Two of a Kind

January 19th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its latest issue for Spring/Summer 2016, the artsy Parisian menswear magazine turns to two of today’s most striking faces, Jackson Hale and Sol Goss, for a cover pairing photographed by Jackie Nickerson that celebrates individuality and creativity, a couple of the publication’s touchstones. Within, Kim Jones dresses the two models in vintage pieces celebrating the punk collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, while James Giles and Niklas Bildstein Zaar capture an otherworldly landscape of sea, stone and lava. Photographer Kira Bunse (Shotview Photographers Management) partners with founders Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin to celebrate the iconic, anarchic films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, while CG Watkins and Rich Aybar riff on real estate and the collapse of the American dream in “Management.” Oliver Hadlee Pearch (Camilla Lowther Management) and Benjamin Kirchhoff ( D + V Management) riff on a military vibe, and Josh Hight and Julian Ganio, demonstrating the ability to see things differently that is one of MASSES’s key strengths, find surprising variety in the blandest of colors in “Beige est beige”.

Take an exclusive first look at the issue—available on Thursday exclusively at Dover Street Market, London, and Trading Museum Comme des Garçons, The Broken Arm, and Colette, Paris, and worldwide a week later—below:

For The Masses

May 21st, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

The Spring 2015 men’s shows are less than a month away, and upstart Parisian menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is already pointing the way ahead with their upcoming Summer/Fall issue. New face Pierre Lanoe takes the cover spot with a striking close-up lensed by Bruna Kazinoti, leading off a feature that offers up a taste of schoolboy chic with cheeky suits styled by Niklas Bildstein Zaar. The rest of the issue, seen here in an exclusive preview, has a workmanlike theme, with a retro-tinged study of aviation by CG Watkins and Reto Schmid’s dissection of cubicle boredom, both with fashion by Sacha Quintin and Eric Diulein. The sharp biannual also offers a look ahead at Fall, with a stark portfolio of the season’s most desirable coats from Dior Homme, Givenchy, and others. Promising new faces are aplenty throughout, demonstrating a distinct creative vision and a keen eye for what’s to come.
