Introducing the Autumn/Winter 2020 issue of 10 Men Magazine
Community is the theme for this AW2020 issue of Ten Men, which was produced in lockdown and during social distancing. That challenging time brought the importance of community to the fore. We cannot survive alone. The 320-pages of the magazine are a celebration creative communities and how people come together to lift each other up. Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci stands together on one of our three covers with his muses Lea T and Izaak Theo Adu, both highly visible members of the trans community. The diversity of the gay community, is reflected in Vincent Levy’s fashion shoot ‘Potential New Boyfriend’, which was cast from Grndr. We celebrate London’s creative menswear community with a special designer portrait portfolio and reflect on eerie lockdown London, with the visual diary of acclaimed photographer Jermaine Francis.
For Editor in Chief, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, the power of community lies at the very heart of her creative project. “I am ever thankful and truly blessed to have such incredible people around me: friends, family and my community. They have given me the strength to grow and continue to achieve all the dreams and fantasies. It’s this support that has sustained the creativity and uncompromising vision I am so lucky to have cultivated in my little corner of the world. I treasure them and cherish them all always."
