The Spring/ Summer 2011 Issue of Arena Homme Plus marks the inauguration of Max Pearmain as editor and chief, and Ashley Heath as editorial director. Previously severing as POP magazine menswear editor Max Pearmain felt the men’s fashion magazine world has become staid and predictable stating “It was actually more inspiring in many way fifteen years ago when there was just L’Uomo, Vogue Homme and Arena Homme Plus… We wanted to inject some surprise and some passion and some playfulness back into this world.” Pearmain himself styled Stephen Morris from New Order while Steven Klein provided the photography. This issue marks also the return to ‘special sections’ in the limited edition version of the Stephen Morris cover which provide an additional 45 pages of “hardcore” content. With fashion contribution from the likes of Arena Homme veterans David Sims, and Steven Klein, while Collier Schorr, Ari Marcopoulos, and Wolfgang Tillmans see themselves rounding out the contributors list, this issue may be as robust of a printed publication we have seen in recently. This issue will hit newsstands April 11 in the UK and April 18th for the rest of the world. It will also be available online.
