First Look: Fucking Young!’s Outsider Issue

May 4th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

In its new issue for Spring/Summer 2016, the menswear magazine Fucking Young asks what it means to be an outsider in today’s increasingly interconnected world. Cover star Olly Alexander, actor and lead singer of Years & Years, speaks about being openly gay in the entertainment industry to go along with a colorful feature art directed by Nicola Formichetti and shot by Matt Irwin. The rest of the issue covers other sorts of outsiders, some by choice (nudists) and others less so (the Amish). Designers Demna Gvasalia and Henrik Silvius discuss their singular visions for fashion, while Josh Hight captures a portfolio of models whose unconventional skin only adds to their appeal. Looking abroad, Filip y Kito take a cheeky look at North Korea, and Michiel Meewis and Michael Darlington capture Oliver Greenall, George Admiraal, and Dylan Hartigan in a moody tribute to the iconoclastic director Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Take a first look at the new issue, available for presale here, below.

The Sporting Life

May 23rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The Olympics are right around the corner and magazines are jumping on the bandwagon. Open up nearly any magazine this month and you’ll see a special on the London Olympics and/or a fashion special themed around all things sporty. Which story do you think captures the theme of athleticism, health and fitness best – we’re partial to the editorials that pair models with athletes for the perfect mix of glamour and fitness. Who can resist the sight of Joan Smalls taking of in a sprint while wearing shimmering Ralph Lauren? Or Karlie Kloss balancing on beams alongside gymnast Jonathan Horton! Take a look at the month’s best sporty stories and tell us which one strikes your fancy.

Muse Magazine never fails to excite with its combination of striking fashion editorials and compelling interviews and the latest issue is no exception. Alessandra Ambrosio and Lindsey Wixson grace dual covers that showcase two very different aesthetics: Ale goes futuristic for Chad Pitman with bobbed hair and metallics, while Lindsay is an innocent girl next door in Will Davidson’s shots. Inside you’ll find even more variety with a host of gorgeous new visuals – a few of which you’ll find right here in our preview.

The Luscious Miss Lily

May 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Oh Lily Donaldson, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways!
We’ve watched Lily blossom from ingenue to bombshell and no matter the story she manages to bring a unique elegance to her images. Check her out on the cover of Muse Magazine, looking sensational in a shot by Matt Irwin. Dressed in looks from Prada, Hermes and Vuitton chosen by stylist Darcy Backlar, Lily looks as good as ever. Nicolas Jurnjack‘s glamazon hair and Adrien Pinault‘s understated makeup serve to highlight Lily’s beauty and we’re loving Irwin’s high gloss imagery.

Step It Up!

February 28th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Jerry Hall by Sølve Sundsbø

Fashion and fun are two words that should go together, yet most magazines fail to realize it and that is where Ponystep comes in. Launching during Paris fashion week, the biannual aims to bring the glee back to the pages of magazines where it belongs! Editor in chief Richard Mortimer launched the publication as a website two years ago, but March brings their first print edition. With contributors ranging from Solve Sundsbo, Dan Jackson, Ben Weller, Juergen Teller, Julie Verhoeven and Tim Blanks, you can see why we’re very excited for this one! MDC spoke to Ponystep fashion director, Phoebe Arnold, for a glimpse of all the magazine has to offer.


Daniel Jackson

MDC: How long has ponystep been around and what issue is this?

This is the first issue of Ponystep in print. Ponystep started as an online magazine nearly three years ago, though we haven’t done anything on it for the last six months, we’ve been too busy working on this issue! The website will be relaunching imminently though…


Terry Tsiolis

MDC: Where did the name come from?

It’s a very long and drunken story. It all started out as a bit of a joke and we’ve been stuck with it ever since! It’s quite good though, don’t you think?

Jeneil Williams by Ben Weller

MDC: Why did you choose the models for this cover?

It’s the inspiration issue, and both Kylie Minogue and Jerry Hall are completely inspirational. Actually that’s just an excuse, it was sheer self-indulgence, we just love them.


Hannelore Knuts by Paul Wetherell

MDC: What do you hope to offer that sets you apart from other mags?

We want to make fashion fun again. It’s uncompromising, but still accessible to everybody.

Salute!

October 27th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Vogue Nippon taps into key seasonal trends with a little help from Hanne Gaby Odiele; the lithe beauty appears in Matt Irwin‘s energetic and bright story about sophisticated dressing. Stylist Aurora Sansone chooses sleek separates that highlight Hanne’s best points and represent the current love for all things military, layered and fur encrusted.

Shock Wave

September 25th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

If you saw the Tori Praver cover of Vogue Russia coming then you can count yourself officially ahead of the curve. The curvaceous Hawaii beach babe’s slot on the cover of a magazine usually reserved for the most editorial Eastern European faces was another of the month’s stunning surprises. Do you love it? Are you waiting for the Freaky Friday moment when Anna Selezneva appears in Sports Illustrated? Let us know how you feel!
