When you have a top raft of writers like Richard Buckley, Chandler Burr, Jo-Ann Furniss, Anthony Haden-Guest, Edwin Heathcote and Glenn O’Brien crafting text alongside the imagery of Cédric Buchet, Jamie Hawkesworth, Alasdair McLellan, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti and Willy Vanderperre, that's an event. Now wrap (and warp) the whole package in the freestyle design of M/M (Paris) by Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak and you have the magazine as mass market art object.

"Visionaire first featured the designs of Lee ALexander McQueen in 1996. Since that time, he has been a continuous inspiration and a presence in Visionaire. McQueen's special commissions are among our most treasured contributions. His daring designs and challenging ideas of fashion have consistently excited and provoked us. In 2003, McQueen came to our SoHo office and gallery to discuss collaborating aon an issue of Visionaire…an issue that never came to be. This is our tribute to him."
Stephan Gan, Cecelia Dean and James Kaliardos

'You can't be afraid to suffer. If you're afraid to suffer, you'll never be an artist. Editors used to say "Bob, why are you so difficult?" And I'd say "Listen, I'm not just a photographer -you don't understand -I'm an artist who happens to use a camera. You're not dealing with me right, you're talking to me like I'm some photographer. I don't know how to do what you're asking me to do. I only know how to do what I do. You're making me feel stupid and I'd appreciate if you wouldn't do that."
Bob Richardson in Big #14, 1996.

Does the designer think it's more exciting, more fun, if he puts bags everwhere? Is he trying to tell us that he's very good with accessories? I don't get it!
The New VHI hits the stands yesterday and it is champion. When Carine Roitfeld assumed the editorial chair skeptics tsk, tsked as if to say runnning both Paris Vogue and Vogue Hommes was a case of overextension. Last laugh goes to Madame because she is turning out one of the freshest and frankest men's mags on an overcrowded market. The James Franco cover is a sell. The "Fur Men" edit by Carine and Testino features all the skin the happily superficial will need. David Sims and Joe McKenna collaborate on a beautiful story titled "Ray Of Light" , an ostensible tribute to legendary stylist Ray Petri that ends up looking oddly like an early 90's Meisel sitting w. the great male model Sean Bohary. Hottie Lara Stone prances around with no pants on for Sorrenti. The video of Lara bouncing uncontrollably at the SS08 Prada is hilarious. Cleavage! That has not been seen on a directional runway in a decade.
