A MAGAZINE is a biannual publication, exploring the creative sphere of a selected designer in each issue. We invite a guest curator- an international fashion designer, group or house- to develop innovative, personalised content that expresses their aesthetic and cultural values.
Each issue celebrates this designer´s ethos: their people, their passion, their stories, emotions, fascinations, spontaneity and authenticity. As such A MAGAZINE exists as an entirely dynamic title- a cultural statement for individuality in an increasingly homogenous industry.
Centred around A MAGAZINE´s guest curator is a team of editors, with content provided by an international network of contributors and collaborators. Each of these creative relationships with an artist, photographer, musician, graphic designer etc. starts with a conversation. This artistic dialogue leads to beautiful projects, special friendships and a fusion of explosive talent to create work that transcends the ordinary.
A MAGAZINE is a unique niche product both on the conceptual and advertorial level. Alongside purely artistic content, we create hybrid promotional opportunities for collaborators, enabling the production of site-specific content that goes beyond common commercial restrictions.
In this issue:
The 25th issue has been curated by Chitose Abe of sacai, the founder and designer of the cult Japanese label.
Proposing a radical ultramarine blue cover signed in both English and Japanese, A Magazine Curated By Sacai explores the world of community and high concept behind sacai, from an international series of #sacaiTHEpeople portraits from Tokyo to LA, to commissioned projects by chefs, industrial designers, architects, artists, writers and business analysts. From the material concerns of minimalist architecture and up-cycled industrial design to the intangible possibilities of CGI products and A.I. fashion reporting, Abe has channelled sacai’s collaborative spirit into a profoundly contemporary document that approaches her brand pillars of hybridity and ‘stability and betrayal’ in myriad ways.
