I’m back in Germany for Christmas and have spent the last day going through my dad’s huge collection of Twen Magazine. Twen, a German mag published between 1959 and 1971, is my favourite publication of all times.
It was incredibly risky and controversial in its message – go fuck around, go travel, enjoy life – long before ‘hippie’ or ‘sexual revolution’ became cultural buzz words. Some of my favourite articles include “Every woman needs two lovers” and “Everything you need to know about shitting”. Not to mention the incredible fashion spreads, done in colour, that showcase the avant-garde in fashion at the time.
