AnOther Magazine | Vol. 2 Issue 4
This issue of AnOther Magazine is an exploration of fashion design in its purest sense, of designers and creative directors unique in their passion for independence and the sheer, heartfelt expression of their points of view.
Guest Creative and Fashion Director Katy England brings her love of fashion creators and her distinctive approach to fashion imagery to the pages, in visionary new shoots with Craig McDean, Alasdair McLellan and Willy Vanderperre.
In a rare interview Azzedine Alaïa speaks to Susannah Frankel about the women he loves and has dressed for over half a century. The accompanying portfolio photographed by Alasdair McLellan features the ultimate fashion family including Kate Moss, Lila Grace Moss Hack, Naomi Campbell, Susie Bick and more.
In an exclusive series of conversations with Demna Gvasalia, Alexander Fury hears how the Vetements designer is facing up the the weight of fashion heritage at Balenciaga. Lotta Volkova and Harley Weir shoot the collection.
On Christopher Kane’s 10th anniversary in fashion, Guardian journalist and fellow Lanarkshire ex-resident Deborah Orr conducts the most intimate interview to date with its sibling directors, revealing how they have spun the experiences of their youth into gold.
Rei Kawakubo’s 18th Century Punk collection is captured in a visually arresting shoot photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Katie Shillingford. In a rare interview Kawakubo connects fashion’s original gang of agitators – Les Incroyables – with the anarchic seventies style tribe that has long played a part in the Comme des Garçons aesthetic.
PLUS: Rick Owens and Michele Lamy guest edit the Document | Jo-Ann Furniss at home with Gilbert & George.

Another Man | Issue 23
Global phenomenon Harry Styles stars on three covers of Another Man. Photographed by Willy Vanderperre, Alasdair McLellan and Ryan McGinley, and styled by Alister Mackie, each unique cover story reveals a separate side to Harry’s character: the rock’n’roll icon, boy next door and romantic hero. In three accompanying articles, Harry calls Paul McCartney to discuss surviving fame, going solo and staying grounded; Gemma Styles pens an intimate story about growing up with her baby brother before she had to share him with the world; and talk show queen Chelsea Handler quizzes Harry on LA life, his love life and the afterlife.
Inside the issue, Harry personally curates a special document featuring: a mini-altar to his idol Stevie Nicks; a portfolio of his most cherished objects, from dog-eared books and beaten-up boots to a lipstick-stained coat; interviews with tattoo artist Liam Sparks, painter Tomo Campbell and tailoring legend Edward Sexton; and a handwritten mixtape of his all-time Top Ten.
Elsewhere, a Dior Homme special, an Alexander McQueen preview, behind-the-scenes of Vetements couture and a pull-out Vivienne Westwood zine; 30 pages of the best from the A/W16 collections; and Tim Blanks takes a personal trip into boy band babylon.
PLUS: A roll call of rising talent from the worlds of film, fashion and music; an ‘Impossible Conversation’ between ultimate heartthrobs Giacomo Casanova and Elvis Presley; stripper boots, miniature notebooks and punk pin-ups.
