Introducing The FADER’s 2014 Fall Fashion Issue: Nicki Minaj and Kindness

Nicki Minaj and Kindness cover our annual Fall Fashion issue.



For our 2014 Fall Fashion issue, which you can order here, we embraced style and substance, choosing to tell stories about artists that had lots of both. We've been releasing and teasing features from it over the last couple weeks, and today all three are available to read online, including both cover stories: New York journalist Carrie Battan jetted to Los Angeles for an emotional cover-story interview with Earth's best rapper, Nicki Minaj, and writer Lisa Blanning hung in the London world of Kindness, a fringe-pop songwriter who's building the community he's always wanted. Then, for our featured profile on Porter Robinson, Duncan Cooper spent two days in the bottle-service delirium of Vegas and spoke with the post-EDM wunderkind about making music that's more than a spectacle. While we're definitely sad to see summer fade, fall looks pretty good from here.
