We may already be looking ahead to the Spring 2016 collections, but L’Officiel Hommes Italia offers a bracing reminder that we still have the crisp days of autumn to come with a Fall/Winter issue, just out last week. A dual cover pairs two superstars, the talented young British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson and social media sensation Lucky Blue Smith—1.1 million Instagram followers and counting—to showcase a meeting of art and celebrity. Carlotta Manaigo captures the new face Tim Dibble in a series of all-black looks with a sophisticated edge, while John Spinks shoots the season’s best collections on the streets of Budapest, starring a mix of Hungarian models and locals. Stefano Pilati’s forward-thinking suiting for Ermenegildo Zegna Couture takes the spotlight, and Mel Bles showcases the new androgyny on Sven de Vries and other new faces. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the issue below.

Details, Details

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

If September is indeed, as they say, the January of fashion, then the new issue of Details Magazine might very well be one of the unofficial almanacs for the new year. The September edition of the menswear bible (with all model casting by Edward Kim) offers a polished look ahead at the new season, starting off with a brooding Idris Elba on the cover. The iconic RJ Rogenski shows off a plush selection of cold-weather options, while newcomers Jeremy Matos and Richard Detwiler take on the latest patterned suits on a big scale. Robbie Fimmano (London: Streeters London, Los Angeles: Streeters Los Angeles, New York: Streeters New York) captures a range of faces old and new in the season’s most desirable Eighties-inspired pieces, and a gorgeous, artistic collaboration between the photographer Lacey and the painter Alexa Meade showcases a clutch of swirling prints in an editorial that harkens back to everyone from Van Gogh to Banksy. Happy New Year!

Super Secret

April 2nd, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Though she became a household name for her Victoria’s Secret persona, Adriana Lima continues to prove it takes more than swimwear to standout at the top. In her cover story for Interview Germany April 2014, the supermodel mainstay is as bold as ever in graphic black and white. Minimal in styles by Julia von Boehm, Adriana’s magnetic gaze and edgy poses captivate under photographer Robbie Fimmano (London: Streeters London, Los Angeles: Streeters Los Angeles, New York: Streeters New York)’s stark shadow play.

Model Details

August 9th, 2013 |Posted by

The September issues keep on coming, and the latest to join the ever-swelling ranks is Details Magazinethe men’s magazine that is making a splash by featuring a pair of supermodels on its cover rather than the usual Hollywood actor. Tyson Ballou and Emily DiDonato put a gorgeous face on the annual Fashion Issue, which is packed with a wealth of options for the cooler months. Ballou’s and Didonato’s sharp basics help liven up a clean, uncluttered cover story by John Balsom, while Shaun De Wet shows off the season’s sleekest suits on the city streets, photographed from above by Robbie Fimmano. Meanwhile, former pro soccer player John Halls (also shot by Balsom) wraps up in some comfy dress coats, perfect for an autumn evening, and Eric Ramos and Nadav Heyman demonstrate the brighter side of Fall, with strong looks in bright hues shot against a surreal Escher-scape by Lacey. It may be hot now, but Details reminds us that the chill is just around the corner—and that there’s more than a few things worth looking forwards to. Text: Jonathan Shia

The Biz : The Week That Was

April 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle


John Galliano and Eva Green by Ellen von Unwerth

Who better to teach young designers about the ups and downs of the business than a true fashion veteran, former Dior creative director John Galliano is set to teach a Master Class at Parsons . The series, cheekily entitled ‘Show Me Emotion’ “seeks to engage its participants by provoking the power of emotion in context of fashion practice and exploration of intuitive, perceptive manners of investigational making.” Sounds like a fascinating opportunity for the students lucky enough to gain entrance. / LUCKY


Cara Delevingne in Quentin Jones (Cadence New York)’s short film for Punk Stories

In the weeks leading up to the Met Gala Vogue and punk are becoming increasingly interwined. Case in point, the magazine’s newly launched ‘Punk Stories’ film series. Enlisting a new female director each week to create a cutting-edge fashion film centered on the theme of punk the films provide a sophisticated and luxurious take on the DIY down and dirty ethos of punk. Already they’ve had Cara Delevingne rocking out in a kinetic film by Quentin Jones (Cadence New York) that capitalizes on Cara’s larger than life personality and the rock n’roll spirit of punk’s evolution. The week prior Dree Hemingway mixed punk with New Wave glam in Mary Nighy’s soulful short.


Bisutti with fellow contest winner, Jamie Lee backstage at the 2009 VS show – image by Betty Sze

Victoria’s Secret lashes back at former contest winner, Kylie Bisutti whose interviews regarding her forthcoming book have sent shockwaves through the blog-o-sphere. In an official statement the mega-brand denied Ms. Bisutti had ever been in the running for Angel status and said the following:

“Ms. Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year. The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Ms. Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009. That was the extent of Ms. Bisutti’s involvement with Victoria’s Secret. She was never a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract. And contrary to Ms. Bisutti’s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria’s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work. She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria’s Secret – including a relationship that simply did not exist.


Reed Krakoff by Robbie Fimmano

In other designer news, Reed Krakoff Exits Coach after 16 years. Krakoff will step down from his position as president and executive creative director in 2014, to focus exclusively on his eponymous luxury line. Krakoff’s utilitarian designs and style savvy helped bring Coach into the present and revitalized the brand’s aesthetic. Coach is looking for a replacement to take the reigns once Krakoff leaves, but a name has yet to be announced.  / WWD

Jet Black

November 3rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Vogue Italia knows that nothing grabs your attention better than a striking fresh face, no wonder they’ve enlisted the gorgeous Corinna Ingenleuf for a gorgeous edit by Richard Burbridge. With her sleek look and steely gaze, Corrina is the perfect choice for a hard edged story with loads of black leather. We love how effortlessly cool girls like Corrina, Freja Beha Erichsen, and Saskia de Brauw are creating an androgynous model moment. In addition to the gothic pieces, the story syled by Robbie Spencer, the story features a selection of in your face wristwatches from the likes of Cartier & Rolex.
