Spring into Spring

March 5th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The march of the March issues is just around the corner, but American upstart menswear magazine Essential Homme gets a head start with their February/March issue, out now with a striking Hugh Dancy on the cover shot by Kevin Sinclair (See Management) and styled by editor Terry Lu. The issue marks the changing of the seasons as we spring into spring, with a celebration of orange—which makes a case for color of the moment on Ian Sharp—and a wealth of new takes on denim as worn by RJ King. Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo fame take the spotlight, as does chill wave singer Twin Shadow, who also DJed the magazine’s blowout bash during New York Fashion Week. Russell Giardina shows off the new direction Michael Maccari is taking at Perry Ellis, while Markus Ziegler captures the season’s nautical theme in a feature styled by Adrian Manuel. Amid all the upbeat cheer, Philipp Bierbaum and Laurie Harding offer a darker look in a collections feature photographed by Marco Falcetta and styled by Rebecca Baglini, focusing on the edgier edges of the months to come.

The In Crowd

July 8th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

A gathering of cool kids will always be a fashion moment unto itself and Steven Meisel taps into that idea for the latest issue of Vogue Italia. Instead of an otherworldly setting Meisel enlists Edie Campbell, Lexi Boling, Amanda Murphy, Vanessa Moody, Julia NobisMeghan CollisonRJ King, Yuri Pleskun, David Axell, Geron McKinley, Dorian Reeves, David Alexander Flinn, Cameron Keesling and Tobias Hayduk for a pared down shoot that recreates the look and feel of a happening cafe setting. Mariana Santana and Anna Ewers join the fun in the accompanying editorial where models blow smoke rings as they sport heavy black liner and subtly 60s style coifs for a look that nods to the retro without being too referential. As usual Mary Howard‘s production design is flawless and the New Wave vibes are hammered home by Pat McGrath‘s makeup and Guido Palau‘s hair.

The Weavers of Lim

May 12th, 2011 |Posted by jonathanshia

Fashion videos are a dime a dozen these days, but leave it to 3.1 Phillip Lim to really do it right. The label’s new video “Weavers“, shot in Palm Springs, presents the stark, graphic F/W 2011 men’s collection against the blank, imposing surfaces of the desert town’s California modernist architecture. Directed by Andrew Paynter with a propulsive soundtrack from Sebastien Perrin, the film features RJ King, Miles Frank, and new face Craig (all cast by Daniel Peddle) striding across vacant parking lots and along sun-bleached stone walls with heroic purpose.

The short feels like a natural progression from Lim’s January presentation in Paris, all sharp lines and clean minimalism. The video, as Lim explained on Nowness.com, where it had its premiere yesterday, is an “attempt to capture that experience of seeing someone in snatches,” a reflection of the fragmented nature of contemporary life and unifying power . “It’s just three strangers going about their day. They cross paths, and feel a kindred spirit because of the way they dress.” (story by Jonathan Shia)
