Opening Ceremony to Debut a Magazine in August
May 14, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
Everyone always says print is a dying medium, but it seems to be evolving just fine as magazines become more of a collector's item rather than a monthly offering. Opening Ceremony is naturally hip to the trend and is launching a collectible fashion and culture magazine this August called OC Annual.
Each issue of OC Annual will carry a theme with August's debut issue focusing on sports in honor of The Olympics and featuring the work of photographers Bruce Weber, Walter Pfeiffer, Todd Cole and Tim Barber.
Opening Ceremony's co-founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon plan on publishing only 30,000 copies of the mag with the aim of creating "a collectible publication for a new generation, something beautiful and special...that will appeal to kids in Nebraska as much as industry people.
Also debuting this year is a commemorative book from Rizzoli celebrating the store's 10 year anniversary with contributions from Terry Richardson, Chloë Sevigny, Alexander Wang, M.I.A. and Sally Singer among others. [WWD]
