Moral Minority

July 9th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The rebellious French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine takes on convention in their Fall/Winter 2015 issue, pushing the boundaries and rethinking the idea of what a fashion magazine can be. Based off the theme of mœurs (French for morals and manners), the issue opens with a striking cover image of founders Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin by CG Watkins, their faces covered by white cloth napkins as is the tradition while eating ortolans, small birds long eaten whole by the French in a culinary specialty now banned by the government. The push and pull between revealing and concealing is on display in a feature by Kira Bunse as well, with a series of portraits of a model dressed in suits and a headpiece that covers his entire face. Other features by Oliver Hadlee Pearch and Bruna Kazinoti have a sharp edge to them, crisp editorials that buzz with a dangerous energy. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue below.

Seeing Stars

April 21st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It may be a mere coincidence but hopefully it’s something more positive- 4 eye-catching covers with some of our favorite black models of today. A shift is indeed rising: Joan Smalls on the cover of Lucky Magazine (normally reserved for celebrities), Binx Walton fronting Vogue Espana, Aya Jones gracing Numéro and Liya Kebede returning once again for a Vogue Paris cover (and the first black model on the cover since 2010’s issue with then new face, Rose Cordero). At any rate, we feel it’s a fantastic step in the right direction. With the return of models commandeering the covers of the major fashion glossies in the past year, we really hope that these four covers are but the beginning of this trend of including beauties of all colors.

The Lady is a Vamp

March 20th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

The biannual Vamp—cheekily subtitled “a magazine about women on top”—celebrates its first birthday with the release of the new Spring 2015 issue, complete with four powerful covers, starring Versus’ new creative director Anthony Vaccarello with his muse Mica Arganaraz, along with Hilary Rhoda, Jessica Miller, and Drake Burnette with David Agbodji. Dedicated to powerful women, the magazine brings together art, fashion, and culture, with features on the painter Anh Duong and the actress and muse Rossy De Palma. Miller amps up the sex appeal while Burnette and Agbodji offer a sculptural look at the season’s sharpest collections. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the new issue below.

Oscar’s Joie de Vivre

January 23rd, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Oscar de la Renta‘s final collection for his legendary line is given a fitting tribute with the brand’s spring/summer campaign by Steve Hiett (London: D + V Management , London: D + V Management , Berlin: Shotview Photographers Management). With Daria Strokous and Sasha Luss serving as blonde bombshells on the go and Heitt capturing their every move through Miami’s toniest enclaves, the campaign crackles with energy. Natasha Royt styles the duo in coordinating pastel looks from the spring collection, bringing out their inner society girl with gingham prints and plenty of floral embroidery. The resulting ads are upbeat and energetic without ever losing the elegance that defined de la Renta’s timeless aesthetic.

Mass Appeal

December 18th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

As we prepare to turn the page on 2014, the intriguing French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is all set to take us into 2015 with a Winter/Spring issue out this week. CG Watkins’ striking cover introduces a full story shot in Cape Town with fashion by Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones out of his own archive with groundbreaking pieces from the under-appreciated cult designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The other features within offer a refreshing difference from the typical fashion glossy, from the androgynous appeal of Nicolas Coulomb and Florence Tetier’s story with styling by Georgia Pendlebury to the rich spirituality of Watkins’ feature with fashion by Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin. An exclusive portfolio of the late Malian photographer Adama Kouyaté’s classic portraits round out the artistic angle, while Brett Lloyd offers a take on the year to come with quirky looks by Lotta Volkova Adam (New York: ArtList NY, Paris: ArtList Paris). Take a look at our exclusive preview below.

Office

December 8th, 2014 |Posted by holly

Great teams create great content, so when Creative director/Fashion Editor, Simon Rasmussen (BRIDGE Artists), Bergdorf Goodman’s creative director Jesper Damsgaard Lund, and makeup artist Zenia Jaeger came together to create brand new magazine, “Office,” our interest was piqued.

You will see some familiar names in the pages of the magazine (Jason Kibbler, Dario Catellani, Julia Noni, Marcelo Krasilcic, and Asger Carlsen to name a few) but you’ll also find some not-so-recognizable faces. According to the magazine, they’ve “enlisted a couple rappers, some artists and musicians, a convicted felon, a few party people, two carpenters, a DJ, a handful of strangers we spotted on the street, and a crew of our favorite stylists, designers and photographers to share their stories and contribute new work.”

Check out our exclusive preview of the magazine below and take note that Office will be available on newsstands this week. We highly recommend picking up a copy!

Vamping It Up

September 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Since its debut Vamp Magazine has been about powerful women, the kind who command attention whether they’re in the boardroom or on the catwalk. Issue No. 2 centers around the theme of personality – big, bombastic personalities that draw people in – the idea is hammered home via the five cover stars – Malgosia Bela, Binx Walton, Lily McMenamy, Suvi Koponen and Kim Peers women admired for their ability to bring something different to the table. The editorial content follows suit with arresting new fashion stories, each one bolder than the last – take a first look below.
