SUITED is a biannual fashion and art publication with a singular mission in mind: to celebrate those who have found what they are well-suited for. Our objective is to showcase independent thinkers passionate about creating work that is at once inspired, influential and timeless.
IN THIS ISSUE
The individuals featured in our second issue defy categorization. Their work—in fashion, art, design, music, activism and more—is, for each of them, a true expression of the Self.
Model, artist and writer Myla DalBesio explores this concept of the Self for our cover story, photographed by Paul Jung. Her essay—a memoir of the body, a life's history told in the
flesh—reveals the essential connection between the inner and outer selves. By cataloging the physical she lays bare the emotional life within us all.
