Hats On, Hats Off

“Mother, philanthropist, scene-maker, and not least, supermodel” prefaces W Magazine‘s aptly titled “A Woman of Many Hats” Steven Meisel-shot Natalia Vodianova cover editorial. In fact, the entire June/July issue is driven by Russia’s “Supernova” whose accomplished career is as impressive and entire-issue-worthy as they come. Styled by the recently named editor-in-chief of British Vogue Edward Enninful , hats take a symbolic center-stage as a sly nod to her role-juggling outside of fashion as the founder of the Naked Heart Foundation and mother of five in the Avedon-esque images by another master, Meisel himself. Preview the editorial below.

Hero Launches a Summer Zine

Summer is always a season that sets itself apart, one with its own mentality, when days are longer and nights are warmer and everything feels a little more relaxed—even if we don’t get three months off from school anymore. To celebrate the spirit of summer, British menswear magazine HERO Magazine is introducing a new zine filled with enthusiasm and excitement, kicking off with the exclusive news of cover star Nick Jonas’s latest single, a major scoop for a print publication in the days of constant online churn.

The oversized, image-focused edition—Jonas’s feature by Daniel King and Gro Curtis is the sole written piece—is packed with personal projects, from a selection of meaningful fabrics by Dries Van Noten to a candid street scene from Ari Marcopoulos. King also documents a football game between Florida and Georgia, while Chad Pitman kicks off a series of “Artist Nudes,” set to rotate through collaborators every issue. In a limited edition of a thousand and bundled together with four posters and a new issue of cult zine BOYO by Patrick Waugh, the HERO Summer Zine celebrates print and all its possibilities, promising to keep the energy level high through the hot days ahead.

Fucking Young Turns Up the Heat

As fashion continues its quest to redefine gender boundaries, menswear magazine Fucking Young celebrates its tenth issue with a focus on sex. Starting with two sensual covers starring Diego Barrueco photographed by Michiel Meewis, the new edition finds a mix between carnal desire and conceptual drive. In a candid editor’s letter, Adriano Batista speaks honestly about being bullied as a child for being gay, tying together fashion’s celebration of individuality and freedom with continuing oppression of sexual rights around the world. Subversive artists Slava Mogutin and Gorka Postigo are featured, along with designers Riccardo Tisci, who has played with tropes of masculinity at Givenchy, and newcomers Glenn Martens of Y/Project and Palomo Spain’s Alejandro Gomez Palomo, whose collections take the idea of androgyny to another level. On the more physical side, Axl Jansen explores bondage while Kito Muñoz toys with the singular aesthetic of erotic movies.

Miu Miu’s Girls

Miu Miu Pre-Fall 2017 brings fresh faces to the campaign rollout this season featuring long time fav model/actress Jaime King and youthful new beauties Iesha Hodges, Lily Nova, and Samantha Archibald. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the casting finds bliss in a stylized London hotel room: The visual narrative strikes a chord resonating memories of British personalities of times long past. Vintage prints establish the theme suggesting period nostalgia: Both pant and A-line silhouettes paired with collegiate-style Varsity coats alongside floral-printed silk fabrics create the penultimate picture of what modern luxury looks like today. House founder Miuccia Prada continues to display her penchant for fun and intellect in the upcoming Pre-Fall season.
