‘Beautifully Made’ in Rake Magazine
Here is an editorial entitled “Beautifully Made”, shot by photographer Derrick Santini in Tuscany, for Rake Magazine. The magazine’s bi-line is “The Modern Voice of Classic Men’s Elegance,” sounds good to me! They have a few articles archived on the website. Here are a few that swing lads might be interested in:
Puttin’ on the Ritz: An Introduction to Formal Wear
Miles Ahead: The Style of Miles Davis
Otherwise, enjoy this sexy, well-tailored re-imagining of the mafia in southern Italy…
Hermes Fall 2010: Top Picks
My favorites from the Hermes Fall 2010 ready-to-wear show. Plenty of lady fops and dandies, with leather replacing tweeds in a mildly fetish twist. Like British super-heroines in some post-apocalyptic London… very Avengers. These women clearly need to be driving this car. Animal print umbrellas, pocket watches, leather gloves, bowler hats and netting veils, what’s not to like?
Raquel Zimmermann & Freja Beha in W Magazine
I like this fun “Art & Commerce” editorial in W Magazine, Oct 2009. It was photographed by Inez & Vinoodh, styled by Alex White, and the two models are Raquel Zimmermann and Freja Beha. Love the white tuxedo they put Freja in.
