Weird flex, but OK. King Kong Magazine has a menswear counterpart appropriately enough called, wait for it, King Kong Garçon. To celebrate the inaugural issue the title has released a handful of covers with such rocking luminaries as Diplo and Marilyn Manson. Included amongst the the lot is Next’s own Tay Landau photographed by American great Jack Pierson. The cover is an obvious tribute to glam and its attendant energy. To that end, Tay dons a pair of skin tight vinyl trousers by Balmain, which he wears shirtless save a chain by Alexander McQueen. Clutching tightly a vintage microphone, Tay could not possibly be any more compelling than he already is. If this cover is any indication, King Kong Garçon will be a smash hit.
