When photographer Ian Cole founded CLIENT Magazine in late 2010, his mission was to “use a fashion dialogue to explore youth and masculinity” through rich, authentic black-and-white photography, idiosyncratic styling, and the industry’s top and up and coming faces. Now the publication has graduated from newsprint to perfect-bound paperbacks, and publishes four times a year, with the latest issue celebrating the consistently intriguing magazine’s third anniversary. A trio of covers offer the choice between the established and the brand-new, with the fantastic Ben Allen photographed by Cole himself on one, a grinning Charlie James—his mouth still full of braces—by Anna Victoria Best on another and a pensive Dominik Sadoch by Matt Lambert on the 3rd. Inside, Reece Sanders takes a quiet, contemplative turn in Charlotte Hadden’s editorial, while Emmanuel Giraud‘s New Madison portfolio showcases classic faces like Arran Sly, Alexandre Cunha, Nathaniel Visser and Tom Webb. Stories by Sam Scott Schiavo and Jeremy Kost help round out the issue, which marks a confident step forward in Client’s continuing evolution.
