Issue 5 - Spring/Summer 2010 —
Ponytail’s current issue gets on with its mix of fashion, lifestyle and culture. Its elegant and dramatic fashion stories in the current issue show that it knows how to balance the visual candy with equally strong feature content.
For example, Shira Levine’s article on the somewhat overlooked Desmond Cadogan shows the magazine’s intelligent editorial in motion. A former Joffrey Ballet dancer, Desmond hit NYC in the 1980’s to find fame and fortune. Painted by Basquiat, dated by Haring and pushed down the catwalk by Gaultier, Mugler and Saint Laurent, Levine’s article and interview with Cadogan provide a wonderful portrait of an insider and muse caught up in exciting times.
Meanwhile, back in the fashion arena, there are a few treats in store. Noteworthy example’s include Tom Allen’s shoot styled by Christian Stroble with a whiff of Theda Bara-style 1920’s Hollywood about it.
