‘CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF YOUTH’
ILOVEFAKE Magazine is a bi-monthly magazine about fashion, art & style. It’s about constantly reinventing and always encouraging creativity. The goal is to be a worldwide inspiration guide in the fashion and culture industry.
ILOVEFAKE is made by independent artists and publishers who are looking beyond a conventional method of distribution and production, hence the online format. Upcoming as well as accomplished artists and photographers from all over the globe are represented. They are not afraid to experiment and share a passion with those with a punk rock way of life, or with a Do It Yourself mindset. ILOVEFAKE strives to continually represent a fresh batch of raw talent. We are proud of publishing the ones who dare to break rules.

#5TH ISSUE \ ILOVEFAKE
December 2013, I LOVE FAKE Magazine released its 5th issue in the recently opened video arcade TonTon Club.
This fifth issue of the magazine is a punk edition and has a spectacular black-clad cover (designed by Studio Pluriform), which shows its true colors when held under the perfect angle. The release was celebrated in the middle of Amsterdam’s Red Light District, in TonTon Club – a place filled with nostalgia in the form of arcade games, alternated with self-developed game projects and 3D printers. But it’s also a place to drink, eat and meet. Warsteiner exclusively brought along its Warsteiner Art vending machine, which dispenses six unique and collectable versions of their beer bottles, decorated by a selection of artists.
