    This is the thread where you post articles that you find interesting or insightful, designers interviews and so on. It doesn't have to be new stuff, it doesn't have to be groundbreaking stuff, just words that you think might be worth a read or a discussion.

    This is where you post scanned articles/interviews from mags (along with a transcript if available, for legibility's sake).

    Don't forget to cite the source and date.


    Leave the fashion news and blurbs for RFT and The Runway & High Fashion Thread.

    Well I was planning on posting the MMM interview from next month's Dazed & Confused but i just read it and it fluff devoid of any interest (here it is), here's something else for now.

    An interesting snapshot of fashion history, Hedi has just left YSL and Raf has shut down his company, both have yet to leave an indelible mark on menswear, both on the cusp of big things but their iconic collections still ahead.

    Kinda funny too in light of the rivalry narrative that's been spun since their respective new appointments last year.

    And Raf seems to really like the idea of a demonstration, a sign of things to come ? (> Fall 2001 Riot Riot Riot > Spring 2002 Woe Onto Those Who Spit On The Fear Generation...The Wind Will Blow It Back)

    Here's another conversation of sorts. A correspondence between Maison Martin Margiela and (ever-so pompous) Malcolm McLaren

    There are more talks with Aitor Throup that are not formatted like a typical interview, but they have some more insights and sound bites from the designer about his work and influences on the same website.

    Yeah that interview is excellent for sure. The penultimate bit about comparing his clothing to toys is the real clincher for me. I was like "this guy is really doing what I want to see!" when I read that, hehe.

    I am also definitely down for an Aitor thread. In the middle of trying to structure the OP for one actually. Will probably PM you in a bit :).

    Think I should be able to scan some of the interviews from A Magazine curated by YY. There are quite a few interesting ones in there, but not all are with fahsion designers. Is it cool to post those too? Like the one with Charlotte Rampling and another with Paolo Roversi?

    I found a copy of the A magazine by YY for a decent price. Was thinking of grabbing it. Worth it?

    Yeah I definitely think so. Loads of cool photos (both fashion and otherwise) and some nice interviews.

    The first six issues of A Magazine are definitely worth it if you can find them for a non-extortionate price.
