First Look: The Greatest Fall 2015

October 5th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

For the new Fall/Winter 2015 issue, menswear magazine The Greatest takes as its theme heroes of all sorts, starting from the supremely graceful and athletic star ballet dancer Roberto Bolle, who graces the cover shot by Francesco Brigida and styled by Matteo Greco. A powerhouse lineup of models stars in the main fashion story within by Alessandro Dal Buoni and Greco, from longtime favorites like Ben Allen, Laurie Harding, and Tim Schuhmacher to newer faces Piero Mendez, Matt Doran, Charlie James, and Max Barczak in a youthful take on the season’s idiosyncratic designs. Robbie McKinnon finds himself in expressive sportswear on the beach in a feature by Paolo Zerbini and Greco, while breakout faces George Koh and Lucas Satherley are found in suiting lounging in a sparse field photographed by Clare Shilland and styled by Hanna Kelifa. Mark Kean and Jérôme André contribute a thoughtful vision of fresh youth, and the same quiet introspection can be seen in an accompanying short film, directed by Luca De Santis and starring Florian DesBiendras and Carolina Gonzales. Interviews with Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein, Paul Smith, and Bolle’s fellow ballet legend Marie-Agnès Gillot round out the issue, a reminder that there is never a shortage of talents to look up to. Take an exclusive first look at the issue, out today, below.

New Homme

June 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

In the latest issue of upstart American menswear magazine Essential Homme, editor-in-chief Terry Lu offers up a note of explanation: “The essentials of great fashion are a combination of remaining constant while continuing to change.” To that end, the June/July issue comes with a fresh redesign, from a sharp, sleek new logo to an innovative editorial structure mixing news items with fashion features. Janis Ancens helps kick off the new vision, starring in the summer-ready cover story, shot by Sebastian Sabal-Bruce on a glowing seashore. American Ballet Theater principal Roberto Bollé is captured by AP Kim in his role as the latest brand ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana, and Bruce Pask discusses his plans as the men’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman. The other rich editorials offer a celebration of Louis Vuitton’s all-American Spring collection and the season’s most modern sportswear and sexiest swimsuits. The issue closes with a look ahead at Pre-Fall, with desirable designs pointing the way forward.
