As The Nation Embraces A Newfound Energy For Spring; Modern Luxury Launches Next Wave Issue With Top-Ranked Golfer Dustin Johnson  As Cover Star Logo

The latest issue from Modern Luxury highlights the innovators who are shaking things up from coast to coast; Issue also uncovers innovative ways readers can create new adventures for themselves as the weather heats up

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 22 - Today the editors of Modern Luxury Media, the nation's largest luxury media company, are pleased to debut The Next Wave Issue for April.

As the warmer months approach and the pandemic begins to subside, many are predicting another roaring twenties to descend in many high populated cities. To mark this next chapter, Modern Luxury is launching The Next Wave Issue, from forward-thinking fashion to virtual cooking classes and exciting escapes, this issue will inspire readers to embrace change, discover something new and explore the path less traveled.

Our cover star this month has been able to stay at the top of his golf game with a maturity and focus that he carefully cultivated during the pandemic months. Dustin Johnson has become a household name as a world-rank golfer and all-star athlete. Modern Luxury EVP of Editorial Phebe Wahl had the opportunity to interview Johnson for The Next Wave Issue and discuss the keys to his success. While raw talent, a supportive family and perseverance are clearly part of the secret sauce to Johnson's singular success—it is his intense focus and ability to avoid distractions that truly sets him apart. No doubt, this winning formula is likely to result in an enduring reign at the top.

In addition to highlighting Johnson, Modern Luxury’s editors put together a one of a kind list of top innovators in “Tidal Shift” who are taking the nation by storm across different categories such as media, fashion and jewelry. This includes Marie Kouadio Amouzame, founder of Eadem who has created a beauty and lifestyle community for people of color.

“It might sound counterintuitive, but the pandemic has sparked a renewed sense of adventure for many of us. I think we are all craving adventure and ways to disrupt our daily routines as well,” said Phebe Wahl, EVP of Editorial at Modern Luxury. “That’s why it was so important that we packed the Next Wave Issue with content that inspires change and positive motivation as we approach a new season.”

Within the issue, readers can learn about NYC's own Jason Wu and about the latest expansion of his beauty brand. The April Next Wave Issue is available now to subscribers. Visit Manhattan magazine to read The Next Wave feature and subscribe to the digital edition to explore more stories.
