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.

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.

The Art Gallery As The New Defining Space Of Pop Culture.

Those early leaks about Gaga's next long-player being a multimedia art project ended up being verified.Those early leaks about Gaga's next long-player being a multimedia art project ended up being verified.

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.
