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.

Men In Black

July 8th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

With two simple and effective shots Robbie Fimmano and Karl Templer sum up both sides of Dolce & Gabbana’s iconic mens collections; on one hand you have the old world Italian influences and on the other the debonair and modern luxury. The crisp images featuring Paolo Anchisi, Tyler Riggs, Berthold Rothas, Yuri Pleskun, Clement Chabernaud, Francisco Lachowski, Simon Nessman, Marcel Castenmiller, Max Motta, Michael Wozniak, Taylor Fuchs, Brad Alphonso, Niels Raabe, Mathias Bergh, Ian O’Brien, Laurent Albucher, Matthew Coatsworth, Brett Reeves, Mark Cox and Rodrigo Calazans are the perfect tribute to Dolce’s 20 years of menswear.

One of the Boys

September 30th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Toni Garrn is easily one of the most unforgettable faces in modeling right now but don’t let her pristine beauty fool you, she’s still got what it takes to go up against male modeling’s edgiest boys. Tyler Riggs, Lyle Lodwick, Marcel Castenmiller and Joseph Culp join Toni for David Vasiljevic‘s motorcycle enthusiast themed story for Numero Japan. The whole gang seems right at home sitting on the back of a scooters and motorbikes and Toni is looking very Claudia Schiffer circa Guess.

Prairie Home Companions

June 29th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is a decidedly outdoorsy feel to two of the season’s latest campaigns – both Chloe and Kenzo take the action off the busy city streets and bring it back to nature. Kasia Struss, Sigrid Agren & Karlie Kloss display the muted beige caftans and thigh high boots of Hannah McGibbon’s Chloe collection in an unlikely prairie locale. The image by Mikael Jansson is beautiful and the concept is interesting but the level of beige borders on overkill. For Kenzo’s colorful Mario Sorrenti helmed endeavor Magdalena Frackowiak, Guinevere Van Seenus & Marcel Castenmiller look like flower children as they lay outside on a boldly patterned throw. Which campaign are you enjoying more?

24 Hour Party People

June 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The nightlife scene of early 80s New York was a playground for club kids and jet setters alike and this month Steven Meisel recreates the fun for Vogue Italia. With Meghan Collison, Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Julia Hafstrom, Nimue Smit, Lucas R, Sara Blomqvist, Marcel Castenmiller, Daniel Hicks & Anna de Rijk playing party goers and Karl Templer‘s authentic Reagan-era styling were in for a wonderfully retro ride. Granted, 1980s references have been done to death but there is something appealingly lighthearted about the youthful cast and their vibrant energy that enlivens every shot.
