Suited Magazine Issue 1
We’re all suited for something in this life, and we all have our singular talents. “Suited,” a new independent imprint, showcases the work and lifestyles of people who have found their calling. Described as a “record of counterculture,” the magazine’s first issue features sartorial favorites like Street Etiquette, Duckie Brown and A. Sauvage. It also provides a glimpse into the creative process of artisan craftsmen like Max Poglia, and studies the visual art of people like Corine Pagny. To read “Suited” is to step into the life of another person and share their passions. We think that’s a very good thing.
Called “the world’s best type reference guide” by Steven Heller, the Taschen-published “Letter Fountain” is a creative’s dream. Inside you’ll find in-depth studies on the form and anatomy of every single letter in the alphabet as well as information on the history and metamorphosis of special characters and punctuation marks. You don’t have to be a graphic designer, typesetter or typographer to appreciate this guide, either. Thanks to the straightforward writing style and easy-to-follow voice, “Letter Fountain” also serves as the perfect beginner’s guide to typography.
Louis Vuitton tapped M/M Paris to design an ode to the creations of Nicolas Ghesquière and the photography of Juergen Teller. Published and printed in Germany by Steidl, “The Flow” features 157 fashion photographs from LV’s 2015 campaigns, collections, editorials and advertisements. If you’re looking to relax and just enjoy some beautiful photography, this is the book for you.
With a name like “Farts” and an irony-laden slogan like “let it be loud,” one might not know what to expect. However, “Farts” is everything we’ve been looking for in a printed publication. Not only does it offer a diverse and globalized point of view, it’s chock full of fashion, art and design insights and inspiration. It’s a dual-language Korean-English magazine, and you definitely don’t see many of those in the market.
