Artistic Inspiration

April 10th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The menswear scene has taken an artistic bent of late, with a new season rife with references to painters, sculptors, and other creative minds. Spanish magazine Fucking Young offers a direct appeal in their latest edition, with a Spring issue built around the theme of the museum. Michiel Meewis offers a striking cover image, with Bastiaan Van Gaalen dressed by Ginger Clark in Kenzo’s wave-print coat, his face painted in a riot of soft white strokes. The stories within offer a refreshing variety of artistic scope, from Phil Dunlop’s rich Victorian-inspired portraits to Jay Schoen’s sleek study of pure minimalism, the latest rewards of the long and lasting interaction between fashion and art. Order online here.

How ready is everyone for spring? Spanish magazine Fucking Young‘s new issue, with the theme of ‘1997’, certainly brightens the blustery day with a delightful dose of the coolest male models garbed in eye catching pieces by Burberry, Ermenegildo Zegna, Fred Perry and more.
