Daniel Williams Wears Fendi for the First Cover of 10 Men Issue 53 – Read The Editor’s Letter
Introducing the brand new issue of 10 Men – NO PLACE, LIKE, HOME. They say home is where the heart is, and after a year of being trapped in our humble abodes, Issue 53 of 10 Men is all about the places which bring us peace and harmony – as told by our contributors. The first of three covers stars Daniel Williams in Fendi, as styled by Ola Ebiti and photographed by Christina Ebenezer in Lagos, Nigeria. Want to know what’s inside? Let our Editrix-in-Chief, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, tell you with her Editor’s letter:
“After arriving home after months of illness and rehab, I have never been as euphoric as when I stepped across my own threshold and saw a huge “welcome home” banner that my boys had hung up for me. I sobbed while holding them tight in my arms and felt ever thankful that I could experience this moment with them. It’s funny how much we take for granted. We only realise how much we miss home when we can’t be there any longer and how much peace it brings to be surrounded by the things we love. Our books, our photographs lining the walls, bringing back all the treasured memories, the smells we associate with home, too: there are so many things we experience daily but never fully register or appreciate.
I never quite understood how much I would miss all the minute details until I wasn’t able to experience them any longer. So in this issue we celebrate this idea of home with a new interiors section, Inside 10. It gives us our very own through-the-key-hole moments. Rick Owens photographed his home in Concordia sulla Secchia, Italy, which he describes as his most perfected interior. We also asked Mr Armani to take a picture of his favourite view and tasked eight designers to show us their favourite things in their homes and studios.
There really is no place like home, and the fashion in this issue is also a discussion of that theme. Our contributors expressed this, celebrating the worlds that are so special to them. Home is a place filled with the people we love. It’s the people we share it with that make it all the more treasured and special.
So, like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, sometimes you realise that even though you have travelled far and wide, the truth is there really is no place like home. If only it was always as simple as clicking your ruby slippers together to find yourself crossing that threshold.”
