First Look: Hercules ❤ New York

September 26th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

The heavyweight Spanish menswear magazine Hercules Universal is no stranger to the long-distance haul, having devoted previous issues to far-flung locales like China and South Africa. The Fall 2013 issue finds itself a bit closer to home, focusing on the vibrant energy of the world’s capital, New York City. Several of the most talented photographers and stylists working today join forces in the eclectic stories, which showcase the beautiful Fall collections against the backdrop of the ever-changing city. Polish photographer Maciek Kobielski‘s stark black-and-white cover story features the Dane Mathias Lauridsen styled by Swede Zara Zachrisson and Darcy Backlar (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists), all of whom, like many in these pages—and countless immigrants before them— now call New York home. David Agbodji takes a star turn with an uptown elegance in Bruno Staub (De Facto)’s gorgeous feature styled by Miguel Arnau. Sean O’Pry brings his timeless cool to the city streets in Txema Yeste‘s contemplative story with styling by Francesco Sourigues.

The rest of the roster is equally strong, with newer faces like Dominik Bauer, Tidiou M’Baye, O’Shea Robertson and Louis Steyaert taking their places alongside seasoned pros like Clement Chabernaud, Marcel Castenmiller, Miles McMillan—and a few veterans like RJ Rogenski and Aiden Shaw—in features lensed by Giampaolo Sgura, Carlotta Manaigo, Ben Weller, Axel Lindahl, and Zachary Hadley. The rich stories offer small peeks into the city’s bustling diversity, proof that even a lifelong New Yorker can always find something new and exciting just around the corner.

The Poly Principal

October 27th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Natasha Poly guest edits Vogue Espana and the magazine produces one of its chicest issues to date: coincidence? We think not! Inside you’ll find insight into the world of Poly, complete with a glimpse at her home and her fairytale wedding. The compelling content shows Natasha as a world-class model, but it also reveals other sides of the Russian beauty. Did you know Natasha is a beauty expert? She even does double duty as makeup artist on Maciek Kobielski‘s story, creating a glossy black lip and smoky eye with precision.

Bits & Bytes: Visionary + Visionaire

April 28th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

amvisionaire
Visionaire‘s next issue will be a tribute to Alexander McQueen. Here’s the preview for it on Visionaireworld. Going to have to fork out the $295 for this one. (Image from Visionaireworld)

Fashion news:

A lot of you may know Dusan Reljin‘s name from his wonderful work as a photographer. But did you know he just designed a sunglasses collection for Selima; featured here on Style.com.

Anna Dello Russo is the best! See Anna’s life story in Japanese manga format. I still can’t decide 100% if it is really her blog but it’s so over the top, it probably is.

This incredible fashion shoot by Simon Procter for Vs Magazine is given some good lovin’ by Sans Artifice.

Photography news:

Mert & Marcus‘ ex assistant chats to Love Magazine. Besides being talented; Angelo Pennetta is very, very funny.

The next photographer duo? The German duo of Billy und Hells are worth a look.

Miscellaneous:

Many of you know that Tara Subkoff is recovering from brain cancer. Read her interview with Harper’s Bazaar about her journey.

I’ve met Justin Gelband and he most definitely is intense. I see why Victoria’s Secret stars and Sports Illustrated beauties go to him to be trained.

I loved American Elle growing up in the 80′s. It was joyful, inclusive and still aspirational. Jezebel compares the 1986 May issue with this month’s issue.

Did Anna Wintour really have a brief affair with Bob Marley in the 70′s? Oh Anna you naughty girl, you.

You gotta love Jezebel playing detective. Is Kimora Lee Simmons head really on Daria Werbowy’s body?

Modeling news:

Ohhhh yeaaaahhh! It’s about time. Models edge out celebrities for fashion ads. WWD lists some of the major houses for fall.

Models Myf Shepherd (who is in art school) and Rachel Rutt are doing anonymous interviews with fashion insiders for MUTT; should be quite interesting.

Casting director Julia Samersova talks to MSN about the new faces of tomorrow (including Estee Lauder faces Liu and Constance).

Love Magazine takes a “boob break” and has casting director Michelle Lee pick her favorite new “androgynous” girls.

Speaking of boobs, here are Jonathan Leder’s pics/video of his new work for Jacques. His work always seem tasteful and respectful to women; some consider him the anti Terry.

Hmmm, what are those birds diving towards? Click here to see more polaroids of great new face Johannes Niermann. Johannes walked Burberry, Zegna, Prada and Viktor & Rolf this past January.

Mr. Ward

April 6th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Tony Ward continues to push the boundaries: the always expressive Mr. Ward stars in Maciek Kobielski‘s sexy series for Vogue Hommes International and shows off quite a bit of skin. There is just something about Tony, whether he is stripped down to his Calvins or sporting a Dior Homme tux, Tony remains one of the most original and dynamic forces in male modeling.
