huston and Travis Fimmel take two of the covers, while Kit Butler and Lucky Blue Smith each get their own, along with a fifth by the artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt. Butler’s cover comes from a Louis Vuitton special by Bjorn Iooss and Matthew Marden, who also capture fencer and model Race Imboden as he prepares to compete in the Rio Olympics this summer. Smith takes in the American desert shot by Randall Mesdon and styled by Julie Ragolia, and Carter Smith and Paul Sinclaire find Jesse Shannon and Ryan Keating on a rocky, windswept coast in their cinematic feature. A forty-page portfolio rounds up Los Angeles’s most exciting young artists, and Albert Watson and Paul Sinclaire offer an unconventional look at suiting, starring Francisco Lachowski, Presley Gerber, Nathaniel Visser, Ryan Frederick, and others. Philippe Vogelenzang and Julie Ragolia round up a new generation of rugby talent, and UFC fighter Alan Jouban takes a motorcycle ride for Giampaolo Sgura and Miguel Arnau.

The Greatest’s Youthquake

March 4th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its Spring 2016 issue, menswear biannual The Greatest Magazine explores fashion’s endless fascination with youth, in all its possibility and potential for change. Erik van Gils leads off with the cover in a story by Alessandro Dal Buoni and Matteo Greco that moves with the season’s easy feeling in crisp black and white, and also stars Sven de Vries, Niels Trispel, Dominik Hahn, and Guerrino Santulliana, among others. Massimo Pamparana and Greco capture Mats Van Snippenberg‘s boyish appeal, while Sam Harwood displays his athletic energy in an editorial by Lowe H Seger and Christopher Preston. Thomas Goldblum and Benoit Martinengo take on the season’s fresh high-waisted look, and the new oversized silhouette finds its shape in a story from Francesco Brigida (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN) and Jérôme André (Visual Artist UK ). An accompanying moody, introspective film by Luca De Santis finds Gucci campaign star Hugo Goldhoorn dressed by Greco in the brand’s gentle Spring designs.

First Look: ODDA’s Tenth Issue

February 23rd, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its tenth issue, ODDA Magazine offers up a tribute—or, rather, per the theme, “Tributes”—to what the editor-in-chief David Martin calls the “defining subcultures of contemporary society” in his editor’s letter. The thick new edition, out today, celebrates a wide range of facets of modern culture, from pop and eroticism to androgyny and romantic decadence, and asks how each plays out in the season’s designs. Two of the six covers celebrate the legendary Joan Collins and Helena Christensen, while Rick Owens muse Michele Lamy takes a third, and each is interviewed within about her life and her art. Lindsey Wixson and Yuri Pleskun get intimate for the camera of Michael Donovan, and Rankin (Camilla Lowther Management) and Lola Chatterton take on gender bending with a lot of sparkle. The issue explores androgyny from both sides, with Rhiannon McConnell in menswear by Rebekah Campbell and Martin, and Liam Little in womenswear by Wish Thanasarakhan. Duy Vo and Alba Melendo offer a tour through the whimsical archives of Viktor & Rolf, and Sita Abellan goes full-out Pop for a Moschino special by Anthony Arquier. Piero Mendez finds himself surrounded by shag wallpaper in featured devoted to kitsch, and Lucas Ucedo and Benjamin Knapp offer a contemporary take on the cowboy look in the section celebrating American culture.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue—available today at 10 Corso Como, Milan, and the Tate Modern, London—below.

Women on the Verge

September 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

The British menswear magazine HERO has come a long way in just five short years. Since launching in 2008 with a cover story featuring Robbie Wadge, the publication has graduated to rising actors like Dane DeHaan and Bill Skarsgård, both shot by Hedi Slimane, and a uniquely incisive perspective on the fashion scene. Editors in chief Fabien Kruszelnicki and James West expand their portfolio this week with the launch of a women’s title, named, appropriately enough, HEROINE. “We’ve constantly been asked when a women’s version of HERO would be coming out,” Kruszelnicki and West explain, “and we have always known that we didn’t want to make a straight copy of HERO for women. HEROINE has a different vision, but with all of the same energy.”

That energy can be seen vibrantly throughout the inaugural issue, which can be seen in an exclusive preview below, starting with cover star Juno Temple, interviewed by Daniel Radcliffe. Paola Kudacki shoots the iconic Hilary Rhoda as the epitome of the “modern woman,” writer-slash-actress Brit Marling takes a starring role, and designer features on Saint Laurent, Paul Smith, and Balenciaga, find their place alongside a convergence of Prada with the artist Carsten Höller, who opens up his latest exhibition to the Fall collection. The emphasis throughout is on power and drive, two features that Kruszelnicki and West believe exemplify the HEROINE reader. “We really wanted to make a magazine that was intelligent, that blended fashion with current affairs, culture, and genuinely interesting interviews with strong, aspirational, driven women,” they say. “It’s about an attitude that transcends generations rather than trends, but we also love celebrating fashion and style. All of these things feed into a complete picture of modern society, coming together to represent a modern woman.”

The Weavers of Lim

May 12th, 2011 |Posted by jonathan

Fashion videos are a dime a dozen these days, but leave it to 3.1 Phillip Lim to really do it right. The label’s new video “Weavers“, shot in Palm Springs, presents the stark, graphic F/W 2011 men’s collection against the blank, imposing surfaces of the desert town’s California modernist architecture. Directed by Andrew Paynter with a propulsive soundtrack from Sebastien Perrin, the film features RJ King, Miles Frank, and new face Craig (all cast by Daniel Peddle) striding across vacant parking lots and along sun-bleached stone walls with heroic purpose.

The short feels like a natural progression from Lim’s January presentation in Paris, all sharp lines and clean minimalism. The video, as Lim explained on Nowness.com, where it had its premiere yesterday, is an “attempt to capture that experience of seeing someone in snatches,” a reflection of the fragmented nature of contemporary life and unifying power . “It’s just three strangers going about their day. They cross paths, and feel a kindred spirit because of the way they dress.” (story by Jonathan Shia)
