The latest edition of HYPEBEAST Magazine is here, the Circle Issue and it’s full of MSCHF. You might remember the notorious New York-based art collective for their provocative creations like the Big Red Boots, the sinister Satan Shoes with Lil Nas X and the infamous ATM Leaderboard. They’re known for causing chaos and stirring the pot, but what really motivates them is a mystery… until now. In a rare and revealing interview, five members of MSCHF (who, of course, refuse to reveal their identities) spill the tea on their unconventional creative process, what inspires their daring projects and why they’re not just in it for the attention-grabbing controversies.

The Circle Issue also includes exclusive stories with Hypebeast 100 awardees, such as KIDSUPER, Julian Klincewicz, and Kyle Ng’s Brain Dead, who discuss everything from breaking stigmas around subcultures to the intention behind their brands. Hypebeast Magazine #31 also features interviews with graffiti artist KATSU, photographer Nadia Lee Cohen, and digital furniture designer Muddycap. The founders of Ghanaian streetwear brand FREE THE YOUTH and Iranian artist Bijan Berahimi discuss the diaspora and the beauty of their respective cultural heritage, while Turnstile, the hottest band in hardcore, discusses evolving the genre and what makes it so unique, while Zack Bia speaks on his Field Trip Records label.

Besides that, there are extensive features with vinyl record collectors and DJs, a hand-dying how-to from Lookout & Wonderland, a roundtable with three creatives pushing the boundaries of AI design, and features with POST ARCHIVE FACTION (PAF), Sillage founder Yuthanan, Western Hydrodynamic Research, plus much more, from a rare bookstore guide to a chat with TikTok creators and product spotlights on unique chairs, light sculptures, and dumbbells.
