There is a misunderstanding that opposes the individual and the collective. It is undoubtedly nourished by the contradictions of our time, when geographical borders are increasingly up for debate as they vanish through digital technology. A subjective reality where authenticity dresses itself up with a wide range of filters. Yet the collective remains a sum of individualities. It is the diversity of the latter that tends to make them thought of as entities with incompatible values. But if a community is made up of different personalities, what brings them together? 

Common Language. A shared language. One used by bodies to tell a story, one that is always singular and unique. The language of art, which connects the most distant cultures, thrills the emotions and starts dialogue that goes beyond stereotypes. It is out of a desire to share this universal language that this magazine was born. An atypical editorial project, it is being initiated by Chantelle Group, a set of brands whose stories are also different. Complementary visions united in a shared philosophy that holds quality, creativity and simplicity as its highest standards.

Common Language Issue 3

A vast archipelago full of contrasts, with unique and enviable cultural diversity, Japan remains a land of mysteries whose many secrets are endlessly fascinating. In this third issue of Common Language, the balance between tradition and modernity so specific to Japanese culture is represented through the various talents of women with different stories and backgrounds, coming from different generations. Between pop imagery and Zen philosophy, past and future, popular myths and well-kept secrets, Japanese culture acknowledges and accepts its contradictions and plurality. Initiated by Chantelle Group, Common Language seeks to open up new perspectives and embrace different points of view, broader than the ones that too often circumscribe the norm. Our goal is to see beyond appearances.

Common Language Issue 2

Demythologising. This second issue of Common Language lays out major, founding narratives and attempts to understand how these have spread over time and beyond borders. And what better example than the United States of America, a mash-up of territories with various cultures. It is not a question here of retracing its history but of seeing how this melting pot has enabled different voices to emerge that are heard and respected. The idea is to showcase those who have deftly brought people together, within their communities and beyond. Through its various articles and reportages, whether portraits or artistic portfolios, Common Language opens its pages to women who prove that what is best for the future is not utopian, but a vision to defend. Defining our utopia. Advocating multifarious, inclusive, and fluid femininity; a gaze that is equally as attentive to the self as it is open to others. Here, it is an inspiring commitment, reflecting all of these women who are sharing their story.

Common Language Issue 1

Through this first issue of Common Language we wanted to highlight a desire to represent women in all their diversity: artistic, sensitive, supportive, philosophical, curious... It is difficult, if not impossible, to be exhaustive. Which is why this first chapter exists: to be enriched by the next ones. While there are many heroines in this story, the action is focused on a single location: Sicily. An island of foundational myths that remains a land of crossroads with that very special light, the perfect decor for starting these encounters..
