Creative Director of Dior Men’s Kim Jones is the latest to oversee the curation and edit of A Magazine Curated By. In its 19th issue, Kim Jones spotlights regular collaborators Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and enlists a number of friends and artists to rework the publication.
Kim Jones’ approach to A Magazine Curated By 19 was inspired by the alphabet. The list begins with “A’” for Naomi Campbell’s “Africa” and finishes with “Z” for Amanda Lear’s “Zero,” in which the artists spotlighted compose multi-disciplined letters surrounding the subject they are discussing.
One of the most notable section from A Magazine Curated By Kim Jones is the letter “T,” in which photography from Dan Tobin Smith highlights pieces from today’s “Toys Story.” As seen above, pieces captured include the Supreme “Alphabet Vase,” the $35,000 USD aluminum Dior saddle bag, Pinnochio by KAWS and an original pair of 1985 Air Jordan OG “Chicago’s.”
The magazine also features Dior collaborators KAWS, Hajime Sorayama and Raymond Pettibon who join an array of other artists such as Virgil Abloh and Takashi Murakami, with each addressing a subject matter associated with their letter. Pieces range from essays and archive image portfolios to interviews, illustrations, poetry, postcards, still-life photography, music playlists and portraiture.
A Magazine Curated By Kim Jones features photography by David Vasiljevic under the creative direction of Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup. With 248 pages which exploring themes including punk, queer, nudes and toys, the magazine will release online and in Europe on May 30 for £20 GBP (approx. $25 USD).
