This is What It Made Us Think About...

Andre Walker
has created a new magazine. Does the industry need another fashion magazine?

I know it makes me think about the fashion industry and the importance (and price tag) of breaking out of the mold of conventional time frames (fashion, media, seasons) in hopes that this spur change the way people view fashion and food (there are recipes in there... we aren't the only ones who see the symbiosis.)

This magazines also reintroduces the industry as more of an art form than throw away trends. And who would throw away a $375 magazine?? Exactly.

"The unorthodox editorial mission goes a long way to explaining the tantalizingly disparate submissions, including a photo-shoot collaboration between Marc Jacobs and Jean-Paul Goude, a screenplay by the writer Hilton Als, recipes for white food by Tucker Shaw and even a blessing from Walker’s mother, an ordained minister." -Horacio Silva

overall. this is rad.

love you, mean it.
