About a month ago, I posted on an accessories editorial that had used graphics and colour to present a Manga-style perspective of this season’s it-items. Well now, that same issue of one of menswear’s most fashion-forward magazines has been released and Ashton Kutcher is on its cover. Fake arms, wires, polished warriors- everything gleams with the shine of modernity. Ashton poses with a synthetic arm and his accompanying editorial, entitled ‘I’m Not Real,’ is fun and fast as well as overly-futuristic.
See after the jump for an issue review and more pictures.
I’ve noticed in the recent months that male celebrities tend to be more open to playing characters in their editorials. We don’t have to endure any fake smiles or all-American classics but instead have fashion stories that are really sharp and on-trend. Within this issue, we have Ashton’s editorial shot by Mario Testino, ‘New York Giants’ featuring New York’s latest and greatest male models, ‘Corporate Climbers’ with Sean Opry, Travis Davenport and others shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby and my personal favourite ‘Suit It Up For Spring’ with Luke Worrall and many others styled by Alastair McKimm and shot by Will Davidson. If my original post weren’t enough, there is now no excuse not to take a look at this issue.
