Around this time a year ago I was asked by Stephen Jones, who doesn’t need any extra introduction I believe, to be a part of his new project – A magazine* /Antwerp/ he was about to curate. We had lunch together somewhere on the back of Shibuya and the year past and all just came true – in the very last minute, a week before the whole issue was sent for printing.
A-magazine is finally OUT – also now available in Tokyo /Tower records, Parco e.g./ and apart my Horoscope pages with Stephen`s hats, of course, and his text it is featuring original sketches from house of Dior from 40s & 50s, illustration by John Galliano, Celia Birtwell`s quill nails, correspondence of Rei Kawakubo or Thierry Mugler, and other amazing contributors and invited guests as Nick Knight, Dita Von Teese, Zaha Hadid, Ron Arad, Hamish Bowles, Kim Jones, Marc Jacobs, Julie Verhoven and more and more and more…
All I just need to say is that I am really honoured /and being lucky/ to know Stephen personally and to be part of this project!!! For all the “goodies” please check the nearest bookstore – the good one though.
*A Magazine Curated By – is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue; previous curators including Jun Takashi /Undercover/, Maison Martin Margiela, Ricardo Tisci, Rodarte to name few.http://www.amagazinecuratedby.com/
