PURPLE #38 - The 30yrs Issue
Purple Fashion is a magazine that knows that having a personality is about more than just being extroverted. Published in Paris under the eye of its charismatic Editor-In-Chief, Olivier Zahm, each issue is as decadent as his lifestyle is reported to be. Its articles and photoshoots ooze intimacy and somehow get inside places that many would dream to be. Indulgent? Perhaps. Typical? Definitely not. Purple Fashion manages to capture a ‘fashionable’ world in a way that subverts notions of superficiality and replaces it with a focus on personal expression and quality.
In this issue:
Purple celebrates its 30th anniversary and for this issue interweaves new editorial content with facsimiles of pages from past issues to show how different moments in time resonate and connect to each other. This issue tells the story of 30 years devoted to artists, designers, photographers, writers, cities and other facets that define the Purple World – such as night, philosophy, diversity, avant-garde, sex and politics. Throughout 30 parts full of photography, fashion, cool kids and nostalgia, the 30YRS issue features Elein Fleiss, Martin Margiela, Takashi Homma, Chloë Sevigny, Maurizio Cattelan, Dash Snow, Juergen Teller, Marlene Dumas and many many more. Accompanied by a special Urs Fischer Purple Book.
