Modern Day Heroes

May 23rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Sometimes, less is more. Such is the case with DSECTION Magazine, the Portuguese menswear magazine that, next week, moves from a bimonthly to a biannual format with their supersized Spring/Summer issue. Two covers shot by Danielle Levitt spotlight some of the brightest new faces of today: Simon James, Joseph Dolce, and Gabriel Marques, dressed by the multitalented Nicola Formichetti in his first collection for Diesel.

Following on the theme of “Modern-Day Heroes,” the issue explores different strains of strength and bravery, from the fresh, vibrant energy of the cover story to the contained power of Frederico Martins’ calm editorial, with sleek, easy clothes selected by Nelly de Melo Gonçalves. Clark Bockelman, Alex Dunstan, and Matt Trethe stare down the camera in James White’s feature, with styling by Christopher Preston, while Nicolas Ripoll and Matthew Holt offer an elegant preview of Fall 2014, again from the team of Martins and de Melo Goncalves. Paolo Zerbini offers up a study of youthful aggression with Paolo Zagoreo’s edgy streetwear, while Thomas Goldblum presents a more refined take with his classic portraits with styling by Benoit Martinengo. The only downside is knowing we’ll have to wait six months to see the next issue.

The Search Goes On

March 27th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

It’s that time of year again- the V Man/Ford Models search. Since 2008 VMAN has partnered with Ford Models to seek out the next famous face in men’s fashion. Once a year, entrants from around the world submit to the search online for the chance to sign with Ford and be on the cover of VMAN. Past winners include Clark Cord, Joseph Dolce, and Calvin Klein underwear/fragrance model-of-the-moment, Matthew Terry. The winner will be photographed by none other than Karl Lagerfeld for the cover of VMAN 30, the magazine’s upcoming tenth anniversary issue. Look for the unveiling of the winner’s cover this summer and follow the search on Twitter at #shotbyKarl and #VMANFordSearch. (Text: Matt Meyer)

This Charming Man

November 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Where do we begin with Joseph Dolce, the VMan/Ford Models contest winner with the fashionable name and unforgettable face. Considering the heights reached by former V Man winners – campaigns, covers, catwalk struts – it’s safe to say we’ve got high expectations for Mr. Dolce. VMan introduces him to the world via a special video by CyCy Sanders, that provides an animated glimpse into the surreal life of a male model. Inside the magazine, Philippe Vogelenzang and Tom Van Dorpe (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) give a different take on things, with their down to earth, boy next door editorial, while Mario Sorrenti and Robbie Spencer take all the finalists into extreme territory with a sleek menswear story.
