First Look: METAL

April 22nd, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For its 10 year anniversary METAL Magazine shows no signs of showing age in its present-day appeal. The independent publication’s 35th issue celebrates the birthday by highlighting the young and the rising. Its double covers feature two painterly models of the moment Cierra Skye and Varya Shutova, photographed simply by Maurizio Bavutti. Inside, the editorials operate Metal’s signature alternative fashion frequency with a medley of slick visuals: Markus Pritzi quietly captures rosy-cheeked youth, Wai Lin Tse gets inspired by Aniek Klapwijk’s rare features and Raffaele Cariou theatrically plays with light and shadow. Take an exclusive look inside the issue before it hits stands.

The Greatest’s Youthquake

March 4th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its Spring 2016 issue, menswear biannual The Greatest Magazine explores fashion’s endless fascination with youth, in all its possibility and potential for change. Erik van Gils leads off with the cover in a story by Alessandro Dal Buoni and Matteo Greco that moves with the season’s easy feeling in crisp black and white, and also stars Sven de Vries, Niels Trispel, Dominik Hahn, and Guerrino Santulliana, among others. Massimo Pamparana and Greco capture Mats Van Snippenberg‘s boyish appeal, while Sam Harwood displays his athletic energy in an editorial by Lowe H Seger and Christopher Preston. Thomas Goldblum and Benoit Martinengo take on the season’s fresh high-waisted look, and the new oversized silhouette finds its shape in a story from Francesco Brigida (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN) and Jérôme André (Visual Artist UK ). An accompanying moody, introspective film by Luca De Santis finds Gucci campaign star Hugo Goldhoorn dressed by Greco in the brand’s gentle Spring designs.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue and video, out now, below.

Two of a Kind

January 19th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

For its latest issue for Spring/Summer 2016, the artsy Parisian menswear magazine turns to two of today’s most striking faces, Jackson Hale and Sol Goss, for a cover pairing photographed by Jackie Nickerson that celebrates individuality and creativity, a couple of the publication’s touchstones. Within, Kim Jones dresses the two models in vintage pieces celebrating the punk collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, while James Giles and Niklas Bildstein Zaar capture an otherworldly landscape of sea, stone and lava. Photographer Kira Bunse (Shotview Photographers Management) partners with founders Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin to celebrate the iconic, anarchic films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, while CG Watkins and Rich Aybar riff on real estate and the collapse of the American dream in “Management.” Oliver Hadlee Pearch (Camilla Lowther Management) and Benjamin Kirchhoff ( D + V Management) riff on a military vibe, and Josh Hight and Julian Ganio, demonstrating the ability to see things differently that is one of MASSES’s key strengths, find surprising variety in the blandest of colors in “Beige est beige”.

Take an exclusive first look at the issue—available on Thursday exclusively at Dover Street Market, London, and Trading Museum Comme des Garçons, The Broken Arm, and Colette, Paris, and worldwide a week later—below:

Moral Minority

July 9th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

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.
