VMAN 41: FORCES OF SPRING CHARLIE HEATON
The rebirth of men’s fashion is here, as the Spring 2019 collections proved by sound- ing a seismic change in the menswear land- scape. With debuts by Hedi Slimane at Celine, Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, Riccardo Tisci at Burberry, Kim Jones at Dior Men, and Kris Van Assche at Berluti, the influx of “new” was accompanied by overall shifts in the way men approach dressing. Gone is the monolithic “man”—an imagined ideal dictated by gender and societal norms—and in his place is the call to embrace art and experimentation, as the VMan has done since the beginning.
Second in VMAN’s Forces of Spring is Charlie Heaton as "The Eccentric" wearing Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller. The pro-drummer-turned-streaming sensation chats with friend and director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte about bringing his “stranger” sensibility to sci-fi blockbusters, including an upcoming role in The New Mutants and the third season of Stranger Things.
