Dazed’s New Agenda

August 3rd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Dazed & Confused debuts its latest covers and marks the first issue following the print redesign after the recent internal change of posts. The gradation had editor Isabella Burley becoming editor in chief and Robbie Spencer becoming creative director, after serving as its fashion director. The latest issue under their helm is aptly entitled “The New Agenda” and features two distinct bubble gum hued covers with of-the-moment models Molly Bair and Lineisy Montero, with two more covers to be revealed making four in total. Styled by Robbie himself and photographed by the in-demand Roe Ethridge, the images are modern and now, with Dazed’s trademark levity and commentary. It’s the pair’s first fresh take on the longstanding narrative of the magazine and while the covers are distinct from previous Dazed covers they feel familial. Models.com asked Isabella and Robbie for some more insight into the the issue’s new direction:

Dazed has always played an authorial role in defining the cultural zeitgeist: So already being Dazed veterans, plus your new roles, what serves as your editorial compass for the “New Agenda”?

Robbie Spencer 

“We wanted to allow the magazine to be become more fashion focused and to visually lead our cultural agenda, enabling us to focus on things that we feel having meaning and resonate with the Dazed audience, such as the feature about the shifting aesthetics in casting headed up by cover stars Molly Bair and Lineisy Montero. It has a new clarity to it. It still is, and always will have, the Dazed point of view on contextualizing fashion and retain its level of integrity focusing on music art and film but incorporating a more visually led and experimental point of view.

We really felt this next era of Dazed is all about championing the community around Dazed – new and established talents – giving them space and freedom and celebrating what print means now. It’s about stripping away archaic ideals about what print used to mean, and how people absorbed print pre digital-consumption, allowing a new sense of freedom and ability to experiment more with the print format. It is more focused on long format and in depth reads and visually led projects, to create a more collectable read, something that does not attempt to compete with the immediacy of digital content, it is something much more curated and considered, making every page precious, less disposable and instant, which is very exciting for us, we all feel a newly energized enthusiasm towards print and are excited about the future, and proud to be spear heading this new era of Dazed print.”

Isabella Burley

“We really wanted to build on the authoritative editorial voice that has continually shaped the pages of Dazed. I’ve always loved the fact that Dazed has championed such a diverse and unexpected range of subjects – from Iris Apfel to Madonna and FKA twigs. For me, things are always more interesting when they don’t quite make sense. You get that feeling when you see the full cover set for this New Agenda issue. When you have such a strong fashion point of view, you can bring even the most unlikely subjects together. That’s when things get interesting! The cultural trailblazers featured in the pages of this first issue might come from disparate worlds, but they share one important thing in common: the ability to set new agendas. We like to think it makes a strange kind of sense.

In regards to Molly and Lineisy, they are at the forefront of an important and electrifying new agenda in fashion – it’s so important to us that we celebrate that. They are igniting new conversations and in turn shaping our cultural landscape. What’s more they are two of the most relatable models we’ve had in years. I’m obsessed with Molly’s instagram!”

Surrealist State

December 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As the most talked about model of the moment, Kendall Jenner has been everywhere this year – including on the cover of Dazed & Confused, where she displayed an appealingly avant garde side in Ben Toms‘ eclectic cover shots styled by Robbie Spencer. The concept goes one step further with the release of Toms’ trippy accompanying film which sees the raven haired beauty posing in a variety of haute fashion looks accented by glossy makeup by Yadim (Art Partner) and Shon‘s larger than life hair styles. In keeping with Dazed’s tradition of outside the box content the film has a weird and wonderful style reminiscent of vintage video.

Demure might not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of Nicki Minaj, but on the new covers of Dazed & Confused the stunning singer / rapper / actress and newly signed One Management model is ladylike in Chanel and Miu Miu. Jeff Bark (Management + Artists) and Robbie Spencer offer a refined new perspective on an artist who continues to evolve & surprise. Though she sports a slinky gold swimsuit in one shot, the images are more elegant than outlandish – think 40s era pinup rather than aughts pop star. The launch of the Dazed covers wraps up a busy NYFW for Minaj, who sat front row at several shows and even found the time to teach the models at Alexander Wang how to dance.

Inside the issue models are given the spotlight via a luxurious sportswear feature by Ben Toms styled by Mattias Karlsson. Capturing the casual yet exclusive vibe of the moment the story features Helena Severin lounging in a series of looks that could be ripped from the runways or taken straight out of the closet of a chic athlete. Karlsson’s combinations are on point, with puffy bubble jackets and printed swimwear looking haute when paired with sky high heels.

Pure Sibyl

August 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

90s fashion nostalgists will remember Sibyl Buck as the crimson haired host of House of Style and favorite of designers with a taste of individuality. In the early 90s Buck could be found on runways for Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and Jean Paul Gaultier, but these days she spends her days as a yoga instructor in Southern California. Dazed & Confused likes to keep readers on their toes when it comes to casting, so bringing Sibyl back for a special story is right up the magazine’s alley. Sean and Seng (Management + Artists) shoot and Tony Irvine (Management + Artists) style these candid black and white shots with capture Sibyl at her loveliest and most natural.

The Outsiders

April 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion relies on outcasts, originals and those with a voracious need for what’s next – Dazed & Confused‘s latest issue salutes those visionary spirits. A Givenchy clad Mariacarla Boscono graces the first cover in an arresting image styled by Panos Yiapanis. Sporting multiple piercings and a wealth of sequins paired with simple tartans in Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner)’s cover shot, Mariacarla serves as the perfect representation of fashion fearlessness. The eternally cool Jamie Bochert sports archival Ann Demeulemeester styled by Katy England on her cover for an apt depiction of the nonchalant edginess Demeulemeester’s label embodies. Celebrated Belgian actors Matthias Schoenaerts and Veerle Baetens feature on two limited edition covers also shot by Vanderperre and styled by Robbie Spencer. The famous duo serve as the start of an epic 50 page fashion story dedicated to the rise of the Belgian underground and its cultural impact.
