First Look: At Large’s Fifth Issue

April 20th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For their fifth issue, menswear magazine At Large Magazine keeps to their promise to offer a new perspective on the world with a far-reaching exploration of all the possibilities of the new season. Actors Jack Huston and Travis Fimmel take two of the covers, while Kit Butler and Lucky Blue Smith each get their own, along with a fifth by the artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt. Butler’s cover comes from a Louis Vuitton special by Bjorn Iooss and Matthew Marden, who also capture fencer and model Race Imboden as he prepares to compete in the Rio Olympics this summer. Smith takes in the American desert shot by Randall Mesdon and styled by Julie Ragolia, and Carter Smith and Paul Sinclaire find Jesse Shannon and Ryan Keating on a rocky, windswept coast in their cinematic feature. A forty-page portfolio rounds up Los Angeles’s most exciting young artists, and Albert Watson and Paul Sinclaire offer an unconventional look at suiting, starring Francisco Lachowski, Presley Gerber, Nathaniel Visser, Ryan Frederick, and others. Philippe Vogelenzang and Julie Ragolia round up a new generation of rugby talent, and UFC fighter Alan Jouban takes a motorcycle ride for Giampaolo Sgura and Miguel Arnau.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue, on newsstands now, below.

Brave New (and Beautiful) World

March 9th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko


Olivia Jansing by Marcus Ohlsson & Andrew Logan by Philippe Vogelenzang

Beauty Papers is the two issue old publication with a predilection for all things beauty. That much can gathered from its title alone. But one look inside its sophomore release and it’s clear the brainchild of Maxine Leonard steers vehemently clear of any sort of prix fixe beauty others are serving. Beauty Papers is Maxine’s visual adage endeavoring to articulate a more modern language of makeup-ing. Inside is a cosmetic playground, the respective efforts of beauty veterans and photographers letting loose their explorative ideas of application, color and medium. We spoke to its editor in chief Maxine Leonard about the magazine and more, plus check out the preview of issue 1 “Plastics” below.

When did humor come into play for Beauty Papers or into your idea of beauty in general?
Humour like beauty is personal. Our approach is to hopefully inspire, the result in how this is viewed is left to the reader as to whether they sense or identify humour. I think it is emotive, however read. There is no beauty without emotion.

What was the most difficult part of conception for issue 1 (the second issue)?
Beauty Papers is at the start of its journey so we really don’t think in terms of ‘difficult’ because it is a very exciting time for us.

Why “Plastics”?
We chose ‘plastic’ because it defines the world we live in, and it has long been the byword for celebrity culture, the cult of plastic people-‘Fakeness’ is a look and lifestyle pursued by legions of women and men. And then there is the sheer joy of the material itself, the qualities of stretch, transformation and transparency. Plastic is defined by being easily shaped or moulded, which for us, is also a metaphor for how we change and mould ourselves to survive, fit in, and even succeed.

What were some conceptual guidelines and shoot dos and don’ts given out?
We explored the concept visually and culturally and created a collection of inspiration material that we shared with all our collaborators, they asked questions, observed and found their particular perspectives sometimes opening doors on less comfortable issues and ideas we encounter everyday. Plastic was the platform and from this dreams were created of exquisite fantastical extremes and contradictions. Without the dreams and dream makers where would we be? We have an open dialogue with all the artists that work with us but there are no do’s and don’ts. That is what is so exhilarating.

How has your own perspective of editorial beauty changed and what was missing that made you want to start the magazine?
On this journey there have been several occasions that have changed my perspective and made me reevaluate my approach. I interviewed Christiaan for issue 0 and the meeting was timely. He told me I would make mistakes and that it was never about agenda, it was about friends working together. I interviewed Serge Lutens and he told me not to lower my flag. Most importantly I met Valerie who restored my faith and reignited my belief and passion. Beauty Papers is about artists working together and inspiring each other. It is about community and creation, something we felt was lacking.

At Large and in Charge

January 11th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

As the Fall 2016 shows kick off in Europe, American-made At Large Magazine offers its own vision of menswear from this side of the Atlantic, with their latest issue celebrating the new season. Four covers—including the actors Jeremy Irvine and McCaul Lombardi, Simon Nessmann, and a charming illustration by Nick Turner—help set the tone for the newest edition of the magazine, which celebrated its first birthday in December. Taking surfing as a loose theme, the issue offers a disquisition on Hawaii and trips to Malibu with Nessman by Randall Mesdon and Bill Mullen and to Montauk with Brett Staal by Chad Davis with styling by Frank Muytjens. Mesdon collaborates with Turner on a surf-inspired feature combining photography and illustration, while the rising surfer Tyler Warren stars in a profile. Philippe Vogelenzang and Julie Ragolia (Jed Root) take their cues from another sport, soccer, with an active editorial starring Jamie Clarke, while Levi Bradley explores the American West for Mesdon and Ragolia. As always, At Large rounds things out with an intellectual edge, as Joel Meyerowitz writes on the power of Giorgio Morandi, and Paul d’Orléans recounts an epochal period in Hunter S. Thompson’s career.

Take a closer look at the issue, out now, below.

Vogue Man Nederland Debuts

September 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

The international Vogue family gets a bit larger this week, as Vogue Netherlands Man makes its début, joining Vogue Hommes International and L’Uomo Vogue on the European menswear scene and marking a rising Dutch power. Dutchman Bram Valbracht takes the cover in custom Ronald van der Kemp demi couture, inspired by the iconic Seventies actor Rutger Hauer in a meeting of the nation’s growing might in both fashion and modeling. The rest of the issue presents the best of the Low Countries, with all the models coming from either the Netherlands or Belgium.

Valbracht is joined by Sven de Vries, Daan van der Deen, Erik van Gils, Danny Boom, and Simon Paul in a collections story shot by Philippe Vogelenzang and styled by Jos van Heel against the backdrop of the Bijlmer, a bustlingly multicultural neighborhood in Amsterdam. Elsewhere, Marc de Groot and Marije Goekoop dress down the tuxedo on Gustaaf Wassink, and Nicolas Scheltens and Johannes Spaasoffer a new take on suiting for Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumms and van Heel. Anton Corbijn talks his new film Life with rising American star Dane Dehaan (whose surname is Dutch for rooster) and iconoclastic Belgian theater director Ivo van Hove discusses his work with David Bowie, showcasing all the facets of this powerhouse country that punches way above its size. Take a first look at the première issue, out this week, below.

This Charming Man

November 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Where do we begin with Joseph Dolce, the VMan/Ford Models contest winner with the fashionable name and unforgettable face. Considering the heights reached by former V Man winners – campaigns, covers, catwalk struts – it’s safe to say we’ve got high expectations for Mr. Dolce. VMan introduces him to the world via a special video by CyCy Sanders, that provides an animated glimpse into the surreal life of a male model. Inside the magazine, Philippe Vogelenzang and Tom Van Dorpe (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) give a different take on things, with their down to earth, boy next door editorial, while Mario Sorrenti and Robbie Spencer take all the finalists into extreme territory with a sleek menswear story.

Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.
