The same quality as a Dutch still life.
Gia Carangi was an American fashion model during the late 1970s and early 1980s. After she became addicted to heroin, Carangi’s modeling career rapidly declined. She later became infected with HIV and died at the age of 26. Her death was not widely publicized and few people in the fashion industry knew of it.

Hussein Chalayan’s 2009 spring/summer collection. Old, but classic nonetheless. Where J.G. Ballard’s Crash is cerebral and pop art and John Chamberlain’s automobile usage is corny, Hussein Chalayan manages to make something so sexy and graceful, as if burning hot metal was draped on the model’s body. SICK.
Oh. Oh. Oh.
Arthur Cravan was known as a pugilist, a poet, a larger-than-life character, and an idol of the Dada and Surrealism movements. After his schooling, during World War I, he travelled throughout Europe and America using a variety of passports and documents, some of them forged. He declared no single nationality and claimed instead to be “a citizen of 20 countries”. Cravan set out to promote himself as an eccentric and an art critic, though his interest was showing off a powerful, striking personal style rather than discussing art. He staged public spectacles and stunts with himself at the centre, once acting on the front of a line of carts where he paraded his skills as a boxer and singer, although he never pursued either of these activities on stage with anyone else.
He’s a master of the vanishing act and reinvention. First he dressed the stars at the Oscars, then he sold art to the rich, and now he’s a movie director. Every time he disappeared and changed his name, leaving behind a trail of suspicion. Read the story here.

Lucas Ossendrijver, the 37-year-old Dutch-born Lanvin men’s wear designer, has an international resume to rival most diplomats. After graduating from the Fashion Institute Arnhem (ex alumni include Ossendrijver’s compatriots Viktor & Rolf), he skipped from Kenzo, to the German-Greek Kostas Murkudis, and then to Dior Homme in the Hedi Slimane years, before being charged in 2006 with translating Alber Elbaz’s success at Lanvin to the men’s market.
Antony Price is a London fashion designer who is best known for glamorous evening wear and suits, and for the seventies icon of the cap sleeve t-shirt (trading under the Plaza label for the premium price of £6, this was quickly ‘ripped off’ by numerous other manufacturers). Price has collaborated with a number of musical performers, including David Bowie, Steve Strange, and Duran Duran, but is best known for his close working relationship with Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music, whose respective ‘looks’ were defined by Price’s designs.
Robert Rabensteiner, L’Uomo Vogue fashion editor. Such masculinity and softness at the same time. Sick!
