Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
A departure from the traditional fashion magazine format
For Issue One, Perfect continues to build on the global network of image-makers which we established six months ago with their soft-launch prototype, Issue Zero. Their collaborators in this issue cover cities across the world.
The Perfect team has also created bespoke content for fashion brands such as Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, AMI Paris, Burberry, Chanel, Michael Kors, Lacoste and Boucheron, as well as special projects for Instagram in Paris and New York.
Issue One is an homage to fashion – specifically, the life-enhancing sense of joy that great fashion can inspire – and features interviews with a vast variety of designers, including Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk of Area, Olivier Rousteing, Bianca Saunders, Richard Quinn, Jean Paul Gaultier, Michaela Stark, Claire Choisne, Christopher John Rogers, Tom Ford, Anthony Vaccarello, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Schiaparelli’s artistic director Daniel Roseberry, as well a rundown of the most innovative designers and fashion brands emerging from the creative centres of Accra, Moscow and Shanghai.
‘It’s not just another magazine… It could be anything – or everything – I’ve ever done coming together.’
