Keifer Sutherland on the Last EVER Issue of Men’s Vogue?

By Will Reid on November 27th, 2008

0997130.jpgUsually, I like to write these magazine posts with as much information and detail as possible. I’m no stranger to the old hour of uploading just to give you the full low-down on that Dazed & Confused issue with “Tecktonick”dancer Kevin. The US Vogue ‘Superman’ issue with Tom Welling was packed with great pictures that were up on our beloved Brandish within hours of their release!

However, sometimes a hot story is worth posting even if the only information you have is a cover image…

L’Uomo Vogue: AFRICA ISSUE – November 2008

By Will Reid on November 11th, 2008

66245_L3uomo_Vogue_122_575lo.jpgAfter taking on the lack of model diversity, Franca Sozzani (the editor extraordinaire behind the Black Issue of Italian Vogue) now wants us to sit up and pay attention to a different cause- the immense need for aid in Africa.

As part of her campaign for fashion to stand up and act, Sozzani has made the latest issue of L’Uomo Vogue the ‘AFRICA ISSUE.’ This means that every feature or person included in the issue has some sort of relation to the need of Africa. It features Nelson Mandela, Naomi Campbell, Forest Whitaker and Bernard Henri-Levy (the philosopher and co-editor of the special issue.)

New York Magazine tells us that Sozzani “not want to make an aesthetic statement about Africa…unlike a recent issue of India’s Vogue magazine…this one won’t show peasants posing with $5,000 handbags.”

See after the jump for pictures of contributors including Nelson Mandela and Michelle Obama and e-mail isabelle@shinymedia.com to tell us what you think of the issue.

Further signs that the recession is affecting the fashion industry as Condé Nast announced their plan to absorb Men’s Vogue into its parent magazine Vogue. Editor in chief Jay Fielden is the only member of the magazine to be retained in the change and will reportedly be taking his assistant with him. Hopefully the cutbacks wont be affecting Vogue Homme International.

As well as Condé Nast, Hachette Filipacchi and Time Inc. are also cutting their staff numbers as advertisers hesitate to make firm commitments. Publishers say they are having trouble getting firm, longer-term commitments from advertisers who are having to make quick and strategic decisions.

Sean Avery Gap advert.jpgWe’ve already featured one of the Gap adverts with Scott Schuman and now we’ve got our hands on the image of Vogue intern cum hockey player Sean Avery for the US retailer.

WWWD calls Avery a ‘self-confessed workhorse’ and the sports star has expressed a wish to become a fashion editor when he retires from hockey. He started his internship with Vogue this summer and guest-edited mensvogue.com.

Other fabulous faces featuring in the Gap adverts include photographer Ryan McGinley and Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman.

NHL player guest edits Men’s Vogue

By admin on June 26th, 2008

Men’s Vogue is doing an interesting experiment this week as they allow NHL player Sean Avery to guest edit their website. During his time there he’s written about his internship experience there, given us the lowdown on his favourite New York hotspots and done a couple of photoshoots.

I would have found this infinitely more interesting if I held any interest in the NHL, but it’s still intriguing to see a professional American athlete display his love for high end brands in this manner. It also had me thinking which sports star would be best suited to guest editing Brandish? The poll is after the jump.

Several splashes of colour

By admin on June 13th, 2008

cosby.jpgI’ve gone on about the splash of colour trend in drips and draps for a good while now and I’ve finally found someone who likes it even more than I do. Men’s Vogue writer Amanda Brooks features a large selection of men past and present who have worked the colourful look. It even features a pre-ugly jumper Bill Cosby looking rather suave in a yellow turtleneck.

If you can’t be bothered to click that link, then I’ve featured my favourite looks after the jump.

50 Films that influenced men’s style

By admin on June 13th, 2008

50films1.jpg
The problem with spin-off men’s style magazines is that they’re often not given the same TLC that the main version is. Men’s Vogue hasn’t got anywhere near the level of the main Vogue magazine, but with features like ‘50 films that influenced men’s style‘, it’s getting there.

Starting from 1934 to 2007, the article includes everything from Easy Rider to Gigolo to The Royal Tenebaums and has little blurbs of information on just how every film has influenced men’s style. For instance, The Royal Tenebaums is credited with kickstarting hipster’s love affair of all things bright and sporty. An example of the hold movie stars had on their audience in the 1930′s is exhibited in the blurb on It Happened One Night. Clark Gable chose not to wear an undershirt in the film millions of people followed suit, nearly bankrupting the entire undershirt industry.
