In Black & White

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may be better-known as the season for bright prints and colors, but the latest issue of upscale menswear magazine Varon Magazine makes a very convincing argument for the purity and sharp beauty of clean black-and-white. Ben Gorham, founder of the exclusive Byredo fragrance collection, stars in the sharp cover story, lensed by Lonny Spence with styling by Varon’s fashion director Hugo Lavín, while the rest of the magazine is filled with many of the industry’s top new faces in a range of the season’s top designs. Bright young Brits Matthew Bell and Tom Gaskin can be seen in the main collections story, photographed by co editor in chief Nacho Pinedo and dressed by Lavín, while Elliot Vulliod is the centerpiece of a feature on the idiosyncratic designer Umit Benan. But for all its celebration of the here and now, the issue offers a sneak peek ahead as well, with an exclusive preview of Fall 2014 from rising British designer Craig Green captured by Piczo with a clinical austerity softened by gentle portraits that add just the right touch of sensitive emotion. Check out their Instagram page for more beautiful visuals.

High Voltage

February 26th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

To emerge among the several quarterly and biannual publications out there, a competitive magazine has to carve out its niche and present unique, arresting content. Doing just that (and then some), London-based Volt Magazine has amassed an impressive offering for its Issue No. 15. In collaboration with French brand The Kooples, Volt has multiple cover stories for Spring 2014, including Idina May Moncrieffe photographed by Luc Coiffait and Jeremy Dufour shot by Dean Rogers. Generating a comprehensive look at trademark London aesthetics, Volt achieves a captivating balance between urban style and high fashion fantasy. On one hand, there’re “Ordinary Boys” Michael Sharp and Reece Sanders styled by Christopher Preston and a shoot by Piczo, while Jamie Bochert embodies fashion editor Victoria Adcock’s “Femme Severe” and Nick Knight photographs Cynthia Lawrence-John’s stylings in “She Sells Sanctuary.”  Haven’t gotten your high voltage fix? Don’t worry, there’s even more inside Volt 15.
