A self deprecating print-only magazine embedded with humour and wit, Merde reflects on fashion’s cultural landscape by exploring the creative process without a filter. With the aim to disrupt tired fashion narratives, each biannual issue picks a theme to explore -in all seriousness.
Merde is ruled and empowered by atypical creative expression. It explores the visions and voices of unlikely narratives from inside and outside the fashion scene, building a larger story of creative practices.
The special larger Issue 5 navigates contradictions, controversy, and oppositions in the fashionscape. The cover editorial is shot by Alexander Massek in London, complimenting a story exploring form versus function by Matthew Burgos.
