COVER: BASTIAAN VAN GAALEN BY MICHIEL MEEWIS, FUCKING YOUNG!, SPRING/SUMMER 2014

Posted on March 31, 2014

While tearing my hair out trying to sugarcoat the awful Pharrell cover of the latest GQ US (I couldn’t justify the dire styling, strange wink or the dirty low-tops), I came across this colourful (and far more cohesive) cover of Fucking Young! Magazine’s latest issue.

Styled by Ginger Clark & clearly living up to the title, Bastiaan Van Gaalen sports glazed 24 hour party eyes, perfectly positioned bed hair & aboriginal style make-up along with a matching Kenzo SS14 coat & Hentsch Man top against a painted backdrop for the magazine’s “Museum” issue. The prominent cobalt blue cover lensed & art directed by Micheiel Meewis,  naturally allows the eye-catching orange masthead (think “Interview” meets “The Hunger” typefaces in a bar), to visually pop, largely thanks to a little colour theory 101.

Visually it’s attractive, fits the magazine’s theme & is even on trend, what more could you ask for?
