Frank Ocean covers The Fader magazine’s fall fashion issue | Magazine Cover

Take a peek above at the cover for the forthcoming fall fashion issue of The Fader magazine, which features the Odd Future affiliated singer/songwriter Frank Ocean.
The Def Jam signed superstar in the making who features not once but twice on the biggest album of the moment, The Throne (Jay-Z + Kanye West)’s Watch The Throne and recently penned Bridget Kelly’s debut single, has had the world in a vice-grip since releasing his free album nostagia,ULTRA and will hold down the front cover of the esteemed magazine with The Rapture on the flipside.

When he was nine, Frank Ocean’s godfather subscribed him to Robb Report, a magazine for the ultra-rich. Less interested in fiduciary smarts, it’s a catalog of conspicuous consumption, highlighting tropical vacations, invaluable antiques and, as Ocean came to know, really expensive cars. Though he comes from a middle class family, he obsessively read the magazine’s classified ads, fixating on exorbitantly priced used Bentleys and Maybachs. “I would just fall in love with all their cars. That was the start.” Ocean, whowas born Christopher Breaux (and goes by Lonny to friends), downscaled his material desires, and when he was 13, began going door-to-door, detailing cars for cash. “I would bring all my supplies. Literally, it was like a movie, I had a wagon, those long red wagons, like a Radio Flyer-type wagon, and I used to buy my own soaps.”
