HERO 23: MIDNIGHT SOLEIL takes us on a journey of surrealism and the unknown: the twilight in between logic and the abstract.

Hedi Slimane photographs Alex Evans from rising UK band Lumer for the cover of HERO 23, documented as part of a portfolio of some of the most exciting and relevant UK musicians photographed by Slimane in London. 

Also in the issue: 

Actor Toby Wallace reflects on his journey from small-town dreams to winning Best New Talent award at the Venice Film Festival. Legendary NYC Club Kid Walt Cassidy takes us back to the scene’s heyday, tracing its enduring legacy alongside exclusive imagery.

We travel to rising singer-songwriter Alex Sampson’s house in the middle of Southwestern Ontario, documenting the social media phenomenon around his hometown.

Broadway star Isaac Powell takes us through the emotive spectrum of treading the iconic boards as the lead in the new adaptation of West Side Story, while New York designer Emily Bode takes us inside her first brick-and-mortar space to discuss the rise of her eponymous menswear brand. Ten LA musicians take us through the exhilaration of placing performance at the core of their practice.

Plus over 300 pages of fashion and photography – photographer Jeff Bark travels with Lana Jay Lackey to an abandoned army compound in Puerto Rico, Serge Leblon shoots a brooding story in Belgium styled by James Sleaford, Victor Demarchelier and Paul Sinclaire capture the bohemian dreamers of Anthony Vaccarello’s SS20 Saint Laurent collection and Yaniv Edry documents an Israeli army pre-recruitment program with stylist Esther Matilla. Hazel Gaskin and Nick Royal take us on a journey at the edges of time for an epic story on location.

A NEW ERA IN MENSWEAR

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.

THE MAGAZINE
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.
