Playboy South Africa October 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.

Karen Lynch The 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. DeRay Mckesson Mckesson’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. Hernan Diaz Diaz grew up in Argentina and Sweden, studied in London and now lives in New York, where he is associate director of the Hispanic Institute at Columbia University.

yeha leung

Her lingerie has adorned the bodies of Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, but 26-year-old designer Yeha Leung has more in mind than VIP co-signs. “My goal isn’t to just add celebrities to a list like I’m capturing rare Pokémon,” says the Brooklyn native. “I started my business for people who are hungry for the same aesthetic.” For Leung, that aesthetic took root in an early fascination with Blond Ambition–era Madonna and Asian horror films. She launched Creepyyeha in 2011, and it swiftly morphed from a Tumblr hobby to a highprofile personal brand. These days, customers wait up to nine weeks for their orders as Leung painstakingly crafts each piece. Offering harnesses, garters, chokers and even chain mail, Creepyyeha at once captures hyperfeminine daintiness and a forceful raciness that wouldn’t…

planet earth goes to washington

Melting icebergs, megastorms and heat waves may still raise Al Gore’s hackles, but for many of us, signs of a faltering climate just add to what Norwegian climate expert Per Espen Stoknes calls “apocalypse fatigue.” In other words: Sorry, polar bears, we’re over it. With all the bad news about our planet, it may come as a surprise that there’s a possible solution to global warming, and that it involves a most common thing: dirt. Since the birth of the industrial revolution circa 1750, humankind has added about 1,000 billion tons (a.k.a. gigatons) of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. It’s called the “legacy load” of CO2. Even if we converted our global society to solar panels and Teslas tomorrow, that mass of gas would still be up there, wreaking havoc on our…

“Instagram is like a business card on steroids for visual artists,” says Emily Miller, a 27-year-old New York–based painter who regularly sells her artwork off the sprawling photo-sharing site. Having surpassed a billion monthly users earlier this year, Instagram has become a powerful tool for Miller and her ilk, allowing them to bypass the gatekeepers of the white-cube gallery world and build ever more independent — and financially viable — careers. But it’s not all prayer-hands emojis. While Instagram has democratised the art world to a substantial degree, it has also introduced new powers that be: Censorship algorithms, easily offended users and shadowy moderators all have the power to decide if certain images are too “explicit.” And it can take only one report to get a post taken down. When it…

The day ends with a call from her insufferable brother. Insufferable when he calls, carping endlessly on about a portfolio of problems that anyone not living in the culture capital of the world would be grateful to have —Quaker schools and alternate-side parking and something actually called “mansion tax” — and even worse during those stretches of absolute radio silence in which it’s obvious that he could take or leave the family altogether. He launches straight into his feud with Hunter Wagoner, the latest middle-aged white Southern writer whose Moment has proved slightly more extensive and sparkly than her brother’s own Moment, but for the first time in more than 10 years of this unvarying, soul-killing rite of auto-pietà she cuts him off. “I don’t have time for this shit, Teddy.” “What’s…
