Stars of the new Scream reboot, Melissa Barrera and Jasmin Savoy Brown are in conversation as they film the latest instalment of the cult horror film in Canada: Barrera is soon to take on the titular role in Benjamin Millepied’s upcoming adaptation of the classic opera, Carmen.

London-based designer Chet Lo brings with him a vision of tactile beauty so unique, so illustrious, and so full of danger. As he readies his latest collection, Lo takes us through his neon-spiked design process: “I started looking at scientific names of jellyfish and envisioning this housewife in the year 3000.”

In this issue, Heroine spotlights Maximilian Davis’ ethereal FW22 collection (the designer has recently been announced as creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo) as he prepares his debut offering for the Italian fashion giant.

Sunflower Bean frontwoman Julia Cumming encourages us to dance out our anger, soundtracked by the NYC band’s acclaimed new record, Headful of Sugar. “Why not make a record that makes you want to dance? Why not make a record that makes you want to scream?”

Rain Spencer’s breakthrough role in Good Girl Jane was a seminal moment for the rising actor, and also the film’s director Sarah Elizabeth Mintz; the story is framed around her own adolescent struggles. In conversation, these two burgeoning talents find inspiration in each other’s success.

Plus, legendary photographer Ari Marcopoulos shares his latest instalment of CHAOS, a unique zine collaboration only found in the pages of HEROINE.

Samuel Stephenson and Keeley Dawson document the Alexander McQueen FW22 collection, Josh Hight creates glistening Man Ray-inspired diamond portraits, Laura Marie Cieplik and Erik Raynal capture the boundary-blurring sensibility of MM6 Maison Margiela, and Fabien Montique and Laetitia Paul showcase the defining looks of SS23 in AMAZING, our regular look at the best looks from the shows.

Filling an aching void in the women's wear market, Heroine speaks directly to the soul of young, powerful and driven women from 25 to 45 who know what they want from life and have the means to achieve it. They don't want to be patronized by glossies, pigeon-holed by niche magazines, or alienated by overly highbrow bi-annuals. They yearn for something fresh and current something deserving of their time, and that they feel genuinely reflects their outlook and is empowering, not stereotypical. Interviews with the world's leading actresses, fashion designers, artists, musicians and intellectuals sit alongside spectacularly beautiful fashion stories.
