Slurp

Last week, I found a copy of Slurp magazine (the website doesn’t seem to work for me and keeps redirecting to a search engine, but it’s here) on one of those market stalls where you can buy three magazines for £2.50. Considering that it looked a bit different, was the last copy, and usually retails for €25, I snapped it up.

Apparently, “Italian quarterly Slurp was conceived as an antidote to conventional glossies.”  It’s completely full of spelling mistakes, but it looks quite nice on my coffee table.  The only problem is that I can’t quite work out who the magazine is aimed at, it’s full of naked men (most notably, a “portrait” of Tristan, which is basically a pencil drawn outline of his… *ahem*. Yep.), the girls are all dewy and stunning, and then there are articles on the Manson family and Bull Terriers.  It’s a bit confusing.  The interview bits are interesting though. There’s one page interviews with all different kinds of people within the fashion industry, including a little one with Alexander McQueen, which finishes with the line “my head is complicated”, which makes me sad.

    their website says:

    “the natural representation of things, a container for words and images dedicated to all who feel the need to observe, think and imagine”

    A bi-annual magazine talking about fashion, art and music in a researched and creative way
    the images are always produced in house everything is represented in a natural and real manner.

    Distributed worldwide.

    Slurp is produced in house and was thought up and created to inspire, simply being looked at, and to stimulate a desire to go beyond the usual glossy magazines that have become impersonal and standardised!
    Its personality is characterised by simple and direct research! Hushed and silent particular and groomed in every detail.

    The language is direct, simple and comprehensible to make it memorable and recognisable.
    The fashion articles are a careful and researched representation of the fashion system, alternated with articles that perfectly represent images.
    The written texts are duty bound to describe, teach and raise awareness.
