they're probably getting back to you via snail mail... if you got the last issue, you know how much they like letter-writing!

still on the fence - seems to adopt some kind of 'serious' approach to style - but then again the piece in the last issue on that Iranian-American trustfund baby in Moscow was ridiculous.

The friendship between MARC JACOBS and SONIC YOUTH is a highly visible one: KIM GORDON is usually front row at his shows, THURSTON MOORE has appeared in MARC JACOBS advertising, and the band performed KOOL THING at the designer’s fall 2008 show, the one that has gone down in legend for starting dead on time, causing most of the invited audience to miss the presentation. First flowering of this friendship can be seen by watching the video for SUGAR KANE, which features a fashion show by MARC JACOBS at PERRY ELLIS, the label for which he created the infamous grunge collection which got him the sack, but which solidified his reputation. It is best to watch this video in full screen, as otherwise the image is a touch small.

Reader Mr. 5T3V3 D01N4CK suggested it is also worth watching the videoclip that accompanies “How to Do That”, a song from the little-known dance album called AOW TOU DOU ZAT that JEAN PAUL GAULTIER released in 1989

It is a great pleasure to announce the release of the new issue of FANTASTIC MAN, for Autumn and Winter 2010. The amazing Mr. BRYAN FERRY is on the cover and inside the magazine, photographed by JUERGEN TELLER and interviewed by PAUL FLYNN. The singer talks about his daily shaving routine, about being fabulous, about his new album, and much more!

that cover is pretty horrible but then it is by J Teller, whose work i dislike quite a lot. i don't like that the masthead isn't against white.

might pop out and see if i can find this.

Jumped the shark? this issue is really quite poor.

jed_, Monday, 27 September 2010 22:45 (ten years ago) link

+ fuck bryan ferry.

one year passes...

yeah i think FANTASTIC MAN has kinda lost it. the fashion is really dull, guys wearing expensive grey and black clothes and the quirkiness has become divorced from any kind of reality re. actual clothing, which would be fine if it was still sexy or funny. kudos on getting raf simons to be photographed and appear on a cover though. this issue at least is better than the deadly dull previous one with david fucking beckham on the cover.

on the other hand the gentlewoman is totally great. this issue and the last are lovely and amazing.

actually the "men of great britiain" thing was good eye candy and i enjoyed the fact that the scottish men were by far the hottest. also full 10 page spread modelled by my first bf was o_O.
