It's just their latest issues, it didn't used to be bad, in fact it was a great outlet to see everything in the 'world' of a designer, what inspires him, what's been remarkable in his/her career, it wasn't about the finished product and the celebration of possessing a piece and those that get to purchase it but all about its creator and his creative mind. Up to Tisci's issue, I feel like they still managed to achieve this quite well, and this is an "extension" of ABCDE, so it's really been the last 3 issues (out of a great legacy of.. 15 issues?) that have been absolute trash. I feel a little bad for them. I think they should go the same way ABCDE did, with dignity and integrity, instead of resorting to this and making such a bold statement of what they claimed to be and what they need to be now.

I had Valli, Proenza Schouler and Kris van Assche issues. every issue has it's own story with almost different editorial team. I suggest you should not see it as a fashion magazine, it's more like a serial book of image collection from every designer.

^ That's very true. However A still manages to have a distinctive vibe with most of the collaborators though I'm not into the Mulleavy sisters and their aesthetic which seems to attract a 'indie/hipster' audience. I did enjoy the Valli issue and was initially surprised by the choice so I'll give this issue a go but the previews are not enticing.

I'm kind of excited to see the outcome of this issue. I really love Rodarte to start with, their whole world, etc and the collaboration Elle Fanning really suits the vibe. I just saw Kirsten Dunsts pics, and even though they are nice, and I get what you guys are saying, but I think it's just redundant of Elle's, and makes this concept kind of boring... but I'll wait for more to really make myself an opinion.
