Overview

Residing at the forefront of cool since its inception, NYLON magazine is the authority on what is current when it comes to beauty, fashion, and music. Readers look to NYLON to learn about the newest trends and bands, as well as to see how music and fashion intertwine and influence each other. Play features the personal style of singers, bands, fans, and other innovators in today’s music universe: what they wear, who they listen to, what shows they go to, and what inspires their own music. Drawing from new interviews with dozens of popular musicians (such as Bjork, Meg White, M.I.A., Lily Allen, and Amy Winehouse), coverage from concerts and festivals around the world, and the inspiring looks of music icons past and present, Play presents music as a lifestyle, not as a pastime. Taking the style, irreverent tone, and fresh approach that NYLON is known for, Play is a must-have title for today’s music lover.
