    really? i dont think so at all..i have almost every issue of nylon and it has gone from such an underground fashion mag to a seventeen teeny bopper type.

    well, maybe this is one of their weaker covers in the past? because this really just looks more so typical..red,black and white is a safe color scheme for design and i don't know, the cover just looks totally bland and boring.

    The first Nylon I ever bought had Lizzie Jagger on the cover.

    First time I see an old Nylon. Looks totally different than the pop culture magazine it is today. Looks so alternative.

    thanks for the radness that is vintage NYLON, tried to karma you koko...

    I WANT her shoes!


    I think that's precisely the reason it's such a stellar, stand out cover. the image speaks for itself. they didn't need to sell it with all of that atrocious neon vomit.

    There's almost a museum, still life quality to those images. Like the angle Mark shot Amber gives almost a heavy, unbalanced top heavy feel esp coupled with that oversize jacket she's wearing and the placement of the masthead ON her head. really draws the viewer in.


    I wonder what typeface they used for the coverlines? that was used a lot in the earlier issues. I like the clean, vaguely space agey look to it.

    This is so cool! Nylon was such a great mag. Reminds me of Details in the 80's, such a great rag until they ruined it and turned it into whatever it is today.
