TWENTY YEARS AND WHAT AN ADVENTURE IT HAS BEEN. WHAT DO WE REMEMBER MOST? FIRST AND FOREMOST, THE PEOPLE WE HAVE MET: KARL LAGERFELD TAUGHT US NEVER TO LOOK BACK AND THAT DOING IS WHAT MATTERS MOST IN LIFE. DOING AND ACTING, IN EVERY DIRECTION, NEVER GLANCING IN THE REAR-VIEW MIRROR, OR TO THE SIDE, ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD. COMME DES GARÇONS FOUNDER REI KAWAKUBO ACTS OUT HER DRIVE TO REINVENT HERSELF WITH EVERY COLLECTION. AS HER WORK RECEIVES A RETROSPECTIVE AT THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART IN NEW YORK THIS MAY, WE HAVE DEDICATED THE COVER OF THIS ISSUE TO THE JAPANESE DESIGNER,
WITH PHOTOGRAPHY TAKEN BY HER LONG-TIME COLLABORATOR JULIEN D’YS AND EMBODIED BY ARTIST/MODEL LILY MCMENAMY.

YES, MORE THAN A FEW PERSONALITIES HAVE MARKED US, INCLUDING GENIUSES LIKE KARL AND REI. OR SERGE LUTENS, WHO GAVE US AN EXCEPTIONAL WELCOME AT HIS HOME/WORK OF ART IN MARRAKESH. THESE CREATORS BUILD THEIR OWN WORLD,
THEIR UNIVERSE, NEVER SETTLING FOR IMITATION OR REFERENCE… THEIR KIND IS RARE, BUT FOR US THEY INSPIRE ENOUGH AMBITION TO CONTINUE PUBLISHING FOR TWENTY MORE YEARS… THEY STAND AS THE EQUALS OF ARTISTS LIKE OLIVIER MOSSET, EXILED IN TUCSON, ARIZONA, OR JULIO LE PARC… WE SENT TOP MODEL KAROLINA KURKOVA TO EXPLORE HIS RETROSPECTIVE AT THE PEREZ ART MUSEUM… JONATHAN LITTELL, AUTHOR OF « THE KINDLY ONES, » GIVES US A RARE INTERVIEW TO COINCIDE WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS DOCUMENTARY ON CHILD SOLDIERS, « WRONG ELEMENTS. » KIYOSHI KUROSAWA DIRECTS HIS VERY FIRST « GHOST FILM » IN FRANCE AND CONJURES UP THE REINCARNATED SPIRIT OF ERIC ROHMER, BATHED IN JAPANESE MYTHS. IN THE SPIRIT OF CRASH, KEEP CREATING COLLISIONS, CHANCE ENCOUNTERS, BETWEEN ART AND FASHION,ELIMINATE BORDERS AND, ESPECIALLY, PREJUDICE.
