Suzy Menkes in Preview Magazine???

HOLY JUNKO SHIMADA MARC JACOBS! Who knew Suzy Menkes writes for Preview, a fashion magazine in the third world? A friend just forwarded a scan of Suzy Menkes’ article (One Size Fits All) that appeared on this month’s Preview Magazine. I don’t usually read magazines because everything is available online and it’s weird because I remember reading THAT particular piece during fashion week (late September) on the International Herald Tribune website. I know, because I’m one of those many people who are anxiously waiting for Suzy’s reviews…

One Size Fits All by Suzy Menkes, Preview Magazine, November 2007

I love Suzy Menkes but something is not quite right...

What do you think?

—————

Update 4PM – FYI: I got an update via email!!!! According to Pauline Suaco-Juan, Editor-in-Chief
of Preview Magazine, they purchased both articles from New York Times
Special Features, which syndicates the International Herald Tribune in
Asia.

Proper copyrights, full attribution and credits were made on the issue itself. Enough with the emails already, mmmkay? At least Preview got Suzy in tow! Oi Vey! Haha!

  1. Copyright Infringement!
    That’s why I don’t buy local magazines. Most of the content are lifted from international publications.
    I stopped reading local and international magazines last year. Why buy magazines when you can read everything online for free?

  2. Hmmm
    I highly doubt that’s case because Preview is one of the biggest fashion magazines in Manila. Maybe they bought the rights?
    I don’t know. It’s just strange to see Suzy’s article there.

  3. But you’re right. I don’t really buy magazines anymore except for fashion editorials. Oh who am I kidding. V Magazine, Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris are my favourites.
    All I want for xmas is a Vogue Russia subscription and I’ll be a happy camper.

  4. there’s another article from the IHT on that same issue by alexandra seno. i don’t have the copy with me but i’ll send it when i can.

    THAT’S SAD.
    THERE ARE SO MANY TALENTED WRITERS IN THE PHILIPPINES AND THEY HAD TO COPY SOMEBODY ELSES WORK.

  6. “THERE ARE SO MANY TALENTED WRITERS IN THE PHILIPPINES AND THEY HAD TO COPY SOMEBODY ELSES WORK.”
    Sadly, you’re not one of them.
    What’s with the all-CAPS?

  7. i’m sure preview won’t have the guts to publish that story unless they have permission.

  8. I think Preview asked to use Ms. Menkes’ article for a fee and she probably agreed. Why does everyone have to think the negative angle? The Philippines isn’t as Third World as you think. Just go look at pictures of certain African countries and compare.

  9. Karylle beat me to it.
    According to the IHT, the contributor policy is:
    http://www.iht.com/info/contributor.php
    The International Herald Tribune (IHT) buys first-time publication rights from contributors. These rights include the worldwide right to publish the work in the print and electronic editions of the IHT and The New York Times (collectively, the “Newspaper”), as well as certain related rights.
    The Newspaper will have the exclusive rights to the work for a period of one month after its publication and non-exclusive rights thereafter. The contributor is free to sell the work for publication elsewhere after this one-month period, provided that its subsequent publication is accompanied by the source statement, “This work originally appeared in the International Herald Tribune.”

  10. jesus y’all, stop with the fighting!
    i don’t think there’s any way to find out what the real deal is unless someone from the IHT or Preview speaks out.

  11. sasa sasa

    don’t be delusional, jrothschild. summit can’t afford to compensate their writers well enough (mark my words) let alone pay for syndication.

  12. Here’s an update.
    Preview Magazine purchased both articles from New York Times Special Features, which handles IHT’s syndication — I was notified of this via email just now.
    Both articles are NOT “lifted”/”stolen”/ or infringing on anyone’s rights.
    So pleaseeeee for the life of god, stop the fighting and the emails.
    Thanks :)
