ON THE COVER – actor Tanner Buchanan stars in this summer’s blockbuster He’s All That, a reimagining of 1999’s coming-of-age epic, She’s All That. Tanner is in conversation with the film’s director Mark Waters (who was also responsible for Mean Girls…) and is photographed by Drew Jarrett and styled by Cece Liu.
Plus: Kenzo cover
Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s final collection for Kenzo is captured for posterity in all its colourful, oversize, spontaneous glory – shot by Szilveszter Makó in Milan.
As Season 2 of Love, Victor hits Disney+, star Michael Cimino is shot by Michael Avedon in Los Angeles, and styled by Sharon Chitrit.
Netflix summer escape Outer Banks also returns for a second season, its lead Madelyn Cline chills out in the balmy LA air, and refreshes in a pool nestled in the Hollywood hills. While two posters, one by Walter Pfeiffer and one by Paul Jasmin, unfold gorgeously to adorn your forlorn walls.
And it wouldn’t be the HERO Summer Zine without sun-soaked, colour-filled, sea-salt enriched editorials – this year Yann Faucher and Steve Morriss capture the endless chill of summer, Malick Bodi plays football on the beach in Sardinia, Matt Kelly shares an archive of his black and white images of summer journeys, Akila Berjaoui shoots her boyfriend Swann Guerrault on a yacht around Hydra and Trevor Stones shoots surf vibes down under. Winter Vandenbrink and Paul Sinclaire take a stroll through the Tuileries in Paris, Jorge Perez Ortiz and Adrian Bernal spend a day at the coast and HERO editor in chief Fabien Kruszelnicki documents boys on bikes sitting (literally) on the edge of their seats, swerving between traffic and living each moment.

A NEW ERA IN MENSWEAR
HERO has quickly become widely recognised as the most relevant, fashion-forward destination for a switched-on, intelligent and demanding readership.Fed up of ‘more of the same’, our audience revels in our fresh perspective.
FROM THE EDITORS
HERO is our antidote to the stuffy and over-thought cultural dryness that has gripped menswear publishing.We strive to make a magazine and website that are not afraid to be visually led and arresting – have beautiful photography, amazing fashion and great, informal interviews with actors, designers and friends – and for that to be something to celebrate and revel in.Our emphatic definition of the season is a joyously curated vision of what we love. No filler news pieces or fluff articles, just pure and bold statements. We are read by taste-making men in their twenties, thirties and forties who love fashion and culture, and want to be excited by it again.
With English, Chinese and Japanese versions and over 300 pages of beautifully printed fashion stories and interviews, HERO is collectible. It’s read, re-read and kept forever.October is our Winter/Spring edition, and April our Summer/Fall edition. This means we shoot a huge amount of new season before anyone else.The world has evolved, and our readers love to see fashion from the shows without waiting 6 months for other titles to catch up.Our approach to fashion is celebratory and zealous. Embracing the styling, foregrounding the clothes.
