The latest issue of WIP magazine is now available from Carhartt WIP stores and our online shop. Now in its fifth installment, the publication returns in its most comprehensive form yet. Stories stretch from New York’s Chinatown, as seen through the eyes of modern-day multi-hyphenate Simonez Wolf, to Port Arthur, Texas, birthplace of Pimp C, Bun B, and Paris Aden — the nascent music producer reshaping the sound of her home state. Also included is a tribute to the seminal and subversive British comic 2000 AD, with original artworks created by the likes of Oliver Payne, Ed Davis, Leomi Sadler, Ancco, and Skatething.
Carhartt WIP team rider Maité Steenhoudt, meanwhile, teams up with sustainable London label Loutre, to create a series of upcycled garments. Alex Quicho, author of Small Gods, discusses drones in the context of art and modern warfare. Adam Wray explores how a rain-beating fabric manufacturer from Delaware wormed its way into rap’s lingua franca. Stray Rats founder Julian Consuegra offers insight into his archive of esoteric ephemera. And Holly Connolly speaks to legendary art critic, playwright, and novelist Gary Indiana.
This season’s Carhartt WIP collection is also interpreted through the eyes of two photographers: London-based Sirui Ma and Berlin’s Tom Kleinschmidt.
