Asher Levine’s fourth collection for Spring/Summer 2012 to be shown at New York Fashion Week, taps into the socio-political zeitgeist, as it centers on the theme of a spreading epidemic in a city-society much like our own. The collection features accentuated vertical zippers, billowing sleeves and knitted nets.
Cover story captured by Matt Irwin and art directed by Nicola Formichetti with actor and singer Olly Alexander, an openly gay singer who doesn’t use ambiguity in his lyrics to make him pass for straight, in order to entice a legion of screaming girls. FY! also analyse various points of view of what an outsider is through editorials, texts and interviews with among others Ahmed Abdelrahman, Demna Gvasalia and Henrik Silvius.
