No. 34 - Summer 2024

This summer, See All This brings an exciting issue about clothes and how they behave - how they move us and how they sometimes manage to hinder us. Through the visionary eye of guest curator and forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, you will discover how being overdressed is a social dilemma and how moving from one colour to another is an almost geographical choice. How a wardrobe can be collected as art and how 20th-century art influences today's fashion. How textiles should be revived and revalued. How yellow is the new pink. And how a simple hand-painted apron can transcend fashion and change your life. Forever.
Founding editor Nicole Ex: 'Lidewij Edelkoort offers all she has – her knowledge and persuasiveness, her writing talent, her visual editing and educational skills, her love of Georgia O’Keeffe and passion for Paris – in this deeply personal dossier bursting with predictions, lessons, tips, remarkable people and unique small fashion labels. An invitation to change course once and for all.'
Ten years ago, Lidewij Edelkoort published her famous Anti_Fashion Manifesto: 'I felt compelled to make an indictment of the neglect, abuse, boredom, fear and greed that held back my fascinating world of fashion - and was only working to denigrate it and relegate it to nothing more than clothing,' she writes in See All This. Sadly, little has changed in the past 10 years. But there is a hopeful solution, according to Edelkoort: 'New ways of seeing and experiencing fashion must be explored, because the only cure for our monstrous overconsumption now lies in the hands of you and me as collectors rather than consumers.'
