You can now pre-order the spectacular Spring/Summer 2017 issue of Purple Fashion Magazine, available in-stores February 1st 2017.

"Today, we’re living a new sexual revolution. It’s not ideological, but purely technological: social media has enabled us to interconnect and expand our sexual constellation as much as we want and from wherever we may find ourselves. We can disperse sexual imagery — with or without nipples — all over the globe and express our sexual fantasies using tools readily available to everyone. This new game has certainly impacted fashion photography and fashion design," says Editor-in-Chief Olivier Zahm in his editor's letter featured in the newest issue.

Purple Fashion Magazine issue 27 includes interviews with 20th Century Women director Mike Mills, artists Julio Le Parc and Vanessa Beecroft, fashion and furniture with Rick Owens, a conversation between photographer William Eggleston and Glenn O'Brien, portfolios by Ryan McGinley, John Currin... and a special edition Purple Book by Carsten Höller.

purple ART

Last chance to see our recommended art show "The Others" curated by Elmgreen & Dragset, on view until January 22nd in Berlin.

The artist-curators have brought together fifteen works by twelve contemporary artists, like Tacita Dean, Ron Mueck, and Andrea Serrano, who have reimagined the portrayal of the body within Christian iconography. The show is fittingly exhibited at St. Agnes, the Brutalist former Catholic church transformed into the spectacular gallery space by König Galerie.


The Purple x Zana Bayne fetish-inspired choker and belt are on sale now on the Purple Boutique. These pieces are limited edition and handmade. 

In collaboration with the celebrated New York leather designer Zana Bayne, Purple have reworked a classic black leather belt with a simple, brutalist stainless steel buckle.  Each belt is crafted in Zana Bayne's New York atelier and the leather used comes from the highly regarded Horween Leather Company in Chicago, one of oldest tanneries in America founded in 1905.


"I was messing around with the idea of putting an image of a woman in my paintings, and I went to live in Rome for two months on this residency. I looked at a ton of paintings while I was in Rome, and when I came back I just thought: “Screw it. I’m going to do this.” It’s probably where I was in my life, and where I was in my family life — all of that."
