First storming onto shelves in 2009 and sending other biannual titles flying in a cloud of mediocrity in the process, INDUSTRIE is a fashion publication that turns the lens around on an industry obsessed with its final product. Focussing not on models, shows and glossy ad campaigns but on the stylists, editors, designers, photographers and business-types who have a hand in creating them, the publication cites itself as the first about the culture of fashion, and founders Erik Torstensson and Jens Grede have made mighty sure that only the most exciting, influential and rarely-seen subjects grace its pages.
Past covers have starred Marc Jacobs dressed in drag (or rather, in pieces from super-stylist Katie Grand’s archive of Louis Vuitton), a cheeky self-portrait by photography power couple Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and a stern Haider Ackermann photographed by Juergen Teller. Issue 6, whose cover stars the new industry favourite Cara Delevingne photographed by Alasdair McLellan, takes influence as its theme, and if previous issues are anything to go by there are great things to be expected from it.
Issue six of INDUSTRIE magazine will be available from September 5.
