Our Take —
The brainchild of Daniel Magnussen, whose association with a magazine called HE seems to be a big deal locally, the idea is that Intermission will, in Magnussen’s opinion, bring an important addition to the Scandinavian publishing scene by having a strong point of view. Again, I guess only time – and translations or reading Swedish- will tell whether his view of his publication is accurate or not, since, on the face of it, it appears to be a fairly middle-of-the road publication for some of the efforts coming out of Scandinavia these days. Over-sized with a simple unpretentious art direction, the fashion photography tends towards the direct and simple aesthetic associated with the region.
One thing that does seem notable about this publication, however is that it seems to focus heavily on celebrities and talents from outside of northern Europe, making it somewhat unusual for a Scandinavian magazine.
