Welcome to issue 24 of Schön! where we celebrate all things rock & roll. Our cover girl, Gigi Hadid, who is taking the fashion industry by storm, is captured on camera by Rayan Ayash. With a sculptural leather piece by Jean Paul Gaultier, Gigi Hadid looks the part and sets the mood for more rock & roll.
We explore the relationship between music and image, both past and present. Legendary photographer Willie Christie, who has shot
everyone from Grace Jones to David Bowie, tells us about shooting the stars of the 70s and we speak to today’s songstresses Sophie
Ellis-Bextor and Kelis about their new albums. We go behind the scenes of the digital revolution that is Spotify, and on stage with
set designer to the stars Baz Halpin, as he creates a mega show for Britney Spears.
But rock & roll is not just about music, it is a cultural phenomenon and a way of life, as relevant today as it was half a century ago. We
speak to celebrity tattoo artist and star of London Ink, Dan Gold, and iconic brand Harley-Davidson tells us how to create the dream
machine. Motorbike and leather lover –not to mention super successful architect – Peter Marino, talks us through his career.
Then, of course, there is fashion, from designer denim to leather and jersey, to couture from Thai brand Busardi, high heels, heavy
metal and big rocks. Don’t forget to don your shades. We bring you the latest sunglasses from cult American brand Chrome Hearts and
street-wise styles from Adidas Eyewear #adidaseyewear. Bright, bold, beautiful and sexy, this is our luxurious interpretation of rock
& roll style, with no shrinking violets allowed.
