An A Magazine Curated By special print project in partnership with Acne Studios, conceived as a visual essay by acclaimed French photographer Philippe Chancel revealing the inner workings of Floragatan 13, the former Czech embassy in Stockholm, Sweden transformed into a fashion atelier and corporate office.
A Magazine Curated By is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue. We invite a guest curator – an international fashion designer, group or house – to develop innovative, personalised 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.
N°A featuring Dirk Van Saene was the first A Magazine, initiated by Walter Van Beirendonck and art directed by Paul Boudens for the 2001 Landed Geland fashion festival in Antwerp. It was followed by N°B, N°C, N°D and N°E Magazines before A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela was released in 2004. Conceived as Belgium’s first fashion magazine and now with offices in Paris, A Magazine Curated By has gained international acclaim for its intimate perspective into the minds of the most inspiring fashion designers working today.
