Doesn't exist is a British fashion magazine seen through the eyes of cinema. It is an experimental magazine, both in the approach to contents and graphic layout, and in the contents themselves. In the variegated and difficult world of fashion magazines, he tries to find a new way to talk to the fashion public, used to having to untangle hundreds of titles and projects that are often more useful for advertising than for the content itself.
Doesn't exist focuses on this very sui generis approach and offers us imagined interviews that become film dialogues, uses illustrations to describe the collections and creates photographic projects worthy of a film set to show us the collections.
ISSUE 1 - A non-official triute to Rei Kawakubo
Issue 1 of Doesn't exist magazine is an unofficial tribute to Rei Kawakubo, the Japanese column of the fashion world, who gave a view to the Comme des Garcones brand.
The magazine retraces his fashion shows, his clothes and the essence of his person through illustrations and photographs with a quasi-cinematographic sequence adapted by the authors themselves. Inside we also find real dialogues with the stylist and imagined film sequences that trace her history.
The use of photography and its reworking is remarkable, intimate and coherent in the various projects that make up the volume. The dark tones and the unsharp images, the alternating use of coated papers and the typographic choice, are a stimulating mirror of the Kawakubo personality.
