Will the FUTURE be as we imagined?
A place where our wildest dreams and deepest desires come together to form our
own personal utopia?
Or will we instead find ourselves drowning in a rubbish heap of mindless gadgetry and consumerism? If we took a look back at our childhood visions of the future, we would see that the future is already here. Electric vehicles, neoprene clothing, fabrics woven from bacteria, chemical weapons, electronic music, stem cells, clones, sensors on every corner, cameras in every street, cameras in our homes… But every time our idealised visions of the future become present reality, we are forced to reimagine our dreams and fantasies into an updated vision of things to come. The future may be uncertain, but one thing we know for sure is that it is made of fantasy.
For the third installment of Fucking Young!, we wanted to explore the dreams and fantasies that reflect our idealised visions of the future, the fantasies of two editors working on the launch of their third issue, the fantasies of emerging designers who are paving new roads in the world of fashion. We counted on the participation of international photographers like Alek Pierre, Alice Rosati, Bichon + Bichon, Edu Garcia, Frederik Heyman, Jerry Buttles, Luca Finotti, Michiel Meewis, Roman Goebel, Wendelien Daan and Wilkosz & Way, as well as recognised models like Florian van Bael, Paul Boche, Rutger Schoone, Reuben Ramacher, Jester White and a big etcetera. The magazine is split into five chapters, with 11 fashion editorials, illustrations by Mario González, texts about art, music, cinema, interviews with Kris Van Assche, Damir Doma, Tim Coppens, Christopher Shannon, Julian Zigerli, Roberto Piqueras, Agi & Sam, Antonio Azzuolo… And much more!
