Crash is a well-established biannual from France of considerable intelligence and pedigree, not to mention a very healthy circulation.
Founded by art theorists Frank Perrin and Armelle Leturcq in 1998, Crash believes that fashion is both emblematic of and driven by cultural mores in contemporary society. It seves up a balanced mix of progressive couture, art, music and cinema, with a keen eye on the upcoming or the next big thing.
