Spring Forward

March 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Hercules Universal celebrates the “Endless Affair” with their latest issue, offering a clean and crisp vision of Spring/Summer 2015. Four black-and-white covers kick it off, featuring English actor Jeremy Irvine by Ben Weller, French rocker Marlon Magnée by Hedi Slimane, and models Alessio Pozzi and Austin Scoggin by, respectively, Daniel Riera and Bruno Staub. Social-media sensation Lucky Blue Smith stars in a vivid feature by Giampaolo Sgura, while Pozzi and Arran Sly look sharp in summer whites by Riera. Felix Gesnouin stars in an introspective story from Philippe Vogelenzang, and another editorial by Sgura peeks at the artistic life.

Staub’s collections feature, shot on Fire Island in gorgeous monochrome, features a passel of summer-ready Soul Artist Management faces, including Doug Pickett, Blaine Cook, Sean Harju, Brian Shimansky, Henry Watkins and Cory Bond, all of whom also appear in an accompanying video, premiering here on Models.com. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the issue below.

VEOIR 4: Body & Art Issue

March 23rd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For the fourth issue of up and coming magazine VEOIR, fashion is romanticized as a stark accompaniment to bare form. The Body & Art issue features seductively imagined images by photographers like Ryan Michael Kelly, William Lords and Léa Nielsen and includes an interview with James Franco. A sleek Alana Zimmer fronts the issue in a high gloss breast plate styled by Nick Nelson. Continuing the motif William Lords makes fashion a second skin with designer pieces painted on models Jennifer Pugh and Kristel Van Valkenhoef. Throughout the zine, the stone-faced gazes of the models and spartan styling reveals in the shadows the edgy attitude of VEOIR. Check out our exclusive preview below.

Modern Day Heroes

May 23rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Sometimes, less is more. Such is the case with DSECTION Magazine, the Portuguese menswear magazine that, next week, moves from a bimonthly to a biannual format with their supersized Spring/Summer issue. Two covers shot by Danielle Levitt spotlight some of the brightest new faces of today: Simon James, Joseph Dolce, and Gabriel Marques, dressed by the multitalented Nicola Formichetti in his first collection for Diesel.

Following on the theme of “Modern-Day Heroes,” the issue explores different strains of strength and bravery, from the fresh, vibrant energy of the cover story to the contained power of Frederico Martins’ calm editorial, with sleek, easy clothes selected by Nelly de Melo Gonçalves. Clark Bockelman, Alex Dunstan, and Matt Trethe stare down the camera in James White’s feature, with styling by Christopher Preston, while Nicolas Ripoll and Matthew Holt offer an elegant preview of Fall 2014, again from the team of Martins and de Melo Goncalves. Paolo Zerbini offers up a study of youthful aggression with Paolo Zagoreo’s edgy streetwear, while Thomas Goldblum presents a more refined take with his classic portraits with styling by Benoit Martinengo. The only downside is knowing we’ll have to wait six months to see the next issue.

Winter to Spring

March 3rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The cover of the latest issue of DSection may be a study in winter white, but the pages inside make it clear that spring is well on its way. Arthur Gosse and Baptiste Radufe, dressed by Jimi Urquiga in Thom Browne’s Versailles-inspired designs, are photographed by Jack Waterlot for the accompanying story lounging in a snowbound cabin, but the floral prints and bright sportswear found throughout the rest of the menswear magazine offer a welcome prelude to the thaw. Alexi Lubomirski shoots the iconic Daria Werbowy on a secluded patch of welcoming sand, while Nicolas Valois captures new face Daniel van der Deen looking steamy in Dries Van Noten’s rich palm tree-print shirt. Many of today’s biggest faces make appearances as well, from Anders Hayward and Marc Sebastian Faiella to Alexandre Cunha and Ton Heukels, all with that certain elegance expected from DSection.
