Mark Ronson and family make like the Tenenbaums for Harper’s Bazaar

By admin on August 11th, 2008

royal tenenbaums family mark ronson samantha harpers bazaar.jpgAlong with sisters Samantha and Charlotte, Mark Ronson took part in a photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar which saw them dress up as the various characters from Wes Anderson’s Royal Tenenbaums.

Mark dressed as the tracksuited Chas, Samantha took the part of suicidal Margot and Charlotte was tennis genius Richie. It’s a great idea ,I’m just disappointed they didn’t set up a shot of Charlotte as Richie in his orange tent pitched up in the Tenenbaum’s front room. More images after the jump.

A Vintage Find: My Retro Sunnies from Rokit

By Will Reid on July 29th, 2008

vintage.jpgI’m currently down in London, lapping up the (dubious) sunshine and attempting to dress in a way befitting of the cramped, and quite frankly torturous, morning tube journey. Turns out they’re not too pleased about being next to someone wearing a blazer with Margiela-esque shoulderpads. Basically, the heat is ridiculous and so yesterday I wondered into Convent Garden and bought some vintage sunglasses at Rokit.

VMAN has just released a preview of their next issue (VMAN 11) and by the looks of this preview editorial, ‘Suit Yourself,’ it is going to be incredible. Reflecting V Magazine’s ‘The Women’ editorial, which took rich photography and a classic country manor to project an image of high-society living, this editorial tells a nostalgic story of traditional tailoring with almost grainy photography used to stunning effects.

The photographic wizard at hand is none other than David Sherry and the story is styled by Jay Massacret. VMAN introduces the editorial with “this year’s fall suits combine elegant fine tailoring, clean lines, and a whiff of smoky nostalgia.” A perfect introduction to a perfect editorial.

See after the jump for the entire editorial with product listings.

Mario Testino Lets Slip – VMAN Cover to Chase Crawford

By Will Reid on July 8th, 2008

chase-crawford.jpgIn a 3-week diary for The Independent, Mario Testino has revealed all on life as one of fashion’s big players. But catching our attention is the news that Mario was in New York on the 18th of June to shoot Gossip Girl‘s Chase Crawford for VMAN’s next issue.

As a forward and delightfully stylish mag for in-the-know sartorialists, VMAN is always one to watch and Brandish has previously reported on its great use of graphics and imagery in different editorials.

Testino reports that he shot “a young actor called Chase Crawford – he’s, like, the heartthrob of the moment. It’s much more unusual for me to photograph guys. I find women are more exciting because you can play with the fashion. With men, there are more restrictions.”

Dazed & Confused: Kevin May 2008

By Will Reid on April 11th, 2008

dazed.JPGWhat do you get when you combine a fashion director, a fairly underground-style publication, techno dancers and new fashion? No, not a waft of nostalgia (at least I should hope not) and not a drug-fuelled roller-disco but the latest Dazed & Confused cover.

This is big not only because Dazed has decided to give a male model its cover but also because this male model is an unknown. In fact according to the notorious fashion grapevine, Kevin is not a model at all but a dancer caught up in “Tecktonick” (a dance supposedly all the rage in France!)

Read on for the full editorial and more on the issue.
