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!”
