Spring Clean

May 12th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Spring may have just barely started, but Spanish menswear magazine Varón Magazine is already looking ahead to the rest of the year, with a Summer/Autumn issue celebrating rebirth and renewal, out now. Coverboy Julius Gerhardt makes a striking comeback, fresh off walking for Prada exclusively in January after coming out of a life-threatening coma. Piczo opens the issue with a celebration of British designers, from upstarts like Craig Green and J.W. Anderson to old standbys Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, styled by Hugo Lavín on Simon Fitskie.

Editorials by Lonny Spence and Yann Faucher lead into Autumn 2015 previews by Nacho Pinedo and Mark Kean, while interviews with Marni’s Consuelo Castiglione, Zegna’s Stefano Pilati, and Pablo Coppola of Bally add some heft. Rising designer Lou Dalton expounds on the merits of apprenticeships, and Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, insists on the value of higher education—even in an age of rising tuition fees and diminishing job prospects. Varón has always celebrated the unconventional—previous cover stars include flamenco dancer Yiyo and parfumier Ben Gorham—and this tenth issue proves no different, with a profile on Jon-Allan Butterworth, the paracyclist who lost an arm in a rocket attack in Iraq and went on to win three silver medals at the Paralympic Games in London. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

First Look: Re-Edition Premier Issue

March 9th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Past and present meet on the two covers of the début issue of Re­-Edition, the brand ­new quarterly out of Antwerp and London from editor Eddie Eldridge, with the choice of either a rare archival image from 1997 of the iconic Stella Tennant by Mark Borthwick or Harley Weir’s dreamy image of an androgynous young man dolled up in a dress by Vetements, the upstart design collective that was just named a finalist in this year’s LVMH Prize competition. Both art and fashion get equal billing in the issue, with excerpts from photographer Alec Soth’s new book Songbook and artist Jim Goldberg’s famous collection Raised by Wolves alongside a range of provocative fashion features. The late Dash Snow is represented by archival works, and the legendary Vivienne Westwood gets her due in a profound retrospective of her lengthy career, making the old feel new again.

Take a look at our exclusive preview below.

Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.


Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.



There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour – as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.



You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.



Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.



Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.

Queen Cara

i-D Magazine

Fashion’s current queen of all media grabs her scepter and poses up a storm in the pages of i-D. With an Elizabethan meets avant-garde theme (very Vivienne Westwood) and a wild array of new fashion, the cover and accompanying story are an off-kilter take on tradition. With Cara set to take Hollywood by storm (the Brit beauty has two films slated for 2014) it is great to see images that put her flair for drama to good use.

Teenage Dream

October 14th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Venetia Scott‘s atmospheric photographs always serve to provide an appealing alternative to the typical fashion stories and her latest images for Self Service are no exception. Providing an esoteric twist on traditional prom portraits makes for a surprising story. Styled by Poppy Kain and featuring a baby-faced cast including Nastya Kusakina, Sarah Engelland and Frances Coombe, the feature merges the vintage vibe of the imagery with the very latest runway looks. Focusing on playful pieces from Lanvin, Moschino and Vivienne Westwood, Kain creates an uncommonly chic wardrobe fit for both a youthful audience and those well beyond their school years.
