The latest issue of AnOther Magazine celebrates romance and the screen angels and fashion gods pushing its core tenets to the extreme.
A role model for our times, activist and actor Indya Moore graces our cover and centrefold poster, photographed by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo. In an open-hearted interview with Emma Hope Allwood, the actor explores the expansive power of community, playing Angel in Ryan Murphy’s agenda-setting TV show Pose, the value of public platform and, above all, harnessing human kindness and joy.
Disney star and superhero Naomi Scott is a role model of another kind. Playing one of Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels in the director’s upcoming reboot, Scott stands at the forefront of a major gear-shift in Hollywood. As casting calls become increasingly diversified, the down-to-earth Indian-Brit star rewrites the industry landscape in her image. Photographed by Collier Schorr and styled by Katie Shillingford, our second cover star talks to Hannah Lack about the heroes she longed for growing up.
Jonathan Anderson is among the most important voices in fashion. Having simultaneously helmed both his eponymous label and the Spanish luxury goods house Loewe since 2013, his output and influence has become omnipresent. In an in-depth dual profile, the designer talks to Susannah Frankel about both distinctive worlds; Viviane Sassen photographs JW Anderson while Mark Peckmezian shoots Loewe.
Rick Owens, a hopeless romantic, talks to Tim Blanks about poets, artists, deities and mortality. His latest collection borrows from the fantastical legend of couturier Charles James – photographed by Craig McDean we present a serenade to Owens’ boundary-defying vision.
Belgian designer Raf Simons has long been dedicated to capturing the romance of youth and the optimism of the future. Photographed by, and on, Simons’ fashion family, his current menswear collection is presented side-by-side with pieces from the mid-nineties, when his life in fashion began. Simons talks to Alexander Fury about rebellion and broken hearts.
Karl Lagerfeld is perhaps the most profoundly romantic designer of them all. His final collection for Chanel was a thing of unparalleled beauty and is here photographed tenderly by Casper Sejersen. Comme des Garçons president, Adrian Joffe, writes about the 15th anniversary of the revolutionary retail store Dover Street Market, as illustrated by artists Scheltens & Abbenes. Natacha Ramsay-Levi meanwhile, heralds a new era of modern femininity at Parisian fashion house Chloé, as exhibited by photographer Katja Rahlwes.
For Art Project, multidisciplinary French artist Camille Henrot looks at form, idolatry and corporeality in a new series of paintings, System of Attachment. Accompanied by a free-wheeling discourse with acerbic author Natasha Stagg, she presents collages of her forensically gathered research imagery, created exclusively for AnOther Magazine. Via the naivety of cartoons, Henrot layers the historic with the contemporary in a poetic exploration of information in the digital age.
This issue’s 32-page Document is an ode to the radical beauty of Derek Jarman’sourve. Coinciding with a major retrospective of his work entitled PROTEST! at Dublin’s IMMA this autumn, Tilda Swinton,John Waters, Luca Guadagnino, Olivia Laing and others remember his life and work and reflect on how his bravery has informed their own creativity in today’s turbulent times.
