For over 10 years we have travelled the globe
and had uncountable amazing experiences
and met some pretty remarkable people,
and this season was no exception. On our
journey, that took us to Kyoto, we tried
poisonous food, met a real samurai, and
found some of the best knives in the world.
Read all about it in our latest magazine.
The making of our magazine, has always
been based upon our travels, which we do
in our own special way. We travel alone,
with just a bunch of clothes, and our photographer,
Tobias Regell. No make up or
professional models are ever involved. Our
aim is to find the true spirit of every destination
we go to, which this time was Kyoto
city in in the Kansai region of Japan.
So, why Kyoto? Well, this was a “back to our
roots” kind of journey. Our original inspiration
when we first launched the brand was
Japan as we are inspired by both Japanese
aesthetics and their sense of simplicity. The
printed magazine itself is a tribute to the
artistry and dedication to details that you
find in Japan.
The stories in this magazine ranges from
the venomous fish Fugu and the chef
preparing it, to the meeting we had with a
traditional woodcut printer, as well as our
encounter with a Kobe beef chef, some of
the world's finest knives, and our meeting
with an actual samurai. Naturally we also
had our street casted models presenting
this years fall collection. The last 24 pages
of the magazine contain a look book with
the essential looks for this season.
We choose our material carefully, and use
four different types of paper for the making
of the magazine to get that handcrafted
sensation. The cover was partially printed
with a UV-coating on our logo-dot as well as
on the Japanese signs for KYOTO.
Every magazine contains 4 different
kinds of paper, some of which are
glued by hand, and every magazine is
then individually numbered with
a stamp. We’ve made a limited
edition of only 4000 copies.
The editorial pages with text are printed
on an especially thin paper, which we had
to manually glue into each and every copy
of the magazine. The special binding technique
we’ve used is also chosen to give the
magazine the right feel.
After binding the 150 pages together,
every magazine was numbered with a hand
stamp, from 0001 to 4000.
