Perfect magazine is a fully independent fashion publication that showcases the work of leading practitioners in the art of image-making from around the world. Produced by the Perfect creative agency, it provides a global survey of the ideas currently shaping fashion culture across its most inspiring frontiers.
For Issue One, Perfect continues to build on the global network of image-makers which we established six months ago with our soft-launch prototype, Issue Zero. Our collaborators this issue cover cities across the world including Davey Adesida in New York, Zhong Lin in Taipei, Paul Kooiker in Amsterdam, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari in Rome, Derrick O Boateng in Accra, Leslie Zhang and Wang Liang in Shanghai, Rafael Pavarotti, Mark Kean and Bella Blu in London, Jang Dukhwa in Seoul, Alasdair McLellan and Phil Knott in Los Angeles, Elizaveta Porodina in Munich, Egor Fedosov in Moscow, Jahmad Balugo in Honolulu, Steve Mackey in Venice, Campbell Addy on a personal photographic tour of Ghana and model Mariacarla Boscono, who photographs, styles and features in her own solo shoot in the wilds of Calanchi di Atri in Italy.
The Perfect team has also created bespoke content for fashion brands such as Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, AMI Paris, Burberry, Chanel, Michael Kors, Lacoste and Boucheron, as well as special projects for Instagram in Paris and New York.
Issue One is an homage to fashion – specifically, the life-enhancing sense of joy that great fashion can inspire – and features interviews with a vast variety of designers, including Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk of Area, Olivier Rousteing, Bianca Saunders, Richard Quinn, Jean Paul Gaultier, Michaela Stark, Claire Choisne, Christopher John Rogers, Tom Ford, Anthony Vaccarello, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Schiaparelli’s artistic director Daniel Roseberry, as well a rundown of the most innovative designers and fashion brands emerging from the creative centres of Accra, Moscow and Shanghai.
Well known public figures appearing in the issue include musician Eliot Sumner, influencer Bretman Rock, models Gigi Hadid, Kristen McMenamy, Lila Moss and Abbey Lee Kershaw, and TV personality Paris Hilton.
Such is the quality of content in Perfect Issue One that almost every single image has been treated to its own cover. There are 422 cover in all, printed in runs of varying sizes, so some are rarer than others.
