NOTION 055 – THE HOMMES TIME ISSUE
It's reaching the end of 2011, and what a year it's been for us! and so we have dubbed this issue Hommes Time. Not only because it's almost time for the editorial staff to venture out of London to our parental homes for the Christmas Holidays but also because we have - almost subconsciously - sneaked an alarming amount of man-based stuff into this issue. From a glorious array of super sneakers in the FOB to a selection of interviews with our favourite upcoming male musicians, this issue has enough testosterone to enter the World Beard And Moustache Championships. Read ahead, be inspired.
AZARI & III
Seb Law talks to the freshest act around about dance, house, disco, and everything in between. We're hooked on 'em, and no doubt you will be in 2012.
Finn Vine's namesake goes all meta on our asses as he interviews himself in 2013. Read to believe.
Kara Simsek speaks to the extraordinary seventeen-year-old who already has himself a recording studio in Hoxton, a record deal with EMI and a No.3 hit under his belt.
WRAP UP WARM AND EXPLORE
An autumn fashion story about folk craft, extreme sports and eyewear brands. Expect rainbow-coloured knitwear swamping a beautiful bearded man.
We have a brief encounter with Destiny's Child alumnus and star in her own right on the seventh floor of a swanky hotel.
We take a handful of malnourished, tattooed, pierced lads, and shoot them on a council estate. Pretty hot.
Alexis Knox styles this dark, brooding shoot with a slightly more atypical crew as they explore the farthest, most obscure corners of the city. Shot by Elliott Morgan.
We’ve been exploring the best of the undiscovered bits of Europe’s cultural scene, with a report from Aurora Fashion Week Russia by the phantasmagorical fashion designer Emma Bell.
Alex Lee Thompson has a giggle with all female choir Gaggle, we talk to nu femme-pop duo War Of Words, Part One of The Secret Male Model diaries, Kara Simsek waxes lyrical about Bugged Out, Jensen Sportag's Austin Wilkinson has a heart-to-heart with Bronya Francis, Raf of Two Bears reminisces on the golden era of the white label, and we speak to the man behind the gorgeous Gym Class Magazine, Steven Gregor.
