Dazed’s Future Shock

June 4th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Dazed & Confused has always been on the cutting edge and their latest issue is no exception. The headline ‘Future Shock’ on the cover sums up the summer issue’s focus on all things new, exciting and relevant within the worlds of fashion, music and art. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot music’s it-girl, FKA twigs for an 18 page portfolio, while the accompanying interview delves into the rising star’s pop-culture influence and upcoming album. Conversations with Boots (producer of Beyonce’s smash visual album), Ai Weiwei, Nan Goldin, Momo Okabe and a final interview of the late great Louise Wilson of Central Saint Martins provide an in-depth look at all that is essential right now. On the fashion front, the five senses are explored via 50 pages of editorial content centered around the latest collections. Jamie Morgan and Robbie Spencer explore touch with Leona Binx Walton with a studio shoot focused on the tactile. Taste is tackled by Julia Hetta (LUNDLUND) and Hannes Hetta with an atmospheric story starring Mijo Mihaljcic. Sound comes to life courtesy of Gregory Harris (Management + Artists) and Tony Irvine (Management + Artists), with Amanda Wellsh playing rocker. Sight is all about Ondria Hardin in bold color combinations, Drew Jarrett’s images styled by Emma Wyman pop off the page. While smell is all about a woody field of flowers with Marte Mei van Haaster luxuriating in the grass in looks by Katie Shillingford shot by Bloomers + Schumm.

The new issue of Dazed hits newsstands on June 5th, but take an exclusive first look at the editorials below and head on over to Dazed Digital for even more.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.
