Denim Inspiration Overload: Flaunt Magazine

We got a nice surprise when we saw the latest issue of Flaunt Magazine this month: not only is the mag full of amazing denim editorial and info, but the thing is actually covered in denim! You can’t get more serious than that…

The issue travels the globe, visiting all the key denim destinations: Turkey, Tokyo, New York, L.A. and San Fransico to name but a few. And contains features with Sam Ku of AG jeans, Donwan Harrell of PRPS, Brandon Svarc of Naked & Famous, Andrew Olah of Kingpins trade show, the list goes on….

The issue is enveloped in denim, curtesy of Guess (longtime collaborators with Flaunt), who is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. The denim editorials are great, too, with six different renowned photographers shooting key denim looks: Paolo Zerbini, Franck Sauvaire, Taghi Naderzad, Josh McNey, Rachel Bank, and Lorenzo Marcucci.

“I’m really proud of the ground we’ve broken with this issue.  Other magazines are getting thinner and smaller to save money, but we’ve gone in the other direction, and built something that, when you hold it in your hands, lets you feel just how extraordinary print publishing can be.  It seems like a turning point for a new era creativity in print.”   Luis Barajas, FLAUNT Founder / Editor-In-Chief

We’ve hardly managed to get started as it’s an overwhelming read, but with everything from the history of denim, to indigo dying in Japan to the new players on the block, this really is more of a bible than a magazine – got get a copy!
