The latest issue of Another Man is fronted by 19-year-old genre-blurring musical prodigy King Krule, in a story shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Another Man’s creative director Alister Mackie in Bethnal Green's Working Men's Club. Inside, pop commentator Paul Morley gets to grips with the South London wunderkind.
London’s best-connected man and the last impresario of theatreland Michael White shares his memories of 40 years of trailblazing and hell-raising, and exclusively opens his personal photographic archive, while Tim Blanks takes a whistle-stop tour through the netherworld of London’s nightlife and survives to tell the tale.
Photographer Julia Hetta and stylist Robbie Spencer shoot a portfolio of iconic Londoners, including artist/author Harland Miller, designer/stylist Judy Blame and fashion maestro Michael Costiff.
The Spring/Summer fashion is presented by an eclectic group of talent. London legends and creative cohorts Mark Lebon and Judy Blame are let loose on Dior Homme; Vincent Van De Wijngaard and Mattias Karlsson shoot actor Joe Cole; Brett Lloyd and Tom Guinness have a Balearic moment; Alasdair McLellan and Alister Mackie go on a day trip; and Nick Knight joins forces with Mackie and super-stylist Katy England for a London clubkid extravaganza.
All this plus Crash author JG Ballard and Clash frontman Joe Strummer have an impossible conversation; filmmaker John Maybury pores over photographer Derek Ridger’s new book; The Black Skulls biker gang rev up East London; profiles on London’s emerging photographers and fashion designers; and a postcard from Leigh Bowery.
The issue is dedicated to Another Man’s late senior fashion editor Bryan McMahon, whose inspirational work helped form the identity of the magazine.
