Magazine Description

In this issue

“Reading is Fundamental” might be a popular challenge in drag culture that refers to the art of throwing shade at another queen with love, but its literal meaning could not be more apt for this “Big F” issue. The creation of fashion is synonymous with knowledge of the visual language, history and culture. It is once said that fashion is frivolous, yet throughout generations, sub-culture groups have been leading its waves — influencing politically charged works in the arena and pushing designers to consider their positioning in society. Utility serves as an important context to the many decisions made in fashion and contemporary culture. Art director of Integrated Media, Izwan Abdullah and fashion stylist and writer, Manfred Lu have packed these examples in the September ’21 fashion bumper issue of Men’s Folio. The Fall/Winter ’21 trend report on page 30 is a collectively reflective and deep-rooted wish to head outside while the fashion spread on page 94 is a poetic expression of movement captured in stills. The conversation of democracy is also examined alongside as we showcase the latest fashion spread (page 132) with four gentlemen to challenge the media’s fixation on youth culture. While styles like denim have become a staple piece in fashion, the industry itself is becoming more pervasive in making consumers fall victims to trends. The discarding of clothing and threads is an issue today, and we want to be more committed to presenting narratives that push for the appreciation of ateliers and craftsmanship, rather than quick buys. Eyes on the prize, they say. In the wake of global upheaval and the climate crisis, perhaps the prize is a more critical look into sustainability and sustenance — including the emotional and mental aspects of fashion work. So if reading is fundamental, what Men’s Folio cannot lose sight of is how people want to grow, and what makes sense to learn from in current environments.
