Acne Paper / 19

€ 55,00Prezzo

The new issue of Acne Paper serenades the night. A source of profound inspiration that has held sway over the human imagination since ancient times, the nocturnal realm is a call to imagination for a global assembly of artists, photographers, writers, filmmakers, musicians, designers, and stylists, both past and present, culminating in an issue that celebrates the wonders of the night. The cover image sets the tone: photographed by Jordan Hemingway and styled by Emman Debattista, it features the model Jade Hsu emerging from the shadows in spine-tinglingly expressive haute couture dress. Throughout the issue, the nocturnal refrain has ignited dazzling work that explores creative dreaming and moonlit freedom. Highlights include fashion stories by Casper Sejersen and Sophia Kossada, Jet Swan and Katy England, Luis Alberto Rodriguez and Jacob K, Erika Kamano and Léopold Duchemin, Kristina Nagel and Beat Bolliger, Thibaut Grevet and Ola Ebiti, Rafael Pavarotti and George Krakowiak, as well as Leslie Zhang and Audrey Hu. Paolo Roversi and Robbie Spencer have paid homage to the misty lure of moonlight, while Campbell Addy and Ibrahim Kamara offer up a surrealist, theatrical spread.




Acne Paper was first launched as a biannual magazine that had a brief but remarkable life (2005 – 2014). Fashion spreads were just one element in an editorial mix that focused on culture in the broadest sense, with a keen eye on how the past informs the present. Narrated by a timeless theme explored through photography, art, literature and creative writing, Acne Paper published the work of top level contributors from different generations and was admired for its elegant art direction and high production values.


Published by Acne Studios and edited by Thomas Persson, Acne Paper was never a brand magazine in the conventional style. While the fashion stories featured clothes from multiple brands, the editorial topics ranged from 15th century tapestry to LGBTQ culture, from master painting to street photography, from theatre to sculpture, from dance to meditation.


Following the launch of the Acne Paper Book in June 2021, Acne Paper returned in 2021, reimagined with a new design direction: expanding to 500 pages, a revised format and higher production values. Noteworthy for both its design and interdisciplinary editorial approach where the past informs the present, Acne Paper continues to focus on culture in the broadest sense, exploring an eclectic variety of subjects through photography, fashion, art, literature.
