COVER: DARIA WERBOWY BY MIKAEL JANSSON, THE LAST MAGAZINE, SPRING/SUMMER 2014

For The Last Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2014 cover, Mikael Jansson captured the striking Daria Werbowy.

The high contrast black & white portrait sees the supermodel in a slicked androgynous look that perfectly compliments the intense leather story inside, which features much coveted jackets from the likes of Saint Laurent, Junya Watanabe & T by Alexander Wang.

Check out the “Don’t mess with Daria” themed editorial below.

THE POOR HOMME ERA

“Wandering the streets of London, seeking a Maison for his Margiela, ranting about random things to ratchet people, full-time forager of designer deals.”

Ever since I ditched the world of freelancing and became a full time Graphic Designer for two british menswear brands, my blog took a backseat… Well, that & my last web-host practically destroyed the blog when it was migrated. Months of hard work building up a following, increased hits & revenue went straight down the drain overnight & unfortunately was never recovered.

9 months later however, my baby as been reborn & rebranded with a new name, new URL & new logo – The Poor Homme (Dot Com). I’m ready to go back to blogging about fashion & design for fun, whilst also having an outlet again for my “ratchet, hood-rat sandwiched within a Ladurée macaron” opinions on advertising campaigns, look books & magazine covers, along with my unique ability to forage the web & bargain bins for those designer deals. All I ask is that you be patient while I familiarise myself with WordPress & basic grammar again.

Thank You!

The Poor Homme

COVER: KATI NESCHER BY PAOLO ROVERSI, DAZED & CONFUSED, JULY 2013

Enveloped in the wild flames of a printed Givenchy ensemble, an ominous Kati Nescher fronts the July 2013 cover of Dazed & Confused’s “Trash & Burn” themed issue.

Lensed by Paolo Roversi and styled brilliantly by Robbie Spencer, her slicked wet hair and ash tinged moonlit face give off an almost eerie necromantic vibe, which of course I adore, along with the drama of Riccardo Tisci’s busy chiffon shirt and twill skirt cocooned dramatically by the unruly torn paper stole.

The only thing that I would probably lose (as I have mentioned several times recently when it comes to the magazine), is that rather distracting cello-taped strap line but other than that, I do love me some dark and damning Dazed & Confused!

COVER: SEAN O’PRY BY PABLO ARROYO, ELLE MAN MEXICO, JUNE 2013

Who knew a staple white tee & denim shirt could look so damn good!

One of my favourite models of the moment, Mr Sean O’Pry stars on the unconventional, minimal but eye-catching cover of Elle Man Mexico, June 2013.

Photographed by Pablo Arroyo, it’s refreshing to see something on the new-stand more “blue” than “blue steel”. The lighting, the off-beat pose and Sean’s complexion against the pale wood of the chair and washed denim shirt are altogether a visually stimulating combination. It’s natural, classic but forward in it’s composition and attitude. For some reason it immediately reminded me of this L’Officiel Hommes Cover by Johan Sandberg, but maybe it’s the chair/stool/unconventional/neutral/blue aspect.
