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.

"Though this issue’s title appears in quotation marks, the intention is not to be ironic, or to suggest skepticism. Rather, the quotes allude to image quotation and reference, which are part and parcel of any creative act but are essential to the world of fashion. “In today’s professional climate . . . you’re only as good as your references,” guest editors Inez & Vinoodh note in their introduction to a portfolio of images by fashion’s most iconic and imitated photographers. Referencing is delicate, requiring thoughtful handling to avoid crossing the line into copying. Curator Charlotte Cotton remarks in her contribution that fashion photography’s often transparent use of references may be one reason why the genre is criticized from other corners. But in the end what matters is how a reference is used: when adequately transformed, you may sense a quotation but won’t recognize its source.

And so it begins. Gaga's taking back of the cultural moment. In Pop, Cultural Moments are so fleeting these day, maybe we should think of them more as Cultural Seconds. Given our cultural blip-sphere, where 1st week sales might be as good as it gets, you kind of have to admire the gifted megalomaniacs of our day who try to hew great moments …mass movements so to speak…out of a pop market atomized into millions of niche markets.
