DOESN’T EXIST [issue one / volume two]
A magazine for lovers of fashion, cinema and art.
A publication that merges cinema elements with a fashion landscape, which are translated into intricate fashion stories, pictorial written pieces, interviews and filmic illustrations.
An original film script, written for each edition, underlies every fashion editorial. This issue contains the second part of a trilogy, where life/death and love/hate are intertwined in a dreamlike shape, inspired by the works of David Lynch, Federico Fellini, Andrei Tarkovsky, Michelangelo Antonioni and others.
Issue one is a non-official tribute to Rei Kawakubo and her astonishing work for Comme des Garçons. It includes a fashion story stylized with archive pieces from her Paris debut; the minimal, groundbreaking collections from the 80’s and 90’s.
