As far as independent menswear magazines go, Client is a market leader and this issue reminds us all why. Never afraid to place new talent alongside the world’s top male models or insist on authentic photography without compromise, avoiding unnecessary retouching that we have to endure in so many magazines published today. We must point out that Client is first and foremost a photography magazine and the genre is fashion. It’s important to remember that. As of this issue, each edition of Client Magazine and our popular Client Style Guide will be printed on the finest papers, almost twice the weight of previous issues, setting Client aside from many others. We want to create publications that you will want to keep and continue to bridge the classic with contemporary.
As we unveiled earlier, our cover star is British model Oliver Cheshire at Select, photographed in New York by Arnaldo Anaya Lucca at Defacto and styled by Marcus Teo, dressing Oliver in exclusive total-look Polo Ralph Lauren SS/14. The issue features 17 editorials from as many photographers, including Anna Victoria Best, Andree Martins, Demian Dupuis, Aitor Santome, Amar David, Charl Marais, Emmanuel Giraud, Ian Cole, Jeremy Kost, Laurent Humbert, Matthew Stansfield, Rokas Darulis, Ricardo Gomes, Samuel Bradley, Sasha Hitchcock, Sebastian Troncoso & Winter Vandenbrink. The digital edition is available for immediate download and you can order the print edition which ships from 25th June, 2014 (links below).
