Magazine Description

In this issue

Men’s Folio May ’19, with “Dynamic” as its theme, is the first attempt at dedicating an issue to boys’ toys. How does a men’s fashion title approach this? A potential pitfall is to project into a future based on technological advancements; technology is the future, after all. But with that, we would further paint fashion as a dream that is unattainable by the masses, even though technological advancements have been used to democratise the industry. Features and watch editor, Yong Wei Jian echoes this sentiment with his exploration of “fashion tech” on page 48 because some of these advancements are unfathomable and unnecessary for the everyday people. Lest we forget, we are living in the technologically advanced reality right now. Editor-in-chief, Wilson Lim worked with eight currently available tech gadgets for this issue’s fashion spread (on page 62) while fashion stylist and writer, Sapphire Chin explored current technological advances in fabrics and manufacturing in Pre-Fall ‘19 fashion on page 28. There has been so much criticism about screen addiction, but the biggest worry is that human-to-human connections and interactions are suffering despite us being more “connected” on social media. Cover star, Shane Pow shares about screen addiction and the consequent human-to-human disconnections but is conflicted when it comes to the convenient interactions he has with his fans (page 52). Despite “staying woke” to the consequences, we continue rolling down the slippery slope just because we can. Contributing writer Valerie Wong questions the necessity of fitting vintage cars with electric engines given the rise of electric vehicles in recent years (page 49) while digital writer Jocelyn Tan explores dining experiences enhanced by technology such as holographic projections on food (page 106). Live in the now, let this issue of Men’s Folio show you the technological world as it passes you by, and revel in all the goodness with which that we have been blessed.
