The new issue of Dazed brings together culture’s brightest and boldest agenda-setters set to make this summer look and sound like nothing you’ve ever seen. Reflecting on the world-wielding success of his debut album, Zayn Malik is lensed by Collier Schorr in his most revealing shoot and interview yet; genre-defying actress and artist India Menuez leads the charge of Ryan McGinley’s special portfolio of female creatives, including Frankie Cosmos, SZA, Petra Collins, Kelsey Lu and more; and Dutch model of the moment Yasmin Wijnaldum is wide awake in Viviane Sassen’s dreamland.
Elsewhere, Genesis P-Orridge reflects on the political apocalypse to come and decades as the high priest/ess of gender fluidity; the boy with the cherryade braids Lil Yachty discusses his meteoric rise into the hearts and feeds of a generation; Oliver Sim is shot in a surreal Dior Homme special by the sea; Rihanna collaborator Bibi Bourelly proves why she is pop’s most unapologetic new voice; and Byron Newman shares unseen images from his time spent with a defiant community of transgender sex workers in 1980s Paris. In fashion, Roe Ethridge lends her surreal lens to the season’s accessories; Brianna Capozzi and Emma Wyman roll up for an afternoon in a paper house; and Venetia Scott celebrates Hedi Slimane’s final, exhilarating ride at Saint Laurent.
