Harper’s BAZAAR Men is an all-new menswear magazine edited by Kim Jones that has launched with star-studded covers designed by KAWS.

The cover stars include Travis Scott, J Balvin, Dior creative director and magazine editor Kim Jones, Maluma and Orville Peck. Each is placed against a KAWS-designed background that adopts the artist’s archetype use of abstract shapes and colors. Jones enlisted Hugo Scott for the photography, and Dior menswear clothing that he designed for the wardrobe — resulting in the line-up clad in some of Dior’s most sought after pieces such as the blouson, embossed saddlebag, the RIMOWA Personal Case and plenty of jewelry.


Rounding off the cover’s creative roster is Daniel Arsham — who recently collaborated with DIOR — and has now added to his portfolio by developing the magazines’ typeface. For Orville Peck, Stephen Jones created a custom Dior face mask and hat for the country singer to wear in his front-page shoot, nodding to the artist’s elusive character, core aesthetic and Dior’s contribution.

In a piece Kim Jones wrote for Harper’s BAZAAR, he notes that the inspiration for the covers came from the work of the late Antonio Lopez. Jones said, “I was thinking about his New York, about the mix and diversity of the people Antonio photographed and drew in the 1970s and ’80s — the vibrancy and energy, the freedom — and I wanted to capture some of that in these images and reflect it through fashion for now.”

Jones added, “Antonio Lopez’s work brought all kinds of people together, and for me, that’s what America is all about, what it should be about. And it’s what fashion is about too — not elitism but inclusion, not dividing people but bringing people together.”

Take a look at all of the covers below, and pick up a copy of Harper’s BAZAAR Men edited by Kim Jones on newsstands now.
