Spring Clean

May 12th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may have just barely started, but Spanish menswear magazine Varón Magazine is already looking ahead to the rest of the year, with a Summer/Autumn issue celebrating rebirth and renewal, out now. Coverboy Julius Gerhardt makes a striking comeback, fresh off walking for Prada exclusively in January after coming out of a life-threatening coma. Piczo opens the issue with a celebration of British designers, from upstarts like Craig Green and J.W. Anderson to old standbys Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, styled by Hugo Lavín on Simon Fitskie.

Editorials by Lonny Spence and Yann Faucher lead into Autumn 2015 previews by Nacho Pinedo and Mark Kean, while interviews with Marni’s Consuelo Castiglione, Zegna’s Stefano Pilati, and Pablo Coppola of Bally add some heft. Rising designer Lou Dalton expounds on the merits of apprenticeships, and Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, insists on the value of higher education—even in an age of rising tuition fees and diminishing job prospects. Varón has always celebrated the unconventional—previous cover stars include flamenco dancer Yiyo and parfumier Ben Gorham—and this tenth issue proves no different, with a profile on Jon-Allan Butterworth, the paracyclist who lost an arm in a rocket attack in Iraq and went on to win three silver medals at the Paralympic Games in London. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

A Few Good Men

July 29th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

In case you’ve haven’t had enough of phenomenal previews from the newest edition of Love Magazine, take a sneak peek at Alessandra Ambrosio, as a dashing naval sailor in Boo George (London: Streeters London, Los Angeles: Streeters Los Angeles, New York: Streeters New York)‘s beautiful story from Issue No. 6. Alessandra is worlds away from her bombshell persona and she disappears into her role with panache. Sporting naval inspired looks selected by Anders Solvsten Thomsen, Alessandra looks phenomenal. We’re excited to see the rest of the story, which also features George Barnett, Alexander Beck, Sid Ellisdon, Danny Fox, Julius Gerhardt, Tommy Kristiansen, Robert Knighton, Kate King & Hannah Noble.
