PpR JOURNAL, THE MAGAZINE OF CONTEMPORARY CULTURE, FASHION, AND DRESS WAS FOUNDED IN 2015 BY DAVID BENNETT.
"PpR Journal, the independent magazine from UK is as free as zine, chill to death"
CLOSING CEREMONY/SAME PAPER
"When did it begin that our clothing stopped to be an expression of belonging? An act of identifying with a certain way of living or a social group? Turning the pages of not another ordinary fashion magazine provides an initial response: quite a while ago...A time when you couldn't simply afford to buy everything you always ever wanted. Without endless adds, light and small-sized, PpR, is anything else than coming off the peg.
Smooth and supple it bypasses our material world by focussing on fashion's - all too often forgotten - potential to communicate between people, clothing and other cultural discourses, as creative director and editor-in-chief David Bennett states. Issue No.4 takes you back to the 80s, a time when London's subculture reassembled, and the moment that the uniform became a symbol of rebellion and nonconformity. Clothing as an act of power against the establishment? Well, this is not what clothes are for these days. Thus, within PpR's glossy and elegant splendor also our continuous aspiration for being - oh so - individual shines in a new light"
DO YOU READ ME?!
"So much in one small magazine"
"Staple bound, it looks like a slip of a thing, and while it is delicate it is a seriously thoughtful and erudite journal with interesting angles on fashion and dress. If you feel slightly bludgeoned by current fashion fixations this is the antidote. Very impressed"
"Sure to catch the eye of Margaret Howell lovers...PpR's singular approach is to explore what clothing tells us about the world around us...PpR has a simple elegance; It's stylish in the way that staple items are, pleasing like a soft raincoat, a well-worn Moleskin and a thin MUJI pen"
