In these fascinating and revealing interviews, influential figures from every aspect of the world of fashion share their stories, insights, and experiences.
Journalist Jan Kedves isn’t afraid to ask a pointed question, and his subjects certainly aren’t afraid to answer. Whether it’s Bruce Weber discussing nudity, dogs, and Clint Eastwood; Juergen Teller talking about daring shoots with Charlotte Rampling, Victoria Beckham, and the one time he may have gone too far; or Raf Simons waxing nostalgic about his days and nights as a club kid, this collection of interviews goes beyond the latest trends to distill what makes its subjects tick. A fashion-world insider in his own right, Kedves knows how to talk to models, designers, photographers, and artists, sharing his own opinions and recollections as a way of drawing out even the most reticent. As a result, his conversations with the likes of Pierre Cardin, Malcolm McLaren, Rick Owens, Viviane Sassen, Helmut Lang, and Veruschka can feel as intimate as a late-night gabfest, and every bit as fun.
