LOOKCITY: A Short Film On A Spaniard’s Love Affair With Glossy Fashion Magazines
by Robyn Yager | For some, romance is a brand new fashion magazine. Personally, I love the glossy way they feel in my hands, how they open with ease, and how kaleidoscopes of bright colour fill nearly every haute couture page. There’s just a tangible authenticity to them that digital screens can never capture (and collecting them is pretty well guaranteed to never go out of style). In this Nowness video – a love letter to the beauty and timelessness of fashion magazines from the sartorial sensibilities of the people who loyally collect them – Luis Venegas, the Spanish creative director, editor and publisher of Fanzine137, EY!Magateen, and Candy – all independent and limited edition publications – shares his immense collection. He has ammassed over 10,000 issues (!), spanning five decades from the 1960′s to the present.
