There’s Philippe and then there’s Koeune. Or Philippe Koeune. Or PK. In short, he’s a guy with plenty of imagination who amuses himself by putting his name on the pages of ripped-up magazines. Nostalgia for a bygone age? A thumbed nose to the fashion world? A new brand in the making? With his dedicated work on the letters P and K, he makes us smile, and that’s already better than nothing. He’s created the diptych for our October cover.

But there’s more. PhilippeKoeune, the brand was born of an impulse. A pen, running across the fashion pages of a magazine. An outlet after nearly ten years in fashion, at the helm of a clothing brand. A simple gesture set against the heavy weight of the traditional means of production, sales and promotion. An egocentric approach taken to its natural conclusion (PK PK PK PK PK), as a distorting mirror held up to the industry. Clothes as a crutch for identity and an added ingredient in the dissolution of self.
