MEN IN GRAY: Man About Town, a Paris-based biannual men’s title edited by Philip Utz, saved oodles on retouching and color printing with its spring/summer issue, which hits newsstands next week. It’s devoted to Hedi Slimane’s Los Angeles and is filled with his signature black-and-white photography, from the lined face of Brian Wilson on the cover to his more familiar cast of skinny youths, including Agyness Deyn in full tomboy mode. Slimane also rounded up a cast of cultural movers and shakers across the indie and legend spectrums, from music mavens Wavves and Beck to the writer Gore Vidal and artist John Baldessari. The 268-page issue features cheeky interviews with designers Rick Owens and Giorgio Armani and many fashion shoots with scant amounts of clothing.
