HYPEBEAST ISSUE 09 · THE EXPLORATION ISSUE has just landed!
This issue focuses on outdoor equipment and style through interviews and features on Hiroshi Fujiwara, Errolson Hugh, The North Face and more.
"The great outdoors is a vast and natural world, open to exploration and interpretation, whether at a campsite, traversing through the backcountry, or photographing a scenic landscape. Interestingly, most of these exploratory activities are underpinned by both technical and lifestyle products that seemingly bridge the gap between the outdoors and fashion. For HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 9: The Exploration Issue, which launches today, we focused primarily on outdoor equipment and style via interviews and features with influential personalities who pioneer this field. Leading the way is Errolson Hugh of ACRONYM who divulged the philosophy and inspiration behind the brand’s technical garments, his latest project with Nike ACG, and what’s in store for the future. Alongside this, we uncovered a new layer to Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s public persona through the lens of his backcountry snowboarding crew and Burton, visited the headquarters of The North Face to learn about the history and fundamentals of product development for technical gear aimed towards the masses, and sat down with Alexander Stutterheim to talk about how he reappropriated a traditional silhouette to make it modern."
