Now that I’m free from the frettings of ‘Will I be able to move that to the new place without injuring somebody?’, I’m now at liberty to buy the heaviest, chunkiest fashion magazines that a lot of people might view as potential-unsuspicious-murder weapons (something that Cluedo overlooked I think because if somebody was whacked hard with a copy of Self Service or a particularly ad-filled US Vogue, me thinks they wouldn’t be feeling too great…). So the new fall/winter 2008 issue of is out now I think in Paris and until it’s out in London, I can salivate over the cover on . The cover subject of a naked Mario Sorrenti at the feet of Kate Moss wasn’t really my main point of focus though….
Minus the Moss, naked Sorrenti and all I was staring at was the
beautiful bit of Balmain AW08-9 that is curvy in all the right areas
with plenty of provocative detailing…. that lace, that
metallic sheen, the tightness… quite possibly my favourite piece from the whole collection which has admittedly been worn by everyone left right and centre.
Balmain aside, content on Benjamin Cho, Daphne Guinness, racy
photographer Araki and Lou can’t-fault-her Doillon also beckons.
Here’s to augmenting my murder-weapon-mags…
