Spring into Spring

March 5th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The march of the March issues is just around the corner, but American upstart menswear magazine Essential Homme gets a head start with their February/March issue, out now with a striking Hugh Dancy on the cover shot by Kevin Sinclair (See Management) and styled by editor Terry Lu. The issue marks the changing of the seasons as we spring into spring, with a celebration of orange—which makes a case for color of the moment on Ian Sharp—and a wealth of new takes on denim as worn by RJ King. Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo fame take the spotlight, as does chill wave singer Twin Shadow, who also DJed the magazine’s blowout bash during New York Fashion Week. Russell Giardina shows off the new direction Michael Maccari is taking at Perry Ellis, while Markus Ziegler captures the season’s nautical theme in a feature styled by Adrian Manuel. Amid all the upbeat cheer, Philipp Bierbaum and Laurie Harding offer a darker look in a collections feature photographed by Marco Falcetta and styled by Rebecca Baglini, focusing on the edgier edges of the months to come.

In Black & White

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may be better-known as the season for bright prints and colors, but the latest issue of upscale menswear magazine Varon Magazine makes a very convincing argument for the purity and sharp beauty of clean black-and-white. Ben Gorham, founder of the exclusive Byredo fragrance collection, stars in the sharp cover story, lensed by Lonny Spence with styling by Varon’s fashion director Hugo Lavín, while the rest of the magazine is filled with many of the industry’s top new faces in a range of the season’s top designs. Bright young Brits Matthew Bell and Tom Gaskin can be seen in the main collections story, photographed by co editor in chief Nacho Pinedo and dressed by Lavín, while Elliot Vulliod is the centerpiece of a feature on the idiosyncratic designer Umit Benan. But for all its celebration of the here and now, the issue offers a sneak peek ahead as well, with an exclusive preview of Fall 2014 from rising British designer Craig Green captured by Piczo with a clinical austerity softened by gentle portraits that add just the right touch of sensitive emotion. Check out their Instagram page for more beautiful visuals.
