Essential Homme Celebrates a Half Decade

September 22nd, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Most five-year-olds would be content with little more than an ice-cream cake and a handful of balloons, but not Essential Homme. The menswear magazine celebrates half a decade with five sharp covers for their August/September issue, out now, featuring actors Michael Shannon, Boyd Holbrook, and Shiloh Fernandez, filmmaker Xavier Dolan, and singer Future, all of them men whose flourishing careers point to promising futures. Each cover subject sits for an enlightening shoot and profile within, as do Hermès’ Véronique Nichanian and Steven Kolb, head of the CFDA, who reflects on the inaugural New York Fashion Week Men’s just past. Roberto Sipos embodies the trends of the season, while the military look gets a special focus courtesy of a passel of powerful faces like Serge Rigvava, Ryan Keating, and Ton Heukels. Take a closer look at the new issue below.

RUSSH Goes Abroad

August 4th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The always paradisal Russh Magazine relays their Aussie bliss for the rest of us in “The Global Issue”. A message that is gladly received, especially with the sublime, local muse Gemma Ward fronting the issue splendent in a pastel sundown – photographed by Stephen Ward. Prefacing the editorials, editor in chief Jess Blanch hones in on the issue’s message, “Today our universe seems bigger and more giant than ever and yet somehow we’re now all closer than we ever thought possible … Geography is irrelevant. ‘Home’, an adaptable notion. And suddenly we have the power to be everywhere and yet nowhere, at once.” Destinations abound and abroad, the unmistakable streets of Los Angeles serve as a tinsel backdrop for Blair Getz Mezibov‘s editorial with up-and-comer Chloe Wheatcroft. Or travel to the idyllic Swiss Alps and indulge in the beautiful Laura Kampman photographed by Rahel Weiss. This issue also features Russh’s first ever “Men’s Special” with 48 pages of men’s stories like Reuben Ramacher photographed as a man about town by Nick Hudson and styled by Bridie Gilbert. Finally, pristine is the key word for the beauty story with Katryn Kruger, photographed by Matthew Sprout and teamed by Dale Delaporte and Nina Park, all working finely tuned within the realm of shadows and contrast. The rest of the wanderlust inducing stories can be seen in The “Global” issue when it hits stands August 6th.
