Dazed celebrates its 20th anniversary this month with its biggest issue ever, over 300 pages packed with exclusive interviews, investigations and unique collaborations. Dazed interviews 20 iconic cultural figures and asks them about 20 years of creativity – including Carine Roitfeld, Kenneth Anger, Gareth Pugh, Peaches, Scott Walker, Miranda July and many more. The issue also features the ‘Cover Art’ Project – with 20 classic Dazed covers from the past reimagined by today’s leading artists, including Tracey Emin, Terence Koh, Jonathan Meese and Aaron Rose. Dazed also invites the likes of Kate Moss, Dolce & Gabbana, Viktor & Rolf, Rankin and Vivienne Westwood to select personal artefacts that represent the past 20 years, for the Dazed ‘Time Capsule’. As well as an exclusive encounter with Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize holder and leader of the Burmese democracy movement, Dazed also presents an iconic cover shoot guest art-directed by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, photographed by Matthew Stone and styled by Katy England, plus all the latest in fashion, art, music, film and politics. Happy 20th anniversary!
