A Magazine #6 : Curated by Veronique Branquinho
it also combines the celebration of her 10 year anniversary with various memorable images from past collections. there are some great contributions too! david lynch is mentioned(whom she's always been inspired by),tim burton and her former boyfriend raf simons.

Quote:
WE HAVE THE PLEASURE TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF THE NEXT ISSUE OF A MAGAZINE .
AFTER MARTIN MARGIELA, YOHJI YAMAMOTO, HAIDER ACKERMANN, UNDERCOVER’S
JUN TAKAHASHI, MARTINE SITBON, THE NEXT CURATOR IS VERONIQUE BRANQUINHO.

In the late 1990s, Veronique Branquinho took the international fashion scene by storm with a very personal take on femininity and elegance, her signature strongly influenced by the complexity of the female character. Underpinned by subtle references to film, music and art, her fashion offers a unique sensitivity.

This year Veronique celebrates the 10th anniversary of her label. A MAGAZINE #6 has turned out to be a festive edition, an intimate anniversary present from the designer to you. Veronique insisted upon compiling a warm and very personal issue, a genuine reflection of her world. Not a glossy fashion publication but a magazine that allows us, for the first time, to take a glimpse into her life. She does this in her very own way: affectionate, playful, seductive, but never too explicit, always leaving room for open endings.

Quote:
The magazine was to evoke a walk in the woods at night, where at every turn the winding forest trails divert you from your actual destination whilst darkness and the rising mist retain the mystery, a recurring theme in her oeuvre. The girls who inhabit the woods, though they appear to be hunted game, are somehow haunted and bewitched, innocent and severe at the same time. Veronique’s penchant for the seemingly ordinary – everyday situations that unexpectedly take a bizarre twist – explains the discrete presence of David Lynch within these pages: quotes from his films haunt the different chapters.

In A MAGAZINE #6 Veronique stays faithful to the images that have dominated her work since the start, giving this issue a clear Branquinho signature. She likes what she describes as frozen images, such as the opening shot of As Black as Midnight on a Moonless Night: Snow White's blood-red apple pierced with a rusty nail. Or the naked girl on the cliffs somewhere in the north of France, her face hidden behind a mask of owl feathers. She wears a transparent cape that no longer conceals as capes normally do, the image therefore gaining a paradoxical erotic twist. These images are invariably both fragile and cruel. They suggest beauty with a dark undercurrent.
This duality is a constant in Veronique’s world: attracting and rejecting, playing and pushing away again. Things are never what they seem. The smoke, to be found in several images, sometimes as a kind of mist or haze, then again as cigarette smoke partially hiding a woman's face, seduces and shrouds and, above all, never telling the whole story.

But Veronique wanted to show us her fondness for the playful and the light-hearted as well. She often mentions how much she likes putting on records for friends and playing board games. It almost seemed like a game to hide references and allusions within the images and words of this magazine, which give it its subtle layers.

I’m pleased to introduce you to Veronique’s friends and family, her work and team, her favourite music, her home and the people who have been a lasting inspiration over the past ten years. A MAGAZINE #6 is an issue to read on a cold winter evening, comfortably seated in front of the open fire, in the company of close friends, with a good bottle of wine and some favourite French songs playing in the background…

thanks scott!. I love the cover.. very representative of her aesthetic.. and the content as always sounds excellent (especially the twin peaks quotes, ha!), wish we'd get scans of this some time, since it's available such a few countries.

well,you can order through the web site but i'm not sure how limited their volume is or would be. however,considering that the publishers and the primary distributors are right there in antwerpen,they should have enough. but it isn't available just yet.

berlin,i found out afterward,gerdi left antwerp and is teaching a course at arnhem. and i don't know where i've been either because apparently this happened in 2005,when she left.

I'd love a subscription to this magazine... always such impressive contributors!

Purchasing from modenatie will probably be $$$, of course...
