First Look: Hercules ❤ New York

September 26th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

The heavyweight Spanish menswear magazine Hercules Universal is no stranger to the long-distance haul, having devoted previous issues to far-flung locales like China and South Africa. The Fall 2013 issue finds itself a bit closer to home, focusing on the vibrant energy of the world’s capital, New York City. Several of the most talented photographers and stylists working today join forces in the eclectic stories, which showcase the beautiful Fall collections against the backdrop of the ever-changing city. Polish photographer Maciek Kobielski‘s stark black-and-white cover story features the Dane Mathias Lauridsen styled by Swede Zara Zachrisson and Darcy Backlar (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists), all of whom, like many in these pages—and countless immigrants before them— now call New York home. David Agbodji takes a star turn with an uptown elegance in Bruno Staub (De Facto)’s gorgeous feature styled by Miguel Arnau. Sean O’Pry brings his timeless cool to the city streets in Txema Yeste‘s contemplative story with styling by Francesco Sourigues.

The rest of the roster is equally strong, with newer faces like Dominik Bauer, Tidiou M’Baye, O’Shea Robertson and Louis Steyaert taking their places alongside seasoned pros like Clement Chabernaud, Marcel Castenmiller, Miles McMillan—and a few veterans like RJ Rogenski and Aiden Shaw—in features lensed by Giampaolo Sgura, Carlotta Manaigo, Ben Weller, Axel Lindahl, and Zachary Hadley. The rich stories offer small peeks into the city’s bustling diversity, proof that even a lifelong New Yorker can always find something new and exciting just around the corner.

First Look : TUSH

September 17th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

When it comes to Tush, we always expect the unexpected. The latest issue features Aline Weber on its cover and completely delivers page after page of fun, unpredictable, avant-garde content. We never really know what’s going to show up in Tush, (see, “Le Kitkat Club” below) and that’s what makes us eagerly anticipate each issue of the quarterly publication.

Haute Tension

July 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Creativity is on display in Numero China with Txema Yeste‘s striking cover story starring Guinevere Van Seenus. The arresting images show Yeste at his best and convey a message that is at once alluring and off-kilter. Each picture makes you pay close attention to the details; from Tim Lim‘s unorthodox styling, Tamara Mcnaughton‘s abstract hair creations, to painterly makeup by Tyron Machhausen. In this editorial Guinevere proves yet again why she’s the go to model for photographers looking to push their images into the realm of art and her dramatic poses combined with the contributions of each team member to create a story with visual punch.

Erotica

July 12th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Txema Yeste creates an erotically charged fashion fantasy with Jac Jagaciak in the pages of Numero. Styled in revealing jet black looks by Franck Benhamou and sporting short, gamine hair Jac takes on a whole new persona. The strong, at times androgynous woman she portrays in this story  is a striking change from the way she’s usually photographed and she pulls the look off with aplomb, conveying the right mix of sensuality and confidence in all her images. Yeste’s saturated color palette and the stark assortment of ensembles make for a thrilling tribute to the season’s obsession with powerdressing.

See the full story in the fashion database.

Past Meets Present: The Mod Moment

January 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

By its very nature, fashion is in a constant state of change, but the industry has a way of rehashing the past every few seasons with collections that draw inspiration from key moments in fashion’s history.  Nostalgia was the predominant fashion mode of the aughts, and it saw  designers revisiting everything from 1920s flapper fixtures, to ’80s powerdressing and (gasp) ’90s grunge redux. We may have just entered into 2013, but when it comes to manufacturing clothing that looks awfully similar to styles that could have been worn generations earlier, designers show no signs of stopping.

Case in point, S/S 13’s mod moment, which saw a wealth of graphic prints invading the runway. Checks, stripes, and houndstooth patterns  made appearances on the runways of labels like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana, offering a pleasant alternative to spring’s tried-and-true florals and providing a bit of deja vu. Granted, these design elements are timeless, but fans of ’60s style will recognize the cuts and patterns that make up these new designs as the hallmarks of mod innovators. Take a look at  the work of Pierre Cardin, Mary Quant, André Courrèges, and Ossie Clark,  and you can’t help but see where Marc Jacobs and co. took their lead from.

With the very same designs getting major play in the pages of this month’s magazines, editors have been showcasing these looks in a variety of ways. Most choose to play up the retro appeal inherent in these collections by creating stories reminiscent of days past: what says ’60s more than an angular Vidal Sasson bob or an oversized bouffant? Others focus in on the graphic element, shooting the pieces against white backdrops and playing up the contrast.
