Sunday Girl

“To all the girls, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.” Of all the girls who represent a day of the week, Sunday should be the best. Monday’s drawling, Tuesday’s boring, Wednesday and Thursday wolf-whistle Friday, who’s too busy chatting up Saturday to notice. Sunday Girl’s pyjamaed until twelve, sleepy and searching for something sweet, swaddled in blanket, barefoot; effortlessly dressed in a cool and comfortable style, approachable and accessible. It’s this understated, relaxed atmosphere which makes Sunday Girl so easy to...

The Baffler

We opened Magalleria to offer something different. Different magazines of course, but effectively different information, different tastes, different opinions and so on. The Baffler is a left-leaning US journal of cultural and political analysis that ought to be better known here. As we seemingly lurch into an age of fear – or right wing populism as the magazine itself would put it – The Baffler is providing some interesting angles.  I decided to write about The Baffler after spotting Thomas Frank’s article about curating in the latest issue (No 34).

Meet Amy

We’re always being asked who our customers are. We’re still trying to work that out, but from day one we realised that the people who buy from us are usually well informed, often opinionated and, it goes without saying, very tasteful. Today we're meeting Amy... Hello Amy! How are you? I’m very well, thank you!  What do you do? I am a freelance illustrator and maker.  Where do you come from? Originally I come from a tiny village in Oxfordshire called Buckland, but I live in Bath now. How did you come across Magalleria? I think I found you guys while...

Beauty Papers

Beauty Papers

Beauty Papers peels back the mask of branded, formulaic fashion to reveal creases of skin underneath, something unabashedly human and, well, beautiful.  Issue three is a highly textural exposure of beauty in its raw and uncompromising forms. Despite its nonconformist features, you still feel safely embedded in a fashion magazine; the pages are smooth and high quality, they have been playful with choices of paper for each feature and some models rock an iconic dead-behind-the-eyes look. There are five covers to choose from, ranging from mild to transgressive. It suits its ideal that there is not and should not be...
