RENASCENCE Magazine is a quarterly publication produced by the Renaissance Men team. It’s an extension of the brand, showcasing a more in-depth look into the industry and providing consumers with a lengthier engagement opportunity with brand. The issues are designs to give great content with the use of high-quality and modern design aesthetics reflective of their times.
No.5: The Spring Trends Issue
In this issue, Kwen Maye shoots our cover star, Paul Bradley, who also happens to have a feature in the magazine. Photographers Kamva Goso and Larry English contribute with on-trend fashion editorial and we highlight model Uthman Bangaru who also stars in our Urban Knight editorial. Badmus da Silva takes centerstage in our Cottonmouth spread and Newton Igwele and Okechukwu Ojukwu take on Dual Identities.
No.4: The Obsession with Youth Issue
The Obsession with Youth issue takes a Botox injection into fashion’s love-affair with looking young. Is it about celebrating rejuvenation or a sinful desire to freeze time and stay young forever.
No.3: The Model Issue
In the Model Issue, public figure, Anesu Chogugudza gives us his opinion on being a model and being off-duty. We profile the beefy model, Sean McCollet and interview New York male model agency Director, Anthony Chase. We sit down with popular male model, Lesala Mampa and Anthony Holder answers our Q&A.
No.2: Designer Africa
The Designer Africa issue highlights three young talents producing quality menswear – Babatunde Oyeyemi, Ian Audifferen, and Brian Ndienze. We look at three male models making waves in the industry – Kwesi Ansah, Keagan Troskie, and Kwen Akomaye. We slip in four fashion editorials plus some opinion pieces by writers Jermaine Charles and Aviwe Phika.
No.1: African Rise
Our official first issue after testing the waters. In this issue we feature models Jimi Ogunaja, Lunga Chris and Eugon McNeil. We look at 11 skincare essentials for every man and we interview designers; Coreon Du, Mzukisi Mbane and Adebayo Oke-Lawal. We also sneak in four great fashion editorials for your style inspiration.
A teaser, an installation, a digital moment in physical time to see if the branches growing from the tree stemming from a seed will hold in this world. This issue is, hopefully, the beginning of something bigger and great for African menswear and grooming. We feature contributions from Sive Booi, Siya Baliso and Jermaine Charles. We highlight Armando Cabral footwear, Laurenceairline and Keith Henning. Our first interviews are with SA’s Bhubesii, Laduma Ngxokolo of MaXhosa and Egya Appiah. We hope you enjoy.
