For our bumper October issue, we’ve decided to take you on a world tour with a difference, stopping in Mexico, the US, Estonia, Poland, Canada, South Africa, France, Turkey, Spain, Kurdistan, Italy, Ukraine, New Zealand and the British countryside. En route you’ll meet avant-garde pop singers Glasser, SZA, Jessy Lanza and Lorde; Cape Town digi-funk squad John Wizards; Brooklyn’s fiercest femcees, Dai Burger and Junglepussy; Rick Owens’ favourite Eurovision punks, Winny Puhh; southern sizzurper Juicy J; and distorted Derbyshire duo Drenge. You’ll explore the ocean floor with Fabien Cousteau as he prepares to live underwater for a month; travel to Istanbul to meet the transgender protestors standing up to oppression; rave in the Montana mountains with photographer John Kilar; peek inside the house of Balmain with Olivier Rousteing; and whip on some stars’n’stripes Speedos for an outrageous LGBT beach party at Fire Island. At a loss for what to pack? Don’t stress, our fashion team have got you covered, with 50 beautiful pages of AW13 looks, including Pierre Debusschere’s psychedelic cover shoot with 19-year-old supermodel Lindsey Wixson.
We’re going off the beaten track. We might never come back. You ready?
