Vogue Man Nederland Debuts

September 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The international Vogue family gets a bit larger this week, as Vogue Netherlands Man makes its début, joining Vogue Hommes International and L’Uomo Vogue on the European menswear scene and marking a rising Dutch power. Dutchman Bram Valbracht takes the cover in custom Ronald van der Kemp demi couture, inspired by the iconic Seventies actor Rutger Hauer in a meeting of the nation’s growing might in both fashion and modeling. The rest of the issue presents the best of the Low Countries, with all the models coming from either the Netherlands or Belgium.

Valbracht is joined by Sven de Vries, Daan van der Deen, Erik van Gils, Danny Boom, and Simon Paul in a collections story shot by Philippe Vogelenzang and styled by Jos van Heel against the backdrop of the Bijlmer, a bustlingly multicultural neighborhood in Amsterdam. Elsewhere, Marc de Groot and Marije Goekoop dress down the tuxedo on Gustaaf Wassink, and Nicolas Scheltens and Johannes Spaasoffer a new take on suiting for Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumms and van Heel. Anton Corbijn talks his new film Life with rising American star Dane Dehaan (whose surname is Dutch for rooster) and iconoclastic Belgian theater director Ivo van Hove discusses his work with David Bowie, showcasing all the facets of this powerhouse country that punches way above its size. Take a first look at the première issue, out this week, below.

Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.
