Break Magazine – Origin of the name – GIA


The magazine till the present day has been called quite a few things (Labia, Minora, Gentille) and most of them I was fairly happy with but none of them had that punch or edge.

As luck would have it I was watching the movie GIA and there is a scene where she’s high (a usual state) for the tragic supermodel, and she BREAKS into her lover Linda’s apartment by smashing the glass with her shoe.

I watched that scene over and over again, each time paying close attention to the noise, the sound, that was made by this breaking and forth came the name BREAK.

GIA’s beauty and her self-destruction is so powerfully portrayed by Angelina Jolie. Her life story is one that I draw inspiration from however sad the ending there is so much to be said for her spirit, her energy, she was captivating.
