Purple Magazine #27
Text in English
It’s been worth the wait! Purple Fashion Magazine is back with their almost 500 page atlas of fashion, art, photography, essays and interviews, – a mesmerizing visual journey into everything that is exciting, exceptional and essential in the fashion world (in its broadest and most inclusive sense). Purple’s outstanding capability to broaden and explore fashion’s dimensions and horizons into the world of art and theory proves itself again in this spring/summer issue:
Purple magazine #27 looks at the relationship between sex and fashion, critically, curiously and emphatically. In the words of Olivier Zahm, editor-in-chief: „Fashion design today is the transgression of the sexual transgression and is truly helping people to express their sexual identity with confidence and originality. This is a captivating but subtle and even delicate evolution – especially among young designers and generations – as the fashion world adapts to a new erotic landscape outside of the familiar clichés and conventions.“
Including interviews with 20th Century Women director Mike Mills, artists Julio Le Parc and Vanessa Beecroft, fashion and furniture with Rick Owens, a conversation between photographer William Eggleston and Glenn O’Brien, portfolios by Ryan McGinley and John Currin, a portrait of the owner of Berlin’s legendary Paris Bar, a photographic homage to Chris Marker by Ed Templeton, an interview with contemporary French philosopher Tristan Garcia … and a special edition Purple Book by Carsten Höller.
