This whole Carine Roitfeld drama. It is the fashion scandal with the best legs in the best heels. But as a rumormonger, how to keep it spinning?

I love magazines but print...something about it has been starting to feel so ...antique. Beautiful , yes but beautiful like paintings in a museum . It wasn't that the format was the problem. I still love the smell, the feel , the presence of paper....the tactile joy thereof of turning page after page. But what has become difficult for me was that formulaic ...impersonal... content where more and more editors were bent on only discussing the advertisers in their pages and a short list of very established and therefore redundant talent in music, film and design. And then I got the new Qvest in the mail

We took an earlier look at the work of ex-Buffalo member, Judy Blame. Now Max , one of our fashion correspondents weighs in wonderfully on the legacy of Buffalo's founder, Ray Petri.
Early 1980’s through mid 1980’s – Ray Petri/Stylist for THE FACE MAGAZINE. The various editorials that Ray Petri created for THE FACE MAGAZINE during this time period were groundbreaking and still are influential to this day. He was inspired by street culture, ‘bad boys,’ Jamaican Ragamuffin culture, East Indians, blacks, punk whites, rude boys, mods, New Romantics, boxers, Bob Marley’s BUFFALO SOLDIER song, Vivienne Westwood’s Buffalo collection, Malcom McClaren’s BUFFALO GIRL song, and Native American imagery, resulting in a fashion movement labeled “BUFFALO”.
The editorials he created during this period jump started and influenced major industry people such as Jean Baptiste-Mondino, Mark Lebon, Jamie Morgan, Cameron McVey, Naomi Campbell, Neneh Cherry, Massive Attack, Bomb the Bass, Nellee Hooper,

"I wanted a lady name because everyone changed their name to one of the same sex, so I thought I'd confuse people. Judy was a nickname given to me by a friend, and Blame just sprang to mind one day. It sounds like a trashy b-movie actress from the 50's - a bleached blonde tart who only made one film and never got anywhere - I like that"
