Winter 2010 —

Fault’s editors Stephanie and Nina Geoghegan draw our attention to their focus on creative collaborations in their opening address of this issue – husband and wife punky psychedelia Von Haze and artists Jake and Dinos Chapman, for example- though the result is actually a lot more of an eclectic amalgam than a disciplined focus on the topic. What is particularly notable about Fault, very clearly demonstrated in this issue, is that it is now rare to see a magazine that gives equal weight to fashion and music cultures. Harking back to the heydays of magazines like The Face or Blitz, there is something refreshing about the way in which Fault’s young editorial team keep musicians on the same centre stage as fashion.
On the whole, the fashion has a restrained grown-up quality to its presentation that, as in the old 1980’s fave titles, was often a little out of synch with the edgy fanzine quality to the music coverage.

Art also plays a large part in this issue ranging from the interview with The Chapman Brothers on one end of the international art established artist spectrum through to young talent.

Our Take —

Fault is a fairly new quarterly magazine augmented by an annual limited edition hardback book published out of London. The magazine came about when a group of young creatives with a bold vision secured the support of an entrepreneurial publisher with a background in high-end limited edition books on art, design, collectibles and luxury objets.

Fault addresses a young intelligent creative audience with a precocity that they are probably likely to share with the talent running it. Sophisticated, hip and knowing – perhaps a little too knowing at times- its feel is sleek, professional and lavish and is almost certainly likely to strike a chord with its target audience. Focussing on fashion, music, celebrity, photography and other creative disciplines, it offers a grown-up clarity in its structure and art direction that leans towards the classic fashion magazine aesthetic with a young twist. There is no agonised attempt to be interestingly anti-social or painfully weird here; it’s about and for people with aspirations within the tried and tested structures of blue-chip media. Furthermore, despite the youth of the editorial team – and indeed many of the younger talents it profiles – it’s already proven itself fully capable of pulling in some weighty contributors and meaty content.
