Replica - Issue 10 - Spring 2022
Wigs are fun! Have you ever put a bright red wig on? You will smile! Lakeith Stanfield say on the Replica Man Issue 10 Interview. Lakeith protean nature makes itself beyond his career on screen, too. Like his Atlanta co-star Donald Glover, LaKeith is an accomplished musician, re- leasing music under the alias HTIEKAL (his name spelled backwards) – he’s currently working on his debut album, Self Control. He’s also a bona fide fashion pin-up, one of his most notable looks being the svelte 70s-inflected tuxedo jumpsuit he wore to the Oscars – a custom piece from Saint Laurent Paris, whose AW21 campaign he was the face of, and whose SS22 menswear collection he wears here in these images, shot by Justin French on a snowy day in Atlanta.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a decade since Mykki Blanco burst onto the music scene with their debut EP Mykki Blanco & the Mutant Angels – a brash, heady mix of distorted guitars, bone-shaking drums, and maniacal screams that boldly announced the artist’s presence. It was, in a word, unapologetic.
What else to expect? Asked Dominc Cadogan Replica Man writer? A natural foray into the world of television and film – “I always thought I would end up there,” they joke – and (there’s more) a novel too. “It’s one of my other huge goals for this year. I’m attempting my first substantial piece – a collection of short stories that are semi-autobiographical but definitely amplified in a fictional way"
