VMAN Issue 44 – LIBERATED MASCULINITY
Given the state of the world, it is with a great sense of pride that we present VMAN44, graced by Dutch model and creative Parker Van Noord. Shot by Inez and Vinoodh and wearing denim and layered Cartier jewelry, Van Noord represents what we believe to be the future of modeling, embodying sensitivity and vulnerability not typically seen in male models.
V Magazine was launched in September 1999 as the younger sibling publication to the limited-edition quarterly Visionaire. If Visionaire is a couture book, V is ready-to-wear. V is large-format and visually-driven, international in scope and collaborative in spirit. V is a magazine about fashion with a capital F and all the things that go with it: art, music, film, architecture…you name it. Before V was put into print, we thought of it this way: Imagine a wall of forty-four televisions, each tuned to a different station. Today you would need a wall of 250 televisions, but it's still a good way to think of the insane and unpredictable mix of people, places, and things that V celebrates in its pages. V is a place where uptown meets downtown, celebrities mingle with total unknowns, high art converses with underground culture. Chic, wacky, fun, fabulous…in a letter: V.
