Esquire has been on newsstands in the United States since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first presidential term. In the intervening 85 years, the publication has expanded to include over 25 international editions. The newest addition to this Hearst menswear title is Esquire Italia, which celebrates its inaugural issue for November 2018 with a banger of a cover featuring Next’s own Diplo. Wes as he’s known was in New York this week spinning at the after party of the launch of the H&M x Moschino collection. This editorial feature shows the super producer in an editorial light, the lumens of which he handles with aplomb.
