Spring Fashion Issue —

The March fashion issue has arrived with spring. Spotlight on the moneymaking, the down-to-earth, and the instant indulgence demanded by a time- and money- challenged consumer, it seems like the right flash to re inject some castle in the sky and experimentalism into fashion. With this issue we rejoice the power of daring imagery, artistic image-making, and cinematic storytelling as explored through the complete scale of the spring collections-the mild and the murky, the gorgeous and mysterious, the stirring and the demanding.

Brainwave is taken from the cinematic greats who were dedicated to the chase of creating majestic-and even acute-visual experiences. Katy Perry stars in a Fellini esque drama created by Mikael Jansson. Craig McDean embraces the fortitude of Jean-Luc Godard and the French New Wave, while Jansson offers a faint, David Lynch-inspired take on the sweetness of the season. Elsewhere, Steven Klein re- imagines the psychiatric descent of actress Frances Farmer, and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott capture the extremes of the aristocratic English eccentrics in their series of fashion portraits.

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.
