All in the Details

August 11th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

We called it a casting coup when Details assembled ten top models for the cover of their March 2014 issue, but they’ve outdone themselves for Fall, with a grand total of thirty-one outstanding faces appearing on the front of the new September issue out today. Longtime favorites like Brad Kroenig, Mark Vanderloo, Gabriel Aubry, Tyson Ballou, and Will Chalker are joined by newer faces, from Clark Bockelman and Daisuke Ueda to Arthur Gosse and Jackson Hale, photographed by Mark Seliger and all dressed in Calvin Klein’s different lines by Matthew Marden, with casting by Edward Kim. The accompanying feature within shows off the wide range of options for Fall, from slick suiting to sharp sportswear. Chalker proves his enduring appeal with a solo feature in sophisticated suits photographed by Greg Kadel and styled by Bill Mullen, while photographer Michael Schmelling and stylist Annie Psaltiras take on the season’s edgy knits in an athletic feature starring pro skaters Christian Hosoi and Haden McKenna. And Fall may be the season of colder temperatures and cloudy skies, but to prove it’s not all gloomy weather, Christopher Griffith and Marden celebrate the brighter side in an editorial starring Abiah Hostvedt and Kendall Harrison in vibrant outerwear. Take a look at our preview of the new issue below.

First Look: ODDA #8, The Decades Issue

March 6th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Talk about ambition. To celebrate their third anniversary, ODDA Magazine’s latest issue celebrates well over a hundred years of fashion, stretching from Charles Frederick Worth’s turn­ of the­ century couture to the menswear we’ll be wearing next fall. “The decision about making a Decades issue talking about the history of fashion was due to my fascination for this industry and how we evolved from the past to the present, always looking at how the past made us who we are now,” explains editor ­in­ chief David Martin.

He and his team have pulled together a collection of snapshots of years past, starting with eight different covers, each representing a different decade. Paris Hilton pops in Moschino for the Nineties, while Baptiste Giabiconi channels Brando for the Fifties. The pages within celebrate the legacies of Ferragamo, Balenciaga, and Givenchy—the originals—as well as current designers who return time and again to touchstone eras, from the elegance of Ralph Lauren’s Thirties to Vivenne Westwood’s punk Seventies.

The issue is awash with contradictions and different perspectives. Alex Loomans is straight out of Gatsby and Thorben Gartner marks the current day in Italo Zucchelli’s sporty designs. Lieke Van Houten and Nicolas Ripoll embody the romanticism of Forties Spain in Dolce & Gabbana and Daan van der Deen wears Calvin Klein to relive the athletic Nineties. For an industry that is constantly obsessed with what’s new and what’s next, the issue offers a primer on where we came from, answering, gloriously and powerfully, the eternal question of how we got here with a preview of where we’re headed. Take a look at an exclusive preview below.

Modern Day Heroes

May 23rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Sometimes, less is more. Such is the case with DSECTION Magazine, the Portuguese menswear magazine that, next week, moves from a bimonthly to a biannual format with their supersized Spring/Summer issue. Two covers shot by Danielle Levitt spotlight some of the brightest new faces of today: Simon James, Joseph Dolce, and Gabriel Marques, dressed by the multitalented Nicola Formichetti in his first collection for Diesel.

Following on the theme of “Modern-Day Heroes,” the issue explores different strains of strength and bravery, from the fresh, vibrant energy of the cover story to the contained power of Frederico Martins’ calm editorial, with sleek, easy clothes selected by Nelly de Melo Gonçalves. Clark Bockelman, Alex Dunstan, and Matt Trethe stare down the camera in James White’s feature, with styling by Christopher Preston, while Nicolas Ripoll and Matthew Holt offer an elegant preview of Fall 2014, again from the team of Martins and de Melo Goncalves. Paolo Zerbini offers up a study of youthful aggression with Paolo Zagoreo’s edgy streetwear, while Thomas Goldblum presents a more refined take with his classic portraits with styling by Benoit Martinengo. The only downside is knowing we’ll have to wait six months to see the next issue.

Definition of Dapper

April 7th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Dapper Dan is an exciting new Greek magazine launch with a decidedly esoteric point of view. Focusing on inspiring imagery instead of what’s trendy, the black and white publication represents something very different. Its main editorial, shot by Vassilis Karidis features Nicolas Ripoll looking carefree in Lanvin as he waltzes through the streets of Paris.

Raw Power

July 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Karim Sadli‘s latest story for Dazed and Confused is pure, simple and completely fresh. Nicolas Ripoll poses in a series of jet black ensembles, each one more eye-catching than the last. Whether he is showing off a leather jacket or a dramatically laced bondage inspired piece Ripoll looks right at home in everything. Robbie Spencer‘s styling is a pitch perfect compliment for Sadli’s stripped down style and each element combines to create a uniquely powerful visual.
