Dazed Autumn/Winter 2018
Dazed (formerly Dazed & Confused) has evolved from a London street scene magazine into an internationally-recognised title that continues to identify and create leading-edge cultural trends through its challenging and often controversial editorial, design and visual identity. With its world-exclusive interviews, groundbreaking fashion editorial, peerless photography and award-winning themed issues in music, art, fashion and film Dazed defines the cutting edge of style and fashion.
In this issue
M.I.A. and Dev Hynes; two era-defining artists whose music is championed for its openness, its desire to experiment, and for its willingness to speak the truth — even to those who refuse to listen. For the new issue, out today, we hone in on the kind of spirit that turns pop icons into pioneers.
Photographed by Wolfgang Tillmans for the first of five autumn/winter covers, Dev Hynes talks to Durga Chew-Bose about his raw and intimate fourth album as Blood Orange, Negro Swan. Lensed luminously by Gareth McConnell, M.I.A.’s equally revealing autobiographical film MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A. is the centrepiece of her conversation with Simran Hans — read it here. Across two covers, Johnny Dufort and Robbie Spencer stage a fashion riot, and to finish, Angelo Pennetta captures the iconic rising model Mica Argañaraz.
Elsewhere in the issue, we spotlight at the underground dancers switching up New York’s nightlife scene, Hereditary star Milly Shapiro shares a few serial killer theories, Goldie reflects on 25 years of partying and pushing music forward, Jaden Smith talks about his sustainable clothing line, we meet the burgeoning stars of Belfast creativity, and photographer Émilie Régnier discusses the story behind her intimate portraits in the Ivory Coast’s hair salons.
