First Look: Fucking Young!’s Outsider Issue

May 4th, 2016 |Posted by jonathan

In its new issue for Spring/Summer 2016, the menswear magazine Fucking Young asks what it means to be an outsider in today’s increasingly interconnected world. Cover star Olly Alexander, actor and lead singer of Years & Years, speaks about being openly gay in the entertainment industry to go along with a colorful feature art directed by Nicola Formichetti and shot by Matt Irwin. The rest of the issue covers other sorts of outsiders, some by choice (nudists) and others less so (the Amish). Designers Demna Gvasalia and Henrik Silvius discuss their singular visions for fashion, while Josh Hight captures a portfolio of models whose unconventional skin only adds to their appeal. Looking abroad, Filip y Kito take a cheeky look at North Korea, and Michiel Meewis and Michael Darlington capture Oliver Greenall, George Admiraal, and Dylan Hartigan in a moody tribute to the iconoclastic director Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Take a first look at the new issue, available for presale here, below.

Bits & Bytes Special Model Edition:

There may be no other male model search as successful as the VMan/Ford collaboration (take a look at what the past winners have been doing). Their new search has begun and the winner gets a shoot with the incredible Steven Klein, styled by Nicola Formichetti. We just might be a tad jealous. (Search ends March 1st)

Perry Ellis‘s February show needs one more hot male model and wants YOU the audience to choose him. Check out Andre Douglas, Seth Kuhlman and more of the hot 9.

Model agencies, want to see how to do Twitter the right way? Read Damien from Ford’s interview to figure out your Twitter gameplan.

Don’t piss Chanel off

The Imagist talks about the men’s show from his fascinating vantagepoint.

Donatella Versace blogs for The Moment, a rare personal peek into her world.

Top stylist Tabitha Simmons launches her new shoe line, the Cut has a preview.


Sad, sad, sad. One of the original supermodels, Karen Mulder is in the news for harassing a doctor. (Vogue UK has her first Vogue cover for them).

The man who cuts Anna’s hair is a man named Charlie Chan!

V Man has a “look at our winners, they actually work” post on their blog.. So true, so true!!

Donatella, Jet Li, helping children… we’re so into that!!

Twiggy still looks so damn amazing. No wonder she’s back as the face of Olay.

if you haven’t seen Paul Smith boogey-ing on the runway to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, see it here now. Paul rocks!

Click here to see Vogue UK’s slideshow of their favorite boys. What’s really hilarious besides their funny comments is how little they know (or care) about the men’s market. They know Gabriel Aubry and David Gandy but don’t even know top model Sean O’Pry or Philip Huang, longtime runway star.

Top icon Tony Ward is in a video!
