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.
