Hey, millennial. Yeah you, with the avocado on your chin and a look of deep-rooted anxiety etched all over your burnt-out, haunted face. We’ve got bad news for you: you’re officially old now. You’re done. You’re being laughed at behind your stooped and hunched back by Gen-Z. Sorry.
Pop prodigy Billie Eilish — ask your uber-trendy younger cousin, the pre-pubescent lad who seems to go to school wearing head-to-toe Stone Island despite not even having a paper round — belongs to that generation of enviable young whippersnappers, and she’s found herself on the cover of super-glossy fashion and lifestyle mag Garage. Oh, and she’s worked with genuinely-legendary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami in one of the weirdest spreads of the year to date. And that’s saying something given that we’ve already seen Dazed Beauty transform Kate Moss and Travis Scott into a pair of CGI centaurs.
If that wasn’t enough, the whole thing was shot by Juno Calypso. The feature is based on Takashi’s 2012 work, Split, which explains why poor old Billie’s gone to all that effort of dressing like someone from the year 4019 only to have her face sequestered into slices.
Elsewhere in the issue, Tracey Emin discusses being married to a rock, and novelist Ottessa Moshfegh pops round to Whoopi Goldberg’s house for a chat. Which must have been fun.
