Hypebeast Magazine Issue 25 (the Mania Issue) is out now. For HYPEBEAST Magazine’s commemorative 25th edition, we chose to focus on “Mania” – the blindsided obsession, the fixation driven almost to the point of madness that serve as apt descriptors for our culture of blind materialism today.
Within this issue, we explore different facets of mania – careers which require decades of intense concentration such as that of a chef, visual artist, craftsman, athlete – as well as sectors situated at the epicenter youth (and adult) fixation including video games and football. We asked the man who often finds himself in the thick of it all, Takashi Murakami, to front this issue’s cover with one of his instantly recognizable works – along with a resealable box that comes in three colorways.
Hypebeast is a lifestyle magazine that features the latest in men’s fashion, art, design and music.
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.
