Opening Ceremony Launching OC Annual Magazine
To keep the 10th anniversary celebration rocking, trendy international retailer Opening Ceremony announced it will release a collectible fashion and culture magazine titled OC Annual this August. Founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim stated each issue will center on a theme with the debut publication focused on the world of sports in honor of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Having already lined up renowned photographers Bruce Weber, Walter Pfeiffer, Todd Cole and Tim Barber for the issue, Lim mentioned, “As magazine fanatics, O.C. founder Humberto Leon and myself are aiming to create a collectible publication for a new generation, something beautiful and special in the vein of Benetton’s ‘Colors,’ Comme des Garçons’ ‘Six’ and Joe McKenna’s ‘Joe.’ We want to make a magazine that will appeal to kids in Nebraska as much as industry people.” Unfortunately, OC will publish only 30,000 copies of this August publication, so stay tuned for additional release information as this will surely be a piece you’ll want on your coffee table for quite some time.
