We meet Jagmeet and Gurratan Singh, two politicians—and brothers—taking on Trudeau in Toronto, spend a day at work with the imam leading Copenhagen’s first feminist mosque, comb through a history of Diana Ross’ hair, and examine the appearance of hair in everything from forensic science to food. Elsewhere in Issue Twenty-Eight, we pay a visit to the Antwerp studio of painter Rinus Van de Velde, meet professional problem solver Helen Nonini, speak to rising Korean fashion designer Shinhye Suk, and unpack subjects as diverse as matchmaking, regret, rocks, and more.
Kinfolk is a slow lifestyle magazine published by Ouur that explores ways for readers to simplify their lives, cultivate community and spend more time with their friends and family. Founded in 2011, Kinfolk is now the leading independent lifestyle magazine for young creative professionals and also produces international editions in Japan, China, Korea and Russia. Published quarterly, Kinfolk maintains a vibrant contributor base from Copenhagen to Cape Town. Every element of Kinfolk—the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
