Dylan Xue: Avedon angularity meets latter day Beijing cool

When a girl gives the camera *this*, working out the intro text to her feature becomes so much easier. And then it goes something like this…

Dear Charlotte,

I simply wanted to say I love your play of proportions in this fetching Max Farago story you shot with Miss Jamie for the new issue of Modern Matter. I remain a fan of your modern mode of styling.

SPUR JAPAN's SNAP PERFECT MODELS

As long as there is fashion, there will be models.As long as there is fashion, there will be models.

Well that Japanese way of putting words together…it sometimes summarizes the sentiment in lyrical ways everyday English won't. I loved working with the Spur team on the 100 page booklet that essentially archived the magazine's 25 year history of model coverage. From the early days of off duty 90's supermodels like Linda, Nadja and Naomi, it was funny to see how on-duty that ideal of off-duty was.

And then it was especially odd to see my 7 years of Spur It-Girl archives encapsulated in this one booklet. The magazine's editors assured me there is a generation of young Japanese women who grew up reading that column, which can only make you appreciative of the clarity of time . And its perspective, as well as future business potential. There they were, starting from Agyness Deyn at the height of her cultural impact, all the way to Issa Lish, now at the rise of her cultural impact. In between there were Freja and Irina, Coco and Hilary, Anja, Suvi, Catherine, Kasia, Lara, Meghan, Abbey, Toni, Malgosia, Karmen, Fei, Fei, Lindsay and Arizona. That those girls have forged lasting careers is not only a testament to brilliant management on the part of great agents, but also to the tenacity and resilience of those girls in keeping their value in a tough, tough industry.

TI FLASHBACK: MODELSPOTTING, ART BARONS AND THE FACE OF THE ZEROES

Gemma Ward : In the Days When She Walked ShowsGemma Ward : In the Days When She Walked Shows

At Haru while having lunch with the nicest model manager you could imagine, the following happened. As usual, the talk had turned to agency gossip. Not malicious, or particularly competitive but just...idle. " Yeah and Gemma Ward's been looking particularly happy these days". he said in a fairly loud voice, "Cause as we all know she's not always the happiest camper" I sat facing the door, so I could see, literally as he spoke the approaching figure of...Gemma Ward, in these little denim hot pants and a totally non-descript tank top with that model staple, an army coat thrown over it. She looked great, tall and slimmer than the last time we glimpsed her with long tousled blonde hair, looking very much like a beautiful teenaged tourist. She was with her IMG agent. I completely blanched and my lunch companion followed my eyeline to its conclusion. At that point we burst out laughing.If this were a scene in a movie, the audience would go..."Yeah Right!" Poor Gemma probably felt over scrutinized at this point and whether under the weight of our gaze or by pure chance, Maja and Gemma soon elected to take an outside table. I waved hello as they went by and left it at that.
