The latest issues of Fantastic Man and Gentlewoman are now available at Material and they really are flying off the shelves so get there quick. The previous issues sold out pretty early on with no chance of getting more in and, remember, history does have a habit of repeating itself...

On the cover and inside the magazine is the very gentleman Mr. BRYAN FERRY photographed at home by Mr. JUERGEN TELLER. Other in-depth profiles and photo series include Mr. DAVID WALLIAMS, the comedy actor who recently married the world’s no. 1 model LARA STONE; Mr. AI WEIWEI, the artist who is about to reveal his commission for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall; Mr. FEDERICO MARCHETTI of the pioneering retail website YOOX; and Mr. STEFANO TONCHI, the New York editor who has the eyes of the fashion industry on him following his recent takeover at W magazine.
This issue is one of great innovation, including an entire FANTASTIC MAN fashion show presenting forty looks for the autumn and winter seasons.

The second issue of The Gentlewoman features in-depth interviews with photographer Inez van Lamsweerde, artist Yoko Ono, comedian Julia Davis, singer-songwriter Cathy Dennis and businesswoman Meena Pathak, as well as fantastic fashion series by renowned photographers such as Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Terry Richardson, Alasdair McLellan, Willy Vanderperre, Liz Collins, Daniel Riera, Anuschka Blommers & Niels Schumm and Benjamin Alexander Huseby.
