The Evolution of Collaboration Culture
Published by TDS agency (THE DAILY STREET), designed by Rita Peres Pereira, and printed in London by Park Communications (Jocks&Nerds, Designo, Protein, Printed Pages, and more), each issue is split into three sections, reflecting the main themes of CREPE CITY as a brand and event; SNEAKERS, COLLECTING, and CULTURE.
The cover is printed on 300gsm satin paper stock before being laminated and embossed to give it our unique texture, finished with a spot UV varnish on the embossed logo. This issue sees us move on from the blank cover of issue 01 and present a choice of two striking covers – Nike Air Max BW Premium and adidas Originals NMD City Sock.
Issue 02 consists of 182 pages, filled with exceptional content from the likes of Gary Warnett, David Hellqvist, Bruno Drummond, Gary Aspden, Mehdi Lacoste, Samuel Smith, Joe Cruz, Gregk Foley, Seth Footring, Simone Smyth, and Phil Knott. Ranging from eye grabbing and thought provoking photography editorials, to interviews with Steve Van Doren and Nic Galway, to a 14 page ode to the PUMA DISC SYSTEM, CREPE CITY Magazine has been created to engage readers and educate them on stories and histories that they may not already be aware of.
Each issue features a 20+ page study of a single collector’s archive. Presented as a book within the magazine itself, Archive is our nod to the geeky side of sneaker collecting, or hoarding if we’re being more honest. It features its own cover, using the same textured paper stock as the magazine cover, but in a lighter weight, as well as its own off-white premium stock for internal pages to mimic an encyclopaedia. Issue 02 sees a personal selection from Steve Van Doren, showcasing 53 pairs from one of the most interesting Vans collections possible. Archive isn’t about hype or resell value, it’s about cherished favourites, forgotten gems, unsung heroes, and even the occasional unknown sample.
