Hypebeast #33

Hypebeast is the leading destination for men's contemporary fashion and streetwear.

Hypebeast Magazine - Issue #33 (The System Issue)

Hypebeast's latest publication is called The Systems Issue, as they explore not just why people create what they create but how they do it — the processes and approaches that have led to success, growth, influence, and community.

On top of the work itself, this means spotlighting artists’ networks, collaborators, and lines of communication to audiences, as well as how those factors affect their practices.

For their cover star Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, this means going independent in both fashion and music with the relaunch of YZY and the release of VULTURES 1 (and soon VULTURES 2 and 3) through his own platforms.

In an exclusive interview, the perennial iconoclast explains how building his own systems has led to him being “the happiest I’ve ever been in my life,” on top of feeling the most authentic connection with his fans since The College Dropout.
