Know your power. Voice your protest. Dance with rage. Dazed’s spring/summer issue celebrates the creatives devoted to telling their own truth, even at the risk of being divisive.
 On the covers, Anohni holds our eyes open to painful realities in the most radical departure of her career, Abbey Lee confronts her modelling past head-on in Nicolas Winding Refn’s feverish hyper horror The Neon Demon, and Grace Wales Bonner and Harley Weir journey east for a poetic meditation on masculinity in India. Also fronting the issue, Anna Ewers is moonstruck in Comme des Garçons’ empowering SS16 Blue Witches collection as lensed by Paolo Roversi, while Paul Hameline is the face of Prada’s deeply human protest for AW16 in a shoot by Willy Vanderperre.
