The new issue of 160grams is out now, and it's so good I just have to talk about it!
For our 9th issue, we chose to bare all and celebrate the brilliant personalities and bright ideas behind the fashion industry. Apart from the classic magazine subjects (a cultural agenda including new books and exhibitions about Cecil Beaton, Diaghilev, Mario Testino and Billy Wilder among others), the magazine features a complete trend report on the new ladylike style.
Shot by the amazing Niko Menu (who has worked on Givenchy campaigns and Dazed fashion spreads) and styled by my lovely friend Sophie Clauzel, the spread turns the ladylike style upside down with wild, saucy accessories and jewellery.
We also were able to shoot Incubus's frontman Brandon Boyd in Los Angeles. Photographer Ben Cope did a Mapplethorpe-like work, and Brandon told us about his new projects, career plans and his shrewd views on fashion.
Love Magazine's contributing stylist Jeanie Annan-Lewin collaborated with us from London, illustrating a complete report on contemporary British menswear. The new gentleman wears Jaiden RVA James, Christopher Shannon and Prada.
For our Fall Fashion story, we joined forces with the incredible Pierre Dal Corso and Jonathan Segade, shooting some of the strongest looks of the season, mixing established designers with up and comers.
René Gloor and I met up with Erik Halley, one of the most promising young talents of the industry. He has designed haute couture jewellery and headpieces for everyone, from Alexander McQueen to Swarovski, from Givenchy and Chanel to Thierry Mugler.René also styled our rock & roll menswear beauty shot.
Besides all this, the issue features an article on contemporary Japanese fashion, a view on the history of iconic jewellery house Tiffany and the best make-up ranges and colours of the winter.
This issue is 160's biggest and most complete thus far, but stay tuned for our upcoming work...You'll love Fashion Exposed!
