Good God, . This is bad on so many levels!! I admire their gusto for going with this, but I'm not a fan, I'm afraid. With a gun next to my head, I'd take Kendall's cover purely because of the calming motifs and colours.
Probably there will be two edits, one by Kibbler, and the other by M&M.
What the hell is this exactly?
Wth it's so bad, what where they thinking?!
And I don't know what's funnier, the fact that they gave Gigi and Kendall pigs faces or Kendall still trying to convince us that she's a real model... extract from her interview:
Is this the art issue? pics by Kibbler and intervention by...?
I prefer the elements on Gigi´s cover, also her "styling" seems more fashionable.
The images itself.. my goodness. This is not art. This is a joke. If this were the funny issue, I would've understood it.
I seriously hate the notion magazines have that by having an "Art Issue" they could easily get away with putting something so weird on the cover. That's. not. art.
And where's the fashion? Where's the glamour?
And someone please explain to me the nose. From where I'm standing, it's rather insulting.
Finally somebody trolls those two.
Two bland models with Snapchat filters on the cover. NEXT! W is losing it slowly with putting both of these non selling socialites on the covers.
Also, LOL at Kendall staying a "shitty" apartment in NY. I'm sure it was a $4000 a month "shitty" apartment. She's so vial and vapid. I can't stand her at all. Can't wait till her time is up.
cover and ed
Well, this is supposed to be ballsy, huh? Good God.
Is this the November issue or the Art supplement?
I don't know much about the artists behind the cover and edit, Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin, but this is an absolute mess that does not translate well on the a magazine cover. I will not begrudge the edit because of the issues theme, even if there isn't much fashion, but this simply does not work for a cover.
I wonder if they intended for the DRAFT image to look like a circle jerk.... W Magazine says that's a "human-hamster water bottle" in the middle, but it looks like lube...
Well, they are legitimate artists, to be honest. And it is somewhat nice to see the new guard getting a massive platform like this. It will always be a challenge for installation-oriented artists to translate their message to picture form, and maybe that is what bothers me most here. But in another way I personally feel that what we are seeing here sort of reflects the state of American art right now. Contrived, gaudy, and very much excessive.
I've made peace with W and, to some extent, Numéro's art issues. It will never be solely about fashion. And glamour is most certainly the last superlative on their agenda. The idea is to have these two worlds meet. And since fashion is currently all about Kendall & Gigi, this is what we'll get.
Maybe the nose is an allusion to the Snapchat filter?
It sounds like it's indeed the Art supplement!! See Tonchi's letter below:
This is so beyond ugly that only the word disgusting comes up to me... Who the hell let this happen?
And do magazines realize they're shoving these socialites down our throats so much that many people actually hate these two now?
10th Anniversary Art issue with Kendall and Gigi... what a laugh?! ;-)))
What on earth is this?
