Eight fresh, but familiar, covers arrive in the form of METAL Magazine 37th issue. Just having celebrated ten years in independent magazine publishing, the Spring/Summer 2017 edition of the transatlantic biannual not-so-subtly references some of the most memorable images in fashion history like Alexander McQueen for “The Face” or Leonardo DiCaprio clutching oversized lips. Here, those and more, are revisited in a modern lens by up-and-coming image makers to make an unmissable statement on image consumption in the new world. In addition, topics on Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele and Vetements highlight how far western society has come in accepting the diverse personality types and far from norm looks. Interviews with photographer Oliviero Toscani of Benetton ad fame, former The Face creative directors, Lee Swillingham & Stuart Spalding, artist Gavin Turk. and designer Glenn Martens from Y/Project round up a stellar roll out focused on reinvention in all its forms .
