After a brief hiatus, HYPEBEAST magazine just returned with its 30th edition, dubbed The Frontiers Issue. Featuring NIGO on the special edition cover, the latest issue highlights the fashion mogul’s cultural influence on streetwear and music with a dive into his past, current, and future movements in the creative sphere.
Joining NIGO in giving a unique lens on complex cultural shifts and influential ideas are fellow industry pioneers: Raf Simons reminisces on his childhood to creative beginnings; Teezo Touchdown opens up about navigating through his journey as a rising music artist; Chance the Rapper looks forward to reaching new creative heights after making a name for himself; Devon Turnbull speaks about fusing sound and sight in his hand-crafted audio devices; Olaolu Slawn tells his story as a breakout street artist and Nigeria’s first skater and teases what’s yet to come.
Opening Ceremony, Nike, RTFKT, Oliver Sim, Glenn Martens, WINNIE New York, Ben Ganz, and more tastemakers alike pack the spread with further insights into the multiple realities and new forces within art, fashion, design, and entertainment through chronicling brand history to narrating present-day shifts on the precipice of change.
To mark the beginning of a new chapter for the publication, a glimpse of the 30th issue is also teased at THE SHOPHOUSE’s mini gallery space called Side Space. Those based in Hong Kong can peep at the magazine issue that sheds light on what it takes and means to be trailblazers in the vanguard of a burgeoning, dynamic community. For others, HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 30: The Frontiers Issue is now available for online purchase on HBX.
