There are few things, it seems, that Milan Vukmirovic can’t do. Cofounder of Paris’s famed Colette, a renowned photographer and stylist, as well as the men’s designer for Ports 1961, he is also the editor-in-chief and founder of Fashion For Men, the hefty biannual launched in 2011 to offer a luxurious take on menswear. This week, he offers a departure from his usual format with his first summer issue, with 150 pages devoted entirely to Chad White, who buzzed his hair back to his memorable earlier look for the first time in years for the project. “I think Chad is one of the sexiest top models, and I always loved him with a shaved head,” Vukmirovic explains.
The entire issue is free of advertising and text, allowing Vukmirovic, who photographed and styled every page with his fashion director Scarlett Viquel, the freedom to create an independent project without constraints. The seven fashion stories capture different facets of White’s personality, bringing to light all the qualities that have made him a major star. “Our sole focus was to create incredibly sexy and beautiful images,” says Vukmirovic. “The issue is easy, hot, and fun—just like summer should be.”
