Global fashion platform SSENSE has unveiled the second issue of its biannual print magazine. This time, the publication debuts three distinct covers featuring SSENSE collaborators Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss, artist Petra Collins and model Kiko Mizuhara. The over 200-page collection of photography and interviews explore a new way forward as the world encounters and responds to an unprecedented global health crisis.
For Jean-Raymond’s cover story, the self-titled “freeform artist” speaks to Antwaun Sargent about car culture and the freedom he finds within his car club. The second issue also includes a peek at Collins’ first fashion collaboration, called “I’m Sorry by Petra Collins,” which was designed and produced in partnership with SSENSE. Photographed by Collins herself, the editorial features herself and friends Mizuhara, Ama Elsesser and Severine Santos, followed by an exclusive interview by Natasha Stagg. The magazine also extends online with mixed media previews, scannable codes and behind the scenes footage, allowing readers to move between the physical print copy and SSENSE’s digital hub.
“The weeks ahead will show us whether we can embrace how international we have truly become, working together to overcome…” says Editor-In-Chief Joerg Koch in his editor’s letter. “At SSENSE we embrace this energy in a magazine that depicts a collision of perspectives—historical and futurist, pop cultural and niche, slowed-down and hyper-accelerated—from both sides of the Pacific Ocean.”
Check out the magazine now on SSENSE’s website. Physical copies are available exclusively to select members of the SSENSE community.
