A MAGAZINE n.25: Curated by SACAI


The 25th issue of A Magazine Curated By has been guest edited by Chitose Abe of sacai.

As the first Japanese woman to curate an issue, Abe has called upon her inner circle of friends, family and artistic collaborators to contribute cultural and creative content across the 200 page magazine.

Proposing a radical ultramarine blue cover with both English and Japanese text, A Magazine Curated By Sacai explores the world of community and high concept behind sacai, from an international series of #sacaiTHEpeople portraits from Tokyo to LA, to commissioned projects by photographers, chefs, industrial designers, architects, artists, writers and business analysts alike.

From the material concerns of minimalist architecture and upcycled industrial design to the intangible possibilities of CGI products and A.I. fashion reporting, Abe has channelled sacai’s collaborative spirit into a profoundly contemporary document that approaches her brand pillars of hybridity and ‘stability and betrayal’ in myriad ways.
