MacGuffin magazine Issue 7 (The Trousers Issue) is out now. Dress up this spring with The Trousers of MacGuffin, dedicated to an object that is so much more than a garment: it’s a mirror of desires and passions far beyond reason. In ‘The Trousers’, MacGuffin empties the wardrobe and slips into survival gear, baggies with attitude, working uniforms, drainpipes, cargo shorts, laced-fly jeans, sexless saggy sack cloths, tent slacks, yoga leggings and bad-boy trousers. The burning question of course is: are pants really all about ass?
MacGuffin magazine is a new and unusual design & crafts publication from Amsterdam. It features fabulous stories about the life of ordinary, often anonymously designed things. Each biannual edition takes an object and explores the manifold stories it generates. Like the MacGuffins in Hitchcock films, these things are not the main characters, but the plot devices that set the story in motion. With each issue based around a single object, MacGuffin magazine is a platform for fans of inspiring, personal, unexpected, highly familiar or utterly disregarded things. Widely recognized as a fabously designed and immaculately researched design & crafts biannual, it is an indispensable resource for all those who want backstage information about the Life of Things.
Umberto Eco, Paul Gorman, Emily King, Gert Jonkers, Karlheinz Weinberger, Emma McClendon and many many more.
