Iris van Herpen for 'A Magazine Curated By'
Following on from a standout Autumn/Winter 14 presentation in Paris recently, Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen has ventured into magazine curation, with a Belgian fashion and culture title.
Van Herpen took the reigns of the creative content for the 13th issue of A Magazine Curated By, choosing a cover, imagery and articles that reflect her interests and aesthetic.
"Inspiration is a matter of sensitivity," she explains, "It is the ability to collect from the past, present and future as they shift past us simultaneously."
She goes on to say "In this issue of A Magazine I want to affirm the importance of alliance and fraternisation, to transgress the experiential boundaries of those versatile relationships that are the catalysts for true inspiration."
For each edition, the magazine asks an international fashion designer, group or house to take over the pages and inject their personal style and tastes – past curators have included Maison Martin Margiela, Yohji Yamamoto and Riccardo Tisci.
Each curator choses a set of contributors and Van Herpen's selection for the Spring Summer 2014 issue included Karl Lagerfeld, Nick Knight and Tilda Swinton.
A Magazine Curated By Iris van Herpen is currently on sale worldwide.
