Suede was an ‘ethnic fashion’ magazine, a joint venture between Essence magazine and Time Inc. It printed 4 issues, Fall 2004 — Spring 2005.
Suede magazine’s Manifesto: ‘Style is in our DNA. And we, the multi-culti urbanistas stand at a new intersection of street and chic. Our dial is tuned to the catwalk and the corner. We are fashion crazy. We come from the culture on the come up and use fashion to amplify who we are. We revel in the entire spectrum of black beauty and love the skin we’re in. Feel it.’
Perla was used for headlines, with — probably — a keyline applied to thicken up the thin stress for use at smaller sizes.
