The 25th edition of FANTASTIC MAN stars the magnificent artist and director STEVE McQUEEN on the cover, photographed in his adopted-hometown of Amsterdam while speaking his mind in between film projects. McQUEEN is joined within by literary sensation ÉDOUARD LOUIS, affable restaurateur JEREMY KING, enterprising actor WOODY HARRELSON, French comedic superstar GAD ELMALEH and photographer COLLIER SCHORR in a series of unprecedented self-portraiture. Elsewhere in the issue, five men get straight to the point in a new feature titled KINDLY PITCHING, the happy consequences of balding are investigated and the latest fashions travel to Tenerife, Newcastle upon Tyne, the metaphorical campsite and to TOM BIANCHI’s Palm Springs abode. It’s a milestone!
This issue of Fantastic Man, number 24, celebrates VETEMENTS’ designer DEMNA GVASALIA on its cover, photographed by INEZ & VINOODH. Featured inside: stunning critic AA GILL, singer DEV HYNES of BLOOD ORANGE fame, theatrical engine IVO VAN HOVE, sky-high BLAISE BELLVILLE who opened club phenomenon BOILER ROOM, and the artist JORDAN WOLFSON whose work is just sensational. Two new editorial sections are launched: one called TIME SPENT, reporting from across the universe, and another named QUESTIONNAIRE, which ties in with a new feature of the same name on this website. As always, the issue includes many fashion-photographic essays mapping great style.
The 23rd issue of FANTASTIC MAN begins with a glimpse into the homes of 7 London-based models and includes interviews with DAVID MILLS, NICK RHODES and CARLOS RIVERA. Moving on, we set off with CHARLES AVERY to the Isle of Mull, to Turkey to visit OMAR SOULEYMAN, to London with GREGOR MUIR, to Paris with SHAYNE OLIVER of HOOD BY AIR and to the skies with real-life rocket man DAVID MAYMAN. Gracing the cover is PEDRO ALMODÓVAR, photographed by ALASDAIR McLELLAN, in anticipation of his 20th feature film release. Elsewhere in the issue, a collaboration with the house of REPOSSI is revealed, strong man ŽYDRŪNAS SAVICKAS and his friends flex à la mode, and a variety of fashions accompany models, actors and architects alike from the club to the lounge.
