Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Spring/Summer 2009
Remember what I told the folks over at Dolce & Gabbana/Swide when they interviewed me last week how fashion magazines are the new coffee table books? Well, a huge “care package” arrived on my desk yesterday and Kaoru Sasaki, the lovely and generous Editor-in-Chief of Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Japan (who I met during my trip to Tokyo), sent me the Spring/Summer 2009 issues of his magazines.
Terry Richardson and Barack Obama is on the cover of Commons&Sense Man. Click click click for a quick preview!
Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009
The much-awaited and highly-anticipated Vogue Paris cover featuring Anja Rubik is finally here. Although veteran Anja’s been around the fashion circuit for ages, it’s her first French Vogue cover.
Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin took the photo.
I’m not a big fan of studio shots on the covers of magazines but the world is going through a recession so it’s quite understable why more and more mags go through that route.
As much as I adore Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Paris, I feel this cover was a let down.
In any case, good job on Anja for this well-deserved cover. It’s about time!
