A Witty Vision

May 28th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Carbon Copy, the cheeky little brother of the unconventional British menswear magazine Client, celebrates its fourth birthday this year, and the latest issue shows some signs of growing up. The nineteenth edition, out this week, comes with a choice of five striking covers, featuring industry favorites Baptiste Radufe, Charlie France, Demy Matzen, and Matvey Lykov along with new face Rhys Pickering, all photographed by Misha Taylor dressed in smooth suiting by Marc Piña. Carbon Copy moves further away from the clean black-and-white purity of Client, with youthful, colorful stories and a new high-grade printing process. The issue demonstrates a witty vision and playful aesthetic, contrasting an evocatively washed-out feature of summer brights with classically elegant portraiture in the main feature “Body Language,” which comes with a sleek accompanying film. Editor-in-chief Ian Cole offers up a faded study of streetwise youth, the final word on an issue packed with the new. There is plenty of variety on offer, but the through line remains, as always, an emphasis on classic imagery, tinted, here, with the brightest shades of young energy.

After looking at thousands of pictures of young men for the past several weeks, we thought we’d throw out some of the faces that stood out to us from the men’s shows.

Clement Chabernaud, star of this season’s Roberto Cavalli campaign by Steven Meisel was our pick for the top most versatile model of the season with 20 plus of the top shows, including Roberto Cavalli, Jil Sander, Versace, DSquared2, Hugo by Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Thierry Mugler, Raf Simons and closing Prada, Giuliano Fujiwara and Missoni. See our interview with the beautiful Frenchman!

Top 50 stars: AJ Abualrub, Jakob Wiechmann, Simon Nessman and Jeremy Young followed closely behind with 15 plus of the top shows.

Last season’s set of MDC top newcomers: Benoni Loos, Charlie France, Danny Schwarz, Francisco Lachowski, Johannes Linder, Jonas Kesseler, Lyle Lodwick, Mark Cox, Nick Rea, Nate Gill, Nicolas Ripolll, Robbie Wadge, Thomas Hoefnagels, Vladimir Ivanov andJakob Hybholt all had tremendous sophomore seasons. Mr. Hybholt and Mr Linder had monster weeks racking 17 plus shows each.

Former MOTW’s to keep your eye on from the shows: Callum, Albert, Douglas Nietzke, Philipp Bierbaum, Isaac Carew

Some familiar faces who are not only looking better than ever, some had their best week ever: Bastiaan Ninaber, Gen Huismans, Gordie Walker, George Barnett, Guy Robinson.

Some new spectacular faces: Silviu Tolu and Tim Boot. (Edited to add Peter Bruder from Future Milan, see below for picture).
