Introducing a Very OC Magazine: OC Annual

BY Rory Satran | Tue. July 31, 2012 | 12:00 AM | OC
The rumors are true: we are debuting our very own magazine in just ten days! Opening Ceremony Annual is an annual limited-edition magazine launching on August 12th, 2012 to coincide with the closing ceremony of the Olympics. This fashion and culture magazine will revolve around a different theme each year, with the inaugural issue focusing fittingly on Sports. Choosing sports as the first theme of OC Annual was not only timely for an Olympic year, but also deeply true to Opening Ceremony, as Carol and Humberto based the concept of the store on Baron de Coubertin’s modern Olympic games. We have been working hard on the magazine for months and are so excited to share it with all of you!

Featuring a cover and ballet vs. basketball love story as imagined by Bruce Weber, as well as contributions by Walter Pfeiffer, Jessica Craig-Martin, Roe Ethridge, Tim Barber, Terence Koh, Marie Chaix, Katja Rahlwes, Max Farago, Poppy de Villeneuve, DIS, Andrew Kuo, Todd Cole, Sean Thomas, Maciek Kobielski, Jesse Pearson, Heidi Julavits, Theo Wenner, Tom Sachs, and many more, the magazine features a range of incredible athletic content. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks over the next few weeks. Pre-order your copy here
