Purple Fashion
Purple Fashion must have its own thread.
It is a subcategory within Purple, but there are four issues that are Purple Fashion alone.

In my opinion, the sensitivity with which Purple treats and presents clothing is unequaled by anyone else. The photography is exceptional in capturing the best parts of the clothing it's presenting. This magazine has been formative, and an inspiration to me and is one of the main reasons I began to see fashion as something more than surface and trend. My love for thoughtful, sensitive fashion began with Purple.

Its voice is quiet, but visionary.

I find Purple to be a little too serious and dreary most of the time. Not to mention pretentious. A dash of color and a smile wouldn't hurt.

I am with MoM on this one. I wish there could be a magazine that finds a happy medium between serious & frivilous.

i used to like Purple a lot and i have most of the past issues.. it's been few seasons now that it bores me to tears, they keep repeating themselves in the less possible creative way, makes me sad really

thanks for the archives cerfas

MoM - I am not familiar with selfservice (is it american) but I do quite like i-D magazine. I think its better for guys than girls actually and it does have a very distinct 'street' vibe. I like French Vogue - I think it has a good mix of cerebral fashion and frivilous fashion. L'Officiel is good too. But both are in French which obviously takes more concentration than a english language magazine. All of the above are better than Uk Vogue (& US Vogue is just a joke). I find it more & more difficult to find a magazine I enjoy reading.

Lena - have you seen the most current one? The Chloe Sevigny story was soooo boring imo. Actually one magazine I bought recently that I quite liked is one called Crash - have any of you seen it - what did you think? I alos liked A Magazine (the yohji one).

^ Every interview I've ever read with Chloe has been so boring. She really just shouldn't talk. I understand her importance as a supposed fashion icon but she really just shouldn't open her mouth.

Crash is cool. But I can't read French! I like A Magazine as well but when does it come out? Once a year? Every six months? Whenever they get an issue together? I'd love to see it come out more often.

Thanks for the archives cerfas. I also find it a little too self consciously "poetic", but some of the photography is quite beautiful. For me, it's a little too banal on the whole though.

i-D is the only mag that does it for me really. I saw the Margiela A edition in the cafe in DSM a few weeks ago and thought it was really really dull, such a dissapointment. HT Yohji one is good. I think it's only annual.

I think Crash is quarterly. But I meant when does A come out.
