Optology Issue #3

July 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

When Jonathan Arundel launched his photography and fashion journal Optology Magazine last year, he quickly established a high standard for the publication’s content and design, with rich, gorgeous stories and a sui generis, pared-down aesthetic. The latest issue, the third, is no different, starting from the charming portrait of a smiling Ben Allen that graces the glowing yellow cover. The features within hew to the quiet vision of the magazine, which bills itself as “dedicated to showcasing the finest photography and styling talent.” The cover story within, shot by Harry Carr with styling by Hannah Elwell, captures a new maturity in the young Allen, while Elliot Vulliod headlines his own story and up-and-comers like Dylan Fosket and Karlis Adlers are featured as well. Thomas Giddings gives us a pensive feature starring Andreas Lindquist with styling by Andreas Kokkino, with a gentle mood that carries over into Fanny Latour-Lambert (Walter Schupfer Management)’s images (styling by Optology’s fashion director Madeleine Østlie), which offer hushed slices of thoughtful youth at play.

A New Hero

May 6th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Recent years have seen a burst of independent magazines, but few have risen with quite the speed of HERO Magazine, the London-based men’s mag launched in 2009. What began as a DIY celebration of fashion and models has turned into a major force on the scene, with cover stories of rising Hollywood stars by Hedi Slimane and impressive portfolios on culture and society. The latest issue, with actor Bill Skarsgård on the cover, offers another look at the possibilities of print, with a vigorous fifty-page feature shot by Hero cofounder Fabien Kruszelnicki and styled by Elizabeth Fraser-Bell. Karlis Adlers is found amidst a house in ruins, offering a look ahead at Fall 2014’s most desirable looks, all of them accentuated by his shock of platinum-blond hair. Take a look at our exclusive preview below, and see the full story in the new issue, available at Hero-Magazine.com.
