It's definitely about money, Mullet... really disappointing move on their end. Another Man and Robert Pattinson is such a strange, far-fetched pairing and not in a good/amusing way either. He seems more suited for Rolling Stone or Nylon Guys, tbh. I haven't seen much of his work so I have no opinion on his talents as an actor, but as a model, especially a model on the cover of Another Man, he falls incredibly flat. There is nothing inspired or moving about it, it's just a poor guy who is over-exposed to the pt. of no return... you can see the confusion and annoyance in Robert's face, even.

There are much more interesting, prolific actors out there who could have used the publicity. Robert certainly doesn't need any more of it...

Hedi's other editorial is f**ing incredible. Scans coming up ahead.
By the way: Man, does that Pattinson guy look bland or what...?

i saw those photos on his fashion diary and was wondering where they were going.. they're breathtaking. slimane always brings some sort of emotion from his models in his photographs but the ones with pattinson fall so flat..

^yeah, I was hoping Hedi would do something different with Pattinson other than the "handsome James Dean-esque" pictures that others already did. Maybe the outtakes would be more challenging...

I really love the mood of the editorial Hedi Slimane shot. The cover and its editorial are striking as well.

Could you briefly describe the editorials for us?

I actually like this magazine a lot because of the same reason you mention. Although I would not call it boring. Not sexy? well, I can't be sure -since I'm straight (or whatever it is the appropriate word nowadays)- if it is or if it isn't, but I'm almost certain that there are some images that might appear sexy to some. Maybe not in the straight-forward, all-out, all-the-way sexy...

There's this thing in men fashion magazines that, unfortunately for me, tend to focus A LOT in very sexy imagery. There have been several times when, after watching lots of men fashion magazines, I have found myself wondering if what I had just seen was a fashion magazine or a cultural variety magazine with a strong fondness for erotic imagery. I've seen a lot of men fashion magazines right here that adapt to that description.

I know that in women fashion magazines there's also a lot of sexiness, but there is almost always (unless the world was colored Purple ) an emphasis on styling and other artistic manifestations that come together in what we all have come to know as an editorial.
What I'm trying to say is that i know (and concur with) is that fashion is not only clothing, it involves a lot more: photography, styling, art direction, modeling talent,creativity (i'm falling short here...) and inevitably (thank God!) eroticism. The question is: to what extent should one of the components prevail over the others until it loses its reference to fashion itself?

Now for the boring part. It's been made clear to me (through a long learning process from the valuable opinions of everyone here) that an ed is considered boring when:
1)It privileges the clothing/styling component over the otherwise essential "fantasy" component (Note: I repeat, I'm not saying fantasy is a secondary or inessential component)
2)The setting of the ed is more related to a "real-world" circumstance.
Maybe I'm wrong about this. Only questions, no statements.

AnotherMan is a magazine that I think has attained a real balance between this two components and that's the reason why I adore it.

Maybe I'm a dull person and have bad taste and whatever... but I thank that of the myriad of publications that leave me wanting more (or less if you prefer) AnotherMan satisfies me almost to a full extent.

Sorry for the long rant, but it's something that's been on my mind for a while. Hope to get responses since this subject really interests me.
