Color Theory

February 27th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Anyone can tell you that the main story of Spring 2014 menswear is color, but it takes true conviction and vision to turn a trend into something truly original and inspired. The team behind L’Officiel Hommes Italia have done just that, pulling on the artist inspirations and bold palettes of the latest collections for a new issue that celebrates creativity and vibrancy in all its shades. The Belgian painter Rinus van de Velde, known for his swirling, expressive portraits and scenes, graces the cover, a surprising decision the magazine’s creative director Pablo Arroyo says was entirely appropriate. “Art is a perennial source of inspiration for the fashion world, especially so for spring-summer 2014,” he explains in his editor’s letter. “This is partly the reason L’Officiel Hommes Italia made the unorthodox choice of having an artist on the cover. Not a model/artist or an actor/artist, but an artist artist.” Pulling from the theme of “teoria del colore”—bringing to mind Goethe’s landmark treatise on the essence of color and its effects on human perception and emotions—the issue features the season’s brightest designs on today’s brightest new faces and seasoned veterans.

Tim Schuhmacher and Tommaso de Benedictis are captured by Laurence Ellis in a crayon box of vivid suits styled by Emil Rebek, while Stefan Heinrichs photographed Matthew Bell in a series of dark, rich sportswear selected by Davide Brambilla. Photographer Mark Pillai and stylist Nik Piras take a graphic approach to the latest hues, with sharp images of Matthew Holt shot through with pops of color. And, in a nod to a season in which designers found inspiration in modernist masters from Mondrian and Calder to Klein and Kapoor, Ben Allen plays the young artist at work and at play—for a story by Thomas Lohr with styling by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen—lost in thought in his studio, caught in a moment of quiet reflection, or simply surrounded by the blissful blue of a clear pool straight out of a Hockney painting.

Ten High

January 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there were an award for cover creativity, 10 Magazine would certainly be in the running. The magazine’s off-kilter frontpage never fails to surprise and for spring the lineup is multi-faceted. With an array of rising star models, male and female gracing the covers of 10 and 10 Men, the spring issues with their wry “selfie, platform, hookup, hashtag, digi” text and arresting images are sure to standout on the crowded newsstand.

Double Vision : Alexander Wang

November 15th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As fashion’s current king of downtown cool, Alexander Wang has perfected a look that is both eye-catching and easy going. It isn’t unusual to see Wang’s wares popping up in fashion glossies month after month, but it is interesting to see how his look is interpreted by a variety of talents. One of last season’s most memorable and popular Wang pieces was the fishnet turtleneck, a statement item that adds a touch a mystery to any ensemble. Most stylists didn’t stray too far from the runway vision of this particular look, but every so often the versatility of this staple was showcased via a well-timed change of pace. With the addition of the equally ubiquitous Jil Sander pink overcoat, or a bit of menswear inspired Paul & Joe, the mood shifts completely. That said, the Wang turtleneck looks just as good all by itself, revealing a touch of come-hither skin or adding another layer of sexy to a pop star’s daring repertoire.

Out of This World!

May 21st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Its hard to find a girl whose look is classically appealing and completely otherworldly but Georgina Stojiljkovic manages to be both. With her full lips and streamlined features her face is pitch perfect for beauty shots but there is just a little touch of peculiarity that makes it dynamic. We are treated to far too little of Georgina’s truly distinctive presence but as they say, quality is better than quantity. Mark Pillai taps into the futuristic side of Georgina’s appeal shooting her in the seasons most esoteric ensembles – courtesy of Katie Shillingford‘s on point styling. The story feels trippy, edgy and at times alien, which makes it perfect for the always cutting-edge ethos of Dazed and Confused. Georgina takes on each space-age character perfectly, channelling a myriad of sci-fi heroines while bringing her own allure to each shot.
