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.

At Large and in Charge

January 11th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

As the Fall 2016 shows kick off in Europe, American-made At Large Magazine offers its own vision of menswear from this side of the Atlantic, with their latest issue celebrating the new season. Four covers—including the actors Jeremy Irvine and McCaul Lombardi, Simon Nessmann, and a charming illustration by Nick Turner—help set the tone for the newest edition of the magazine, which celebrated its first birthday in December. Taking surfing as a loose theme, the issue offers a disquisition on Hawaii and trips to Malibu with Nessman by Randall Mesdon and Bill Mullen and to Montauk with Brett Staal by Chad Davis with styling by Frank Muytjens. Mesdon collaborates with Turner on a surf-inspired feature combining photography and illustration, while the rising surfer Tyler Warren stars in a profile. Philippe Vogelenzang and Julie Ragolia (Jed Root) take their cues from another sport, soccer, with an active editorial starring Jamie Clarke, while Levi Bradley explores the American West for Mesdon and Ragolia. As always, At Large rounds things out with an intellectual edge, as Joel Meyerowitz writes on the power of Giorgio Morandi, and Paul d’Orléans recounts an epochal period in Hunter S. Thompson’s career.

At Large Magazine Dons Five Covers

September 4th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

The latest issue of At Large Magazine evokes a sense of exploration and adventure, a quest for the open road and a glimpse of what’s beyond the horizon. Five covers—Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola, composer J. Ralph, models Marcus Lindberg and Phil Sullivan, and a searing landscape of Monument Valley—offer a fresh change for the new season, as layers pile on and colors turn richer. Within, Amendola discusses his clutch Super Bowl catch in his cover feature, shot by Randall Mesdon and styled by Melissa Yates, and Sullivan takes up mountaineering for an editorial photographed by Matthew Porter. Prints and textures mix and match in Mesdon’s feature with Bill Mullen, while Fabien Kruszelnicki and Paul Sinclaire contrast the stark energy of youth with the grown-up looks on Alex Cunha by Benjamin Lennox and Julie Ragolia. Nick Wooster shares some of his most memorable belongings, including a Rimowa suitcase battered from his many travels, and Akiko Kurematsu explores an overgrown garden of surreal sculpture hidden in the Mexican forest with a photo essay by Peter Ash Lee. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below, and stay tuned for our interview with At Large fashion director Julie Ragolia coming soon.

At Large and In Charge

December 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

The surge in independent publishing continues this week with the launch of At Large Magazine, a new triennial menswear magazine that offers a “first-class seat on an irreverent ride through form and content, fact and fiction, investigation and conversation, aesthetics and adventure.” And a splashy début it is, with four covers—including rising stars Jack O’Connell from Unbroken and Luke Grimes from American Sniper, both shot by Randall Mesdon—and a party to celebrate at Art Basel Miami Beach this Friday with Aaron Young, the Webster, and A$AP Rocky.

Bruce Weber contributes an original portfolio to this first issue, to go along with photo-collages by Jack Pierson and limited-edition bandanas by Young. A third cover features pro surfer Ben Skinner, photographed here by Ben Weller with styling by Julie Ragolia, with an accompanying candid seaside story within. The fourth cover, with artist/model David Alexander Flinn is shot by Mark Abrahams, styled by Deborah Watson. The long-haired Travis Smith takes center stage in another fashion feature, photographed by Matthew Brookes and dressed by Bill Mullen in the season’s sharpest, cleanest sportswear pieces. Take a look at these stories in an exclusive preview of the promising new start below and get the special At Large/J.Crew collaboration t-shirt right here.

Classic Luxury

June 6th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

Since its launch in 2012, upscale menswear magazine Man of the World has built a reputation for classic imagery and an eye for restrained luxury. The latest issue, with rising star Garrett Hedlund on the cover (by John Balsom, styled by their fashion director Julie Ragolia (Jed Root) keeps it all in line with a gorgeous portfolio of portraits by Randall Mesdon, seen here first on models.com. The rich black-and-white photography captures a selection of some of the modeling world’s brightest faces, with up-and-comers like Clark Bockelman and John Todd alongside established names like RJ Rogenski, all dressed by Deborah Watson (Walter Schupfer Management) in the season’s coolest sportswear. The iconic images capture a pensive mood, offering up a quiet study of a handful of engaging faces with nothing to hide.

Singular Visions

March 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

There comes a point in the growth of every young magazine when it moves from up-and-comer to here-to-stay. For David Martin, editor-in-chief and fashion director of ODDA, that point is their current, sixth issue, out later this week in the United Kingdom and across the rest of the world over the next few weeks. “It is definitely an issue where we experiment with another level in our work,” he says. “The difference between this issue and previous ones is the maturity of myself, my team, and what we are looking for with this product. This issue made us feel free to develop many things we couldn’t do before. We’re not as experienced as people who have been working in fashion for twenty years, but now we feel we know a bit more.”

That growth is obvious throughout the issue, from the gorgeously evocative previews of Thom Browne’s Fall 2014 collection and Atelier Versace’s Spring designs to the interviews with Jean-Paul Gaultier, Michel Gaubert, Conseulo Castiglioni, Nicola Formichetti. There is an emphasis throughout on personal process as well, whether it be a portfolio of four new designers currently studying at Central Saint Martins or a collection of model Benjamin Allen’s own Polaroids. The issue also has a handmade feel, a rich counterpoint to the standardization seen so much elsewhere, with sketches throughout and a font evocative of swirling loops of cursive. “I believe that if people see the magazine like this,” Martin explains, “it is going to be another kind of connection for them.”

Martin says the issue is also meant to showcase a more artistic side of the editorial team. To wit, Benjamin Allen’s fashion story is awash in impasto daubs and strokes, designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo are painted rather than photographed, and an editorial by photographer Omar Macchiavelli is a wonder of collage techniques. The emphasis that ties the issue together, however, is going deeper. Designer stories offer complex, layered evocations of singular visions, from the prints of Ports to the Spanish vibrancy of Moschino. Backstage images from the recent men’s shows and even a few fresh from London Fashion Week offer an immediate behind-the-scenes look at what we’ll be wearing six months down the line. It may seem a bit premature, but as Yves Saint Laurent himself explains on the closing page, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

A Man of the World

January 6th, 2014 |Posted by Betty

What better way to start out 2014 than with one of the most recognizable faces in male modeling? Man of the World‘s latest cover features Mr. David Gandy grandly photographed by John Balsom in the stunning Scottish Highlands for their Explorer issue. The rugged editorial, of which we have 2 exclusive images, with styling by Julie Ragolia is enhanced with an in depth interview where David talks about his first job (hint, it wasn’t modeling), his love of cars and his charity work. Combine this with some of the other features on Sebastien Jondeau, actor Taylor Kitsch and a slew of adventurers and sportsmen and you have an issue that’s a must buy for the modern day man. To see Taylor’s cover and to order, go to Man of the World’s website.

The One

October 1st, 2010 |Posted by Betty

The passage of time is not so kind for many but Sean O’Pry is seemingly impervious to this fate. His editorials this month for 7TH Man Magazine (with a fantastic cover and editorial by Randall Mesdon, styled by Julie Ragolia) and shoots for Details/British GQ/Vogue Nippon prove that there’s never a moment when that extraordinary face is not in demand.
