François HALARD PHOTOGRAPHER “Aura Seekers” “I was delighted to discover a district of Los Angeles that I did not know and the fantastic and original Studio KO project for Richard Christiansen. It was a wonderful moment spent all together photographing this extraordinary property.” Huang JIAQI PHOTOGRAPHER “Jackson Wang is Taking Over the World” “I like working with musicians like Jackson because they know exactly what they want. I used Polaroid film for this, because it allows me to feel more of a connection with the subject. Everything is immediate.” Justin POLERA WRITER “World Wide Wunderkind” “Samuel Fasse has emerged as a virtuoso of his generation. Importantly rejecting the idea of the single individual auteur, his hybrid practice fuses contemporary art and fashion, and is completely collaborative.” Ka rla WELCH STYLIST “Jared Leto’s Worst Kept Secrets” “I wanted to make Jared into…

jackson wang is taking over the world

Jackson Wang isn’t used to staying still. But like everyone and everything else in the world, the events of this year have forced him to take a pause. Since joining the Korean pop group Got7 in 2014, the 26-year-old rapper and singer’s pace has only redoubled as his solo career climbed the charts, first in his native China, and now around the globe. “The quarantine was crazy in ways both good and bad,” says Wang, talking from Shanghai, which he returned to from Hong Kong in May of this year. “I’ve been [going] non-stop for five, six years, and this is the first time that I had no choice but to rest.” Mainland China requires a two-week stay-at-home period for all arrivals, even international superstars. “It really got me to…

we are all fragile souls

Singer, musician, writer, visual artist, and director. This is how Yoann Lemoine defines himself. Considering the extraordinary breadth of his creative output, it is easy to understand the 37-year-old’s reluctance to narrow down his self-image. Lemoine began his career as a filmmaker, collaborating with Sofia Coppola and Luc Besson and later directing music videos for megastars like Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, and Harry Styles. In 2011 Lemoine added another twist to his career: He entered the recording studio under the moniker Woodkid. His soft, reserved voice unfolds over almost tribal rhythms, transporting the listener into a melancholic state while still maintaining a glimmer of hope. The fashion world also fell in love with him: Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director of Louis Vuitton, asked him to create a video campaign and…

irama now

Born in Carrara, Italy, raised in Monza, and now based in Milan, Filippo Maria Fanti—better known as Irama—loves Aerosmith. The classic rock band blasts from the stereo upon his request, and just as Steven Tyler wails “I don’t want to miss a thing,” Irama slips out a heartfelt lip sync. The young musician, whose moniker means “rhythm” in Malay, is riding a high, and it’s not just from this performance. Earlier this summer he was declared the victor on Amici Speciali, a TV special that raised funds for Italy’s COVID-19 pandemic. The show was a spinoff of the original talent series Amici di Maria De Filippi, which first catapulted the artist to success in 2018. Since then he has topped the Italian Albums chart with several multi-platinum singles. Through it…

the artof standing out

The idea of men’s fashion is at once a very modern phenomenon and yet also a totally outdated concept. Fashion is genderless, and binary sexuality is a social construct that we are finally leaving behind. Men have in fact always been into fashion—following trends and experimenting with the shapes and colors of their clothes—but for almost a century, they have had to hide their interests behind a protective armor and the repressive mask of a dark uniform. Ultimately, the Feminist movement allowed for the evolution of the male identity, and opened a door for men to comfortably express themselves through fashion. As we have seen on the recent runways all over the world, the separation between women’s and men’s fashion—between their respective runway shows and markets—is coming to an end. But…
