NOTION 054 – THE PRINT X DIGITAL ISSUE
After the major-glamour of our September Fashion Issue, we’ve decided to fulfil an editorial dream with this issue. We’re print fetishists at Notion (we wouldn’t make a magazine if we weren’t), and yet we spend our lives online: but how would our favourite online talents deal with working within the confines of a print space? What they’ve come back with has made for a thought-provoking and fascinating exploration of the media in 2011. As ever, our gorgeous fashion editorial, musical smorgasbord (including our beautiful coverstar Katy B) and cultural snippets complete issue 054.
With her star in the ascendant throughout 2011, Notion talks exclusively to the first lady of the UK’s underground scene on whether she’s accomplished her mission, the challenges of a gruelling tour, and what 2012 holds in store for her meteoric career.

We’ve also been talking to singer of the moment Lana del Rey, Berlin electronica producer PlanningtoRock, the delightfully bonkers French chanteuse Soko and designer Claire Barrow, as well as bands Neon Indian and The Field.
