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

PHOTOGRAPHY: “AUSTRALIA” BY MARK SEGAL

More often than not when a fashion shoot takes place within a natural environment, the photographer (or to be fair, the Art Director), doesn’t quite manage to capture that intrinsic synergy between the subject & their surroundings or show it within the final product, despite having fulfilled the creative brief & concept by producing a set of eye-catching images of this seasons finest. For me personally, that connection means everything.

Marc Segal marries Man (in this case Jarrod Scott) & Land (in this case his homeland Australia) so perfectly, that our slightly primitive & rather handsome model literally becomes one with the rugged landscape in the Australia editorial featured in the latest Vogue Hommes International, Spring/Summer 2014.

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.

COVER: RYAN GOSLING BY MARIO TESTINO, GQ GERMANY, JULY 2013

I’ll admit, I’ve never quite understood actor Ryan Gosling’s appeal, that is until I saw him bring his A+ fashion game to the Cannes Film Festival back in 2012, and more recently playing the suave, slick and sartorially sleek ladies man Jacob Palmer in the film Crazy Stupid Love.

Living up to the strap-line, the actor is the epitome of cool in a simple white shirt and pistachio sweater on the cover of GQ Germany July 2013.

The colour palette is fresh, zesty and screams summer, while the trickles of text in various fonts surprisingly do not take anything away from the striking Mario Testino lensed image and those piercing eyes.

Side Note: Yes I’ve seen the Notebook several times and still didn’t get the fuss but now I want to be him.
