About this issue
We are delighted to announce that the 16th edition of A Magazine Curated By has been guest edited by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, for a worldwide release in November 2016.
This landmark issue of A Magazine unfolds over 280 pages of exclusive content developed by Alessandro Michele, preserving the ‘carte blanche’ free-reign concept devised by Walter Van Beirendonck in 2001. An unprecedented cast of international contributors were invited to express their creative perspective on a theme dear to Michele’s heart; each were offered the words ‘blind for love’ as the starting point for over forty distinct narratives that unfold throughout.
