The Photography duo Saty+Pratha created an editorial around the character of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel “Diary”, for Grit magazine. Styled by the styling duo Tzarkusi(Naz and Kusi), the models Ash Stymest (Elite), Ben Waters (Models1), Matt King (Next) wear pieces by Martine Rose, Matthew Miller, Mawi, Omar Kashoura etc and headpieces by Tomihiro Kono.
The central character in the novel “Diary” in simple terms is a blue-blood artist from a small west-coast town. He comes from a previously-monied family but lives a very unostentatious and drab art school existence. He has a draconian style of dress that involves boxy sweaters and lots of antique silver and rhinestone jewelry.
Cover story 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.
