This landmark issue represents the first A Magazine curated by an Italian woman, and the first to explore the decorative realm of a jewellery designer after the magazine’s longstanding relationship with prét-à-porter designers was first diverted in 2013 by the curation of British milliner Stephen Jones.
Delfina chose the abstract theme of ‘gold’, tipping an international array of artists, designers, photographers, stylists, architects, philosophers and other creative minds to interpret a myriad of aesthetic, alchemical and metaphysical representations of this precious metal and its intrinsic energy.
Contributors to this golden issue include Almine Rech, Amanda Harlech, Daniel Sannwald, Francesco Vezzoli, Jerry Stafford, Silvia Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld, Katerina Jebb, Rafael de Cardenas, Patrick Kinmonth, Luca Guadagnino, Robbie Spencer, Matthew Stone, Katie Shillingford, Shala Monroque, Stanislas Klossowski de Rola, Nico Vascellari, Marc Quinn, Olafur Eliasson & many more.
“Here I have transcribed my discoveries through time into a travelogue — a colourful cocktail of different artists and friends who I encountered along my path.”
