TI doesn't hide his fascination with Japan and its multifaceted culture nor can he even hope to veil his fetish for all things Klossowski. So, when courtesy of the new issue of Holiday, Countess Setsuko Klossowka Rola opens the doors of her legendary Swiss chalet, Rossignère, who do you think is first at the portal? Add to that, an Inez and Vinoodh collaboration with Serge Lutens to pay tribute to the Kabuki theatre, Edie Campbell's travel snippets and Karim Saldi's photo-essay on Japanese expatriates in Paris and the consequence is a must-read publishing event. We ache in anticipation.

Après l’Ecosse, c’est au Japon qu’Holiday Magazine a choisi de consacrer ses pages. Dépêché sur l’archipel dans la droite lignée des périples esthétiques chers à la revue, le photographe Josh Olins pourchasse les mystérieuses beautés nippones jusque dans leur décor. A ses côtés, l’écrivain Eric Reinhardt y narre son propre périple, Inez & Vinhood et Serge Lutens rendent hommage aux acteurs de Kabuki – dont l’une des icônes, Ebizo Ichikawa XI, s’affiche en couverture - Karim Sadli pose son regard sur les Japonais évadés à Paris, Donald Keene raconte les dernières heures de Yukio Mishima, Edie Campbell son voyage, et Jéromine Savignon la folle éclosion parisienne de Kenzo Takada. L’ex premier ministre et désormais céramiste Morihiro Hosokawa se livre également à Holiday, tandis que la comtesse Setsuko Klossowka de Rola ouvre au magazine les portes de son chalet suisse de La Rossinière - où elle vécut près de quarante ans avec le peintre Balthus – mais aussi celles de sa garde-robe, le temps de dévoiler sa collection de kimonos.

After Scotland, Holiday is devoting its pages to the Land of the Rising Sun. Dispatched to the Japanese archipelago in the magazine’s grand tradition of lavish, aesthetic trips, the photographer Josh Olins chases mysterious Nipponese wonders in their natural habitat. Alongside him, the acclaimed writer Eric Reinhardt narrates his personal tour, while Inez & Vinhood and Serge Lutens pay tribute to the Kabuki theater—including one of the form’s living icons, Ebizo Ichikawa XI, who also graces the cover—Karim Sadli turns his lens on Japanese expatriates in Paris, Donald Keene recalls the final hours of the literary giant Yukio Mishima, Edie Campbell offers snippets of her travels, and Jéromine Savignon recounts the Parisian blossoming of the designer Kenzo Takada. Plus the former prime minister turned ceramicist, Morihiro Hosokawa, opens up to Holiday while the Countess Setsuko Klossowka Rola opens the doors of her legendary Swiss chalet, Rossignère—where she lived for nearly forty years with the painter Balthus—along with her wardrobe, unveiling her extensive collection of silk kimonos.

Taste is a dictatorship.
