The latest issue of Moon puts feminism first with a host of editorials that both celebrates women in action and explores their creative lives.
With its otherworldly feel and transcendent editorials, Moon magazine (founded by Verity Pemberton) has slowly been garnering a cult following since it launched a few years ago. For the fifth issue, Moon takes readers inside the fast and furious world of dirt biking, offering a unique juxtaposition between the fierce energy of life on the track and refined style: it’s fashion at full throttle.
This isn’t the first time that dirt bike rider Edie Ashley has made a foray into fashion, she also fronted a campaign for Edie Campbell and Christabel MacGreevy’s brand ‘Itchy, Scratchy Patchy’. There’s also interviews with the likes of Maryam Nassir Zadeh, artist Lewis Chamberlain, fashion archivist Olivier Châtenet and jeweller David Thomas.

That Verity puts the magazine together in her spare time reflects the extensive zine and magazine revival that London is currently experiencing. Where print was once declared dead, now – like records and books – magazines are enjoying fresh attention.
