Popeye – Issue 886: Style Sample 2021
POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”.
(JAPANESE LANGUAGE ONLY)
The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.
It’s time for Style Sample! This year, we shot at 18 cities in the world, including some new locations for us, such as Moscow and Tel Aviv. In NY, we interviewed A24 crew, photographing their unique outfits with vintage clothing. Kyle from Brain Dead called upon A$AP Nast, while young staff, from various independent radio stations in Berlin, hung out just like after school!
Styles are based on our thoughts so it’s all up to the individuals. There is no right answer to fashion, and therefore, it would be fun to think about what my own style is. Hopefully with this edition…!
