The modern magazine redefined. Print media as new media. The magazine as an experience. The magazine as a collector’s item.
I’ve described Collection magazine in all of these ways. And that was just the first issue.
Its second has this week been released, and it brings to the curated newsstand the ‘old-fashioned decadence of the printed page’, where each page has the lingering smell of ink and paper, and each can be removed for framing. It’s the magazine as art. And the art of this issue, both in the photographic and written form, revolves around ‘A Portrait of Decadence’. Totalling 12 features and 100 pages, model Andrej Pejic headlines the issue’s cover, while inside you’ll not only find Andrej’s full photo shoot but everything from an exploration of the decadence of Milan to the potential decadence of make-up.
After the break you’ll find more previews from Collection magazine’s second issue.
The second issue of Collection Magazine can be purchased online from the title’s website. Internationally it can be purchased from the likes of MagNation in Australia, Standard Bookstore in Japan, Selfridges and Harrods in the UK, Lafayette in the US, and Collette in France. It’s also available in the likes of Sweden, Italy, Germany and Canada, and the full list of stockists can be found here.
