Johanne Dindler is a graduated student from the Royal College of Art with an MA menswear degree. Her designs explore colors, graphics and volumious shapes, whilst having a great attention to detail. For the final collection Johanne was inspired by a happy state of mind. Imagining a guy that doesn’t care about tomorrow or doesn’t care about what other people think. She explored the 60’s and 70’s fashion and recently textured African costumes, for patterns, embellishing, colors… All mixed with a 90’s hip-hop attitude – big matching outfits with lots of bling and attitude. Materials are leathers, velvets and velours, fur, jerseys and nylons, flowered prints and crystals.
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.
