editorialesque » parker gregory for hercules

represented by click models, parker gregory appears handsomely for the pages of hercules magazine. the spanish based men’s style publication booked parker to be photographed through the lens giampaolo sgura while styled by miguel arnau for their spring/summer issue. though the spread also features male model, diego fragoso, i felt that parker deserved a bit more of indvidualized shine this go ’round. with a near perfect physique & an all-american look, parker has been seen everywhere from campaigns with nautica & armani to editorial bookings for esquire GQ & GQ. though flying a bit more under the radar, parker graced the cover of hercules for their spring cover series & is definitely one male model i strive to present on a larger digital platform. i love the nautical theme of the spread & love the casual feel of this style direction.

editorialesque » leebo freeman + simon van meervenne for hercules

through the lens of  bruno staub, leebo freeman of of ADAM models is seen paired with simon van meervenne of VNY for the pages of hercules magazine. as a spanish based men’s style publication, im always super impressed by the editorial content, style direction & art direction of each spread i see. styled by laura alcalde with grooming by tomohiro ohashi & tiina roivainen. focused on soft shades of spring, the spread also showcases prada denim pieces as well as sweaters with texture & some print. while grooming takes center stage, i love that modeling agencies are encouraging models to take on greater forms of individuality- it’s clear that leebo’s bleach blonde is quite the show stopper. the images feel like joseph bleu.

editorialesque » mariacarla boscono + roberto bolle for hercules

shot by paola kudacki, mariacarla boscono of women model management appears with italian ballet dance, roberto bolle. appearing for the FW10 issue of hercules magazine. boscono appears seductively in knee high patent leather boots & leopard print while showcasing much more of her cheeky side, literally. i love that the images are delicately masculine; roberto bolle is a handsome prop within the editorial & compliments mariacarla beautifully. a beautifully poetic set of images.

mariacarla boscono for hercules

represented by women model management, mariacarla boscono appears for the FW10 issue of hercules in technicolor alongside world renowned ballet dancer, roberto bollé. shot by paola kudacki. while i would’ve loved something much more representative of fall, i am generally pleased with the work put forth by boscono, as i am here. i will say that the pink backdrop does remind me a bit of david lachapelle. im waiting for more extended looks at the issue will become available; perhaps the feature editorial will shed some light on the direction of the cover & the choice to adapt the concept to a much more camp direction. you might recognize both bollé & boscono from the FW09 salvatore ferragamo ad campaign.

editorialesque » supermodels for hercules

what yo’ name iz? fernanda tavares, alessandra ambrosio, aline weber, bruna tenorio,
jeisa chiminazzo, caroline ribeiro, izabel goulard

through the lens of paola kudacki, a number of female models were shot on a studio background with minimal styling for the SS10 issue of hercules. while nothing in the realm of editorial is ever quite what it seems; i imagine that a great deal of organization went into the execution of this spread. the casting was exceptionally on point & each female was given the opportunity to shine independently without straying from the aesthetic of the overall vision. its clean, its classic, the chicks are pretty- its everything that i love & hercules really killed it. i love the use of yellow text as well. fashion editing by keegan singh.

editorialesque » gracie, romulo + fred for hercules

shot by giampaolo sgura, gracie caravalho of the marilyn agency appears alongside fred laatsch of major in this tropical spread. lookin something like a hawaiian barbie, previously i had stated that gracie looked like a ‘black hawaiian tropic barbie’ – i do want to go on record to correct my misinformation- gracie is actually of brazilian decent. i never stop researching & confirming facts- look beyond the surface, because we’re more than just white or black nowadays. interestingly enough, i was hella dissapointed by the lack of gracie in the full editorial. that said, im glad to see her being exposed more & in such beautiful light. you cannot tell me that she aint the reason you even cared about the cover. in addition to fred, romulo pires of wilhelmina also appears in the editorial & has been seen in ads for cartier, uniqlo, clarins for men & alongside sessilee lopez for calvin klein’s fragrance CKone. i wish the spread was more extensive, as the location & theme are incredibly attractive.
