Working off the theme of ‘Awakening,’ menswear magazine The Greatest celebrates ten issues and opens our eyes to the season ahead in its new Fall 2016 edition. Three covers, starring Connor Newall, Lemmie van den Berg, and Tim Dibble, offer competing visions of the new season, with van den Berg appearing in a feature on eclectic layering by Thomas Goldblum and Benoit Martinengo. Scottish star Newell explores the countryside in rustic designs in a story photographed by Benjamin Vnuk (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Jed Root) and styled by Gaelle Bon (AGENCE SAINT GERMAIN), while Emanuele Fontanesi and Benoit Bethume capture Max Fieschi in colorful, graphic sportswear. Alessandro Dal Buoni and Matteo Greco offer up a Louis Vuitton special, featuring the designer’s standout sleek lines and marble prints, while Virginia Arcardo offers a backstage look at Dior Homme’s striking red-and-black Fall collection. The issue’s accompanying short film, by Pedro Podesta, finds Frenchman Felix Gesnouin walking the line between Beat poet and Nouvelle Vague heartbreaker dressed in Dries Van Noten by Ivona Yvon.
