Johnny Magazine


Johnny is a menswear print magazine. It refuses the clichés of masculinity and men's fashion, searching instead for the wild and bright things that lie beyond them. Through fashion editorials, critical essays, and poetry, Johnny imagines how men could be, without providing a definitive solution to how they should be.
