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
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
In this issue:
A Magazine Curated By is delighted to announce that issue N°19 has been curated by
Kim Jones for an international release on May 29th, 2019. Based between London and
Paris, the British fashion designer was named men’s creative director at Dior in March
2018, after seven years designing menswear at Louis Vuitton. Jones is known for his
adventurous travelling spirit and a penchant for collecting rare and precious objects and
vintage fashion, all of which informs his designs that marry futurism with old-world
techniques and materials.
Kim Jones’ approach to A Magazine Curated By N°19 takes the form of an alphabet,
introducing his eclectic group of friends and exploring his worldly passions, with
subjects ranging from ‘A’ for Naomi Campbell’s ‘Africa’ through ‘P’ for punk, all the
way to ‘Z’ for Amanda Lear’s ‘Zero’ (“the zero you will get if you don’t learn my
alphabet”). The designer’s alphabet is represented in 26 artist ‘letter’ pages featuring
the works of friends and collaborators, from contemporary artists such as KAWS,
Hajime Sorayama, Takashi Murakami, Raymond Pettibon and Peter Doig, as well as
Dior house milliner Stephen Jones, R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, and Louis Vuitton men’s
creative director Virgil Abloh. Each letter is followed by an adjoining subject matter,
ranging from essays and archive image portfolios to interviews, illustrations, poetry,
postcards, still-life photography, music playlists and portraiture. Close friends and
famous heroes unite in this dense patchwork of anthropological and geographical
references that reveal many facets of Jones’ curious mind.
A Magazine Curated by Kim Jones features two covers featuring models Ludwig
Wilsdorff and Sakua Kambong photographed by David Vasiljevic under the creative
direction of Dior Make up creative director Peter Philips. The 26 artist letters are also
compiled on a detachable sticker page inside the magazine. The issue premieres a
new Eco Foil metallic ink technique on the cover and interior pages.
