The new MINI V is here

V Magazine has released its second issue of MINI V, starring Gen Z it couple Charli D’Amelio and Landon Barker. The teens are no stranger to the spotlight, with D’Amelio accumulating over 150 million followers on TikTok while Barker, son of Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, has caught the attention of the masses with his burgeoning music career. Photographer Matthew Brookes captured the intimacy between the couple, in their first-ever joint shoot for a publication. Styled by the mag’s fashion director Nicola Formichetti, the editorial features an array of Miu Miu, McQueen, Saint Laurent, Prada, and more. An accompanying questionnaire, inspired by the pondering of Marcel Proust, unearths quotes from the next-gen stars. When asked what their idea of perfect happiness was, their answers align. “Perfect happiness to me is being surrounded by the people I love every single day,” muses D’Amelio, while Barker adds, “I don’t know if perfect happiness truly exists, but if it did, it would be me creating art, surrounded by friends and family.” Read the full feature here.
