First Look: L’Officiel Hommes Italia

September 20th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

L’Officiel Hommes Italia just recently came out this week, and has the always provocative Willem Dafoe on its autumn/winter cover, looking unquestionably dapper in Hermès. The theme of the biannual publication this season is oltre se stressi, or “beyond oneself”. Inside the magazine, the pages are filled with breathtaking men’s fashion featuring some of our favorites—Vincent LaCrocq, Eddie Klint, Jester White, and new face Pawel Binczak, to name a few. See the official preview of L’Officiel Hommes Italia below.

Who Is Dapper Dan?

April 29th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Centered on the idea of fashion as a source of inspiration rather than consumerism, Dapper Dan Magazine focuses on content that stimulates. Created by editors Vassilis Karidis and Nicholas Georghiou and creative director, Ismini Adami the magazine boats a unique aesthetic sensibility that values artistry as well as elegance. Presented entirely in black and white and featuring an assortment of fashion notables, the Greek bi-annual is sure to strike a cord with men who are style conscious, but don’t believe in following trends.

The lineup of designers is selective and impeccable: Damir Doma, Rei Kawakubo, Rick Owens, all talents that innovate within the field. The corresponding fashion stories and interviews are similarly inventive; with appealing twists on the menswear formula used by most publications. A full feature on the incredible one of a kind costumes of artist Christopher Kline, a conversational interview with Rick Owens and a unique accessories piece that pairs signet rings with jazz musicians; all things you’ll find within the pages of this thoughtfully edited glossy.

Bits & Bytes: Brazilian Bombshells

April 6th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Just in time as the sizzling spring/summer season arrives in NY is Hercules’ spread of 8 fabulous Brazilian beauties wearing well, not much of anything. Shot by Paola Kudacki and cast by Natalie Joos, see the sneak peek  here.

It’s a Zac Posen moment with not only the launch of his Target collaboration, but his first venture into real estate.

Model News:

Some might have called the 00′s the decade of the Brazilian model invasion but the non Brazilians seem to be popular right now for their campaigns.

We agree with Fashionista about setting some rules in New York (like Paris has) for models under the age of 18.

MDC’s top 10 newcomer Carla Gebhart gets her Ponyryder interview.

For anyone born before 1980, Niki Taylor will always be one of the original supermodels. Here, Production shows she is just as beautiful as ever.

We know male models are always keeping themselves busy since it’s just not as hectic for them as it is for the girls. Here’s 4 that are not only super successful (Vincent LaCrocq, Boyd Holbrook, Jacques Naude and Jamie Strachan), they are creating their own little artists community/gallery called BAG.

We adore this story in the NY Times about Karen Elson and her new album.

dkling
TFS does it again, picking out fascinating faces amongst all the thousands of new ones. We love Dan Kling who has an elfin yet ethereal face perfect for Jil Sander, Raf Simons and Prada.

Miscellaneous:

Long before the Sartorialist, there was Bill Cunningham. I remember seeing him first in the early 90′s outside at shows and thinking who IS this guy? At 81 years old, Bill’s the ORIGINAL street style photographer and is still working his NY Times beat to this day. There’s a documentary recently out on him (where they spent 8 years chasing him to get his cooperation… “Why me? There’s no subject here”). Some of these recent street style photographers could take some lessons in humbleness and hard work from this true old school gentlemen. (Check out his video work where his enthusiasm is so infectious).

Prada takes over the world! Well at least our alphabet. Here’s the Pradalphabet created by M&M.

One of our favorite designers, Rad Hourani, writes a NY Times piece on black, his favorite color.

If you haven’t read Cathy Horyn‘s detailed story on Alexander McQueen‘s final hours, read it here now.

One of our favorite agents with a oh so wicked sense of English humor (and amazing stories to go with it), Richard Habberley gets his moment in the spotlight with an interview by Love magazine.

The Women/Supreme girls are gorgeous for the V Covers by Paul Rowland but are they influenced by one of the scariest trends to come out of Norway?

Bits and Bytes: Multi Cover Mania

August 21st, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Kate Moss by Craig McDean for Another Magazine. (for full story on the covers and Another Magazine’s Decade in Style, click here).

Joining in the multi cover party that V Magazine started with 4 Fall covers and the special edition V Magazine 19 cover bonanza by Paul Rowland, is Another Magazine‘s beauteous quartet of Natalie Portman, Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moss and Katie Holmes. Love Magazine also enters the fray with 2 covers, one of Coco Sumner (Sting’s daughter) and the other of young musician Alex Hartley. It looks like it’s never been a better time for readers with such a plethora of choices.

There’s always the next Kate Moss, but is this girl actually the one?

If you’ve ever met French model Vincent LaCrocq, you’ll know why he was picked for Alexander Wang‘s men’s lookbook. Completely swoonworthy.

When we want more black models in editorials, this is NOT what we were thinking of… Our own story on R’el and Melodie by Greg Kadel for Numero is also generating quite a discussion.

Annie Leibovitz, strange and sad story.

What is the future of fashion, modeling and the Internet? The Imagist ponders

September 10th’s Fashion’s Night Out in NYC promises to be big.. Mark your calendars now to meet supermodels, designers and photographers like Steven Klein and Annie Leibovitz. Click here for the official website.

How funny… the making of the Gucci campaign is preferred to the actual campaign.

Top model Sean O’Pry has been awarded the keys to his hometown city. Here’s a pic of him with his mayor.

13 year old style blogger Tavi is on the new POP cover…. and you are not.

Jessica White blogs; she talks about the ups and downs of her life. Besides the excitement of shooting for Sports Illustrated and Maybelline, she is frank about losing her money and the devastation of being sexually abused, this looks like a must read.

Speaking of all the calls for less Photoshopping… here’s Glamour Magazine‘s model with a belly and she looks beautiful!

Models go to the movies..Irina Lazareanu has landed the lead in the new Spike Lee movie! Agyness Deyn is also set to appear in a Kevin Sampson movie.

Kate Moss vs Scarlett Johansson, are we seeing double??
