System magazine is a biannual publication geared toward insiders of the fashion industry. Miroslava Duma's company, Buro 24/7, acquired the majority stake in the magazine in 2017.[2] System was founded by Alexia Niedzielski, Elizabeth von Guttman, Thomas Lenthal, and Jonathan Wingfield.[3] The four founders are the sole members of the editorial board for the magazine.[4] As the New York Times noted, the four founder-editors are unquestionably part of the exclusive world covered in their magazine.[4] Niedzielski previously worked as a brand consultant for Louis Vuitton and counts many well-known socialites as her personal friends; she was also described as an "international fashion icon" by W magazine.[5] (Full disclosure: System's former parent company, Condé Nast, is the parent company for W.) Prior to founding System, Niedzielski and von Guttman worked together as contributors at Industrie magazine.[6] In 2009, they joined forces with Charlotte Casiraghi in launching the first issue of Ever Manifesto.[6][3]

About[edit]

Niedzielski has called System a "deep thoughts magazine," with a budget of $100,000 per issue "pooled with consulting projects done by Niedzielski and von Guttman."[7] It was started with a mission to explore current events and issues in the fashion industry.[7]

Issues[edit]

  • The first issue, System No. 1, was published in the summer of 2013. That issue was guest edited by Marie-Amélie Sauvé, Senior Fashion Editor for W magazine.[7]
  • Charlotte Casiraghi modeled gender fluid looks, wearing menswear by Gucci, for the camera of Collier Schorr; the photographs were included in System No. 8, the autumn/winter issue of 2016.
  • The latest issue, System No. 12, was released near the close of 2018.
