The Style Council
Start as you mean to go on…

Here it is! The new issue, out just in time for Christmas.

When you’ve got the likes of Max Wood, Tommy Dugan, Stefan Lantschner, Dakota Roche and Alex Boyd in the issue, and an added white boarder on the cover, you’re looking at extra style points.

Once again it seems people have been trying to escape the UK winter, but heading to warmer climates. VANS took various members of their world team on Let it Ride to the Canary Islands, while CRC took Ben Hennon and Dan Lacey on a filming trip to Malaga, and the newly formed Macneil UK team took care of things out in Madrid. We also have an in-depth look into the making of the long awaited Empire video ‘Bad Idea’, which has taken a cool 4 years so far to produce.
