REVVER is labeled as an “underground” magazine.

In fact, from the art and the fashion scenes we are regarded as a non-mainstream publication. Our content are not commercially driven, our business-model is not advertising based, we are still “underground” because we set ourselves apart from other influencers.

This is our strength: making REVVER different at any cost. It’s not being pretentious but it’s a form of resistance against the mainstream way of thinking.

In this issue we try to revisit the key influence of “underground” movements in creativity and art production mainly cinema and music. From the art viewpoint, with the artist Baptiste Tavernier and the Taiwanese designer Ray Chu, we explore the dynamics of “underground” as a creativity process. We also question ourselves in the Stephane Ferrero’s fashion story “Boyz N the hood” – shot in Taipei in collaboration with Fred Perry – to assess how much left we have about “being underground”. Is it fair to consider “underground’ as a dead concept nowadays? I will share my feelings with you…

It’s all about feelings anyway…

 

REVVER被標記為“地下(反主流)的文化”雜誌。

事實上,從藝術和時尚風貌,我們被視為非主流出版物。 我們的內容不是商業驅動的,我們的商業模式不是基於廣告,我們仍然是“地下”的,因為我們脫離了其他影響力

這是我們的優勢:使REVVER不同。 這不是自命不凡的,而是對主流思維方式的抵制。

在這期,我們試圖回顧“地下(反主流)的文化”運動在創作和藝術生產中的主要影響,

主要是電影和音樂。 從藝術的角度來看,藝術家Baptiste Tavernier和

台灣設計師雷·朱(Ray Chu),我們將探索“地下(反主流)的文化”的動態作為創作過程。

我們也在Stephane Ferrero的時尚故事“Boyz N the hood” 中質疑自己 –

與Fred Perry合作在台北拍攝,以評估我們對“地下(反主流)的文化”有存在多少。

“地下(反主流)的文化”這個概念已經消失殆盡了嗎?我會和你分享我的感受

無論如何這一切都是關於感覺…
