French 'anti-fashion', art and culture magazine founded in Paris in 1992 by Olivier Zahm and Elein Fleiss and inspired by the likes of Nova, Interview and Helmut Newton's Illustrated. Since 2004, Purple has been divided into two different publications - Purple Fashion edited by Zahm and published by Purple Institute, and Purple Journal edited by Fleiss and Sebastien Jamain and published by Les Editions Purple.
