MAKE MAGAZINE ISSUE 19 GENERATION
Welcome to the 19th issue of Make; Our usual hit of culture, style and beauty!
You may have heard of the world’s blue zones. If not, these are the five places across the globe where the highest numbers of centenarians live and thrive. Those who have studied what is unique about these different locations have noted that there are three main things that they have in common: They eat close to nature, predominately, lots of local fruit and vegetables. They do daily, gentle exercise like gardening or walking up the hill to the local church. The last commonality (and maybe the most interesting one) is that the celebrate their elders. The older people in their community are venerated, valued and are an important part of the community.
This got us thinking on the theme of ‘generations’. How we are all generationally influenced, particularly in the fields of fashion and beauty. How every generation loves to reference back through the passage of time to lift trends and use and adapt them for inspiration.
So, in this issue we fixed upon the idea of generations because we are very grateful for all the trailblazers who went before us and paved the way for all the new creatives that followed in their game-changing footsteps.
So whether it’s our fashion feature celebrating the timeless Burberry Macintosh, Matthew Eades beautiful portraits of family generations or our visit to Tel Aviv documenting the recent evolution of a fascinating city, we are thinking about the passage of time and what it means to us each, uniquely.
So, our 19th issue has our usual mix of fashion, style, art and travel. As ever we are indebted to OUR generation of creatives, who (we are sure) will all freely admit that they are influenced by the imagery that came before them. It’s often said that creatives have to create, but still, we know our magazine would be nothing without their beautiful work.
And we hope, like most artists in their field, that our work will be enjoyed for generations.
