"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.

This fall issue of CRUSHfanzine is dedicated to the various approaches of “sex appeal”. “Sex Appeal“ profiles various talents which exude the raw energy that allures, enchants and effortlessly drive our obsessions. Throughout this issue, readers are re-introduced to acclaimed cultural icons and they will meet new personalities which will soon become favorites.

Within the pages of “Sex Appeal”, each person was asked a few questions about nostalgic moments in their lives. Many of the subjects were chosen because they hold a certain place in our psyche and they are
personal favorites of the photographers. Those being featured represent the worlds of art, music, film, literature and design.

“Sex Appeal” takes the readers through a slight narrative in a series of individually titled chapters: Music Is My Boyfriend, Emmanuelle, Ethan’s DNA, The Object of Their Affection, Sessions, I Still Love You, Under My Skin, In Sintesi, Great Expectations, Suddenly Last Summer and Brief Encounters.

CRUSHfanzine’s “Sex Appeal” will be launched with special events in resident cities New York and Paris. For the New York event, Le Bain at the Standard Hotel will host a release party on September 6th with a guest DJs Casey Spooner and Honey Dijon.

It's a vital skill to construct images that are clear and clean and sell…with no ambiguity. But it equally important to create images that provoke and inspire and require a decoding. The whole world, in a post-modern way of life is that way. Ask Stadium magazine.
