Introducing Issue 3 of Our 10+ Boxazine with Sophia Neophitou’s Editor’s Letter, OUT December 10th
True beauty is eternal. It defies time and place, endures all motions and emotions. And that’s what we’re celebrating with our next issue of the 10+ boxazine – a time-travelling sense of grace that took over the fashion industry for the Cruise 2020 season, now reflected inside this big blue box. In addition to our photographic and journalistic reportage from the big destination shows, you can go behind-the-scenes of Dior’s couture atelier, learn more about artist Daniel Arsham, get introduced to the creative family of Alessandro Sartori’s Ermenegildo Zegna XXX world and go back in time with a big retrospective profile of the cover-man of our inside magazine, Tommy Hilfiger.
There are two covers of the big blue box. The menswear one is starring Matthew Petersen in Ermenegildo Zegna XXX, photographed by Vanina Sorrenti and styled by Julie Ragolia, while the couture cover sees Lena Kiselucka in Givenchy haute couture (duh!), as styled by Hector Castro and photographed by Thomas Hauser. Both are currently available to preorder via 10 Curates until December 10th when the issue launches globally.
ENDURING, MOTION, GRACE is dedicated to our editor-in-chief Sophia Neophitou’s father, who passed away during the making of the magazine. This is her editor’s letter:
“DEDICATED TO MY MAGICAL DAD 1.11.39 — 17.10.19
On Thursday, October 17, I lost my brilliant, bright shining light, my beautiful magical Dad. I know he hasn’t really left at all but will be with us always in all the beautiful memories we shared, his laughter, his kindness, his giant capacity for love and forgiveness. He taught me that there is goodness and love everywhere. His compassion was so pure and good. There was always a seat at our table for all the waifs and strays he encountered along the way. Even on Christmas Day he would arrive with a person who had no family, to sit and share our table, often to my Mum’s dismay.
He taught us to share everything and to celebrate every single moment of every single day and recognise the things and people that are important. To always show compassion and love each other. His heart was golden, full of so much kindness and love. He taught me to reach for the stars and beyond and follow my dreams and believe that all my far-fetched ideas could be a reality and truly possible. To take risks with no regrets and to never compromise, to give everything to everyone, 100% of the time.
I want to remember his laughter and his mischievous nature.
Wherever he was he was the life and soul. Like the sun he shone so bright, we all orbited around his warmth and light. He had such an abundance of love and such a zest for life, I love him so, so much. He is my total hero in life and beyond.
The love he spread on this Earth will continue to grow and live in us all – my golden-hearted, beautiful, magical boy Zac, my brave, strong brilliant sister Emmy, her little angel Amelio, my loving, kind, caring little brother Phido and his little angels Athena and Isabela.
Goodbye, my darling Dad, till we see each other again in Paradise.”
Issue 3 of our 10+ Boxazine, ENDURING, MOTION, GRACE, is out on December 10th. You can now pre-order it online via 10 Curates.
