It’s the last stop on a whirlwind year at HERO HQ – this summer we launched The HERO Summer Zine, full of pop and adrenaline and energy and colour, and now we’re super pumped to share with you our latest project, specifically conceived for curling up with on a cozy winters night, wrapped in blankets, fire crackling in the fireplace, with a glass of whiskey as the snow starts to fall against the windows. Or pack it in your bag for those long travels back home over the holidays.
The HERO Winter Annual features two very special covers, with two of the most exciting actors on TV right now. Brandon Flynn from 13 Reasons Why in conversation with co-star Alisha Boe, and KJ Apa, from Riverdale. The issue also features actor-director Karen Gillan from the highly anticipated Jumaji reboot, shot by Michael Avedon, and one of fashion’s hottest model couples, Lemmie and Estella share a personal photo diary of their travels around the world. Packed with art features and short stories, the issue includes a monumental roundtable discussion with the curators of New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art on their work supporting emerging artists as well as a deep, thoughtful conversation between artist Thomas Ruff and critic and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. Plus hanging out with guys on snowy mountain tops and gorgeous winter landscapes from Bruce Weber’s archives, and an insight into intrepid London designer Aitor Throup’s first show at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre, written by the designer himself.
HERO Magazine has quickly become widely recognised as the most relevant, fashion-forward destination for a switched-on, intelligent and demanding readership. HERO is our antidote to the stuffy and over-thought cultural dryness that has gripped menswear publishing. We strive to make a magazine and website that are not afraid to be visually led and arresting – have beautiful photography, amazing fashion and great, informal interviews with actors, designers and friends – and for that to be something to celebrate and revel in. Our emphatic definition of the season is a joyously curated vision of what we love. No filler news pieces or fluff articles, just pure and bold statements. We are read by taste-making men in their twenties, thirties and forties who love fashion and culture, and want to be excited by it again. With English, Chinese and Japanese versions and over 300 pages of beautifully printed fashion stories and interviews, HERO is collectible. It’s read, re-read and kept forever. Our approach to fashion is celebratory and zealous. Embracing the styling, foregrounding the clothes.
