models.com presents an exclusive preview: Document Journal
NYFW brings with it the launch of Document Journal, an ambitious NYC fashion and culture glossy with a global perspective. Focusing on a singular ideal the magazine aims for “a blending of viewpoints with a variety of aesthetics and backgrounds that share a similar fascination: Beauty.”
“We wanted to “Document” aesthetics in this moment in history, allowing people to sit down and enjoy different aspects of life on paper. Something collectible but not consumeristic, an intimate moment in this hectic life to discover, and be inspired by, things our readers are attracted to but not necessarily informed about. We wanted to create something inspirational for different kinds of people with a variety of aesthetics and backgrounds with a similar attraction: beauty. All of this with a point of view, current and nostalgic but also forward-looking.” —James Valeri, Creative & Fashion Director
“People are ready for a new approach. Everything about Document will be different. It’s a wide-ranging platform for art, portraiture, men’s and women’s fashion, both looking forward and cognizant of the past. Document moves easily between luxury and popular culture and is astute, unexpected, minimal, and timeless.” —Nick Vogelson, Editorial Director & Publisher
Boasting 200+ pages of art, fashion, and cultural content from renowned and up-and-coming names in the visual arts, fashion, film and literature, Document raises the bar for September issues. The curated content selection features a variety of contributors – top photographers; Collier Schorr, Jeff Burton, Jack Pierson, David Armstrong, Paul Wetherell, Benjamin Alexander Huseby, Maripol, Catherine Servel, Sofia & Mauro, and Miguel Reveriego, A-List editors Sabina Schreder (Purple, i-D, AnOther), Samuel François (Numéro), Jodie Barnes (Fantastic Man) and of course top models like Liya Kebede, Eniko Mihalik, Bette Franke and Hanne Gaby Odiele, who takes on styling duties in a special story.
