October 2010 —

October’s Interview offers us an essential portrait of the Siren from Streatham, Naomi Campbell, both in the form of Alas & Piggot’s photography styled by Karl Templer, and Tony Shafrazi’s interview with the eternal supermodel. The interview is accompanied by a stunning –and decidedly kinky- fashion shoot featuring Ms Campbell in all the hot looks of the season and touting a naked tattooed man toy as an accessory.

Elsewhere between the covers, Oliver Stone interviews scriptwriting hot property Dustin Lance Black, academy award winner for his script for Gus Van Sant’s ‘Milk’, on the eve of his directorial debut. On a similarly cinematic note, Terry Gilliam chats with rising heartthrob Andrew Garfield on what it feels like to be the new Spiderman, amongst other things. For those interested in film of a more unapologetically artistic bent, Ralph Gibson interviews controversial photographer and filmmaker Larry Clark whose harsh portraits of contemporary American life have never failed to cause a stir for the last four decades.

On the fashion side of the street, Renaissance man Pharrell Williams poses the questions to Peter Dundas, the perhaps unlikely choice of designer to continue the very particular tradition of the house of Emilio Pucci. For one thing, Peter Dundas seems certain to take things in a distinctly rock ‘n roll direction.

Also of note is the fun feature casting a rather anthropological eye over the Swatch phenomenon; the hot accessory of the 1980’s that revolutionized Swiss timepieces as an affordable and collectible accessory that has since grown into a stalwart stable.

Our Take —

Interview is in a category all of its own. Originating as Andy Warhol’s ultimate Pop Art gesture –the vehicle through which Andy might provide everyone with those legendary fifteen minutes of fame- Interview has managed to negotiate the tricky responsibility for any magazine originating as an art work. And it has largely prospered and triumphed in its salubrious history since its first appearance in 1969. Understandably tightly controlled by Warhol and his acolytes until nearly the end of the famed artist’s life, Interview has been kept on track by the same publishing house that acquired the title in 1987 shortly after Warhol’s death.

Living up to the singular spirit, flair and visual power of a magazine once produced by an artist famed for his stark, direct portraiture and his equally creative gang of collaborators can never be an easy task. Yet, somehow, even without Warhol, Interview has managed to encapsulate that very specific heady mix of celebrity, art, fashion, film and, needless to say, interviews. Interview continues to read like a who’s who of the hip and cool, a very particular publication built on the long experience of time spent at the coal face of chic.
