Issue 26 Winter 2012 —

Anthony Vaccarello's last show in Paris generated the kind of excitement fashion craves every six months. With an all-star cast including the likes of Karlie Kloss, Anja Rubik, Aline Weber and Joan Smalls, the Belgian designer sent out a captivating line-up of glamazons oozing strength, power and confidence. Vaccarello loves the female form, celebrating its beauty and proportions. Women are drawn to his clothes almost instinctively. In fact, they seem to appeal to their inner goddess, dying to come out in the open. What makes his collections so alluring is the balance they create between structure and eroticism, combining rigorous cuts with subtle draping. They're sexy,yes, but never vulgar.

Our Take —

If the title conjures up images of podgy middle-aged leather-clad, death thrash musicians flicking their tongues at the camera, think again. Despite the title, this Spanish magazine is unlikely to give page space to ACDC clones. Well, not unless it was all done in a terribly creative and ironic way…

Arriving on the scene in 2006, this Barcelona-based title with an international team has rapidly captured attention with its particular position. Under Yolanda Muelas’ direction, Metal is a magazine that mixes luxury and the quintessential, giving equal time to the more erudite and conceptual throes of fashion, film or music alongside the crypto-documentary naturalism of the street.

Lessons learned from the nineties’ emphasis on showing fashion as a transient and matter-of-fact thing occurring in gritty real surroundings have been retained. But, in Metal, these ideas are teased out further and complemented with daringly theatrical and OTT presentations, whether of fashion, celebrity or hip street culture.
