Right now all eyes are glued on the United States of America as the country focuses on electing their next president in an ideological struggle scrutinised by the world’s media. Naturally there’s great temptation here to rant about the evil we perceive in one of the candidates with his flyaway hairpiece… if only we could be certain he wouldn’t win! However there is one person who doesn’t seem to be affected by this feverish debate and that’s Jaden Smith, the lunar son of Will Smith, the one with the most improbably hairstyle. Totally unfazed by his 4.5 million followers on Instagram with a penchant for wearing girls’ clothes, the young actor and rapper is the perfect embodiment of the zeitgeist. Frank Gehry, on the other hand, is one of the biggest architects in the world, famous for his iconic constructions like the Bilbao Guggenheim or the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, and he is suitably surprising in his frankness in our exclusive interview. As is the tradition Numéro Homme gives a writer’s point of view alongside every fashion series. This very French way of playing with verbs offers a multiplicity of perspectives – including those of Yannick Haenel, Jean-Noël Orengo, Simon Liberati and Édouard Louis that merrily shifts the debate. These voices come together in a humble attempt to sketch a portrait of a great country that has always fascinated Europe as much as disconcerts.
