The concept behind .Cent Magazine: to invite a notable creative or creative duo to be the editor(s) and to base the theme of the issue on one of their core beliefs. The guest editors then invite others to contribute an interpretation of the theme. In the final step, readers are invited to make suggestions for the following issue. This concept has been named Circlical© Publishing
Issue 10 of .Cent Magazine is the Basso and Brooke Issue(Cover pictured above - Miss Huxley print, Basso and Brooke S/S 08). The theme of Issue 10 is 'Ornament'.
Contributors include Christian Lacroix, Paul Smith, Jessica Craig-Martin, Graeme Montgomery and Martin Parr.
Bruno Basso(Brazilian, designer) and Chris Brooke(English, illustrator) met in 2002, and in 2004 won the London Fashion Fringe award with a collection with classic looking print styles - which on close inspection reveal 'an orgiastic carnival of sexual liberation and allegories of power'. Basso and Brooke's SS08 collection uses vivid coloured prints on beautiful, modern, classy dresses and jackets. When presenting the collection, models would also wear 'Palette' hats from Stephen Jones Millinery.
.Cent Magazine is published bi-annually from the UK.
