Taking inspiration from celebrity gossip magazines, this latest issue of Accent profiles dazzling A-listers — but these alternative idols live on the fringes of the ‘ordinary’. Their cover star, for one, is the son of the soul superstar Sade, and visible for being a trans role model.
There is astonishingly good photography, chaotic graphic design, and biting satire, all of which piece together true stories of people around the world who dare to live life on their own terms.
