Essential Homme Celebrates a Half Decade

September 22nd, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Most five-year-olds would be content with little more than an ice-cream cake and a handful of balloons, but not Essential Homme. The menswear magazine celebrates half a decade with five sharp covers for their August/September issue, out now, featuring actors Michael Shannon, Boyd Holbrook, and Shiloh Fernandez, filmmaker Xavier Dolan, and singer Future, all of them men whose flourishing careers point to promising futures. Each cover subject sits for an enlightening shoot and profile within, as do Hermès’ Véronique Nichanian and Steven Kolb, head of the CFDA, who reflects on the inaugural New York Fashion Week Men’s just past. Roberto Sipos embodies the trends of the season, while the military look gets a special focus courtesy of a passel of powerful faces like Serge Rigvava, Ryan Keating, and Ton Heukels. Take a closer look at the new issue below.

Essentially Exciting

August 14th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Fresh off an eyecatching redesign, American menswear journal Essential Homme gets a head start on Fall with its new August/September issue, out this week. A grown-up Daniel Radcliffe stares out from the front cover, and the issue is packed with enticing styles for the cold days to come, kicked off by a collections story featuring iconic brands from Louis Vuitton and Hermès to Dior Homme and Lanvin. Designer interviews with Gucci’s Frida Giannini, Gieves & Hawkes’ Jason Basmajian, and rising star Patrik Ervell add some heft, interspersed with a variety of visions for Fall 2014. Mark Cox takes on smooth turtlenecks in an Eighties-inspired story, while the three finalists from the magazine’s casting search with Wilhelmina are dressed up in denim. Philip Witts and Rasmus Hååg—themselves finalists from last year’s VMAN/Ford Models Model Search—are sleek in an all-HUGO story, and Alexander Ferrario and Misa Patinszki take on some of the season’s more daring looks in an autumnal feature. New faces Nick Shaw and McClain Driver, shine in 2 other graphic editorials. Covering everything from sleek suiting to chunky Nineties creepers, the latest Essential Homme proves to be the ultimate resource for the season ahead.
