Here’s the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of VogueArabic for men. The cover of this issue features a picture of Pharrell Williams, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, producer, artist, author, restaurant and hotelier, humanitarian, and most recently the founder of the beauty brand, who has over 13 million followers on Instagram. Williams visited the UAE in March 2022 to participate in the Richard Mille Art Prize, where he presented Bahraini-American artist Nasser Al Zayani with a $50,000 prize. During his time here, the artist topped the cover of this season’s issue, with a picture taken by Miss Al-Marabat at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. About this experience, the cover star says: “It’s nice to be able to share in a wonderful moment for another human being. Everything the country aspires to and intends to do is in this building.”

The Saudi Cup. Vogue Man Arabia, Spring/Summer 2022

This issue also highlights the Saudi Cup, which is the world’s most expensive horse race with prizes totaling $31.5 million – a key element in showcasing the kingdom’s cultural and sporting richness. The third edition of the Saudi Cup was held this year under the chairmanship of His Royal Highness Prince Bandar bin Khalid Al-Faisal, with the participation of 21 countries from 5 continents. His Royal Highness Prince Bandar said: “Horse racing is a noble sport, the sport of kings, so to speak. In addition to being linked to lifestyle, it excites horse lovers who feel a connection with it and admire its beauty.” Prince’s passion for horses began in his youth. He states: “My earliest memories of horse riding go back to the late seventies. My father was racing horses in Abha; we were actively involved in horse racing at the time.”

Also in this issue, we meet Bassem Youssef, the Egyptian-born cardiac surgeon turned comedian who is always striving to improve people’s lives. And this month he opens his heart to talk about his change of profession, and his opinion of society’s tendency to stereotype professions. In this exciting dialogue, he says, “We love to walk the path that society approves of. Throughout my life I have followed the established rules of what it means to be successful. I was motivated to change people’s lives, launch an initiative to improve their health, and create entertainment content without pressure or preaching.”

Moreover, this month we will get to know Sir Muhammad Farah as we did not know him before; Behind the records he’s broken, the gold medals he’s won, his ‘Mobut’ robot and the knighthood, he harbors a deep sadness – he’s left his twin brother back home. As the two brothers reunite for a new documentary, the British Somali hero talks about grief and success. He states: “I thought at times that I would never see him again. I will never forget that moment when I flew to Djibouti and saw him. We lived, and we still live, two different lives. But we still have the same bond.”
