Issue 1 : The Synthesis Issue
The Synthesis Issue is spearheaded by a comprehensive cover story featuring Dior Hommes’s then Artistic Director and founder of his eponymous label, Kris Van Assche. The 200-page magazine also follows the story behind other featured designers and what the merging of high- and low-end fashion, collaborations, and the ‘bubble-up & trickle-down’ theory means to them. The theme of ‘Synthesis’ run throughout this first issue, a platform to present engaging and exclusive content that would otherwise be lost in the rapid pace of online updates. Following its focus on fashion, the magazine also includes interviews and articles on a mixture of artists, musicians, lifestyle icons and other creatives, interspersed with vivid shoots and imagery, including the likes of China-based artist, Cai Guo-Qiang; Managing Director for Vitsoe, Mark Adams; skateboarding legend, Jason Dill and more within its pages.
