HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue #23 Showcases Verdy, Kim Jones, Dev Hynes & More
The 23rd issue of HYPEBEAST Magazine focusses on learning about the journey of a few individuals who are enjoying blazingly successful careers, and were promptly reminded that something else lies beyond the linear progress we associate with hard work – more specifically, a host of murky decisions and the odd piece of luck, towed laboriously along the road to glory by a vague-yet-pressing instinct to do something that matters to us.
The latest instalment of HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 23: The Sequence Issue is an unintentionally-ironic collection of missteps, triumphs and candor – stories from whom we assumed have it made proving that they too, often didn’t have things figured out.

Verdy, the leading man of Girls Don’t Cry and who designed an exclusive cover for the this issue, currently finds himself at the forefront of a label gaining traction at an exponential rate, yet his first product from Girls Don’t Cry wasn’t made for sale. Andrew Richardson talks about about his youth and the story behind Richardson Magazine’s beginnings in the late 90s, a risqué publication even within the context of today.
Then there are stories put through a meticulous lens, practices such as Dev Hynes’ – or Blood Orange’s – documentarian approach to music. Kim Jones, the undisputed father of luxury sportswear, speaks to us about his new gig as menswear director of Dior Homme.
