The CASH issue looks at the very thing we seem to spend much of our time thinking about: money. As economists announce we have officially come out of recession, PHOENIX provides an antidote to the dour frugality of recent years with a much-needed dose of 80s glamour, opulent diamonds, and high-end fashion.
The issue also looks at what state the culture sector has been left in – what the art market is buying, whether literature is doomed to fifty shades of mediocrity, and if there’s a winning formula for a Hollywood box office hit.
The male cover stars Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey, while the female cover stars Sports Illustrated stunner, Ariel Meredith. Both covers were shot on location in New York City, styled in sharp 80s tailoring, reinventing power dressing for the new millennium.
