'We'll take it from here...'
Playgirl is back. Featuring a 1970s-inspired typeface (the magazine was originally launched in 1973) and one heavily pregnant, nude Chloë Sevigny on the front cover. With a largely women-led team and an emphasis on storytelling (as well as nude images across the gender spectrum) this is a very 2020s take on the Playboy-anchored original.
Almost all of the content in this issue, which had been due for release in April, was created before Covid-19 took hold in the US and, save for two, new first-person essays and a poem: 'Everything else was edited to ground it in this current world.'
On the cover: Chloë Sevigny by Mario Sorrenti
