Four Covers of Arena Homme+ Spring Summer 2011

Here’s the article from Fashionologie.

With its new editorial team, the biannual Arena Homme Plus has become something of a brother publication to POP — they now share the same editorial director, Ashley Heath, and the magazine’s new editor in chief, Max Pearmain, used to be acting menswear editor at POP.

Heath and Pearmain’s first edition of Arena Homme Plus hits newsstands next Monday, April 11 in the UK (and Monday, April 18 for the rest of the world), boasting four different covers, one each playfully dubbed “Stephen,” “Stevie,” “Steve,” or “Steven.”

“The men’s fashion magazine market has become so staid and predictable,” Pearmain notes of his vision for the magazine. “It was actually more inspiring in many ways 15 years ago when there was just L’Uomo, Vogue Hommes, and Arena Homme Plus . . . We wanted to inject some surprise and some passion and some playfulness back into this world.”

Pearmain himself styled New Order’s Stephen Morris for the “Stephen” cover, artist Clunie Reid created scrawling artwork for the “Stevie” cover (left), David Sims photographed the “Steve” cover, and Steven Klein, of course, captured the “Steven” cover. The Klein version of the issue — or Homme+ PLUS as it has been christened — comes with 45 extra pages of more “hardcore” content. Some of it has already been posted online (NSFW) and will only be sold in selected independent retailers and online.

The move back to Arena Homme Plus is something of a coming home for Heath, who used to edit the magazine himself: “It’s been fun to return. I really built that magazine on blood, sweat, and tears back in the day, so it was great that David Sims, Steven Klein, and others from the glory days returned and contributed such strong, strange work. There’s this sense of travel, of art and design, of the way the world is changing . . . We changed the paper stocks a bit and did that ‘special sections’ thing I’m into recently. The magazine is still niche, but it will appeal to a broader cross-section of stylish men.”

Alongside contributions from Sims and Klein, the new issue also features work by Wolfgang Tillmans, Collier Schorr, and Ari Marcopoulos


Dazed & Confused 2010 Covers Recap


What i like about Dazed & Confused cover is that they always using different photographers and the results are different image style every month!!

They started the year with Courtney Love looking pretty with nude make up lensed by Yelena Yemchuk. While Viktor & Rolf unique tulle dress worn by Magdalena Frackowiak is the center of attention for its February cover by Josh Olins. Blue haired Mia Wasikowska looking unusual than her other magazine covers, she was photographed by Laurence Passera for this March cover.

Another unusual cover comes from the hands of Pierre Debusschere as he lensed The XX for April. Glen Luchford gave 2 different covers of Tilda Swinton for May. I preferred the one with big hair. Ari Marcopoulus lensed Crystal Castles for June issue.

M.I.A sporting army looking ensemble for July issue with Rankin behind the lens. Supermodel Kristen McMenamy werq her hair with the lens of Tierney Gearon for August and Dakota Fanning September cover by Mark Segal is my personal favourite! I rarely like black and white image, but this is so beautiful shot of her.

Top newcomer Kirsi Pyrhonen featured on October cover shot by Sharif Hamza (he’s the only photographer to repeat his work for cover of Dazed this year, the other cover is the 3D December cover featuring Daft Punk). Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe is not afraid to go all the way in November cover and spread of Dazed & Confused lensed by Serge LeBlon. Thumbs up for that!!
