    I'm not sure how Dazed can be part of the indie conversation with covers like this, they really should shutter the magazine and pump all the effort into the online portal (which serves more of a purpose, actually.)

    Very underwhelmed by Tillmans here. Nothing appeals to me at all. I can take better pictures on an Android, and with my eyes closed! No filter or editing needed.

    Chanel? (And leaf print with trees behind it?) I think Bella Hadid on POP owns that cover moment for this season

    Like the second picture here. Wish I was there!

    Seriously!?! I mean, apparently the blue fleece is from Balenciaga. This is why I can't wholly get behind most indie magazines. Absolutely lacking in any sense of aspiration. Only those lacking in any form of taste or discernment would actually look at the second pic and say 'yes, I want to be there, or wear that.'

    Benn98, I wish you were the editor of a magazine, I’m sure I would buy every issue. Your knowledge, vision and unbiased opinions are always a pleasure to read in threads. You know how to state your opinion, and defend it, without being catty and rude, much appreciated

    It's everything that you seem to ignore..

    Love me some Blood Orange :heart:.. just feel good music and nice taste in everything he does. Most intriguing is that he is evidently quite busy with his occupation but somehow also takes the time to comment on two thirds of LA/London/NY's IG posts and he's probably buddies with your buddy.. probably doesn't know what low battery or sleeping like a baby means..

    This magazine is so tired and unoriginal it's not even funny.

    I mean, what is there to say. Lazy and unglamorous imagery is really the thing du jour but I don't have time for most of it. Dazed should stick to their website, compiling SJW tumblrs, doing music coverage (I actually do enjoy that) and conducting interviews. The fashion angle feels like an afterthought when my generation rarely wears anything but gym clothes.

    If you're trying to 'speak truth to power', I imagine you want your message to be as focused and direct as an arrow, rather than as blurry as an acid trip around a campfire.

    I just can't with this stupid magazine, and I will never get the appeal of Dev Hynes.
    I actually like the MIA cover, mostly because I can't recognize her.

    The only reason I got this issue was because I already had all my regulars and ran out of something to tie me over the weekend. There were two covers, Dev's and Mica's. Thought I'd support Tillmans by getting Dev's cover.

    316 pages.

    Review:

    Blow Up - 6 pgs
    Photographer: Hill & Aubrey
    Stylist: Elizabeth Fraser-Bell
    Model: Chen Liu and Emerson Lang

    It's very much in the vein of those first edits you get in British Harper's where the emphasis is mostly on accessories and shoes and you never see the model's face. This one has a slightly more artsy edge, and I liked the focus on design elements.

    The Boys of Jacquemus - 6 pgs
    Photographer: Pierre-Ange Carlotti
    Stylist: No stylist credits, but Jacquemus name is bandied as the 'art director.'
    Model: A bunch of young guys showing off their very newly acquired muscles in most cases. Imagine they're all models from the runway presentation.

    Basically an advertorial disguised as a sort of moodboard of Jacquemus men's line. Shot in Marseilles. It looks very cluttered even though Jacquemus and Carlotti tried to pass it off as effortless. Because as with any business, the brand is trying to get as many pieces into each shot possible. The entire story eventually comes across as a fashion editorial because of all the guys. It's just not believable as story.

    The Unboxing - 6 pgs
    Photographer: Robbie Marks
    Stylist: Charlotte Roberts
    Model: Louis Hartley

    Sneaker edit, consisting of mostly the ugly variety, of course. The first shot opens with the ginger-haired male model, half naked, sniffing a pair of Stella McCartney sneakers. It's just about the most interesting shot of the lot. The rest bored me senseless and bore zero relevance to the first image. Sneaker culture is massive with the youth. And the unboxing of a new pair is always the most exciting bit. This edit missed out on building a story around those first few minutes of excitement.

    Alter Egos - 6 pgs
    Photographer: Mel Bles
    Stylist: Gary David Moore
    Model: Patricia Reina, Vivien, Jack Hoban, Zoe Ose, Julie Rose and Johan Zoo.

    A set of b&w images showing stoic models, which looks like it was shot by Collier Schorr. The focus seems to be mainly on retro hairstyles, but still does the job of selling clothes.

    Sister Act - 8 pgs
    Photographer: Tom Johnson
    Stylist: Neil Kalonji
    Public Figures: Fendi sisters, Delfina and Leonetta

    Essentially another advertorial to flog Fendi's decade anniversary of their handbag. Dressed in head to toe Fendi, naturally.

    Night Flight - 8 pgs
    Photographer: Tom Ordoyno
    Stylist: Elizabeth Fraser-Bell
    Model: Cara Taylor

    A series of framed b&w portraits which highlighting the volume element of one key piece in each shot. Knitwear, tulle, frays, and ruffles. All from one designer ... Noir Kei Ninomiya.
    In some of the shots Cara looks pensive and it works, in others I feel she's too young for this specific story. But overall beautifully shot.

    Jaden Smith - 8 pgs
    Photographer: Benedict Brink
    Stylist: Emma Wyman

    Interview with Jaden as he wax lyrical over his eco collab with G-Star. He comes across as a bit contrived and immature in the interview, and I wouldn't touch his 'designs' with a 10-foot pole, but it's somewhat heartwarming to see a guy of his age thinking beyond getting a front row seat at Louis Vuitton.

    Midnight Cowboy - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Patrick Bienert & Max von Gumppenberg
    Stylist: Elizabeth Fraser-Bell
    Model: Sasha Trautvein

    Advertorial for Saint Laurent Menswear featuring a bunch of sullen-looking teens in an inner city setting. The accompanying copy was far more interesting to read. Vaccarello dared to city New York as his primary source of inspiration for Saint Laurent. So Hedivhad LA, and he's got NY. Hedi loved short proportions and Vaccarello likes short proportions, but some in colour, leather or prints. Can you see where I'm going with this?

    Milly Shapiro - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Charlie Engman
    Stylist: Aveena Gallagher
    Celeb: Milly Shapiro

    Milly sounds like a cute, quirky girl and definitely more likeable than the other Millie, but I can't bear to finish more than one episode of Hereditary. It's mainly her creepy, doll-like looks. To make matters worse, some genius at Dazed cooked up the macabre idea of an edit where she's styled to look like those creepy ceramic dolls which collectors rave about. Someone should send those shots to Marie Osmond and watch her hyperventilate of excitement.

    M.I.A. - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Gareth McConnell
    Stylist: Danny Reed

    Lengthy interview with M.I.A. about her upcoming documentary. I've not read it yet, but the images looks great and I quite like the nomadic styling.

    Dev Hynes - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Wolfgang Tillmans
    Stylist: Danny Reed

    Interview in Q&A format, stopped reading after the 3rd or 4th question, will tackle it again when I'm bored.
    Dunno why there's styling credits because the entire edit is Dev Hynes being Dev Hynes. Tillmans' photography is so so, but there's a shot of him on the beach, wearing a black swim trunks where I can see why some find him attractive. An no, no bulge in sight.

    Kleptomaniacs - 20 pgs
    Photographer: Johnny Dufort
    Stylist: Robbie Spencer
    Model: Sara Grace Wallerstedt, Xie Chaoyu, Hannah Motler, Giselle Norman and Victor Gutierrrez

    Textbook Dufort, if you've seen his work once, you've seen it all. Think sparse studio setting, dim lighting and very light on props. As with the sneaker edit, the concept is beyond solid, that much can be gathered by the styling, which I thought was done by Lotta considering the excess use of Balenciaga. Calvin Klein knitted balaclava (robbers) paired with Balenciaga's voluminous multi-layered jackets (perfect for shoplifters), and in one double page shot the girls loot and destroy a convertible in Marc Jacobs and Simone Rocha. So the styling more than drilled the storyline home. But Dufort's cold and static photography style doesn't quite work here. I know he thinks he's being meta with his crazy angles, but it's an odd pairing.

    Peach Kush - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Clara Balzary
    Stylist: Emma Wyman
    Model: Selena Forrest

    I'm big on Selena, but she's doing some odd pout throughout the edit which is rather bothersome. Styling is done beautifully, and had the photographer opted for more refined vehiclesx this could easily have been the one luxury edit in the issue. There's a dreamy shot of Selena in a Saint Laurent number leaning against a car.

    Country Living - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Charlotte Wales
    Stylist: Camille Bidault-Wellington
    Model: Luna Bijl and Grace Hartzel

    Wales takes a slight departure from her more commercial work which we're used to in POP and all the Vogues for something so unique and captivating. Doe-eyed Grace, who I can't abide at the best of times, really amazed me here. And it should have featured only her. Because Luna looked awkward throughout, probably at a loss that she wasn't required to revert to her standard fierce presence. With this edit I've come to the conclusion that Wales perform much better with a setting. She employed an interesting set designer (Alexander Bock) for this shoot, a rarity in current fashion magazines, who sort of blurred the lines between deliberately real and fake.

    Techno Sorbet - 12 pgs
    Photographer: Angelo Pennetta
    Stylist: Robbie Spencer
    Model: Mica Arganaraz

    A selection of trench coats, all from Margiela Artisanal and mainline. Thank God I could marvel at Galliano's technical brilliance, because Pennetta and Mica would put me to sleep with their dullness. Not much was needed with such imposing works of art, after all. A few slouches from Mica, and Pennetta zooming in on the pieces was quite enough.

    Golden Years - 10 pgs
    Photographer: Heji Shin
    Stylist: Tom Guinness
    Model: Agnes, Ana, Ben, Dylan Jones, and Vita

    Uneventful filler photography coupled with obvious millenial styling - uber luxury labels (Chanel, Prada, LV) but the stylist went for the most normcore looking pieces.

    Qué Lo Que - 12pgs
    Photographer: Liz Johnson Artur
    Stylist: Akeem Smith
    Model: Elibeidy, Carolina, Geraldina, and Ana Maria

    Evening looks shot in the harsh daylight and dark nights of the Dominican Republic. The contrast between the grit, and we are not talking Parisian street grit here, and the luxe of the dresses are quite a winning match. Fashion travel story with a twist.

    Overall the issue kept me entertained somewhat. I just feel like Dazed is too cookie cutter indie with their affected poses and refusal of refinement. Offering your readers some reprieve from can surely spice things up.
    I'm also amazed at not only the sheer amount of advertorials, but also the crazy variety of ad campaigns. Everything from Chanel to Kane to Maje. Many which you'll probably miss out on if you fixate on the more commercial magazines. Definitely way, way more than your average Vogue.
