First Look: Document Journal

April 29th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The soon-to-be-out S/S ’16 issue of Document Journal is a who’s who of the here and now, and if the 8 covers fronted by fashion’s royalty like Hedi Slimane and Grace Coddington didn’t tip you off, then here’s the inside to take you there. Between the amusing and uncommon imaginings of collaborators like Willy Vanderperre and Olivier RizzoColin Dodgson and Joe McKennaRoe Ethridge and Robbie Spencer to the pleasurably picturesque–like Coco Capitan‘s unassuming take on Lena Hardt or Venetia Scott‘ suburban-backdropped portraits styled by Sarah Richardson, there’s probably nowhere better to be. Starting now, Richardson will be the magazines new fashion director. Casting goes full out too, to good effect thanks to Piergiorgio Del Moro and Samuel Ellis Scheinman: models Stella TennantRianne van RompaeyAlice MetzaEstella Boersma plus more, use their respective demand to bring the issue to the far side of choicest.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.

Spring Forward

January 29th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

You wouldn’t know it from the frigid cold gripping New York City at the moment, but spring is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: new campaigns. After our round­ups of the best Spring 2014 womenswear ads (here and here), we thought it was time to give the guys their fair due. Here’s our picks for some of our favorite men’s campaigns for the season, all of them featuring rich explosions of color to help us through these dreary, gray winter days.

tumblr_mz1q7argpR1r4ps7po1_12801-763x1024
Hugo Boss HUGO line
Last July, photographer Pierre Debusschere hit the Utah salt flats—home of the famed land­speed trials so powerfully illuminated in Rachel Kushner’s breakout 2013 novel The Flamethrowers— for Hugo Boss’ energetic, athletic younger label. Victor Nylander, Sung Jin Park, and Andrew Westermann are joined by Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Kasia Struss and the lambent, translucent hues of what look like shimmering mirages, add a soft tinge of glowing color to the blinding whiteness of the pristine sodium crust.

222137-800w
Jil Sander
The namesake designer may be once again dearly departed, but she has left her artistic, distinctly modernist fingerprints all over the house’s latest campaign, shot by David Sims. Ben Waters and Edie Campbell wear their sharp, graphic ensembles —distressed plaid for him and tangled florals for her against a faded background combining the strictest geometry with the soft delicacy of nature.

213814-800w
Kenzo
In their second collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari‘s idiosyncratic art magazine Toilet Paper, designers Humberto Leon & Carol Lim have demonstrated their revolutionary talents extend far beyond their charming runway designs. A relaxed Devon Aoki perches upon a trout carried on Paul Boche‘s shoulders, both of them dressed in a soothing, swaying ripple print inspired by the surf of Leon and Lim’s native Southern California and lit by the harsh glow of red neon.

PE_ADS_SS14(1)-5
Patrik Ervell
After making a stunning campaign début with his stark black ­and­ white images of Max Von Isser in an overgrown field last Fall, Ervell enlisted up ­and­ coming photographer Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) for an appropriately luminous series of images that find Michael Lange wearing his sailing­ inspired pieces against the digitally enhanced shine of an impossibly rich and vibrant oceanic sunset.

unnamed-9
Salvatore Ferragamo
The Italian house’s campaigns can sometimes have an anodyne feel of anonymous luxury to them, but Spring finds Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) bringing a vivid pop of classic Modernism to their images. Stalwarts Sean O’Pry and Daria Werbowy bask in the radiant warmth of the sherbet­colored angles and columns that bring to mind the cheery, iconic designs of the Mexican Pritzker Prize–winning architect Luis Barragán.

Raf Mode

January 9th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

RAF SIMONS

Raf Simons has always provided an intellectual take on menswear, so Pierre Debusschere‘s esoteric S/S 13 campaign film is completely in line with Simons’ vision. Mixing dramatic imagery with unexpected narration that sounds like a vintage rock interview, the clip interweaves the Simons’ minimalist menswear vision with the grunge influences that underlined his entire S/S collection. The corresponding still imagery adds a layer of darkness to things with a series of high contrast shots brimming with mystery and slick styling by Robbie Spencer.

Pierre Debusschere on the S/S campaign:”The idea behind this season’s imagery came to life through a discussion between Raf Simons, Marieke Van Dongen and myself – our starting point was the SS13 show with the L.A. feeling and artist Brian Calvin’s world. We texted with Raf about great movies we saw such as ‘Last Days’ by Gus Van Sant and ‘Suspiria’ by Dario Argento. Plus paintings by Steven Shearer and Brian Calvin.

We wanted to talk about a teenager, a fan of music with a dialogue between grunge and nature.From here the mainframe was decided; two boys sitting in a bedroom listening to an interview of someone they’re a fan of. We wanted something real so I didn’t force any movement during the filming process. We used the hair by Guido from the show as a starting point which didn’t place too much much focus on the models’ faces. There could be any teenager underneath this hair.We couldn’t speak about teenagers without talking about an object of desire either, that’s when we decided to include Anne-Catherine Lacroix as the incarnation of a pure teenage dream girl.We’re not talking about sexuality but more feelings and emotions, the awkwardness of a teenage relationship, without saying too much about it.”

Retrospective : Vogue Hommes Japan

November 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Earlier this week it was announced that the consistently stellar Vogue Hommes Japan would be shuttering as part of Conde Nast’s decision to switch their men’s publications globally from Vogue, to GQ Style. Magazines come and go, but Vogue Hommes Japan was something special. Led by Nicola Formichetti and featuring the talents of some of fashion’s biggest names, the mag delved into the artistic, eccentric and boundary pushing side of menswear. Fashion can often be disproportionally focused on the ladies, but Formichetti and co. breathed new life into the world of men’s editorial with an outlook that was bold, brash and always on point. We’re going to miss VHJP and their in-your-face style, take a look back at some of our favorite editorials from the magazine and share your own in the comments.

One Impression of Francis Bacon
Ph. Tim Richardson
Fashion Editor – Shun Watanabe | MU Kristin Gallegos | Hair Cash Lawless

A mind-bending tribute to one of art’s heros, accompanied by an equally compelling film.


Digital Vol. 1 iPad Special
Ph. Pierre Debusschere
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Before gifs became a regular part of our appreciation of editorials, Vogue Hommes Japan was creating content that utilized new media to tell fashion tales in a whole new way.


Ph. Mariano Vivanco
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Gothic glamour at its finest, a theme the magazine has revisited since, but this story holds a special place in our hearts.


Samurai Fiction
Ph. Hedi Slimane
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Pushing past the expected Slimane-isms and into new territory, this story explored the Asian influenced menswear trends in the most beautiful manner all in juicy, pops off the page color. We wish we could order prints of this one!


Glamourama
Ph. Miles Aldridge
Fashion Editor – Shun Watanabe | Makeup – Lloyd Simmonds

High gloss fantasy and saturated colors are Aldridge’s signature style, but this edit gives things a decadent menswear twist that makes things pulsate with energy.


Style & Product
Ph. Santiago & Mauricio Sierra
Fashion Editor – Shun Watanabe
Makeup –  Maud Laceppe | Hair – Diego Da Silva

You might remember this one from MDX recently, Shun Watanabe turned it out with the styling – Thom Browne has never looked this good.


The Americans
Ph. Hedi Slimane
Fashion Editor – Nicola Formichetti

Instant classic!


Bondage Warriors
Ph. Steven Klein
Fashion Editor –  Nicola Formichetti |  Makeup – Kabuki | Hair –  Shon

Steven Klein’s preoccupation with bondage has led to some truly exquisite editorials and this is no exception. Many fashion stories get called edgy, but this one pushed all the limits and it payed off big time.


The Creator of Devotion
Ph. Matthew Stone
Fashion Editor – Matthew Josephs
Makeup – Alex Box |  Hair – James Pecis

Pure beauty from one of the art world’s most exciting talents. Stone is a noted photographer, sculptor, performance artist, curator and more, this story utilizes his talents to create a sumptuous vision that went beyond fashion.


A Glowing Response
Ph. Richard Burbridge
Fashion Editor – Robbie Spencer
Makeup –  Peter Philips

Who says a men’s beauty story has to be dull? Burbridge plays with color and light, while Robbie Spencer’s styling talents are put to good use with the expressive styling.

Paint By Numbers

August 21st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Pierre Debusschere goes above and beyond for Dazed & Confused, creating an inventive series of images filled with painterly panache. Robbie Spencer styles Guerrino Santulliana in Hermes creative director Christophe Lemaire‘s refined interpretation of 80s New Wave style, designed specially for a collaboration with popular Korean brand, Bean Pole.
