First Look: Hercules Magazine’s Wild World

In its new Fall/Winter issue, Spanish menswear magazine Hercules Magazine takes a look at the Wild World around us, finding powerful beauty in varied landscapes both natural and urban. Cedric Buchet and Mitchell Belk capture Ben Hill making his way between both, wrapped up in luxe outerwear in the city and nude on a dock on the lake. Bruno Staub and David Vivirido capture a portfolio of bright young stars from the worlds of film, television, music, and, yes, social media, while Thomas Giddings and Tracey Nicholson take Max Barczak and Joey Bayes to the rocky dunes. Bruce Weber captures a trio of brothers graced with a poetic air in his inimitable style, reminding us to look at the power in the everyday.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue, out now, below.

Couture City

Photographer Daniel Jackson gives a surprisingly creative take on the latest Vogue Australia cover story. Julia Nobis is an angelic sight to see in dove white couture samplings from Givenchy, Alexis Mabille, Francesco Scognamiglio, and Viktor & Rolf. Christine Centenera‘s pickings provide the perfect armor for Nobis’ ethereal, elvin-like frame to take on the urban NY jungle while beauty team Esther Langham, Romy Soleimani, and Rica Romain provide an understated, sweptback look that focuses on flesh tones and highlighted skin.

L’Officiel Hommes Italia Suits Up

The look for Fall is cleaned up and sharp in the latest issue of L’Officiel Hommes Italia, starting with a cover feature by Jan Lehner and Rose Forde starring young actor Joe Alwyn, the breakout of Ang Lee’s latest film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. Inside, suiting takes the lead, with a focus on tailoring and its contemporary reinterpretations. Amit and Emil Rebek offer a crisp look at a fresh silhouette, while Serge Leblon and Rebek offer up a study of checks on Emil Andersen. Alwyn’s cover story gives his boyish appeal a grown-up twist, and Finnlay Davis takes on lush fabrics and details in an editorial by Robbie Fimmano and Anders Solvsten Thomsen.

Nothing Added

Toni Garrn appears stripped down as a bare beauty for the cover editorial of the latest Numéro Berlin, courtesy of photographer Richard Kern–known best for his intimate, unguarded style of shooting. That sensitive touch applied here shows a different and wonderful side of the German model, who glows in the most natural way with nothing added unposed around an apartment. Kern’s images make us slightly wonder why you would photograph Garnn in any other way. Preview the editorial below.
