    The weirdest celebrity/photographer match on Earth. Looks terrible. Uniqlo catalogues look better than this, and looking at the clothes - looks like this image came straight out of there.

    I mean, they can make the issue about anything but at the end of the day this is still a mediocre shot. I can't believe Mert & Marcus shot it, I don't see them at all.

    Does photographed remotely mean over Zoom?
    it cant be in person as Mert is in the UK. Unless Marcus is in LA and went over to his house with a camera...

    you're making that hoodie desirable. :lol:

    How fashion obsesses over Pharrell and ASAP Rocky as their default black guys never ceases to amaze me... plenty of talent out there, Roddy Ricch has been on the top 5 of most charts for months now, but by all means... the guy who stole someone's song and the other whose last relevant album was in 2012 but happens to sit in front row every season...

    It seems like we can’t escape Pharrell...Even in 2020.

    Disappointed in Mert&Marcus for the pedestrian « on trend » photography.

    Pharrell is actually a phenomenal songwriter and producer (well, at least as part of the Neptunes/ when flanked by Chad Hugo, which doesn't happen much these days) who has produced some of the Noughties' most iconic pop songs, and beyond that some real specialist R'n'B/hip hop classics (702, Kelis, Ludacris, Latrelle, Clipse...I could go on, but I'm just flexing now :lol:).

    In the last decade he has really lost it quite a lot, as he's become more of a cheesy commercial entity and therefore become pushed more and more by the fashion industry, of course. But his influence on music from around 1998 - 2010 cannot be denied. I mean The Neptunes are/were perhaps just below Timbaland in terms of being the most phenomenal producers in black music and beyond. The talent is real.

    I can't speak much for Asap as I haven't really followed his career closely - I've just enjoyed a few of his odd jams like 'Fashion Killa' :rofl:. But he seems to have a genuine passion for fashion, and quite frankly I'd rather see him on the front row than Olivia Parlermo, Rita Ora or the tragic Die Antwoord...I know some of these people are irrelevant, OK sorry!

    It is important that we do see new black artists embraced by the fashion industry though, of course, especially as we move through what will hopefully be a moment of positive change!

    Anywho, back to this cover. It's fine, very forgettable. Considering it was shot on "Zewmm" it looks pretty decent. I do just wish M&M would re-embrace their tacky, brash, Bourdin side again though. Indie vibes are not for them, even if it's what every magazine still want (let's make it stop now, please!).

    I can’t stand him since I knew what he did to Kelis.

    Amateur cover, I don't understand why Mert and Marcus stop playing with the colors and over retouching their photos that was their trade mark.

    ^ Maybe because two digital "artists" called Luigi & Iango came along (one used to be (still is?) one of the industry's best hair stylists before a huge overdose of ego).

    Wow. I read this interview with the Guardian. Sad! Even worse is that I didn't know Nas was violent towards her during their time together. She is a fantastic artist, so I hope things look up for her in the future.

    Same, and why aren't we seeing her on the covers instead?

    Maybe because despite her iconic status, she never had that much success in the US and her audience is relatively small for a person of her popularity. And as far as her connection with fashion...Apart from the support of Nicolas Ghesquiere in the early 2000’s and a vague one with Galliano in the late 00’s, it wasn’t really that.
    She is a bit like Erykah Badu in that aspect. And I don’t think she cares at this point even if I would love for her to be linked with a designer again.
