HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 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 Magazine Issue 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.
Within the Temporal Issue, we delve into colorful pasts, the stories of the present and the minds busily shaping the future, in an effort to capture a snapshot of the myriad forces at work which guide and define our generation.
