"Culture is now formed more and more on the Internet rather then in institutions such as museums, schools or even specific locations like cities or countries. In the words of Childish Gambino, we are “because the Internet.”

Joseph Lally and The Avatar Of Artifice.

You're in the eye of the public and the public is looking back at you as if you are a mirror, blank and infinite.You're in the eye of the public and the public is looking back at you as if you are a mirror, blank and infinite.

Beauty is artifice, if the beauty you're talking about is cosmetic. Natural's not in it, much as it pretends to be. The post-digital usually veils this, with great sleight of hand, in the best beauty campaigns and the most seductive editorials, touting the power of the product to transform and transcend. Do we believe this anymore ? I think we do. No matter how far you take it, no matter how Brechtian your post-production gets as an image-maker, we will always want to believe that not only is the image real, but that it is also possible. That is the art of artifice, which is what 21st century fashion has become.

New York vécu and Tokyo's Future Market

By the time we surfaced out of the tunnel and eased into New York City itself, it was 3:30am. Despite ten thousand returns, the first sight of all those vertical towers jutting overhead, so high they seemed to converge, still made for a sharp intake of breath. Having grown up in a restless family, that was always in motion, New York City was the one place in which I had been most grounded, or to use a phrase I just found in a critique of A la Recherche du temps perdu ; "vegetated".

It's been almost three decades of living within New York City's scale and sprawl, drive and energy. More than any where else, it was what had shaped me. I was back for meetings and not much else, not in this my dedicated state of rootlessness, but this morning, this return had a strange tincture. Was it nostalgia?

Current Viewing: Beauty: Joseph Lally at SHOWstudio.com

'Beauty' is Joseph's new series in his signature dark, dystopian, raw style.'Beauty' is Joseph's new series in his signature dark, dystopian, raw style.

One of the great pleasures of working on The Imagist has been to watch the evolution of the Joe Lally's oevure. I'm a shameless fan of all of its 60's/70's experimental cinema grit, its post-Warholian beauties and its thoroughly New York fetishism.

Current Viewing: Saint Laurent: Directed by Bertrand Bonello.

The film centers on Saint Laurent's life from 1967 to 1976, during which time the famed fashion designer was at his peak.The film centers on Saint Laurent's life from 1967 to 1976, during which time the famed fashion designer was at his peak.

Wait! They have serpents? And Helmut Berger? La decadence!

Scoop du Jour: An opening at Hermes and an earful of "on-dits"

Lovers of high quality will be very pleased. The short-list stops there.Lovers of high quality will be very pleased. The short-list stops there.

If the French didn't invent gossip, they sure mastered the art form somewhere between the hallways of Versailles (just ask much maligned Marie Antoinette) or the pages of Proust.

Vanessa Moody as #everything

The momentum of this girl's career jump is simply rapid-fire.The momentum of this girl's career jump is simply rapid-fire.

Of all the new girls that spewed out of the frenzy of the Fall shows, it's Women's Vanessa Moody that stands as the #everything of the current model moment. From the benediction of the opening slots and exclusives at Alexander Wang and Balenciaga, Moody proved the political power of that Wang camp as a crucial model making machine.

Well if there was any brand positioned to harness this generation's penchant for shooting itself in as little clothing as possible, then it had to be Calvin.
