Hypebeast 19 – The Temporal Issue, featuring Goyard, one of the most sought-after labels of all time, on its cover. The instantly-recognizable Goyard canvas is rendered into three different covers, and also comes with a nostalgic souvenir inside.
Hypebeast 19 examines the notion of impermanence, an idea especially poignant in today’s culture of hype where trends die premature deaths after the briefest of moments in the limelight, covering brands and collectives as varied in age as possible, from the centuries-old, distinguished craftsmanship of Goyard to labels still gasping from the clutches of youthful angst such as Enfants Riches Déprimés and RHUDE.
We speak to two of the most relevant retail presences today on the nature of change – Dover Street Market on its biannual chameleonic undertakings, and colette in an attempt to immortalize them within our pages as a fond farewell. We also sit down with “The King,” LeBron James, to chat about the future of NBA players, on being a cultural figure and using influence in the right ways – in short, about everything but basketball. Additionally, the masterminds behind the world’s first autonomous racing league, Roborace, have also decked out their proprietary race car in custom Hypebeast livery. We talk to them about why driverless racing is the future, and follow their attempts to push self-driving technology to its limits.
Hypebeast is a lifestyle magazine that features the latest in men’s fashion, art, design and music. Issue 18 explores the five senses with Hajime Sorayama, Gorillaz, Alexander Wang and Nepenthes founder Keizo Shimizu.
Hypebeast was launched in January of 2005 as a media platform originally catering towards the world of sneakers and streetwear. Borne out of a frustration in finding aggregated information, the creation of Hypebeast has subsequently created a unified outlet for all the latest and relevant news in the world of men’s fashion.
