EAGERLY ANTICIPATING: HOLIDAY MAGAZINE: THE JAPAN ISSUE

Après l’Ecosse, c’est au Japon qu’Holiday Magazine a choisi de consacrer ses pages.Après l’Ecosse, c’est au Japon qu’Holiday Magazine a choisi de consacrer ses pages.

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.

I love that the Exhibition magazine team (Edwin Sbarro, Gael Hugo, Boris Ovini) took the "Leather" theme of its current issue and turned it into an exploration of sexuality.

TI's Art Basel Miami dance card is filling up fast. Dec 3rd is marked off for the dinner to celebrate the opening of the Miami Beach Art Photo Expo "In Fashion 07" . Staged in a 30,000 sq foot space the expo runs from Dec 2-9th and is curated by the legendary Marion de Beaupre' . It features the work of photographers Miles Aldridge, Matthew Brookes, Elaine Constantine,Christiane Draffehn, Juan Gatti, Rene Habermacher and Jannis Tsipoulanis, Seb Janiak,Jean Pierre Khazem, David Lachapelle, Serge Lutens, Ali Mahdavi, Jean Baptiste Mondino, Thierry Mugler, Michael James O'Brien, Stephane Sednaoui, David Seidner, Wing Shya, Kanjo Take, Max Vadukul, Willy Vanderperre and Ellen von Unwerth. What we're most excited about is a chance to encounter the work of Lutens. The full on fantasia that his late 60's and 70's work involves looks especially right for now and is ready for the inevitable revival. Plus Thierry Mugler's work with the his fearless vamps posed against monumental architecture is ready to be jacked by some smart young photographer. Jumping on THAT bandwagon, pronto!
