A Magazine Curated By is a unique magazine concept that explores the universe of a different fashion designer invited as the guest curator of each issue. In collaboration with the magazine's editorial team, the guest curator develops innovative, personalized content to express their aesthetic and cultural values. Each issue celebrates this designer's ethos: their people, their passion, their stories, emotions, fascinations, spontaneity and authenticity. A Magazine Curated By has gained international acclaim for its intimate perspective into the minds of the most inspiring fashion designers working today. Belgium.
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.
