The Greatest Love of All

“Love is the sea you don’t know how to sail.” So begins the introduction to the seventh issue of Italian menswear biannual The Greatest, which celebrates love with a wistful tone. Baptiste Radufe displays a quiet introspection in the cover story shot by Paolo Zerbini (Atomo Management) with styling by Matteo Greco, a mood that continues through Francesco Brigida (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN)’s suiting story with Andrey Smidl and Johan Sandberg (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)’s study of forlorn youth.

Luca Stascheit, Ian Sharp, Rutger Schoone, and Jack Chambers are joined by newer faces Martin Conte and Erik van Gils in a series of quiet portraits, while Gustaaf Wassink gets a surreal twist in the spring’s graphic pieces. The collected interviews offer a refreshing change of pace from the usual, with jazz trumpeter Paolo Fresu and young French actor Pierre Deladonchamps featured alongside Diesel’s new creative director Nicola Formichetti. As with each outing of The Greatest, the Love Issue comes with a special companion video, this one a love story starring rising new face Mihai Bran. Take an exclusive first look below.
