A Publisher presents a limited-edition reprint of A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela (2004). Nearly two decades after its original release, this edition acknowledges the seasonless, timeless nature of A Magazine.
A collectible object in the realm of printed matter, it is a testament to the ongoing relevance of the founding ideals of the Maison Martin Margiela: from the deconstruction of garment-making and the disruption of classical ideals in photography, to such phenomena as street casting, unconventional beauty, subversive communication, and a Dadaist approach to the very concept of fashion and object design.
The 2021 reprint is an identical reprint of the original magazine with matched paper stock and cover treatments, with all original content preserved from cover to cover. The back cover features a short descriptive blurb by the current editorial team.
Selected contributors include: Åbäke, Kanako B. Koga, Bless, Mark Borthwick, Roxane Danset, Kristina De Coninck, Anders Edström, Marina Faust, Inge Grognard, Jacques Habbah, Jonathan Hallam, Katerina Jebb, Tatsuya Kitayama, Ali Mahdavi, Laurent Mercier, Lutz Huelle, Sébastien Meunier, Dorothee Perret, Ola Rindal, Violeta Sanchez, Patrick Scallon, Nigel Scott, Ronald Stoops, Kyoichi Tsuzuki, Bob Verhelst.
A Magazine Curated By is a Belgian fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue.
Since 2001, A Magazine invites a guest curator – an international fashion designer, group or house – to develop innovative, personalised content to express their aesthetic and cultural values in a unique, collectible document.
Each issue celebrates this designer’s ethos: their people, their passion, their stories, emotions, fascinations, spontaneity and authenticity.
Every A Magazine Curated By is a new story waiting to be told.
