Officially summer

7 July 2022

It’s summer! And that can only mean one thing – the HERO Summer Zine; sun-drenched, beach air-dried, dusky sunset-soaked goodness.

Earl Cave is on the cover, shot by the one-and-only Hedi Slimane. STYLE STYLE STYLE! Effortless cool. Cave is in conversation with director Paul Feig.


Power models Adot and Aweng pull power moves on a second cover, shot by Mark Seliger and styled by Daniel Edley.

Inside: Four huge, collectable posters of model-of-the-moment William Franklyn-Miller in t-shirt, leather and cowboy hat respectively (watch out for a chance to win a signed copy) – shot by Fabien Kruszelnicki and styled by Steve Morriss.

UK Tennis’ bright new star Jack Draper is starting to rip up the courts, we shoot portraits and hang out during a gruelling practice – Draper is in conversation with boxing champion Richard Riakporhe.

Natasha Bassett plays Elvis’ first girlfriend, Dixie Locke, in Baz Luhrmann’s new epic biopic that’s blowing up in cinemas across the world – Bassett is shot in LA by Doug Inglish.

The smooth world of inline skating crazing through the US is captured by Danielle Levitt – @ruinmist and his crew glide through the streets of Texas; artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster takes us on sensorial trips through alien otherworlds, we introduce new face Sebastian Roda, Stéphanie Gaboué travels to the Ivory Coast to shoot friends on the beach, and Trevor Stones’ sherbet-hued Australian adventure continues.
