Jaden Smith Fronts GQ Style

March 17th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

GQ Style UK hops around the globe in their Spring/Summer issue, featuring superstar Jaden Smith lensed by Terry Tsiolis on the cover. Smith has become known for his penchant for womenswear, but this feature finds him dressed in sharp suiting and sportswear. Inside, British model Oliver Cheshire takes a trip to Los Angeles, embodying the bright hues and body culture of Venice’s Muscle Beach for a feature and video shot by Doug Inglish and styled by Luke Day. Cheshire captures the laid-back SoCal vibe as he practices pull ups and roller skates in the California sun, all with a cheeky Eighties style. Elsewhere, Daniel Sannwald and Elgar Johnson capture the vibrant energy of Jamaica in a Philipp Plein feature showcasing the designer’s rockstar style against the bright colors and pounding music scene of the Caribbean island.

Take a first look at the issue below. See the full shoots in the spring summer issue of GQ Style, on sale now.

Brave New (and Beautiful) World

March 9th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko


Olivia Jansing by Marcus Ohlsson & Andrew Logan by Philippe Vogelenzang

Beauty Papers is the two issue old publication with a predilection for all things beauty. That much can gathered from its title alone. But one look inside its sophomore release and it’s clear the brainchild of Maxine Leonard steers vehemently clear of any sort of prix fixe beauty others are serving. Beauty Papers is Maxine’s visual adage endeavoring to articulate a more modern language of makeup-ing. Inside is a cosmetic playground, the respective efforts of beauty veterans and photographers letting loose their explorative ideas of application, color and medium. We spoke to its editor in chief Maxine Leonard about the magazine and more, plus check out the preview of issue 1 “Plastics” below.

When did humor come into play for Beauty Papers or into your idea of beauty in general?
Humour like beauty is personal. Our approach is to hopefully inspire, the result in how this is viewed is left to the reader as to whether they sense or identify humour. I think it is emotive, however read. There is no beauty without emotion.

What was the most difficult part of conception for issue 1 (the second issue)?
Beauty Papers is at the start of its journey so we really don’t think in terms of ‘difficult’ because it is a very exciting time for us.

Why “Plastics”?
We chose ‘plastic’ because it defines the world we live in, and it has long been the byword for celebrity culture, the cult of plastic people-‘Fakeness’ is a look and lifestyle pursued by legions of women and men. And then there is the sheer joy of the material itself, the qualities of stretch, transformation and transparency. Plastic is defined by being easily shaped or moulded, which for us, is also a metaphor for how we change and mould ourselves to survive, fit in, and even succeed.

What were some conceptual guidelines and shoot dos and don’ts given out?
We explored the concept visually and culturally and created a collection of inspiration material that we shared with all our collaborators, they asked questions, observed and found their particular perspectives sometimes opening doors on less comfortable issues and ideas we encounter everyday. Plastic was the platform and from this dreams were created of exquisite fantastical extremes and contradictions. Without the dreams and dream makers where would we be? We have an open dialogue with all the artists that work with us but there are no do’s and don’ts. That is what is so exhilarating.

How has your own perspective of editorial beauty changed and what was missing that made you want to start the magazine?
On this journey there have been several occasions that have changed my perspective and made me reevaluate my approach. I interviewed Christiaan for issue 0 and the meeting was timely. He told me I would make mistakes and that it was never about agenda, it was about friends working together. I interviewed Serge Lutens and he told me not to lower my flag. Most importantly I met Valerie who restored my faith and reignited my belief and passion. Beauty Papers is about artists working together and inspiring each other. It is about community and creation, something we felt was lacking.

Modern Day Rebels

March 4th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Issue 4 of Re-Edition Magazine declares “We have everything and we have nothing” (by way of Bukowski) and with that obscure aphorism offers up its ink to the foremost underground talents who stay true to their own nonconformist roots.  Six covers so seemingly simple they’re beyond any traces of superficiality. With Re-Edition, content is king and creative forces like Willy VanderperreHarley WeirCollier Schorr, Mark BorthwickRobbie SpencerLotta Volkova and designer Gosha Rubchinskiy see to that in a respective effort. Casting underlines the lesser seen, but captures the defining spirit of the modern day rebel. The styling’s rakish, the faces are unique and the visuals equal it all–everything and nothing, too.
