Not to be confused with Sam Levinson’s hit series, Euphoria (no matter how we love it) our November Euphoric issue is one big dopamine hit. Anything but serious, we explored all the aspects of elation, delight, glee and ecstasy. An all you can eat attitude, complete with novelty prints and watermelon energy, this issue is a manifestation of the kind of summer we all want and desperately need. It was only fitting then, that our cover star, Ajak Deng, was the image of euphoria personified. Experience her unbridled elation and joy here, with your first look at the Euphoric issue cover story.
