PURPLE #34 THE LOVE ISSUE OUT WORLDWIDE

The Dior Cruise cover story by Laura Coulson, featuring Maria Grazia Chiuri’s interview with Olivier Zahm for Purple #34 the Love Issue.

”It’s the same in fashion, it’s the same in music, it’s the same in dance. When you have the love to do something together and to create something artistic, I think that we can understand each other. That’s what I want to say. The real beauty is art — because art helps us to understand each other.” — MARIA GRAZI CHIURI

The Givenchy cover story with Matthew Williams.

⁠”I think that love is one of the most motivating things in life, and we need it to battle all the fear that’s out there right now — and the frustration, like you said. Love is a powerful thing. I feel like there are so many different types of love, too. Having children… I have unconditional love for them.” — MATTHEW WILLIAMS

Purple PRESENTS: New Pandemics SS21

New Pandemics, is a casting and management agency in New York City. The agency was founded to increase LGBTQ+ visibility in the fashion and entertainment industries – where despite what one would think, was sorely lacking in LGBTQ+ representation.

Each season, the roster of talent is photographed not only in accordance with fashion week, but to also document the many faces of the LGBTQ+ community in New York. Many of the talent are artists and creatives who will no doubt leave their mark on the city and culture as a whole.

This season, after so much isolation we used the backdrop of NYC and explored it as more of a landscape, the streets once crowded with tourists... Read More

Courrèges has announced the appointment of designer, NICOLAS DI FELICE, as Artistic Director.

He commented on his appointment, saying: “I’ve always dreamed of Courrèges, with its radical and enveloping universe. It is a house which means a lot to me and in which I see myself. Its simplicity, clarity, not to mention its optimism—I am honoured to keep these values alive, and I hope to do so with as much passion and enthusiasm as the House’s founder”

Di Felice did his studies at La Cambre in Brussels, and spent years as the protégé of Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton.

Eckhaus Latta x Ugg collaboration

Purple is happy to share a selection of the campaign images from the latest collaboration between Eckhaus Latta and the UGG design team.

The collaboration was initially presented at Eckhaus Latta’s Spring / Summer 2020 runway show, with all of the models sporting the eight pairs from the capsule collection. For the campaign, the duo, and photographer, Zoë Ghertner, ventured out to Lake Piru in Calfornia’s Los Padres National Forest to shoot the models in the collection while floating on a dock.

“It was very exciting to think about a UGG shoe for the summer because usually it’s a winter shoe. This dive into the unknown was a lot of fun.”—Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta

Imitation of Christ Relaunch in LA

Exclusive shots from Imitation of Christ’s Relaunch 2020 titled “Americans Not Allowed in Paris”.

Originally conceived as an art collective in 2000, Imitation of Christ was founded by former art students Tara Subkoff and Matthew Damhave. Subkoff had dropped out of art school and had worked as an actress prior to forming the project. The project, according to Subkoff, was quickly “confused” by many to be a fashion line, which led to her developing runway shows. Their shows were often theatrical, political and guerilla style.

Tara Subkoff has relaunched the brand with three young artists Lulu Syracuse, Jersey Bond, and Hudson Schaetzke — creating hand-sewn looks from vintage clothing from their closets, and staging a protest show... Read More

With cinched tailoring, larger-than-life flares with crinoline cages and intricate corsetry, all thriving in opulence in an animated masterpiece. Giant wide-brimmed hats, from hand appliqué silk over 1 meter in diameter were brought back from Reed’s first year Central Saint Martins... Read More
