NOTION 061: BRUNO MARS – OUT NOW

For the last issue of Notion this year, Notion has finally gone pop! Sure we’ve dabbled before, but the time has come to do a full exploration of where pop music is in 2012. With everyone from global megastar Bruno Mars to our favourite up-and-coming bands, Notion 061 is your essential guide to the creme de la creme of popworld. Don’t worry though, there’s still plenty of fashion! Head here to get your copy now!

BRUNO MARS: THE OTHER SIDE OF MARS
Exploring the man who would be the new King of Pop – he’s got the hat and he’s got the hits, but has he got it all? Michael Cragg meets Bruno Mars in a New York hotel, on the verge of releasing his new album Unorthodox Jukebox, a record of pop hooks that positions him as a modern entertainer in the classic tradition…

LITTLE MIX: GIRLS ON THE RUN:
the all-conquering best-thing-to-come-out-of-X-Factor-ever girl group in an incredible photoshoot in which Fashion Director Alexis Knox imagines the girls in fashion-forward takes on icons of female fun and rebellion. Bronya Francis meets the girls to show how they’re bringing the whole history of the girl group into an ubernow, hyperreal success.

MISHA B: STARGIRL
She feels like an alien, and she’s out of this world. Misha B was never going to let the dramz get her down. In a revealing chat with Kara Simsek, Misha puts x Factor behind her and gets on with the music, with a little help from Missy Elliott.

NEW GIRLS ON THE BLOCK
A portrait and interview series with some of our favourite new female artists – Foxes, Nadine Shah, Faye & Arlissa – just because.

TWELVE: AN EXPLORATION OF SCENT
The fragrance world is thought of as one of smoke and mirrors, the apogee of advertising and branding. Yet though right now we’re at the point of maximum bombardment, we want to amke the case that scent is not a seasonal afterthought: the artistry and magic of the perfume world is worth celebrating. John-Michael O’Sullivan uses a New York exhibition as the launching point of a fantastic denuding of the spin of scent, accompanied by Aaron Francis Walker’s very literal denuding photoshoot, ‘What Do You Wear in Bed?’
