As we prepare to turn the page on 2014, the intriguing French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is all set to take us into 2015 with a Winter/Spring issue out this week. CG Watkins’ striking cover introduces a full story shot in Cape Town with fashion by Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones out of his own archive with groundbreaking pieces from the under-appreciated cult designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The other features within offer a refreshing difference from the typical fashion glossy, from the androgynous appeal of Nicolas Coulomb and Florence Tetier’s story with styling by Georgia Pendlebury to the rich spirituality of Watkins’ feature with fashion by Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin. An exclusive portfolio of the late Malian photographer Adama Kouyaté’s classic portraits round out the artistic angle, while Brett Lloyd offers a take on the year to come with quirky looks by Lotta Volkova Adam (New York: ArtList NY, Paris: ArtList Paris). Take a look at our exclusive preview below.
