The Lady is a Vamp

March 20th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The biannual Vamp—cheekily subtitled “a magazine about women on top”—celebrates its first birthday with the release of the new Spring 2015 issue, complete with four powerful covers, starring Versus’ new creative director Anthony Vaccarello with his muse Mica Arganaraz, along with Hilary Rhoda, Jessica Miller, and Drake Burnette with David Agbodji. Dedicated to powerful women, the magazine brings together art, fashion, and culture, with features on the painter Anh Duong and the actress and muse Rossy De Palma. Miller amps up the sex appeal while Burnette and Agbodji offer a sculptural look at the season’s sharpest collections. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the new issue below.

T Magazine China: Pride of Place

March 13th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For the inaugural issue of T Magazine China Fei Fei Sun takes pride of place in the meditative cover story “A Moment of Momentum” photographed by Paola Kudacki (Camilla Lowther Management). The ensuing editorial evokes a balanced landscape with harmonizing elements of design, Fei Fei as its axis. Beautifully contoured and contrasting styling courtesy of Lucia Liu summons a zen symmetry against the minimalistic, sparing scenery. Operating within the spatial compositions Liu artfully utilizes silvery two-tones scarce in color and simple contours to help realize that moment of momentum. For the two cover images Fei Fei wears a more graphically ornamented dress from Louis Vuitton’s S/S 2015 collection. Slick wispy hair by Kevin Ryan and satiny makeup from Sil Bruinsma (Streeters New York) instill essences of romanticism and nature within the coldness of the rock garden of shape and line. An equally meditative fashion film accompanies the story, seen below. In it the Chinese model’s airy, tranquil movements are backed by a droning atmospheric track becoming altogether something that feels quite philosophical and culturally appropriate. T China is an extension of its lifestyle and fashion namesake The New York Times Style Magazine.

Women on the Verge

September 24th, 2014 |Posted by

The British menswear magazine HERO has come a long way in just five short years. Since launching in 2008 with a cover story featuring Robbie Wadge, the publication has graduated to rising actors like Dane DeHaan and Bill Skarsgård, both shot by Hedi Slimane, and a uniquely incisive perspective on the fashion scene. Editors in chief Fabien Kruszelnicki and James West expand their portfolio this week with the launch of a women’s title, named, appropriately enough, HEROINE. “We’ve constantly been asked when a women’s version of HERO would be coming out,” Kruszelnicki and West explain, “and we have always known that we didn’t want to make a straight copy of HERO for women. HEROINE has a different vision, but with all of the same energy.”

That energy can be seen vibrantly throughout the inaugural issue, which can be seen in an exclusive preview below, starting with cover star Juno Temple, interviewed by Daniel Radcliffe. Paola Kudacki shoots the iconic Hilary Rhoda as the epitome of the “modern woman,” writer-slash-actress Brit Marling takes a starring role, and designer features on Saint Laurent, Paul Smith, and Balenciaga, find their place alongside a convergence of Prada with the artist Carsten Höller, who opens up his latest exhibition to the Fall collection. The emphasis throughout is on power and drive, two features that Kruszelnicki and West believe exemplify the HEROINE reader. “We really wanted to make a magazine that was intelligent, that blended fashion with current affairs, culture, and genuinely interesting interviews with strong, aspirational, driven women,” they say. “It’s about an attitude that transcends generations rather than trends, but we also love celebrating fashion and style. All of these things feed into a complete picture of modern society, coming together to represent a modern woman.”

Vamping It Up

September 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Since its debut Vamp Magazine has been about powerful women, the kind who command attention whether they’re in the boardroom or on the catwalk. Issue No. 2 centers around the theme of personality – big, bombastic personalities that draw people in – the idea is hammered home via the five cover stars – Malgosia Bela, Binx Walton, Lily McMenamy, Suvi Koponen and Kim Peers women admired for their ability to bring something different to the table. The editorial content follows suit with arresting new fashion stories, each one bolder than the last – take a first look below.

Club Tropicana

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

This has been, in many ways, the winter of our discontent, with biting snow and freezing winds long outstaying their welcome into April. Spanish menswear bible Hercules Universal offers a rejuvenating missive from the sunlit Iberian peninsula with their latest issue, which comes with the promising title “Club Tropicana” stamped on its electric blue cover. Otto Pierce lounges on the pristine sands of Mexico’s Riviera Maya in Paola Kudacki’s saturated cover feature, wearing some of the season’s brightest pieces styled by Francesco Sourigues. Bruno Staub captures new face Carter in Kim Jones’ all-American, California-dreaming designs in a Louis Vuitton feature with fashion by Miguel Arnau. Dan Glaser visits a Provençal paradise in an architectural study of the minimalist G House in Bonnieux, a gleaming box of glass and concrete set in the woods of the French countryside. There is a hint of darkness amongst the light as well, in the edgy video accompanying the cover story, which finds Pierce splashing around in the dark surf in just a pair of Saint Laurent leather pants, in Daniel Riera’s Fall 2014 preview, which captures Jason Anthony in tough looks chosen by Sourigues from a season that seems far away but will be here all too soon. But, rather than diminishing the glow, these shadows serve only to add some sharpening contrast to an issue that, to finish off that line from Shakespeare, is otherwise “made glorious summer by this sun.”
