Stache Magazine Online

For this issue the team decided to step out of its comfort zone and do something we haven’t yet done. In fact I was hesitant to dedicate a whole issue to “craft” for that very reason. Stache is not Frankie Magazine and nor do we want it to be. But actually meeting the challenge head on was at once terrifying and liberating, and we could not have done it if it weren’t for the team’s enthusiasm to make things happen.
Gracing our cover this month are Stache’s old friends Thea de Rivera and Gab Bustos, also known as The Girl + The Bull. We talked to them about food and relationships and the craft aspect of their business, among other things. We also interviewed artisans Benjie Torrado Cabrera, Anna Gorman, and Miguel Santiago of The Barista Box. There is an article about Marc Jacobs leaving Louis Vuitton, an article about the art of music sampling, and an article about the mixed mediums of embroidery and traditional art. We also paid tribute to the great Philip Seymour Hoffman. There are many more in the following pages of this magazine, and I’ll let you explore them on your own.
We didn’t create this issue because we wanted to show everyone we know a great deal about the subject; we do not, and that I suppose is the reason the magazine turned out the way it did: an experimental endeavour. Which is not to say it turned out a failure. It didn’t, at least we don’t see it that way.

Craft issue, out February 23, 2014! www.stachemagazine.com

3rd anniversary, 3 artists

For the longest time I wanted to make a “Nostalgia Issue” for Stache, but the right opportunity never came up until two months ago, when the entire team realized that the magazine is turning three. So what better way to celebrate the anniversary than to look back on the past simply reminisce.

One of the many reasons why we decided to go with “Nostalgia” is because 2013 has been a particularly blessed year for the team. First we won the Globe Tatt Awards, which was amazing. Second we got to interview The National for our annual music issue, and because they are one of my favorite bands ever, it was easily one of the highlights of my year. Third, just as always, we get to interact with a lot of artists all over the world, further strengthening our drive to cultivate the creative minds of the youth. And we hope we are able to do this online endeavor for much longer because we believe in the youth.

This issue we tackle a lot of things from the past, from the 1900s (our associate editor Cindy Hernandez wrote about the appeal of period dramas) to the 1960s (three of our illustrators gave their own takes on the iconic 60s advertisement posters), to the 1990s (our fashion editor Ecks Abitona talked about the death of the elusive supermodel). And we have three artists who excel in their particular fields as our cover persons. There is Felix Zenger, the world famous beatboxer; Raymond Ang, one of the best young writers in the country today; and Celina de Guzman, whose artworks are breathtakingly stunning.

So — at the risk of being cliche — sit back, relax, and take a trip down memory lane with us. Have a happy holiday and a happier 2014.

Cheers,Jared Carl Millan
