  • Out Now! Our New Print Issue of Contributor is here

    The theme that runs through our latest print issue is CASTING AND COLLECTIONS. Both are central concepts in fashion. The mechanism behind changes in fashion can be compared to a kaleidoscope. Unreliable pieces of clothing are always in flight, ready to become something else. The key to taking hold of these fleeting moments is usually to look at a designer’s handiwork in detail from collection to collection, since clothing derives its consistency from its role as part of a series. Other paths to finding a narrative in fashion are through styling or photography. Patterns seen through the fashion kaleidoscope can, however, easily be freed of their current meaning. After giving it a few violent shakes, they can go from being interpreted as frivolous to provocative and offensive, by rearranging the compositions and shaping themselves into different meanings. By using the kaleidoscope as a metaphor for fashion in this issue entitled CASTING AND COLLECTIONS, we look back at the modernist writers of the early twentieth century who frequently returned to the image of the optical instrument in their writings. When describing the modern experience in “Arcades Project,” Walter Benjamin for one, writes that: “Every age unavoidably seems to itself a new age. The ‘modern,’ however, is as varied in its meaning as the different aspects of one and the same kaleidoscope.

  • Posters from Our Latest Issue: We look at House of Dagmar

    When House of Dagmar re-launched ten of their most gorgeous spring dresses from the past made of knitted lace, silk chiffon and jersey, Contributor Magazine took the opportunity to shoot an army of beautiful models in the collection named “Ten Dresses” for our latest issue which also happens to be number ten. In 2015 Dagmar celebrates ten years as a fashion house and the brand has since its foundation by the three sisters Karin Soderlind, Kristina Tjader and Sofia Wallenstam (with their late grandmother as a muse) become internationally known for its beautifully effortless and bright style that is sexy without trying. The Anniversary Collection is made in a limited and numbered edition and is available at Dagmar’s resellers and on House of Dagmar’s webshop.
