Dior and A Magazine Curated By this week launch the new N°19 issue curated by none other than Kim Jones. The magazine features two covers highlighting models Ludwig Wilsdorff and Sakua Kambong, photographed by David Vasiljevic under the creative direction of Peter Philips, who is the Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup. The issue showcases a brand new EcoFoil metallic ink technique on the cover as well as inside.
As Kim Jones possesses an affinity for adventurous travel and collecting rare objects, Dior’s Men’s Artistic Director chose to form his own alphabet for the N°19 issue, spotlighting people and things that are near and dear to him. For example, we see “A” for Naomi Campbell’s “Africa,” “P” for “Punk,” and “Z” for Amanda Lear’s “Zero,” just to name a few.
The alphabet is further detailed via 26 artist letter pages with works from Jones’ friends and collaborators such as Takashi Murakami, KAWS, Hajime Sorayama, R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, and Virgil Abloh, among others. Each letter is described using accompanying subject matter ranging from essays and archive image portfolios to interviews, illustrations, poetry, postcards, still-life photography, music playlists, and portraiture.
Available in more than 30 countries at select retailers, you can also purchase a copy of the Kim Jones-curated A Magazine Curated By N°19 issue online.
