Twill is a unique venture in publishing that some media have labeled an intellectual fashion magazine. The oxymoron is rather obvious and, in fact, Twill is not a fashion magazine.' The elegant photography and graphics of ‘Twill make it look like a fashion magazine, but its texts deal with serious subjects or interpret visual arts in a literary key, thus creating glossy storyboards rather than fashion editorials.[2]

The magazine is edited by Fosco Bianchetti; notable past contributors include Daniel Dennett, Tim Footman, Eugenio Recuenco, and Ellen von Unwerth.

It is printed in a large format 23x33cm with circa 224 pages, on high quality paper, printing techniques including drip-off.[4]
