Starring musician and style icon Theophilus London—also the first rapper to grace the magazine’s cover—the October/November 2014 issue of Essential Homme treks from fall to winter with the season’s most fundamental wardrobe staples, swelteringly-hot New York Fashion Week happenings, and appetizing holiday options for Him, Her, and the Home.



As always, the book begins with the ten MOST WANTED items of the season (pg. 21), which range from ultra-bouncy adidas by Raf Simons Bunny boots to textured goat leather Maison Martin Margiela wallets, and continues onto CITY LIMITS (pg. 36), an urban exploration of standout outerwear pieces from the likes of Acne Studios, Prada, Dolce&Gabanna, and more. After NEW ARRIVALS (pg. 50, including Alexander Wang x H&M, Calvin Klein Collection’s capsule collection and pop-up space for Dover Street Market, Coach’s first-ever comprehensive line of men’s footwear, etc), the issue sees the first of its two newest verticals, SCENE (pg. 56), a rundown of NYFW’s swankiest shindigs from Jeremy Scott, Emporio Armani, and, of course, Essential Homme.

Selected features include:

  • STYLE (pg. 58): Camel Commotion / Once the go-to outfit for polo players between matches in the ’20s, camel hair comes back this season as versatile as ever, as demonstrated by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture, Louis Vuitton, and Salvatore Ferragamo.

  • MEAN AND GREEN (pg. 72): Using Tim Coppens, Gucci, and Raf Simons/Sterling Ruby as examples, muted military greens and industrial-inspired hues fuel the artillery for this season’s most commanding color.
  • BURIED TREASURE (pg. 86): The quest for the perfect timepiece this season results in findings from Hermès, Tissot, and Hamilton as refined as they are rare.
  • GUTS AND GLAMOUR (pg. 92): Jimmy Choo’s Creative Director Sandra Choi jolts the footwear brand fearlessly further into menswear.
  • LONG LIVE DENIM (pg. 96): rag&bone’s two newest collections build on the basics.
  • A HOUSE IN THE HILLS (pg. 100): Atop Beverly Hills’ acclaimed Sheats Goldstein Residence and under the affecting California sun, fall’s medley of formalwear from Roberto Cavalli, Burberry Prorsum, and Michael Kors finds drama despite the cinematic calmness.

A NEU MAN (pg. 114), the issue’s cover story, reveals a spiritual progression for the Trinidadian-born rapper Theophilus London. From Paris Fashion Week with Cara Delevingne to nine months in the desert of Palm Springs, London’s sophomore album, Vibes!, executively produced by Kanye West, is his international, if not intangible, album yet. Closing the October/November 2014 edition, another new column, SHARP SPACES (pg. 144) welcomes Valentino’s new U.S. flagship: a post-modern palazzo in New York City.

The October/November 2014 issue of Essential Homme magazine is available on national and international newsstands and online as of today.
