Icon, the Mondadori Group’s men’s fashion and lifestyle brand, launches its “Let me dream” issue, dedicated to the need for and courage to keep on dreaming.
The magazine, edited by Andrea Tenerani, has chosen four stars to be on the cover of this special issue: four stories from the world of sport, cinema and fashion, which Icon wants to use to remind its readers to never stop pursuing their dreams.
It starts withMilanese footballer, Sandro Tonali, who achieved his childhood dreams: he wanted to be a footballer, play in Serie A, wear theMilan jersey and win the championship. “The next goal is to cement what we did last year, which is the most difficult thing: we all have to keep focused on our dream,” he shared in an exclusive interview with Icon.
Actor Paul Wesley, who played the young Captain Kirk in the series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds last year, has become one of the most beloved faces on the small screen thanks to the global success of The Vampire Diaries Paul also fulfilled his dream of becoming a director.
The stars of the issue’s other two cover stories, Oleg Zagorodnii and Jon Kortajarena, are two supermodels (the former Ukrainian, the latter Spanish) who, thanks to their talent and determination, have been able to achieve their dream of becoming actors.
Among the stories in the issue is that of Italian Umberto Guidoni, the first European to board the International Space Station, who tells Icon how his dream of being an astronaut as a child came true.
The theme of dreams also acts as the common thread in the Destination Future section, where readers will find names like Ester Viola and Saturnino.
The “Let me dream” issue – whose contents will also be expanded upon and gone into in depth on Icon’s website and on the brand’s social media channels – is also a place for fashion, which has always been at the heart of the Icon story, with an exclusive feature, along with an interview with the young Milanese actor, Matteo Oscar Giuggioli.
Fashion will be celebrated with a private event, created in collaboration with Fay, in which a special feature in this issue is dedicated. An exclusive evening that will take place in Rome on 27 October, during which the new issue of Icon will be presented, with special guest actor Paul Wesley, the face of one of the covers of “Let me dream”.
