Shawn Mendes sports a spring-summer 2021 look from Emporio Armani with a Calvin Klein tank as he covers the latest VMAN magazine issue. The singer-songwriter connects with the publication for its winter 2020-spring 2021 issue to discuss his fourth studio album. Hitting the studio, Mendes links up with photographer Ben Hassett for a series of black and white portraits. Stylist Nicola Formichetti complements Hassett’s choice of photography with a black and white wardrobe that features brands such as Hermès.
Opening up about the next chapter for him musically, Mendes talks to Elton John. Discussing his new album, Mendes explains, “When I was able to sit and let my world stop spinning and come still, this stillness came over me, and I realized, you know, when it comes to matters of the heart, we don’t need to be experts.” Mendes continues, “I felt my heart open. I feel this place of real art. This is the first time I felt that I had art coming through me.” Read more at VMAN.com.
