Spring Fashion Issue —

As might be expected in an issue devoted to fashion, the March issue of Interview pulls out a no-holds-barred heavyweight performance. The headliner is Marc Jacobs’ interview with Lara Stone. Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott’s photos, styled by Ludivine Poiblance mix architectural structure and an air of fetishism, reiterating at a glance why Ms Stone is currently the supermodel de rigeur. Marc Jacobs’ conversation gets to grips with exactly who Ms Stone is as she candidly reveals her wild past and the journey she’s travelled.

New York’s First Lady of Fashion, Diane von Furstenberg, turns her worthy attention to the young American designer Daniel Wang who proves to be a straightforward hardworking guy. We encounter a rising star who still hangs out with his college friends whilst running a close-knit family business. It’s probably why he is much liked by all. Wang’s collection pieces pop up here and there in Mikael Jannson’s feisty black and white photos of Alexander Wang and his posse. Karl Templer’s styling, emphasizing the vibrancy of the young creatives, rather than using them a characterless dummies, acts as a nice segue into the issue’s other main theme: a profiling of a new youthful ‘Teen Spirit’ that seems to be in the air.

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.
