The Single Greatest Fashion Editorial Of Modern Times (IMHO)

"I believe in maniacs. I believe in type As. I believe that you’ve got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do. I believe you must betray your mistress for your work, you betray your wife for your work; I believe that she must betray you for her work. I believe that work is the one thing in the world that never betrays you, that lasts. If I were going to be a politician, if I were going to be a scientist, I would do it every day. I wouldn’t wait for Monday. I don’t believe in weekends.

If you’re headed for a life that’s only involved with making money and that you hope for satisfaction somewhere else, you’re headed for a lot of trouble. And whatever replaces vodka when you’re 45 is what you’re going to be doing."

- Richard Avedon - 1988

Reference Library: LEGENDARY Vogue EDITORIAL

That legendary grunge moment in fashion ! That grunge collection of Marc Jacob's for Perry Ellis that got him fired (and sent him on the road to Vuitton). That incredible 1992 Meisel shoot for US Vogue that counts as one of the most legendary editorials of all time. Here's Max's latest installment from his reference library.

The year was 1992. Kate Moss, Corrine Day, Juergen Teller, David Sims are all on their way up and are creating a new style of fashion out of London via The Face and ID. How will the gatekeepers of cool in NY react? For Marc Jacobs, the style of American bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana was like a gift from heaven, because with the music, came a very specific look. Marc takes the flannel and the thermals, the vintage dresses worn with combat boots and turns it into a deluxe collection in silk and cashmere with the prices to match. Steven Meisel takes the super-glamorous supermodels Nadja and Naomi and Kirsten and strips them of all the usual make-up for a very dressed down look. The Old Guard in fashion nearly lose their minds but the kids love it. It is one of the boldest statements ever seen in a mainstream magazine and that's why we rank it right up there as one of the fabulous editorials ever!
