HERE WE ARE THEN. THE NEW ISSUE OF SYSTEM. THE INSIGHT FROM THE INSIDE / YOHJI YAMAMOTO ON THE OUTSIDE. IT IS BETTER THAN BEFORE. AND BIGGER THAN BEFORE! IT TAKES YOU AS CLOSE TO THE CREATIVE PROCESS AS YOU CAN GET WITHOUT, YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY BEING PABLO PICASSO.
How cool is that? The man in the hat. Yohji Yamamoto. Photographed by Juergen Teller.
The interview is with Rick Owens. That's a lot of black. And as for the Hockney like dedication to smoking. Yohji's quote: "People my age have more future than young people." His mother is 103 years old. Not sure if she smokes.
Random pages (as there is too much of this issue for one IDEA newsletter). Willy Vanderperre photographing the Raf Simons and the xx collaboration. Very, very good.
Paolo Roversi shooting clothes with (probably) people in them. And the clothes (Moncler by Richard Quinn) are super styled by Ibrahim Kamara by the way.
People we love. Walter Pearce and Rachel Chandler of Midland Agency. Photographed by Ethan James Green.
And more peple we love. Alasdair McLellan vintage Stone Island story styled by Max Pearmain.
And hello 2009! The original folded card flyer for the first IDEA pop up store. The final pages of the issue are made up of 'How some of the industry got into the industry'. The big / lucky / hard won breaks that made it happen for Christopher Simmonds, Michel Gaubert, Amber Valletta, Joe McKenna, Kim Jones... and many more. It's an addictive read (greatly shortening the time spent on writing this newsletter).
More importantly. Get the issue. Copies will be super early pre-released at Dover Street Market London tomorrow (Friday), Dover Street Market Los Angeles for the weekend, Dover Street Market New York on Monday.
NEXT WEEK'S NEWS. NEXT WEEK'S SUPER NEW GUCCI BOOK. IT'S CALLED OVIPARITY. IT IS AUTHORED / AUTEURED BY YORGOS LANTHIMOS. YES, THE DIRECTOR OF THE LOBSTER AND THE FAVOURITE MADE A GUCCI BOOK. IT'S ALL OF YOUR CHRISTMASES!
The super cool doesn't fit together slipcase!
