HINT HINT, INTERVIEW INTERVIEW

Lou Doillon by Terry Richardson for Interview August 08 via hintmag.comLou Doillon by Terry Richardson for Interview August 08 via hintmag.com

Fabien Baron
: Today one jumps between the worlds of art, fashion and entertainment all the time. Designers hire artists to work on their products, while artists want fashion people to be interested in their work, and they both care about fame the way Hollywood cares about fame. Where before these fields were very elitist, today they spread out everywhere. They're interacting more than ever, overlapping and becoming almost one. Interview will represent that. We can make a special fashion issue and be believable, or make a special art issue and be believable, or do entertainment.

Lee Carter: It seems like that's what Andy would've wanted.


Fabien Baron:
And it's what he did very well. He was able to mix glamorous and trendy on the same page, to show the worlds together as one. We can be the ambassadors of this vision.

Lee Carter :A big swirl.

For TI Ross Lovegrove is a great, great designer of the 21st century. At "Flexibility: Design In A Fast Changing Society at the Ex Carceri "Le Nuove" in Turin , Lovegrove contributed a rotating metal sculpture that beamed light throughout the room.
