"We grew up in a world where it was ok to exchange ideas with other people, and it wasn’t so rigid, and it's like what you said about the new wave and punk movement, it was much more raw and tougher and it was about a bunch of people who had something to say. It wasn't so boxed in and so pre-fabricated. It was something very organic and cool and very hard, you know, which is great."
Marc Jacobs in conversation with Maripol, excerpted from Little Red Riding Hood.

It was a brutal week in the campaign sweepstakes with Madonna snatching LV from the supermodel contingent.

It is right there beneath the surface. Whenever TI looks at the kids on the streets these days with all that color clashing, all that kitsch all that vibrancy we feel the tremors of a Fiorucci comeback. Founded in 1967 in Italy by Elio Fiorucci to bring the style of Swinging London to young Italians, the New York off-shoot of the shop (in Bloomingdale's) during the 1980's saw the likes of Marc Jacobs and a young Madonna and ID mag's Terry Jones, gallivanting through the premises. You could fully sense the influence that Fiorucci aesthetic had on the early imagery of these generation-defining mavericks. Early Madonna was a walking Fiorucci pastiche and the early Marc Jacobs exhibited a penchant for kitsch that he later refined into a kind of jaded irony as he grew older. Also cruise any of the first 15 issues of ID magazine online and you'll see color strategies and graphic design motifs straight out of Fiorucci.

A great part of the myth of NY living (which I'm getting into again) is the dream of walking through the night dressed with as much freak appeal as you want to. Its about walking into a cavernous black hall with the speakers pumping a baseline so deep, it threatens to obliterate your heartbeat.You descend to the dancefloor and grinding on that pit is a multi-cultural , polysexual mixed bag of fashion students, art school drop outs, trust fund brats, club kids, drag queens, sexy babes, boy toys and uhm...models (preferably of high campaign distinction). Ruling above it all is usually a god-like figure...the legendary DJ.

This is what the love of fashion can spawn. Our very devoted fashion contributer Max, has just outlined a veritable THESIS on directional fashion photographer Steven Meisel. Intense no? If Max does pull it off, this could well be a scholarly book sold in college bookstores worldwide. Make room Madonna!
