A Magazine curated by is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue. We invite a guest curator - an international fashion designer, group or house - to develop innovative, personalized content to express their aesthetic and cultural values. Each issue celebrates this designer’s ethos: their people, their passion, their stories, emotions, fascinations, spontaneity and authenticity.

FLORAGATAN 13 CURATED BY ACNE STUDIOS
Photography by Philippe Chancel
A Magazine Curated By presents FLORAGATAN 13 CURATED BY ACNE STUDIOS, an architectural and design survey of the new Acne Studios headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden — an exceptional historical building both restored and transformed as a fashion atelier and corporate office. Known as Floragatan 13 (for its Stockholm address), the edifice was completed in 1972 as the Embassy of the Czech Republic, designed by Jan Bočan from the Czech architect bureau Atelier Beta Prague.
Conceived as a visual essay by acclaimed French photographer Philippe Chancel, this 100-page document delves into the building floor by floor, beginning with the sixth level management offices and descending ten storeys through each crucial component of the design and production ateliers including inspiring communal and private spaces such as creative director Jonny Johansson’s office, the ground floor library, underground canteen and photo studio.
From floor to floor, Philippe Chancel’s crisp, exacting digital photography is accompanied by insightful quotes by Acne Studios’ creative director Jonny Johansson, architect Johannes Norlander, the Acne Studios teams and external artistic collaborators, who each reveal the creative processes they applied to create unique works for Floragatan 13.
