First Look: ODDA #8, The Decades Issue

March 6th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Talk about ambition. To celebrate their third anniversary, ODDA Magazine’s latest issue celebrates well over a hundred years of fashion, stretching from Charles Frederick Worth’s turn­ of the­ century couture to the menswear we’ll be wearing next fall. “The decision about making a Decades issue talking about the history of fashion was due to my fascination for this industry and how we evolved from the past to the present, always looking at how the past made us who we are now,” explains editor ­in­ chief David Martin.

He and his team have pulled together a collection of snapshots of years past, starting with eight different covers, each representing a different decade. Paris Hilton pops in Moschino for the Nineties, while Baptiste Giabiconi channels Brando for the Fifties. The pages within celebrate the legacies of Ferragamo, Balenciaga, and Givenchy—the originals—as well as current designers who return time and again to touchstone eras, from the elegance of Ralph Lauren’s Thirties to Vivenne Westwood’s punk Seventies.

The issue is awash with contradictions and different perspectives. Alex Loomans is straight out of Gatsby and Thorben Gartner marks the current day in Italo Zucchelli’s sporty designs. Lieke Van Houten and Nicolas Ripoll embody the romanticism of Forties Spain in Dolce & Gabbana and Daan van der Deen wears Calvin Klein to relive the athletic Nineties. For an industry that is constantly obsessed with what’s new and what’s next, the issue offers a primer on where we came from, answering, gloriously and powerfully, the eternal question of how we got here with a preview of where we’re headed. Take a look at an exclusive preview below.

Fashion Fairy Tales

February 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For the Spring 2014 edition, CR Fashion Book is all about Fairy Tales, and Disney better watch out. Per usual, Issue 4 features dual covers, two fashion-forward updates of childhood fantasies shot by Sebastian Faena and Bruce Weber.


Dressing up Spielberg’ classic film, CR’s “E.T.” revisits the 1982 blockbuster with Lindsey Wixson in the role of Gertie (with much better clothes, of course). Photographer  Sebastian Faena brings his trademark for cinematic imagery to iconic scenes pulled from the original film, including the bicycle flying over the moon and E.T.’s glowing fingertips. Magda Laguinge and male model Abel Van Oeveren join Lindsey in showcasing Spring fashions from Prada, Miu Miu, and Proenza Schouler. /

For Bruce Webers take on “Fairy Tales,” CR tapped newcomer and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offspring Gigi Hadid to star in a hippie-style story. Combining wilderness whimsy with pieces from Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, and Hermès, Weber’s story spotlights Carine Roitfeld’s penchant for striking the perfect balance of hi-lo fashion. Playful, sensual, and super cool, this cover story looks like a perfect spring daydream.

August 22nd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Bon Magazine returns for fall with a full slate of fashion showcased via sleek editorial content.

The stunning Jacquetta Wheeler returns on dual covers in head to toe Balmain, but the extravagant fashion is balanced by natural setting and stripped down photography style. Inside beautiful new stories starring Kel MarkeyMyla DalbesioMagda Laguinge, Grace MaharyTatiana Cotliar and Maud Welzen run the gamut from avant garde explorations of the season’s minimal wares to striking black and white images shot on the streets of New York.
