What role do today's magazine editors play?
In the anyone-can-publish age of social media, magazine editors aren't the power-wielding gatekeepers they once were.

Farmland made its own Supreme lookbook
Supreme is known for "borrowing" aesthetic motifs from other companies on the regular, and the latest target was Farmland Foods, a pork producer whose logo Supreme pulled from for its Fall 2018 collection. Now, Farmland's returning the favor by staging an editorial featuring actual farmers wearing Supreme gear — and the result is actually pretty campaign-worthy. {Fashionista inbox}
