Playboy South Africa September 2018

Playboy has unveiled the latest creative evolution of the brand with its re-focused principles that are core to our philosophy and also includes more provocative pictorials. Last year, we removed explicit nudity, but from here on out, it is freedom of choice and personal expression that our fans will experience once again within the pages of the magazine. Playboy remains committed to its award-winning mix of long-form journalism, interviews and fiction and has recently brought back some of its familiar franchises, such as Playboy’s Party Jokes, Playboy Cartoons, World of Playboy, and the debut of the Heritage section.

DeRay MckessonMckesson’s decision to quit his $110,000-a-year job as a school administrator and join the Ferguson protests made headlines in 2015. He has been a household name ever since. “This world can be better,” says the magnetic Black Lives Matter organizer. He talks race, activism and America in Making the Hard Case for Hope.Karen LynchThe talented collage artist says that “resuscitating and transforming long-forgotten pieces of the past into colorful, surreal, retro-futuristic landscapes” is a central theme of her work. Lynch’s faux-idyllic quad scene, complete with darkly gathering storm clouds, accompanies The Campus Consent Crisis.Steve PalopoliJournalist Palopoli has the distinction of being the first to deem The Big Lebowski a cult phenomenon. While reporting Queens of Scream for Heritage, he was especially impressed with one Playmate’s offscreen cultural impact: “Diane…

SHOTS FIREDHow about requiring universal background checks regardless of how or where guns are purchased, setting the minimum age for purchasing a gun at 21 and banning major assault weapons that are needed only by the military? None of these commonsense no-brainers would in any way hurt the National Rifle Association, nor any other supporters of gun rights — including the women in Vermont featured in She Shoots (July/August). The NRA’s claims that current laws (what there are of them) are fine have been tragically proven wrong over and over again. With the way the NRA stubbornly continues to behave, its motto might as well be “Second Amendment at all costs — no matter how young.”Who knew that more than 55 years ago Bob Dylan could easily have been referring…

world of playboy

Cottontail CrownPlayboy Club London VIP hostess Emily Cassie has been repping the Rabbit ever since she began toting a Playboy purse at the age of 12. Back in February, we made the brand ambassadorship official by crowning her Bunny of the Year, and the Croydon-bred beauty has fully embraced her new role. In July, we commemorated her first trip across the pond with a sexy old-Hollywoodinspired shoot in Los Angeles, the stunning results of which appear at left and on Playboy.com. But for Emily, the recognition that comes with being a Bunny extends beyond glitz and glamour to pride in a community that celebrates individualism and camaraderie in equal measure. “So many iconic people have worn the Bunny suit,” she says. “To be one of them is really powerful.” Cheers…

the craft revolution just got stronger

“I drink whiskey with my friends, vodka with people I don’t know and gin with people I’m doing business with,” says Walton Goggins as he settles into one of the Mulholland Room’s vintage oversize couches. You probably know Goggins from Justified, The Hateful Eight, Vice Principals or Ant-Man and the Wasp, but the actor is also co-owner of Mulholland Distilling, a downtown Los Angeles–based booze brand that makes all three spirits. Friends, strangers and businessmen: Goggins has you covered.The Mulholland Room, packed with shabbychic furniture and locally produced art, serves as the office and private bar for the distilling concern, which is the brainchild of Goggins’s longtime friend Matthew Alper.“What is the spirit of L.A.? It’s taking the best from everywhere and putting it together.”After more than 20 years as…

When Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona sold for $17.8 million and became the world’s most expensive watch, it was an exclamation point on the recent trend of exploding vintage-watch prices. Nostalgia-starved hipsters, Instagram watch selfies (wristies?) and the ever-rising fortunes of the one percent all play a part, but other modern developments such as crowdfunding and microbrand retail culture are eagerly filling the vacuum — and making classic watches accessible to the rest of us.“Microbrands are booming,” says Robert-Jan Broer, founder of the online watch connoisseur magazine Fratello Watches. “There’s not a day that I don’t get some Kickstarter e-mail for a new watch project.” (A search for watches on the crowdfunding site recently returned more than 1,300 projects in the design section.)According to Broer, these new microbrands are for “people…
