Meet the creatives setting new agendas for accelerated culture in Dazed’s new issue
Dazed’s spring issue, which grew side-by-side with the digital Dazed 100, celebrates the most vital voices shaking up youth culture in 2016. Ahead of the release of her long-awaited album, pop’s hardest feeler Sky Ferreira takes control in a shoot by Collier Schorr; future-R&B radical Kelela breaks hearts with her debut album; and Shayne Oliver and Arca are feeling themselves with their hyper-sensual musical project Wench. Also fronting this issue, switched-on Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka is wide awake in dreamland, while Jazz Jennings leads the charge of a new generation of LGBTQ kids.
Elsewhere, we’ve got the inside story on Dazed 100 stars Hari Nef, Abra, Tyler Ford, Selah Marley and Alexandra Marzella; Andrew Miksys and Lotta Volkova journey to Lithuania’s post-Soviet discotheques to shoot the Vetements archive; Martin Parr reveals unseen images from decades of lensing the nation’s everyday magic; Rose McGowan reveals how she is calling the shots in her personal creative renaissance; fashion’s favourite buzzcut beauty Ruth Bell goes under Robi Rodriguez’s rose-tinted lens; Mabel shows why she’s everyones new favourite R&B truth-teller; and we introduce serpentwithfeet, the mythmaking New Yorker creating music that is no less vital for being vulnerable. In fashion, Roe Ethridge and Robbie Spencer use their twin-tuition; Casper Sejerson and Elizabeth Fraser-Bell are inspired by new-age bike couriers; and Camille Vivier and Nell Kalonji see the season’s accessories in full bloom.
