I am new to Rika Magazine and just had to share — based out of the Netherlands, this bi-annual magazine is a visual masterpiece. The combination of super sleek, edgy fonts paired with bright splashes of watercolors and handwriting lend a perfect balance of beauty and grit.
Rika Magazine is the editorial masterpiece of Ulrika Lundgren, founder of the fashion label Rika, and Jacob Wildschiødtz, design director of LOVE magazine. About the magazine, they claim that “Rika looks at women as muses, creators, fighters and lovers in the fields. Each issue picks a theme, which is freely reinterpreted by an array of established and up-and-coming contributors.” Some of those contributors have included Helena Christiansen, Anton Corbijn, Yoko Ono and Milla Jovovich. No big deal!
Rika Magazine is more than just another fashion magazine — it’s like that perfect combination of the girl you meet who’s not only gorgeous but also whip-smart. Lundgren and Wildschiødtzit assert that “a magazine should be a meeting point for a creative community, and a source of inspiration to each and everyone’s daily life.” And Rika does just that. If you’re on the hunt for your own copy, I found mine at Barnes and Noble.
