The Beijing Olympics are a fading memory now, but according to i-D‘s Tricia Jones, New Yorkers can thank the 2008 sports fest for the fact that the Soul i-D exhibition is up right now at Christie’s. Based on the book Soul i-D, which compiles the best of i-D magazine’s special projects, the Soul i-D exhibit was supposed to debut in Beijing parallel to the Olympics. Alas, as Jones explained at last night’s opening, there was a spread featuring the Dalai Lama. “That wasn’t going to fly,” she explained. “So I found myself with a show and no gallery.” Happily, a man with a gallery and no show was Azzedine Alaïa, who debuted Soul i-D at his eponymous space in Paris last year. Stints in London and Milan followed. Now New Yorkers get their chance to see the show, which features contributions from the likes of Bono, Terry Richardson (who shot the image above), Tracey Emin, Alexander McQueen, and Yoko Ono. Soul i-D, also sponsored by Gucci, is up at Gallery 6, Christie’s, Rockefeller Center, 20 Rockefeller Plaza, until July 30.
AnOther Fashion Book, a greatest hits compilation of the fashion photography that has been featured in AnOther Magazine and AnOther Man over the past eight years, makes its stateside debut today—and we have Karl Lagerfeld to thank for it. Well, not entirely. “It was actually Karl who came up with the idea of doing a book,” explains AnOther founder and editor in chief Jefferson Hack, who edited the collection. “I was at the atelier in Rue Cambon, and he said to me, you know, you have this amazing archive, you should compile something that can be available and accessible to people as a resource. And,” Hack adds, “he said he’d publish it.” Needless to say, that was a pitch Hack was eager to run with. The first in a series of three book to be published by Lagerfeld’s imprint 7L and distributed via Steidl, AnOther Fashion Book features work by photographers such as Terry Richardson, Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, and Nick Knight. A book of portraits from the magazines will follow this fall, and a collection of AnOther and AnOther Man interviews will round out the trilogy next year. Here, Hack talks to Style.com about stripping out, slowing down, hanging Kate Moss, and dancing.
One of the things that intrigues me about this book is that you’ve let the images stand on their own. There’s no layout, no dates, no captions—no suggestion, really, that they were ever published in a magazine.
That was one of the first decisions we made when we began working on the book—to strip the magazine element out. This isn’t a book about AnOther Magazine. It’s a book about photography, and we wanted it to feel timeless. So we’ve taken the most stirring images and laid them out simply and created a running order that’s non-chronological, nonlinear. And not even entire spreads, often—just selections. My hope is that people who have never seen a copy of AnOther will come to this book and find it compelling.
Just when we thought the whole trendy “I Tried To Be Terry Richardson But All I Got Were These Lousy Glasses” phase had fizzled out, something is going on with spectacles. Jenni Kayne had oversize plastic frames, Antonio Azzuolo used 60′s and 70′s Italian deadstock, and Scott Sternberg borrowed metal ones from Silver Lining Opticians. They’ve kind of 70′s detective and early 80′s working girl (like the chick in the best Cinderella screenplay ever The Secret of My Succe$s, but I digress). Who knew four eyes could be so sexy? What do you think? Would you wear them?
Donatella Versace can add international do-gooder to her resume. The blonde-and-bronzed designer visited the school she funded in earth-quaked Sanjiang, China, yesterday with local celeb Jet Li. (We’d like to make a joke about leather uniforms, but would be guilt-ridden about mocking charitable works.)
An overzealous bouncer either manhandled or protected a semi-scrubby Brad Pitt at a The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screening Monday night. The bouncer claims he was trying to protect Pitt from a rabid pack of photogs, or he wanted to get his Legends of the Fall fix for the week
Love ‘em or hate ‘em? Fashion spreads in November style rags get the worst and best treatment at New York magazine. Something sleazier was expected from Terry Richardson, as it should be.
