Agyness, really?? . Seems like a rather commercial move from 032c. The picture is good, and I guess they deserve exposure more than any other publication right now but still.. she's a hard to swallow character for me.. fail to get her peculiarities..
thank you, pedro!. any idea of the editorials?, I checked their site but they just mention their articles. hoping to see some Leblon in this issue as well, I love everything he does for 032c.
Besides the nude story with Agyness (a model I don't fancy either), it seems there are editorials by Viviane Sassen, David Benjamin Sherry and the usual Joe McKenna's fashion choices.
I wouldn't really have paid attention to the fact it's Agyness if it wasn't written on it It's not her worst picture by the way but stil... not what I would really expect.
What really makes me want to see more is to read there is something by Viviane Sassen inside... It's been too long since I saw an editorial by her for the last time
my thoughts precisely
and don't forget about pharell williams?! not what i consider typical 032c style.
I thought she had disappeared forever
Absolutely amazing to see her again, especially on a cover.
last time there wasn't magazine with her cover and i didn't worry about her, because I don't like her much
though cover is good
Agyness is in good shape, but in terms of visual composition, she doesn't have a very interesting body for a nude portrait, at least not in that pose. There's nothing really to engage the eye... perhaps someone with a different physique would have provided a shot with more interest, in terms of giving more angles or shapes to lead your eye around the image.
I like the 'mood' more than the pose - the messy feel of the hair.
Mode & Verzweiflung
Fashion & desperation
That could not be more fitting when it comes to my feelings for Agyness Deyn. It is a beautiful shot but I was suprised too that 032c went this direction, it was a very underground magazine for me and this is indeed a commercial move (thanks MulletProof for finding the right words). It's a nice read though if it was not so f***ing expensive.
^well they're all going commercial it seems. first purple,then self service,crash and now 032c and my other beloved in A have more commercial interests in their upcoming issues.
i am though a bit surprised because it did feel like 032c was the remaining pub unwilling to compromise. but i get it. times are tough and you have to sell especially if you don't have the mass distribution.
same here... at least it's a nice picture, i like alasdair.
Not bad at all. Actually quite nice. Thanks for posting.
I love the simplicity of the shot. Beautiful...
I don't like this cover, looks tacky
well, i can't see anything wrong about Agyness getting an edit in 032c. it's not about exloiting her 'not-so-long-ago-It' status, nor about making a sexy-booty edit to attract wide audiences (and i'm completely comfortable with the cover image not being glamazon sexy, 032c is def not about that). i believe with its signature aesthetic 032c is as far from going mainstream as Beyonce Knowles becoming underground. [even the infamous Steven Meisel feature didn't seem to make the title more popular.]
the only thing that sort of confuses me is Pharell. not that i doubt the mag can come up with something significant, but this man doesn't interest me that much. nor his out-of-the-music-industry talents.
No, I wouldn't have wanted a glamazon on the cover, but I'd rather it was a nude portrait that possessed something more interesting than what I see when I look at the cover shot, when this is a magazine that's interested in stepping a little outside of the mainstream.
I don't find it so regrettable that Agyness is on the cover (well, just a little ); the thing I find regrettable is the greatness that we are not seeing and that could (should?) have been...
Anyway, Steidl's interview might be interesting; he's known for producing very exquisite books.
Let's hope the cover doesn't represent the contents.
